Hi, everyone. Today we are going to be talking
about the lack of self-discipline. Do you ever feel like you just… You want to do
something, you want to go for something, but you’re just lacking the discipline in which
to do it? It’s Rachel here, and thank you for joining us on our journey of self-discovery.
This channel will allow you to increase the strength that you have for your inner and
outer connections. Let’s bring what it is that you are building strength upon inside,
and bring that to the exterior so that you can share it and use it in your own life.
Please subscribe to my channel, and don’t forget to hit the bell to be notified every
time I put out a new video. If you are lacking self-discipline, then you
are lacking self-control, which is essentially giving up when problems arise. Today I’m going
to be giving you nine tips and tricks that you can use to go from lacking self-discipline
to having self-discipline, and how we can increase that self-discipline. Step one, remove the distractions. If you
are somebody who finds it easy to say, “Oh, I know I said I was going to do this, but
I’m just not feeling it today, I’m going to play a game, I’m going to watch TV,” remove
those distractions. Maybe have someone hide the remotes on you, maybe go for a walk to
clear your head, but you want to get those distractions away from you so that you’re
not tempted to go to them, especially when you want to be working toward having discipline. Number two, identify the bad habits you have
and make a point to break them. So, when I said remove the distractions, what goes into
the second step as well is that you need to be able to identify what those distractions
are and identify what the bad habits are that you already have, so that you can make a point
to break them, so if you get close to going to that distraction, if you get close to following
that bad habit, that you don’t allow yourself to do that. Step three, increase your stress tolerance.
And what I mean by that is, it’s easy for us to get stressed out when we’re completing
a task, when we’re doing a job at work, maybe when we’re at home trying to figure something
out or doing a self-project. It’s very easy for us to have stress. It’s very important
that if you want to be a disciplined person, that you increase your stress tolerance so
that if you feel like you hit stress, you’re not giving up right away. If you’re stressed
out, you’re going to push yourself through it so that you can get to your outcome, and
so that you can finish what it is that you started. Step four is making a plan. You already know
what your bad habits are, or what many of them are. You know that you don’t have, at
this point in time, full self-control. So, make a plan so that you can increase your
self-control, which will allow you to have discipline. Part of this plan is utilizing where we recognize,
which was step one, where we’re recognizing the distractions. What are they? So you can
go in your plan and write down what the distractions are that are keeping you from being self-disciplined.
Then you can set how it is in this plan that you’re going to combat those distractions.
How are you going to get them out of your head? How are you going to move past them,
so that you don’t give up as soon as something happens that you’re not comfortable with,
but that you can continue to push through to get to the end, get that result, the good
result, and be able to have more discipline the next time things come around? When you make these plans, make sure that
you carry them out. You can write down lists of things all day long, but if you don’t carry
them out and follow through with them, then you’re not going to get anywhere farther than
you are right now. So make sure that you make the plan, but then you also carry it out. Step five is reward yourself when you make
steps toward a goal, when you complete a goal, when you know that you were able to have that
self-discipline and continue on, continue through struggles, continue through challenges,
and work to get the task done for which you were working toward. And every time that you
do this, it’s going to allow you to be more disciplined in the future, but you want to
make sure that you are celebrating even the small successes, so that you can feel in control,
and that you can know that something powerful is happening, and that’s exciting, and can
make you feel very positive and make you want to continue. Step six is being able to tolerate stepping
out of your comfort zone. When we’re comfortable with something, it’s easy for us to get into
a slump, get into a pattern of doing things a certain way. So, taking a step, even if
it’s one step to begin with, out of your comfort zone, you don’t have to do it leaps and bounds,
but if you step out of your comfort zone, it’s going to allow you to see things in another
light, perhaps, and challenge you so that you can work from having a lack of self-confidence
to having that self-confidence. Step seven is to practice, practice, practice.
Literally that. You need to be able to practice this multiple times before it becomes something
that is just a fluid thing that you do. It is easy right now, when you have a lack of
self-discipline, that is something that’s fluid. It’s easy for you to do. It’s easy
for you to have a lack of control. It’s easy for you to quit and give up. It’s the same
thing when you practice, practice, practice having that self discipline, and you get better
at it. Just keep on practicing, and it will become more second nature to you. Step eight is redefining success. So, when
you lack self-discipline, you might’ve found success within that somewhere, because you
allowed yourself to not follow through with something, and you were okay with it. So redefine
what that success is to you, so that you can strive to be successful and have a discipline
that you are able to follow. Step nine is to determine your own purpose.
So, if you’re lacking self-discipline, you don’t really have a purpose for which you’re
doing something, aside from “it’s too hard,” or you give up too early, something like that.
But if you are able to determine what your self purpose is… Or, excuse me, if you’re
able to determine what your purpose is as you’re strengthening your ability to have
more confidence in yourself and become more self-disciplined, then you’re going to be
able to carry out that self-discipline from one project to the next project to the next
project. You’ll be able to utilize it in different areas of your life, and you’re going to have
a more solid purpose, which is why you want to also determine what that self-purpose is,
so you can also keep going. If you liked this video, don’t forget to subscribe

I want to know, what are some things that you have found that you have lacked self-discipline
in, or things that you have been very self-disciplined within? And you might be able to see a pattern
within those two, because we don’t always have to have a lack of self-discipline; we
might be disciplined in some areas and not in other areas. So let me know that in the
comments. I won’t see you in the next video, but you will sure see me, and I can’t wait.

  1. Oh, the excuses run rampant when you don't want to do something 🙂 I love the phrase "discipline equals freedom" as my mantra when I don't want want to do something. Great video!
