Self-Discipline as an Important Issue

Are you a discipline person? The true answer is at you yourself. Every human being wants to be successful in life. Ask almost anyone – even a small child – and they will probably share some grandiose plan or other they have to ensure that they achieve their goals and dreams. Yet, in spite this common desire for success, those of us who actually go on to become successful are very few with the vast majority achieving little or nothing in their lives. The underlying reason for this is mainly due to lack of selfdiscipline.

All successful men and women are highly disciplined in the important work that they do. All unsuccessful men and women are undisciplined and unable to control their behaviors and their appetites. And when you develop the same levels of high, personal discipline possessed by the most successful people in our society, you will very soon begin to achieve the same results that they do.

So, what is self-discipline? According to Elbert Hubbard, “Self- discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.” So, self discipline is a most needed and useful skill that everyone should possess. Self discipline gives you the power to stick to your decisions and follow them through, without changing your mind, and is therefore, one of the important requirements for achieving goals.

Successful people plan their work, and work their plan.They take the time to think through their responsibilities before they begin. They make clear decisions which they then implement immediately. They get a lot more done in a shorter period of time than the average person. And it all has to do with their disciplines.

Self-discipline is a skill and a habit that can be learned by practice. Every time you practice a little self-discipline, you become stronger and stronger. Bit by bit, you become more capable of even greater disciplines. As you become a totally self-disciplined individual, your entire future opens up in front of you like a broad highway. Everything becomes possible for you and your future becomes unlimited.
