How to Build Self-Discipline

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Why do we need self discipline? We often want to improve but we fail because we don’t feel like it

Lean in to resistance it is interacting with your thoughts not your feelings.

There are 6 ways to add self-discipline

Focus on Internal Identity

Don’t worry about the external effect but look at your internal identity. Think of talking about yourself as who you want to be. Describe yourself as an athlete, an ex-smoker, or something along those lines

Create Reminders

Reminds yourself why you want to make those changes. This will help you to keep your goal in the front of your mind and why you are busting your butt. This will help to keep you focused and disciplined.

Embrace the Suck

I have mentioned this many times and our speaker Thomas Frank backs up the whys yet again. Discomfort is not fun but the results are so worth it. So you may want to follow his lead and take a cold shower.

Target the fundamentals

These are the basics of life. Sleep, food and exercise. You are a collection of biological systems and they work together.

Practice Zazen

In other words, this is meditation. Why? Well, Thomas explains that meditation helps increase your levels of self-discipline.

Build some habits

If you want to build better self-discipline building new habits often requires you to use self-discipline.

I like being able to help people find their "why" and achieve the personal freedom they desire. Besides writing for Relaxed Male I also am a life coach. By helping men find the leader that is found in each and every one of us. I do this by encouraging men to get outdoors and find the balance they are missing. Realize that they need to be in contact with the outside as often as they can. It is not only good for them but for their families and relationships.
