Develop the Ability to Reach Your Goals

January 14, 2018 | By More

As we step into 2018 – are you looking at reaching goals and creating new levels of success? The ability to control yourself may just be the most important skill you can have!! You probably already know how to get in great shape, eat properly, find a better-paying job, and succeed in a lot of other ways. The problem is, you may not be doing those things.

What you lack is enough discipline. Discipline allows you to use what you know. Without it, you’re just a dusty library of information.

Develop the discipline necessary to excel in life with these strategies:

Rest is important. Fatigue is a killer of discipline. Have you ever noticed that your discipline is weakest at night? That’s when you’re more likely to waste time. You’re more likely to eat poorly. You’re more likely to send an ill-advised text message to your ex. If you have a task to complete that requires discipline, schedule it when your energy is at its peak.

Exercise. Exercise isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the development of discipline. Exercising regularly is challenging both physically and mentally. It’s not easy to get yourself to exercise every day. The slight physical discomfort also requires discipline to endure. You also have the benefit of enhancing your health at the same time.

Get organized. Getting and staying organized is another gentle way to build your discipline. Start with just one part of your home. Declutter and clean. Then move on to another part of the house. Clutter also saps your discipline and willpower.

Meditate daily. From a distance, meditation looks easy. After all, how hard can it be to just sit there and focus on your breathing, right? Meditation teaches focus and the ability to be resilient when you’re emotionally and physically uncomfortable.

Self-control is the key to making progress. You already know enough. Sometimes, gathering more information is just an excuse to stall. Take the knowledge you already have and put it to work. Learn to do things you don’t necessarily feel like doing. The alternative is to live an unfulfilling life.
