Self-Discipline Hacks That Can Make A Difference
If you take a look at your life right now, what is the reason you are not as successful, happy, or healthy as you could be at this point in your life? Could self-discipline be the problem?
Has your life felt a little too out of control?
Maybe there are too many demands on your time and resources.
People at work need something now, and your mother keeps calling asking when you’re going to come to visit next.
Things are coming at you from all sides, and you desperately need a way out.
Believe it or not, the answer lies in something as simple as self-discipline.
By taking charge of yourself, you likewise take charge of your life.
Self-discipline means you’re making decisions that keep your feet on the path that you’ve chosen for yourself.
And while the demands on your time might still be there, you can feel more in control.
Need some help getting started?
Below you will find a list of some quick hacks that will set you on the road to freedom through self-discipline.
1 – Pick a start date.
Research has found that by setting a concrete date and putting it on your calendar, you have a higher chance of success.
So chose the date and write “Freedom” in that space on your calendar.
2 – Understand why you’re doing this.
Create a list of reasons why you want to become more disciplined.
Use that list to create affirmations and then use those often to keep yourself motivated.
3 – Use creative visualization.
Imagine yourself with self-discipline.
How does that life look? How does it feel?
By seeing your self-disciplined life in your mind’s eye, your brain believes it is possible.
4 – Deal with temptation.
If what you’re trying to use self-discipline to correct (like eating better) involves tangible objects, then remove those items.
For example, get rid of the junk food in your cabinets, because they will become a temptation.
If it’s an intangible for example, a person you can’t say no to, then write a script of how you’d like that particular conversation to go.
That way you already have the words to say no when you need them.
5 – Grab a snack.
Willpower goes out the window when your blood sugar is low.
Ask any person with diabetes about a time when they crashed, and you’ll find out just how much low blood sugar affects brain processes.
Even for people who do not have diabetes, low blood sugar can have a serious effect on your ability to carry through with your plans.
A quick carb-loaded snack or even a small piece of candy might be just what you need to get back on track.
6 – Hang out with the cool crowd.
By surrounding yourself with self-disciplined people, you create for yourself a support group as you set forth on your journey.
Sometimes all it takes is someone to mentor you through the rough spots.
Know that there will be obstacles
Don’t kid yourself, becoming self-disciplined is hard work.
Nothing worth having comes easy.
That’s just part of life.
You will have to make sacrifices in the form of time, effort, pain, and hard work if you want to succeed.
There will be many setbacks.
And any time you get close to finally succeeding, there will be some more adversity testing how bad you really want it.
Only after passing one more test, and then another, will you find the success you’re looking for.
One of the great tragedies of life is that most people give up right before achieving success.
They already made it to the five yard line, and all they need is one final push to make the touchdown and bring home the sweet victory.
But right before they do that, there is one final obstacle standing in their way – one last failure that they need to overcome.
Way too many people give up right then and there, without realizing how close they are.
Whenever you encounter failure and adversity, keep going!
Success is supposed to be hard because that’s what makes it so special.
If it was easy, anybody could do it.
But you can make it a lot easier for yourself if you set yourself up for success from the start.
This is your chance to separate yourself from the people that don’t want it as bad as you.
The only way to grow as a person is by facing the biggest challenges in life and enduring long enough to succeed.
Look at all of the successful, powerful, inspirational people in your life.
Yep, they all failed. Multiple times.
But what sets them apart from the people still trying to make it is that they kept going.
It’s not really failing, if you get back up and keep trying.
You only truly fail, when you give up.
No matter how long it takes or how hard it gets, remember who you’re doing this for – You!
And if you keep that in mind, you’ve already won half the battle.
