Self-discipline is a characteristic of self-love. When one is able to discipline the mind in a way that promotes positive growth in all areas of life–career, health, relationships, etc, one is able to gain clarity and focus on their dreams and make them come true as a result!
Currently, I am in the process of learning self-discipline. My focus, right now, is food. I wish to get rid of my addiction to sugar and become more discipline in my food choices, while also learn new healthy ways to deal with my emotions outside of binge eating and sweets. Although I am petite in stature and 29 years old, the health risks are too grave for me to continue on this path. Also, I believe my food choices affect my overall well being and prevent me from getting my Janet Jackson abs (lol). With all of this in mind, I am planning on doing a 7-day vegan challenge so I can learn discipline with not only my eating habits but also with my emotions and mind. If I can achieve this challenge, I can achieve a healthy lifestyle, a wonderful career and a successful business. The same rules would apply, just a different focus. And who knows? I may become a vegan longer than expected. You never know until you try right?
So for today’s ‘listen’ post, I feel it is only appropriate to feature an audio book titled “No Excuses! The Power of Self-Discipline.” Author Brian Tracy explains in clear and concise words on how to become more self-discipline and the power that comes with it from his own personal story with general principles. This may be the best 30 minutes spent today so take a listen and be motivated!
By the way, if you wish to join me on my 7-day vegan challenge. Please let me know! I will be doing the challenge the week of May 5th. If I gather quite a few of you, I may start a Facebook community for us to chat, encourage and talk about our 7-day journey together!
What area in your life are you trying to be more discipline? Let me know in the comment section! I would love to get your personal stories as well and I wish you all the best with your journey to becoming a better and more disciplined individual!
