When we hear the words discipline and self-discipline they conjure up a lot of negative images and connotations for us, don’t they? They usually invoke images of a lot of hard work and struggle. But it need not be that way.
This week is all about self-discipline ladies and how we could use it positively to be the best writer that we could be. This requires that we shift our perspective from the negative connotations of the concept to a more positive one.
I will show you during the live chat that self-discipline is not something that is hard to develop. All you have to do is to perform the same productive actions that turn into good habits over time. There is no one time development of self-discipline. In other words, there is no point where you can say that you have mastered self-discipline altogether. Instead, it the development of discipline is an incremental process that takes time. And if you become more disciplined in one area of your life, you will be able to apply the same schematic structure to others areas of your life. So, as you can see, discipline is something very positive.
Self-discipline is a trait, and it is your most important tool for success in all areas of your life. It will help you become more productive and confident, and you will be able to master many different aspects of your life. In other words, self-discipline is skill that we can all learn. And it is quite easy to achieve if we do the right actions consistently.
So, what is Self-Discipline?
Self-discipline can be a type of selective training, creating new habits of thought, action, and speech toward improving yourself and reaching goals. Self-discipline is usually task oriented and selective.
It is important for us to view self-discipline as positive effort, rather than one of denial.
Most generally, self-discipline can be defined as doing what you set out to do and what you must do to be successful. Self-discipline is also the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses; the ability to pursue what one thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it.
Before I delve into this topic in more detail in our live chat, I would like us to do some reflection on where we stand with self-discipline. So, in our assignment for this week, you will get a chance to do some self-reflection on how you feel about self-discipline.
