9 Tips to Strengthen your self discipline

1 • Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses

Self awareness is the precursor to discipline. If you don't like tedious paperwork, hard conversations, or studying for your exam, do them first when you have the most willpower. Discipline becomes more difficult as the day goes on.

2 • Write Clear Goals

Have clear goals so you know where to focus your efforts. Discipline is the bridge between having goals and achieving them.

3 • Build Strong Habits

Discipline starts with willpower and ends with habits. Align your habits with your goals and it's only a matter of time until you achieve them. Keep reading to learn the secret to developing new healthy habits.

4 • Make Discipline Easy

Change your environment to make discipline easy.

- Remove excess junk foods from the house

- Put out your workout clothes the night before

- Replace your video game controller with a book.

Make doing hard things easy and you'll follow


5 • Spend Time With Disciplined People

You are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Hang around disciplined people, their energy and habits will be infectious.

6. Don't Wait for it to Feel Right

Do what you need to do even when you don't feel like it. Once you start, motivation will come.

7 • You'll Feel Good After

Discipline rewires your brain's reward circuit. Cookies make you feel good as you eat them. Going to the gym makes you feel great afterward. Prime your brain to delay gratification and discipline becomes a habit.

8 • Start Over When You Fail

You become what you practice. It's okay to miss a day, but never two in a row. Practice getting back on track when you fall off.

9 • It Gets Easier

Discipline is like a muscle, it gets stronger the more you work it. Like a ball rolling down a hill, it gets easier once you gain momentum.
