Do you make goals, yet get discouraged when your plans don’t work? We all know that person who seemingly was born to succeed. Fitness, health, business, they achieve all their goals. You want that success, and know you can get it... but how?

Do you make goals, yet get discouraged when your plans don’t work? We all know that person who seemingly was born to succeed. Fitness, health, business, they achieve all their goals. You want that success, and know you can get it... but how? This course will help you develop self-discipline needed to reach your objectives.
Would you like to successfully lose weight instead of being one of those people who endlessly start new diets only to crash and burn and do it all over again?
Would you like to become a successful businessperson instead of a wannabe entrepreneur constantly wishing but never actually starting a business?
Would you like to become a world-class performer instead of a mediocre jack-of-all trades who can’t stick to anything for long enough to become good at it?
You can, by taking two action steps described in this lesson.
You don’t need self-discipline when things go smoothly. Few people give up dieting on the first day or stop their workout schedules in the middle of the first workout. It’s only when things get more difficult, when you no longer have the initial motivation, that you lose discipline and determination. Learn how to befriend adversity.
Few people are better examples of self-discipline and commitment than professional athletes.
When an average person looks at an elite performer – say, a world-class tennis player – they see that his or her abilities seem natural, easy. They conclude, “He was born with it. It was given to him.”
And they couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Learn why practicing a sport is an excellent way to build self-discipline.
Gym membership statistics by the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association show that 67% of people with gym memberships never use them.
It turns out that gyms make more money on people who don’t use them than the ones who do. Can you guess how disciplined the non-attenders are?
To build long-term self-discipline, starting today, establish a fitness routine and stick to it religiously. Learn how to do it from this lesson.
In this lesson we’ll discuss the five most common reasons why people quit their fitness programs and subsequently lose self-discipline.
You build willpower when you don’t feel like doing something but do it anyway. Practice this simple exercise to develop more self-discipline.
Waking up early can help you feel more energy during the day, increase your productivity, and help you build more self-discipline. It’s a perfect exercise to build mental toughness as it takes a lot of willpower to unlearn the habit of staying up late and hitting the snooze button several times before getting up.
Discomfort is a part of human nature. For thousands of years, humans lived in dire circumstances, fighting for survival every single day. It’s not in spite of the obstacles but thanks to them that we thrive today. Learn why it's essential to put yourself in uncomfortable situations.
There are certain things and habits you need in your everyday life to feel comfortable. They can include carrying your smartphone everywhere you go, checking your email ten times a day, drinking coffee first thing in the morning, or sleeping in your warm, comfortable bed. To get yourself accustomed to discomfort, temporarily give up one of your “necessities.”
It’s an old rule in the world of time management that you should do the most important things first, and only after you finish them should you allow yourself to move on to less essential activities.
However, in everyday life few people follow this sound advice. If you have a list of ten tasks to do, it’s easier to focus on the easiest ones that you’ll be able to cross off your list quickly.
Learning difficult things is another great way to improve your self-discipline. The harder the skill you want to learn the more frequently you’ll feel discouraged, exhausted, and tempted to give up. If you decide to keep going, you’ll gradually increase your resistance to unfavorable situations and become a more persistent person.
If you’re impatient, you’ll be more likely to doubt the power of the long-term process and give up too soon. If you expect quick results and don’t achieve them, you’ll be more likely to get discouraged or feel guilty you can’t live up to your unrealistic expectations.
Obsessing over what other people think about you is nothing but the inability to trust yourself. It’s easier and more comfortable to ask for validation from other people than to learn how to feel okay without their approval. It’s equally easy to do what others tell you to do instead of asking yourself what you truly want.
Meditation is one of the best ways to learn how to focus. However, many people think that sitting still with their eyes closed is boring. Fortunately, there are many more ways you can put yourself in a meditative state. Here are several alternatives worth testing.
Meditation is not only something done as a specific activity at a specific time. You can also practice as you go about your day. Each time you slow down, become mindful of what you do, and focus on the sensation a specific experience gives you, you learn how to focus and gain more control over your mind.
Deliberately putting yourself into uncomfortable situations is helpful, but don’t forget it shouldn’t become unbearable. Every exercise in this course is meant to be practiced often, but not when your body is giving you obvious signals it can’t take more.
The essence of building self-discipline and mental toughness is that you make your life harder to learn how to better handle temptations, setbacks, and failures in life. In addition to making you tougher, these exercises can help you appreciate what you have more.
When working on self-discipline, it’s easy to go from one extreme (a lack of self-discipline) to another (being too tough on yourself). Now that you’re working on your discipline, you may get tougher on yourself and criticize yourself even more often and more heavily than before.
We’ve covered the essential habits, exercises, and mindset shifts that will help you become a more self-disciplined person. However, it doesn’t mean you should start changing every aspect of your life right away. Once you make the changes and become more disciplined, for the best results pick one or two things you’d like to improve and proceed from there.
