The Power Of Self-Discipline

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is self-discipline. Successful people do what unsuccessful people don’t do. Success doesn’t come from putting things off. Success comes from doing what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it. Successful people are not smarter than you, but they are willing and ready to do whatever it takes to succeed. They have decided that no matter what happens, they are not going to quit, they are not going to give up. That is the problem with the rest of us: we give up too soon. We surrender to fear before we even get to where we are going.

If you want to succeed in life, in your career, you must stay in the game of life. Tell yourself, “I don’t care what it takes, I am not going to give up until I succeed.” That is what you should be telling yourself every day. When things are not going your way, tell yourself, “I am not giving up. I will continue until I succeed.” When things are going your way, keep working, keep mastering your work, keep getting good at what you do. Do not let fear stop you from doing your best work, from living your best life.

It takes discipline to get things done. If you can discipline yourself, you can win. According to Brian Tracy, “Every time you practice self-discipline, your self-esteem goes up. You like and respect yourself even more. And the more you practice discipline in small things, the more capable you become of great discipline required for great opportunities, experiences, and challenges of life.” If you want to win, self-discipline is the way.

Do you really know how long it takes to succeed? It depends. But one thing is clear about success: It does not happen overnight. It takes time to succeed. It takes dedication to succeed. It takes focus to succeed. It takes determination to succeed. It takes discipline to success. It takes perseverance to succeed. It takes struggle to succeed.

If you want to succeed in life, do not just talk about it, do the work. And if you do the work, the work will make you.

You can’t succeed without doing your own part. Yes, you can’t control everything, but you can control a lot. You can control your mind. You can control your thoughts. You can control your choices. You can control how you manage your resources.

It takes more than just intelligence to make it in life. Even if you are not the smartest guy or girl in the room, with focus and hard work, you can make it in life. You must work. You must show up to succeed. You must cry. You are going to fail. You are going to suffer. You will make stupid mistakes, but do not let them stop you. Do not give in to fear. Do not let your past failures stop you from doing your best in the present.

We live in the present, not in the past.

Remember, you don’t plan in the past, you plan in the present. So if you want to get ahead, you must do the work, be patient with yourself, and you must do the work.
