Do you understand the connection between what you think and the success you experience, or do not experience, in your job or career?
If you could learn to discipline your thoughts toward an attitude of success, do you believe it is possible you could in turn become successful?
There is a well-known phrase that talks about the importance of working smarter and while there are many interpretations of what it can mean, overall it is meant to emphasize the benefits of being focused, disciplined, and working hard. Hard work is the backbone of any career, but over time, and when routine work habits are established and set in, the effort that a person exerts may become conditionally based. It could be due to a person's perception of a "bad" boss, poor working conditions, not receiving a pay increase or recognition for their effort, and the list continues. While there may certainly be merit to these feelings, it serves no real purpose to make working hard a conditional characteristic of your job performance.
Self-discipline is an innate habit which strengthens our progress and helps us to build skills from small outer rewards. Rewarding improvements in self-discipline is achieved when you have willpower to continue building self-discipline and the ability to continue rewarding yourself. For example, when you do something positive for you, take time to give yourself a reward.
What you are going to learn:
- The value of self-discipline
- Reasons why you haven't achieved your goals
- Steps to cultivate self-discipline as a success mindset
- Reasons why procrastination is your enemy
- Steps to having achievable objectives
If you want to be good at any career it takes self-discipline to establish good work habits, to push yourself to continually learn, to get outside your comfort zone and to not be distracted from your goal. Almost anything that you can do to better yourself or to improve your life requires some self-discipline. It may be old-fashioned, it may be tough but I believe that someone who has self-discipline is a long way down the road to success because they can achieve anything!
