100% Committed To Your Goal
Plan and visualize your goal right down to the tiniest
details. This step alone takes a lot of self-discipline because you’re
basically going to create a roadmap for your success. And to see your goal to
fruition, you’d have to be a hundred percent committed.
To see your goal through to the end, you’d have to exercise
self-control in many situations and your discipline will see to it that you
finish your course according to plan.
Be The Biggest Obstacle To Your Success
You might not know it but you are probably the biggest
roadblock to your success. Your fears and your insecurities might be holding
you back from reaching your goals.
Do you fear success? Are you afraid of failing? If you
answered yes to either question, then you are sabotaging yourself.
If you want to achieve something and be somebody in life,
then you’re not going to allow your inner self to undermine your efforts. You
have to go after your dreams and work hard every single day.
If you want to be a concert pianist, you’re going to
practice for hours on end each and every day. You’ll have the discipline to
practice every morning, after school or work, and before you go to bed. If you
start thinking you’re never going to be good enough, then you will never be
Like You Mean It
Sometimes we say no to temptation the first or second time
it’s offered to us. But on the third or fourth attempt, your defense starts to
crumble and you slowly give in to the tempting and probably mouth-watering offer.
If you’re truly disciplined, you’ll learn to say no like
you actually mean it. Say no in such a way that the person doing the tempting
and distracting will actually understand what you mean. Because if they sense
your no is actually a maybe, they’ll persist and continue to knock on your door until you have no choice but
to give in.
