I thought it important to write this because I am a victim of this. I have been trying to lose weight for the last year and always when I crave Maryland I have a battle in my head and I end up losing to my desires.
It has been a struggle. Trying to be better than I am and each time I last longer but I figured if I am not disciplined who the hell am I kidding. I’ll just be making goals that I will never attain.
See self discipline means taking control of your mind and your body. Its about delayed gratification. Even if you really want that new car, you have to invest first so that you can have more but most of us just go for the car.
Self discipline means tuning your mind to a particular mindset and the more you stick to it, your mind adjusts to it’s new norm.
It’s better to keep eating healthy no matter how bad you crave that burger. No matter how bad you want to give up because isn’t quiting always so attractive when things get hard.
The secret to success lies in pushing through. Taking in the pain and growing. If you were jogging start running. Push yourself harder each time. When everyone gives 100 give 110. Don’t stop because your friend stops. That’s a blinding mindset we seem to fall for. It is our excuse to quit.
You didn’t start the race to gratify them. You started it to gratify yourself. Look out for yourself. Look out for number one first. They may quit but that doesn’t mean you should be poor together. Do you want to rejoice in failure together or will you branch out break the norm and reach for the Stars.
Hell it doesn’t matter if they are your best friend. Would you rather face the pain of regret or will you branch out and face the pain of discipline reaping rewards that were once a luxury but now a necessity.
Self discipline is the bridge between what you hope for and its achievement. You know you are capable otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this looking for a push forward. So here’s the push. Gain control. Gain control of your mind. Gain control of your desires, of your life.
Take control for losing it means losing yourself. It means losing your dream, your hope. It means losing face and stumbling and the only way out is DISCIPLINE.
