One of the most important qualities of success is self-discipline. Self-discipline is having the ability within yourself, based on your strength of character and willpower, to do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.
Character is your principles and values – the core of who you are. It’s something a person can’t compromise – nothing is more important. It is not what you learn but whether or not you can dedicate and discipline yourself to pay the price over and over, until you finally reach your goal. Character and self-discipline when united will take you places you never thought possible – add willpower and a new world emerges.
You need self-discipline to set your goals in the first place. You need self-discipline to make plans for their accomplishment. You need self-discipline to continually revise and upgrade your plans with information. You need self-discipline to plan each day, set priorities on the use of your time, and concentrate on the most important task that you should be doing at any time.
You need self-discipline to invest in yourself every day, to develop personally and professionally, to learn what you need to learn so that you can achieve the goals that are possible for you. You need self-discipline to keep your thoughts on your goals and dreams and keep them off your doubts and fears. You need self-discipline to respond positively and constructively in the face of set-backs and problems rather than becoming angry or depressed.
The greatest display of self-discipline is persisting when the going gets tough.
