16 Proven Methods For Gaining Self Discipline


Brainy Dose Presents: 16 Proven Methods For Gaining Self Discipline Self discipline is the most vital component
for attaining any worthy goal. It’s that drive that makes you move forward
to continue – especially when you have times that you don’t feel like it. Whether you’re trying to improve your skills,
do better at work, or trying to get in shape – without self discipline, you simply won’t
have the momentum to make the progress you want. Fortunately, there are things you can do to
learn self-discipline and gain the willpower to achieve your goals and live a happier life. If you’re looking to take control of your
habits and choices, here are some powerful things you can do to master self-discipline! Number 1 – Understand Yourself First, to build self discipline you need to
understand in what areas of your life you are not being disciplined. Where would you like to be more disciplined? What are the areas that you’re struggling
with the most? What are some important things in your life
that you keep putting off – but yet know that if you were to do them, they would make a
huge impact? Write these things down, and also write down
why you are currently not doing them. Next to each, write down why you want to do
them. Re-frame your situation into a positive – and
look at the benefits of actually doing something about it. Number 2 – Focus On The Long-Term What are your long-term goals? What are you trying to achieve in life? Think about the long-term benefits of taking
action now. For example, you may find it hard to get off
the couch and go to the gym, or go for a run. In this case, think about how the actions
you take today will affect your health and your overall well-being. Focusing on your long-term goals will help
you understand the importance of why you need to do something now. Number 3 – Set Realistic And Achievable Goals People often make the mistake of setting a
goal that is next to impossible to achieve – hoping they will have the self-discipline
to see it through. But, it doesn’t work that way. You need to learn to set realistic goals and
set milestones for your long term goals. This will not only help you improve your self
discipline, but it will also allow you to easily monitor your progress and it will also
boost your motivation for further goals. If you need help with this, check out our
video about setting goals – you can find the link in the description box below. Number 4 – Don’t Wait For It To “Feel
Right” If you want to develop self-discipline, you
have to change up your usual routine. At first, this can be extremely uncomfortable
and awkward, and your brain will resist the change in favor of what it has already been
programmed to do. You need to acknowledge that it will take
a while for the new routine to feel right – but, you need to keep moving forward if
you want to build up your self-discipline. Number 5 – Remove Temptations Like the saying goes, “out of sight, out
of mind.” It turns out, this little phrase offers some
powerful advice. By simply removing your biggest temptations
from your environment, you will greatly improve your self-discipline. For example: • If you want to eat healthier, toss the
junk food in the trash. • If you want to improve your productivity
at work, turn off social media notifications and silence your phone. You get the point… The fewer distractions you have, the more
focused you will be on accomplishing your goals. Set yourself up for success by ditching bad
influences. Number 6 – Create New Habits By Keeping It
Simple Acquiring self-discipline and working to instill
a new habit can feel daunting at first – especially if you focus on the entire task at hand. To avoid feeling intimidated, keep it simple. Break your goal down into small, doable steps. Instead of trying to change everything at
once, focus on doing one thing consistently, and master self-discipline with that goal
in mind. For example: • If you’re trying to achieve better sleeping
habits, start by going to bed 15 minutes earlier each night. • If you want to eat healthier, start by
prepping a lunch bag the night before. Take baby steps. Eventually, when you’re ready, you can add
more goals to your list. Number 7 – Practice Self-Denial Learn to say no to some of your feelings,
impulses and urges. Train yourself to do what you know to be right
– even if you don’t feel like doing it. For example: • Skip dessert some evenings. • Limit your screen time. • Resist the urge to yell at someone who
has irritated you. Stop and think before you act – and think
about consequences. When you practice self-restraint, it helps
you develop the habit of keeping things under control. Number 8 – Schedule Your Time Scheduling your time is a great way to develop
self-discipline. For example, let’s say you’ve been wanting
to write a book, but you’re finding it hard to get started. If you schedule 30 minutes of writing time
each day for the next 7 days – by the end of the week, you will have spent 3 and a half
hours writing your book! The key is to stick to the time you have scheduled. Obviously allow for some flexibility – however,
if you can’t work the 30 minute scheduled time frame, make sure you do it at an earlier
or later time. If it can’t be done that day, make sure
you add an extra 30 minutes to the following day – otherwise, you will find yourself slacking. Number 9 – Make A Daily Checklist To help you exercise self discipline, it’s
helpful to create a daily to-do-list. Take a few minutes, and on a piece of paper
write down the tasks that you want to accomplish for the day. Prioritize the list, and start working on
the most important one. When you have a clear idea of what you want
to achieve for the day, the chances of you accomplishing those tasks will be much higher. By sticking to your to-do-list, you’ll not
only improve your self discipline, but you’ll eliminate excuses and never miss a thing in
your daily routine! Number 10 – Be Your Own Coach Positive self-talk can be extremely beneficial. When you find yourself being tested, talk
to yourself, encourage yourself and reassure yourself. For example, if you’re trying to shed a
few pounds, and there’s cake at the office – you can remind yourself how close you are
to your target weight, and eating that cake would only set you back. Self-talk has the ability to remind you of
your goals, call up courage, reinforce your commitment and keep you conscious of what
you’re trying to achieve. Number 11 – Engage In Sports Playing sports is an excellent way to improve
self-discipline. It trains you to set goals, focus your mental
and emotional energies, become physically fit, and to get along well with others. Participating in sports, provides a situation
where you learn to work hard and strive to do your best – which in turn, teaches you
to integrate the same thought process and discipline into your everyday life. Number 12 – Track Your Progress Tracking your progress is an effective way
to remain focused, motivated, and disciplined. It enables you to see how you’re progressing,
and where you can improve. In a journal, keep track of the things that
are working and the things that are not. Check your journal entries periodically, and
make adjustments that benefit your progress. Number 13 – Look For Inspiration When facing adversity, inspiration becomes
paramount in keeping self-discipline alive. Gather inspiration from people, books, quotes,
movies, and current events that support and validate your progress. Try to find someone who has successfully achieved
a goal that you want to achieve. You will probably learn a lot of things from
this person – and it will help you along your journey. Look into what specific behaviors empowered
them, and what challenges they faced – and how they overcame them. Learn about other people’s success stories,
and you’ll be more likely to follow your own goals with courage and determination. Number 14 – Reward Yourself Give yourself something to be excited about,
by planning a reward for accomplishing a goal. Just like when you were a little kid and got
a treat for good behavior, having something to look forward to, gives you the motivation
to succeed. Anticipation is powerful! It gives you something to obsess over and
focus on, so you don’t just get stuck thinking about what you’re trying to change. And once you achieve your goal, find a new
goal and a new reward to keep yourself moving forward. Number 15 – Don’t Beat Yourself Up When
You Fail Even with the best intentions and well-laid
plans, we sometimes fall short. It happens. You will have ups and downs, great successes
and dismal failures. The key is to keep moving forward. If you stumble, acknowledge what caused it
and move on. Don’t let yourself get wrapped up in guilt,
anger or frustration, because these emotions will only drag you further down and impede
future progress. Learn from your mistakes and forgive yourself. Then get your head back in the game, and refocus
on your goals. Number 16 – Find A Partner With Similar Goals To gain self-discipline, it’s always good
to surround yourself with an encouraging environment. Having a partner with similar goals can be
beneficial – as you can be accountable to each other. You can motivate one another, and provide
encouragement when one of you is struggling. Developing self-discipline is one of the key
elements to creating a better life – and with regular practice, you can greatly improve
your self control. Additionally, gaining self-discipline in just
one area of your life can lead to increased willpower in other areas of your life as well. Want do you think? In what areas are you most self-disciplined? And what areas do you feel like you need to

