I am a very disciplined person. I don’t care if anybody else is working. I don’t care what anyone else is doing. I know what I’ve got to do, and I get it done.
Of course, I wasn’t always like this. I don’t think anyone is born a naturally disciplined person.
So don’t worry if you currently lack discipline. It’s something you can develop with practice, and the more you practice, the better you’ll become at it.
Here are three things you can do to get started:
1. Realize that if you want something different in life, you’re going to have to do things differently. Then, command yourself to do what you know has to be done.
2. Begin scheduling your day—from the time you get up until the time you go to bed. If you have a schedule, you’re more apt to do more of the things you really need to do to get where you want to go.
3. Hold the image of being successful at what you want to do. Envision a complete shift. And proceed to let that vision unfold every day.
It won’t be easy at first; however, you’ll get stronger and stronger. And then you’ll be able to do what you want, instead of just what you think you can do. What about you? Will you get started today? #BobProctor
