Quick – What are your first three associations with the word, discipline?
Mine used to be boring, rigid, and painful.
What I’ve come to realize is that I associate these with being forced to do things that are not important to me by other people (teachers / parents).
What I now realize from personal experience and coaching others is that it is actually fun and exciting to be disciplined toward the achievement of one’s goals.
When you are disciplined at something, you are bound to improve. As you improve, you graduate on to new and exciting opportunities and challenges that you’ve never experienced before. Plus, you experience the inner calm of knowing you’re living up to your potential.
However, when you’re not disciplined, you’re more than likely to repeat the same challenge over and over and have lower self-esteem because you feel stagnant and that your decisions don’t have power.
