Self-Discipline Definitions

Self-discipline is the companion of willpower. It is synonymous with self-control, which is the ability to avoid unreasonable excess of anything, which could lead to negative consequences.

Self-discipline appears in various forms, such as inner strength, endurance, perseverance and restraint, and as the ability to carry out one's decisions and plans, in spite of inconvenience, hardships or obstacles.

One of the main characteristics of self-discipline is the ability to forgo instinctive and immediate gratification or pleasure, in favor of some greater gain or more satisfying results, even if this requires effort and time.
