5 Ways to Develop Self-Discipline

by M. Farouk Radwan

In order to be successful in life you need to have many personality traits. One of these traits is self-discipline which is the ability to commit to your important tasks under all conditions. People who lack self-discipline usually give up along the way and never get their important tasks done and that’s why they never become successful.

In this post I will tell you how to develop self-discipline so that you can become successful in life.

How to develop self-discipline?

  1. Change your beliefs: People who never give up on important tasks aren’t the ones who always feel like doing them but they are the ones who do them even if they don’t feel like doing them. That’s why understanding this fact on its own can help you develop self-discipline. Keep on working even when you feel down, sad, bad or depressed.
  2. Commit to easy tasks: When you commit to easy tasks and do them under all conditions you will automatically be able to commit to harder ones. Once you teach your mind the concept of commitment under all circumstances, you will find yourself able to stick to all of the important tasks you do.
  3. Train your will: If you managed to teach yourself to withstand simple irritation you will be able to stand tough emotions without being affected by them. For example, learn how to control your temper during simple situations such as traffic jams and you will find yourself more in-control during tough times and bad moods.
  4. Don’t rely on friends: Many people rely on their friends to encourage them to exercise or to do other tasks and that’s one of the reasons why most of them never manage to commit to these tasks to the end. If you want to do something, then put in mind that you will do it alone. If a friend showed up to encourage you consider it a bonus but never be fully dependent on him or her.
  5. Hold on to the tasks under all conditions: Some people commit to the important tasks as long as everything is good but when life gives them a hard time they pull away and stop. Each time you stop doing a task you actually break the self-discipline you have developed, and start all over. Stick to the important tasks under all conditions and you will be able to develop self-discipline.

  • thank you so much deboarah for giving me this wonderful opportunity to post on your blog

  • Self discipline is really an important part of life. Regardless of what your goals are, it will be the deciding factor of whether you actually do it or not.

    • In this day and age, with “entitlement” being encourage (rightly so, in some cases), self-discipline remains that balancing factor to help keep things flowing smoothly.
