How to Build Self Discipline?
Knowing why you want to do something is very important. So a strong reason plays a big role in leading you the way.
State clearly what you want to achieve
Your goals determine your path. You already know why this is your goal. Now clearly put measurable terms for your goal.
Know what is required to achieve your Goal
Every goal requires certain efforts to be taken in a consistent manner. Know & state them clearly. Let them be a part of your daily routine. It can even be meditation as well to keep you in a good space mentally.
Design your routine
Now design your routine keeping in mind the above parts. Design a practical routine giving yourself breathing space & space to enjoy what you love doing as well.
Many a time we set a routine & keep following. But there might come a distraction that might set us off the routine. That is when we have to exercise self control. We must stop that moment and differentiate what is necessary & what is not.
Practice with Discipline
Now comes the implementation part. You have to follow what you have set for yourself with utmost self discipline. There might be times when you would struggle. Acknowledge & make efforts to overcome them. Practice, practice, practice.
Measure your progress
Keep a check on your routine. You would fail. But keep moving ahead. Make corrections. And repeat. Once you are on track & understand the value of consistent work, you would not leave it.
Life is a journey. We can take any path & walk anyway. But self discipline makes us walk the path which gives meaning to our life and leads us to our desired destination. If not anything, you don’t procrastinate & start taking action. Life gives us opportunities, but we have to take action to prepare ourselves to grab them. Discipline & self control can prove to be the best tools if you have the intention.
