Self-Discipline: Its Benefits and Importance
By Remez Sasson
One of the most important and useful skills everyone should possess is self discipline. It is a skill required in every area of life, and though most people acknowledge its importance, very few do something to strengthen it.
Contrary to common belief, self-discipline is not about harshness, limitations or a restrictive lifestyle. You can enjoy life, and at the same time have this skill well-developed.
Self discipline gives you the power to stick to your decisions and follow them through, without changing your mind, and is therefore, one of the important requirements for achieving goals.
The possession of self discipline enables you to choose, and then persevere with your actions, thoughts and behavior, in order to accomplish a goal. It manifests as the inner strength to overcome addictions, procrastination and laziness, and to follow through with whatever you do.
