Do you know what it takes to be successful? Self-discipline!
Certainly, it is something that all successful individuals have in common.
It is not only about waking up early in the morning each day to get your morning jog or morning coffee. It is much more than that.
Along with working out daily to stay healthy and fit, it’s about having a healthy mindset so that people around you will be comfortable. The reason is, people want to feel safe and warm around you and your vibes.
Think about it. Would you like to hang out with a person who loses their temper easily and cracks mean jokes or a person who loves to smile and make everyone feel worthy and comfortable?
Self-discipline is a character trait very few people possess. It is the root of all great qualities a person acquires. Self-disciplined people are considered to be passionate about their goals, and most importantly, about themselves. They take it as a responsibility to take care of themselves, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
We often find ourselves asking questions about people like, how did they become so successful or how were they able to do that. Well, the answer is simple, they applied discipline in their lives daily. From eating healthy to leaving one’s comfort zones and making uncomfortable decisions for the benefit of themselves in the long run.
Similarly, successful people do not let their ego or emotions control them. They do feel the same emotions as everyone else, they get anxiety at some point in their lives, but they don’t let it make decisions for them. They go outside of their comfort zones with a mindset of learning something new and evolving with each day and each challenge.
The answer to how were they able to do that is, they control their emotions and impulse and get things done. The ones they know are important and are needed to be done. They take responsibility for tasks that they know no one else will perform.
Also, who would like to stay stuck with miserable thoughts rather than keep moving forward in life?
Likewise, successful people accomplish their plans even after all the pain and hardship they had to grow through. With a mindset of growth and learning, they win and succeed after every trial.

To be successful, you will need to make your own choices – even uncomfortable ones, and sacrifices – even heartbreaking ones.

Being a different individual, being bullied at school, or having different viewpoints should never let you put your dreams on hold. All you need to do is to walk small stepping stones in the right direction with discipline.
Learn to be self-disciplined. And for me, it starts from taking very good care of yourself in all ways, that is physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It is about learning to prioritize important and productive tasks and then working in that direction, even if it means working at a snails speed.
Know that this will not be developed overnight. You will need to give yourself time and most importantly, compassion and kindness. Don’t be harsh on yourself.
