Everyone wants to achieve success, however,most people just wish they were successful and do nothing about it. Others try doing one thing or another, but quit after a while, either because they don’t want to invest time and effort, are afraid of the competition, don’t get immediate results, or because they are afraid of failure.
Usually, only a small percentage act, persevere and does not give up.
Why some people achieve success? They achieve success because they possess self-discipline, among other things. This ability helps them to avoid wasting their day doing things that gets them nowhere. They are able to avoid doing things that waste their time, such as spending hours on Facebook or sitting hours in front of the television.
You need self-discipline to achieve success
Self-discipline equals perseverance, one of the most important qualities you need for achieving success.
Speaking of success, I don’t mean just financial success or status, but also success in many other areas besides career and job. Success can manifest in studies, in learning a foreign language, learning a new skill, losing weight, managing your time more efficiently, or changing some of your habits.
There are people who are appalled by the word self discipline. They associate it with self-denial, limitation, pain, scarcity and lack. This is a completely wrong assumption!
You use self discipline not to deny yourself and inflict pain on yourself, but for manifesting inner strength, for avoiding the distractions around you that take away your attention from your goal, and for sticking to what you want to do until you do it.
Look at the people around you, who succeed in carrying out their decisions, doing efficiently their chores and tasks, and achieving their plans and goals. They all possess perseverance, and perseverance is part of self-discipline.
