You have to avoid the temptations that are stopping you from being a better version of yourself. For instance, you have to avoid that one slice of Pizza on your cheat day. You have to resist hitting “snooze” when the alarm hits at 6:00 a.m. You have to stop yourself from texting that toxic person who broke your heart.

I know it sounds tough and boring. You may be thinking there’s no harm in making small exceptions. But, you must have noticed that you often fail to control all these temptations. This is where the self-discipline kicks in to save the day.
