The angel and the devil on your shoulder. It's a constant fight between what you know is best for you, and what you want to do in the moment.
Last night it took me a whole hour to talk myself into getting in the gym and working out - I did it. Sometimes the devil wins, most of the time it doesn't.
Do you think Ronaldo and Messi love going training every day? Do you think the best in the world love doing the small mundane tasks every day just so they become the top of their game??
NO! They do it because they believe in the process. They know doing the small things daily lead to amazing results.
Self-control and discipline are essential qualities for achieving success in life. They are the ability to control one's thoughts, emotions, and actions in order to achieve a goal or maintain a certain standard of behavior.
Self-control is the ability to resist temptation or immediate gratification in order to achieve a long-term goal. Discipline, on the other hand, is the consistent practice of self-control in order to develop good habits and maintain a certain standard of behavior.
Here are a few tips for developing self-control and discipline:
Set clear goals: Having a clear understanding of what you want to achieve will make it easier to resist temptations and stay on track.
Break down big goals into smaller steps: Setting smaller, more manageable goals will make the task of achieving them seem less daunting and make it easier to stay motivated.
Use visualization techniques: Visualizing yourself achieving your goals can help to motivate you and make it easier to resist temptations.
Develop a routine: Having a consistent routine can help to establish good habits and make it easier to resist temptations.
Practice mindfulness: Being aware of your thoughts and emotions can help you to identify when you are struggling with self-control and discipline and take appropriate action.
Get support: Surround yourself with people who will support and encourage you in your efforts to develop self-control and discipline.
Reward yourself: Set rewards for yourself when you achieve your goals or meet certain milestones.
Practice forgiveness: Be kind to yourself when you slip up or make mistakes. Remember that developing self-control and discipline is a process and it takes time.
Self-control and discipline are qualities that can be developed and strengthened over time with practice and patience. With the right mindset and a commitment to achieving your goals, you can develop the self-control and discipline you need to succeed in life.
