Developing Self-Discipline: The Key to Getting to Where You Want to Go & Grow

In this post, we’re talking about challenging yourself to do the hard things first in the new year. It’s common for people to take the easiest way, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be obstacles along the way.

discuss the coronavirus pandemic and how it impacts you.



Are you the best at what you do?

Everyone wants success, but very few achieve the success they dream about.

This personal challenge e-book describes the personal evolution necessary to become a super-star.

The Easy Way vs. The Hard Way

There’s a great quote, “If it’s easy to do, it’s easy not to do.” Nothing has ever been more true. The truth of the matter is that you simply can’t take the easy way all the time. Things come up. There are obstacles. 

And in that lies the reality that you should do the hard things because it’s even harder not to do them. And that’s because those things will tend to weigh on you if you don’t do them. Whether it’s going to the gym or a big business move, it’ll bother you every day.

So take the hard way and do the hard stuff. Give yourself the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing what’s difficult to better yourself, your family, and your business.

The Importance of Self-Discipline

January is the time to reinforce your self-discipline. If you don’t have that present, you won’t go far this year. Everything is about discipline!

At the end of the day, you need to be able to do things for yourself first and your family second. If you don’t have the discipline needed, you might not have it in you to be successful.

There has to be a “why” and motivation between the discipline. Discipline comes from motivation or intention first.

If you don’t intend to do something, it won’t get done. Self-discipline, though, is what will get you to the next level.

Ask yourself these questions about your motivation:

  • What is your motivation for wanting this thing?
  • What’s your purpose behind what you want to incorporate into your life or business life?
  • What’s the discipline you need to create in order to achieve the goals you’re after?

It’s also important to use visualization in your journey towards achieving your goals. Imagine the outcomes you are seeking. Visualize that you have achieved them.

You have to see yourself at the other end of the tunnel, walking into the sunlight in order to get to where you’re going.

Write down what you’re willing to do. Write down the sacrifices you’re willing to make and where you’re willing to go and grow. Self-discipline leads to where you want to go and grow. It’s as simple as that!

Self Discipline is the Way to Get Ahead: The Bottom Line

You are in charge of deciding what road you’re on and then taking it. Most people will take the easy way, but you have the power to choose the disciplined way. While it may be harder, it will give you much better results than taking the easy way out.
