Self-Discipline For Challenging Times
To be self-disciplined, you need to be able to inspire and motivate yourself to meet the goals that you set for yourself. You don’t need anyone’s outside help to get done what needs to get done. You do what you said you would - whether that was said to yourself or someone else, and even if you don’t feel like it.
Eat Healthily - There are so many things out there to eat that aren’t good, you know all the proceeded/packaged stuff that fills our stomachs but it is not food, it is chemicals made in factories, packaged and then sold that are definitely not life-affirming for our best health. A person who chooses to eat healthily, meaning life-affirming real organic food 80 to 90 percent of the time is demonstrating excellent self-discipline by saying no today to the short-term pleasure of the processed/packaged stuff that is made to satisfy the taste buds in exchange for being healthier long term.

Daily Exercise - Some people really do love exercise and get a true "high" or addiction off it. But most of us don’t. A person who goes ahead and does their exercise anyway each day because they have goals is showing how self-disciplined they are. (We recommend The Home Workout Revolution System and we use this program in our home - http://go.earlytorise.net/SH1j)
Temptation - A self-disciplined person doesn’t allow the temptation to be a factor in their lives because they work to avoid it by creating rules for what is allowed and what isn’t. If they're tempted by donuts, they don’t buy into the story that one is OK. They simply have a rule that they don’t eat donuts. Living with rules really does make it simple to live with self-discipline.
Create Good Habits - A person with self-discipline knows that the best way to stick to any goal is to create good habits surrounding that goal. For example, a person who has the goal to get up an hour earlier to go to the gym knows that it’s going to be only willpower the first month, then after that, a habit will be created.
Self-discipline doesn’t mean that a person never has fun. The ability to let go of weakness and do what you know is right is the best example of self-discipline. It doesn’t matter if you’re at work or at home; being able to control yourself is essential to your happiness and success.
