“Be a student, not a follower. Don’t just go do what someone says. Take interest in what someone says, then debate it, ponder it and consider it from all angles.”
For most people, self-discipline is hard labor. It’s something to despise. But if you approach self-discipline with that attitude, it’s pretty hard to develop it.
Self-discipline is not hard at all. The lack of self-discipline is hard.
If you don’t know your reward yet, and you simply have no relevant experience to get to like self-discipline, leverage what you know.
For example: if you don't know what abundance means, because you have never experienced it, you probably know what financial struggles mean. Work from there.
You do what you have to. If self-discipline is an option for you, it will remain an option forever. Fix your personal philosophy.
You won’t have a habit if you don’t show up every day.
Your self-discipline has its root in your habits. They make us who we are. And changing one’s habits is the most reliable way to change yourself and your life.
Developing self-discipline via daily habits is so natural. If you have something to do every day, excuses and procrastination won’t have much power.
