Self-discipline

THE KEY to ACHIEVING your GOALS and dreams!


Many people feel like self-discipline might take away their freedom and fun and they will have to be strict, productive and boring all the time.

Nothing can be further from the truth. Self-discipline creates self-love, self-trust, higher self-esteem and all those bring true liberation and fulfillment. We will still have fun and enjoy life, but we will do it from a place of conscious choices and without guilt or stress.


"Freedom is born of self-discipline. No individual, no nation, can achieve or maintain liberty without self-control. The undisciplined man is a slave to his own weaknesses."

Alan Valentine

"Self discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most".

~Abraham Lincoln

There are couple of ways to gain unshakable self-discipline and begin achieving goals:


Change short-term thinking patterns into long-term vision.

Instead of thinking of instant gratification, we build a habit of thinking of the desired outcome.

The change of mindset will create a new habit, of making the right choice (long term fulfillment) instead of the one of the short-term happiness.


Remove self-criticism.

When we beat ourselves up, or being harsh on ourselves, it’s often paralyzing. Fear of failure or judgment isn’t a motivator for most people. Imagine someone close to you judging you harshly, vs accepting, loving and encouraging, when would you be more motivated and committed for them?

We could learn how to develop self-compassion and self-love, allow mistakes, because they are part of the journey to success! Through self-acceptance, we develop self-discipline.


Develop self-trust, self-love and self-esteem.

When your self-image is of a person who can’t deliver, or can’t commit, it is going to be really hard or even impossible to find self-discipline. Think about it for a moment, how much would you like to commit to someone you can’t trust? There’s a way to gain self-trust again, and through a new and improved self-esteem, we become successful.


Putting the plan into action.

When we learn how to manage time and build strategic plans, we learn how to problem solve, how to overcome challenges, and how take one step at a time.

Being spontaneous and free is awesome, but in order to achieve goals we sometimes have to learn how to plan, write, schedule, execute, evaluate our situation, be flexible, adjustable, and follow through.