  8. This is like being a project manager and the project is your life.

    Keeping track of what works and what doesn't, scheduling tasks little by little. The short-term goals and long-term. Embracing changes because they're really everywhere. Learn new things because what you are good at, may no longer be in need very soon. Early sleeping and early getting up. Choosing what you put on your body. In the end, you're not just happy, you're simply self-sufficient and confident, which this world really needs more of.

    Currently staying away from impulses that benefit temporary escape and accepting what's in front of me as what it is.

  9. You know I already did most of these before I even watch this video and right before I turn eighteen remind you! It was a few months before I turn it (Which right now is a few weeks after I did) and i was like I need to get off my ass and do something, and I did, I have lost weight (not through normal exercising or diets as I don't have the money but through just changing how much I move and how much I eat), started learning how to draw (Which I am still learning and this is one of my lesser dreams), and fully writing my first draft to my first novel! I didn't even know that what I did was self discipline and thought I needed it and then you describe it and I was like wow I already achieved this! The only thing I haven't start doing is Programming but I will get to this once I get my computer back! And this is all before I was an adult think about how if I continue on this path How far I could go… But I can't get to cocky! I need to keep being stable and continue forward! But this video has actually up my self esteem quite a bit thinking about How I did this without even knowing what it was and it was a full 180 me thinking my entire childhood well I still have until I was eighteen but now I think it I need to get done what I can right now πŸ™‚

  10. Spending time with your Heavenly Father is the best inspiration by far……………………because …….."ALL Things are Possible with GOD!!!"

  11. make new videos by your face man ,,you tube said written and animation content has no place on YouTube .. show real character in front of cam
