Self discipline: How to build self discipline
How do we overcome all the distractions to accomplish our goals? How do we inculcate self-discipline in us? what will it take to achieve our set goals?
How is your week going?
So some days ago I was talking to us about self discipline and to work on how to surmont distractions and temptations that prevents us from achieving our goals.
Today, we will be looking at some of those things we need to do inorder to build/implement self discipline in us.
Self control is hard and difficult to implement/inculcate in ourselves; true - it can be uncomfortable and awkward, you will have ups and downs, setbacks, failures and so on but the key is to keep moving forward and you will get to your destination gradually; consistency is the key trust me.
Here are few tips on how to build your self discipline.
- CREATE A HABIT
Not just creating a habit but good habits. In order to inculcate self discipline in us we need to create some certain new habits engage your mind, heart and might with clarity through your specific goals; question yourself about what you really want to achieve.
in a situation where someone eats a lot and gets fat and you want to create the habit of eating very little to watch your weight you have to engage your senses, the mind delivers the drive, the energy and motivation you need to restrain yourself from going beyond limits, so when you want to over eat, your subconscious mind where your habits are stored reminds you of your goal not to over eat because you have questioned yourself about what you really want.
Keyword: Engage your mind to your set goal, question yourself about what you intend to achieve with the new habit your are creating.
- FIND WHAT MOTIVATES YOU
For one to build self-discipline you have to know what motivates you or rather find a motivation; something that compels you to do a certain thing - one that when you remember it you get inspired or energy refill, something that boost your morale not to give up. That will power that drives you to do something is your motivation. It could be anything within you, around you or with you. Ask yourself, why do I want this particular habit in the first place? If you can answer then you can find your motivation.
Keyword: search within/around you the things that keep you going, the things that encourages you to forge head be it living or non living things.
I will leave you here with this two tips until my next writeup!

Hi @whiteangey, I must commend the effort you put into this post..
I woke up today with a big yawn 🥱 and went to sleep knowing too well that I was supposed to prepare and attend lectures by 8. If I had indeed had a bit of self control or self discipline, I wouldn't have missed that class.
It's hard but sometimes we're supposed to do what we're supposed to do at the right time so they'll be no consequences.
Thank you for the hints my dear, I'm looking forward to working more on myself.
I noticed this post was posted 6days ago, I hope you're doing fine my dear, we're looking forward to more posts from you..!!
Thank you so much @chincoculbert for your kind words.
Self discipline is something we must learn to do at all times for our own good
I'm happy you understood what I was trying to communicate and I hope you will start working on your sleep so as not be late for lectures or miss classes😃
You don't know the kind of joy I have now knowing that at least someone somewhere understands me
Thanks for your support and I will continue to write more on self-discipline, see you soon.
Yeah...I'll try my very possible best to be as disciplined as I can be..

Hi there lovely!
oh yes.. these are some tips that i'm sure most of us can use!!!
self-discipline is one of those things - if you can master??? you've mastered 99% of the journey! hehehehe
can I give you a tip for your writing?
You have a commercial blog here - meaning you're making money on it! woo hoooo! hehehe
So when you do that - you always have to make sure that your posts are using images that copyright-free.
i noticed that one of the images above was from google. - that's a bad source to get images from because so many times they are copyrighted.
But you can find AMAZING photos - professional and free to use commercially on places like
these are sites that have photos with cc0 licenses - meaning they are free to use for commercial purposes :)
and then - you did a BEAUTIFUL job showing the sources of your images - so just do that same technique with the cc0 license images and you're good to go!!! :)
you definitely don't want to get in trouble for using copyrighted images heheheh - but now - you won't be in danger of that anymore! :)
hope that helps - and if you have any questions - come grab me - i'm always here to help!!! (also - if you use Google to look up "sites that have cc0 images - you'll find LOTS more sites to use!!!)
