“Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward.” ~Napolean Hill
Your ability to develop the habit of self-discipline will contribute more to your success than any other quality of character.

Self-discipline is the ability to get yourself to take action regardless of your emotional state.
Self discipline requires getting out of your comfort zone and expanding your thoughts and your horizons. In order to produce different results, we must grow. In order to grow, you must first have the desire to learn.
If you don’t expand your mind, you cannot achieve new levels of achievement and success in your life.
Do not continue on the same path that got you the results you already have, do something different.
Self-discipline involves acting according to what you think instead of how you feel in the moment.
It involves sacrificing the pleasure and excitement of the moment for what matters most in life and delaying your gratification.
Make no mistake, self-discipline is often extremely difficult.
If you struggle with self-discipline, you will be happy to know that it can be developed.
Commitment to Self-Discipline
It is not enough to simply write out your goals and values. You must make an internal commitment to them
stop doing the things you have always done and make the decision NOW to eat right, get healthy, study what successful people do and learn from those who have already achieved what you desire.
You will be amazed at what you can accomplish and the things that you can give up to get there, like watching TV and listening to all the negativity.
Why is it that some people are extremely successful, while other more talented and gifted people remain average and mediocre?
Imagine what you could accomplish if you could discipline yourself to follow through on your best intentions no matter what.
Do you want Better health, weight loss, more money ?
Without self-discipline that intention won’t manifest itself, but with sufficient self-discipline, it WILL.
When you master the art of self-discipline, you will reach the point that when you make a conscious decision, it’s virtually guaranteed you’ll follow through on it.
Self-discipline is one of many personal development tools available to you. Self-discipline is like a muscle. The more you train it, the stronger you become. The less you train it, the weaker you become.
Monitor Yourself Internally
Self-talk can also be extremely beneficial if you have control of it. When you find yourself being tested, I suggest you talk to yourself, encourage yourself and motivate yourself. After all, positive self-talk and affirmations have the ability to remind you of your goals, call up courage, reinforce your commitment and keep you conscious of the task at hand.
Self-discipline is the one skill that’s indispensable for a successful, happy life. Don’t go another day without it—especially when Brian Tracy makes it so easy to achieve. Enjoy the following video.
