Self-discipline is a powerful, potent, and priceless trait of successful people. It's a quality people admire and secretly wish they possessed. Your ability to develop self-discipline will contribute more to your success than any other quality, trait, or habit. Your good looks, great personality, and passion will carry you only so far. But self-discipline will take you across the finish line. Self-discipline is the ability to take action in a situation, regardless of your emotional state. When you are self-disciplined, you decide what actions to take today to get the results you desire. You do what you need to do, whether you want to do it or not.
Self-discipline helps you keep the promises and commitments you make to yourself and clients. You do what you commit to, and you see it through to the end. No excuses! Many people in sales and business often say, "I'm just not disciplined", "I was never one to see things through to the end", or "I get started, but then something happens, and I get off track". Those are the words of business owners who would rather make excuses than be disciplined and take action. Every time you make excuses, you choose to stay stuck in a never ending loop of famine and drought in your business. The moment your feet hit the floor in the morning you have a choice. Will I make excuses, or will I make money today? The choice is yours. Do you cringe at the idea of repeating an activity that you find difficult or doing a task over and over again in order to perfect it?
Developing a skill that doesn't come naturally to you can feel like a daunting task. You start the process, but inevitably, you never see it through to completion because of a lack of self-discipline. The task may have become too difficult to persevere, so you give up. When you lack self-discipline, it's easier to give up than to push through to the other side. Discipline drives your actions, attitudes, behaviors, and outcomes. When you lack discipline, don't have a clear understanding of what you want, why you want it, and how to get it, you will be met with a series of setbacks and disappointments. Your life will be filled with frustration, anxiety and failure. It doesn't have to be that way.
