Description : Do you know what Self Discipline is? Do you want to know how to practice it? It's not a gimmick or a fad; it's not the answer to every life problem, either. So, what is self-discipline? It's a lifestyle. It's a tool and a skill that you can learn and practice every day to achieve the life you want. None of us are born with self-discipline; you have to learn how to make it a part of your life practice. You didn't know how to tie your shoes, either, but with practice, you got better and better at it until it became second nature and didn't require conscious thought. The practice of self-discipline has an answer for everyone; it helps people work hard to get through school or get their degree; it helps people lose weight, eat healthily and have a more balanced and nutritious life. Self-discipline is a guide for you to practice how to save more money to own a home, take trips to foreign places, purchase a car, and so much more. Some of the most successful business owners, artists, singers and performers, and experts in all fields did not get there without having this important skill in their tool belt. And here's the thing, they had to learn the hard way too, just like everyone else. There really isn't a hard or an easy way when it comes to learning self-discipline. There are just attempts, practice, failure, attempts, practice, and success. You have to be okay with falling down and scraping your knees a few times on your path to having a successfully disciplined life. What does that mean? It means it's okay for you to make mistakes and start over again. The point is the effort towards reaching your goals. So many people get caught up in the perfection of self-discipline or that there is zero tolerance for failure or mistakes. Many people believe that a certain set of rules must be followed and never broken to achieve the success of this kind. This will only make it harder for you to become a life-long, self-disciplined person. You have to cut yourself a little slack, and one of the biggest reasons people stop working hard to achieve a disciplined life is that they give up with one false move or failed attempt. Burn out is a product of not forgiving yourself for the times in life that you need a break or time to play. This book will show you how important it is to allow for downtime in addition to hard work and discipline. Self-Discipline is a partnership with yourself. Learning this skill is teaching yourself how to thrive and become the person you know you already are inside. Walking the line of discipline isn't as terrifying, daunting, or challenging as you may believe. A lot of the hang-ups that people have with this process is the belief that they can't do it, or it won't stick. This book is going to show you how to let go of those beliefs and give you all of the guidance, encouragement, steps, and guidelines you need to put you on the right track to a successful life. Your enjoyment of your discipline is a lot easier than you may be thinking. It isn't like when your mom told you to clean your room, or your teacher gave you a big assignment due at the end of the week. This assignment is on you, and it is up to you to walk the line of discipline. It is your personal path to self-discovery, and you have the keys and the tickets for this joy ride. Look no more! In this book, we will learn: the power of self-discipline the mindset of discipline self-discipline habit Find the motivation Awareness Improving focus And many more! Are you curious now?
