Key Ideas

Discipline and freedom

There is a strong connection between the notions of discipline and freedom: with enough discipline, you will eventually end up having the things you want.

Self-control and a goal-oriented attitude can go a long way together if you know how to combine them.

Keep going towards your goal

While discipline is necessary to achieve your target, so is the fact of removing any bad habit or rewarding yourself whenever you have accomplished something.

Making a plan for your daily tasks can prove life-saving, as it will enable you to keep track of both your progress and mistakes.

Let discipline and freedom help you reach the next level

While staying in your comfort zone is always easy, it does not always lead to success. On the other hand, being disciplined when working on reaching your goal does.

Your philosophy about self-discipline

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. 

Internalize delayed gratification

When you are not disciplined, you know only one part of the equation: immediate gratification (our desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay).

But delayed gratification (resistance to the temptation of an immediate reward in preference for a later reward) is so much better in the long turn.

Holding Yourself Accountable

Make yourself accountable for what you do or don’t do. You don’t have to do things to prove something to others.

Make a To-Do list with your goals, intentions and proposed actions, and try to stick to it.

Being Honest

If we are not honest in our communication due to any internal fear, we are not taken seriously. People can tell when we are not honest.

There is no need to hide anything or play the victim card. Honesty seems difficult as it requires humility, but if followed, it is easier to be self-disciplined.

Choosing to flight

Dealing with difficult situations can make your life so much harder that at some point you might just decide to give up on your dreams and ambitions. However, it is exactly this behavior that leads to you eventually failing.

Choosing to run from responsibilities and challenges means choosing to stay always in your comfort zone, a fact that guarantees you no success whatsoever.

Keep fighting with your outcome in mind

Whenever you feel stressed or overwhelmed, just imagine a positive outcome to your challenging current situation. Soon enough, if you keep fighting for that outcome, it will become true.
