Self-discipline is, without a doubt, one of the most important life skills everyone, and I mean everyone, should have. There are, of course, plenty of other essential life skills everyone should master such as people skills, time and  money  management  skills, survival skills, professional skills, communication skills, and more.

Read the last sentence again. Do you know what all these other skills have in common?

If you answered self-discipline, you’re  absolutely  correct!  You need to have the discipline to effectively master many different life

skills. Skills that are important for your success at work, at school, at home, or anywhere else for that matter.


Now, achieving self-discipline is not easy. Don’t trust anyone who tells you that. To achieve self-discipline you need to have the  ability to control your emotions, your body and your mind.

It’s the ability to rise beyond your weaknesses and be strong enough to resist temptations that may come your way (and youwill have plenty of those, trust me). If you think doing that is easy, then you’re probably superhuman or maybe even a robot!

We may not share the same weaknesses but as humans, we all have weaknesses. It could be something material or immaterial, it could be tangible or non-tangible, it can even be a living thing like other human beings or animals. Every time you see these objects, these weaknesses, your resolve weakens and you lose your self- control. In some cases, maybe even your self-respect.

Overcoming your weaknesses is necessary for you to be successful at disciplining yourself. Why? You simply don’t have a choice. Temptations and obstacles will litter your path to success and it’s important you avoid these at all cost! If you fail, if you give in to your weaknesses, then you’re also going to fail big time on self-discipline.

If you’ve always wanted to achieve or excel at something, such as in sports, academics, arts, music, and more, you need to have the self-discipline to go after what you want, to chase after your dreams. You don’t just sit around and wait for something to  happen. Because nothing will happen. You have to  put in  the work, most probably over a long period of time, so you can  achieve whatever it is you’re aiming for.

By the time you finish reading the last chapter in this eBook, you’ll know everything there is to know about self-discipline and how  you can use it to build your mental strength to resist temptation so you can finally reach your goals.

Chapter 1 - What Is Your “Why”?



It’s very easy to say you’re going to accomplish something, anything, in the next 12 months. You can say you’re going to be  20 pounds lighter or you’ll be living in Europe after a year or you can even say you’re going to find the love of your life soon and tie the knot in the next 12 months!

You can do a lot of things, be in a lot of places and meet loads of new people in under a year. You have an infinite number of possible goals you can choose to achieve.

Your chosen goal could be in response to a dare from your friends or maybe a personal challenge you want to take on. No matter the reason behind your sudden desire to succeed at something new, you need one very important skill to achieve that goal.

Can you guess what that skill is? It’s self-discipline, of course.

Committing to a long-term goal is the beginning of your self- discipline journey. Once you’ve done a mental handshake with yourself or signed on an imaginary dotted line confirming your commitment to a specific goal, then your self-discipline should kick into high gear.

You need to lock yourself in and buckle up so you don’t get left behind in the marathon to reach your goal. You need the stamina and the strength to surpass and overcome all obstacles in order  to meet your goal.

Choose A Feasible Goal


Before you can begin, you need to know the answer to the question, “What is your why?”

What do you hope to achieve with your goal? What’s your end game?

If you don’t know the answer to this question, you need to seriously rethink your goal.

Is it even feasible? Is it something you can possibly hope to do within the timeframe you’ve specified? If you’ve assessed your  goal properly and you’ve done the mental gymnastics to confirm it is indeed feasible for you, then congratulations. You’ve done a great job with the first step!

If you think you made a mistake setting the goal and you don’t think it’s feasible at all, you’re welcome to back out or cross it out of your list and replace it with a more realistic goal. There’s no need to push yourself into doing something that’s highly improbable or even impossible for you to achieve.

Some people may say nothing is impossible. But  I  beg  to disagree. We are not created equal. We all know for a fact that some people have more financial resources  than  others.  Some are just naturally athletic. Some will always be better looking than the people around them. Others still are just really blessed to not have to work hard for something that other people need to work their backsides off for! They are the lucky ones, the exceptions to the rule. They’ve been given a natural head start whether they like  it or not (
