Self discipline is the reason why some are successful while others are not. When it comes to successful people, they make it a habit of doing what unsuccessful people don’t like to do. They realize self discipline is a life-long path and they don’t go for the path of least resistance, or the path that is fun or easy. They take the path that leads to where they really want to go. To become someone you have never been before, you will have to do what you have never done before. If you don’t have self discipline, you need to develop it now!
Your self discipline with help form your character and your character is activated during adversity. Persistence is self discipline in action. As my favorite self improvement coach Jim Rohn said, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
