Build Self Discipline and Achieve your Goals

It's true that we can not feel motivated all the time. Motivation is temporary, Discipline is permanent. You see it's very easy to put in the work for our goals when we are 100% motivated, Everybody can do that. No Big deal in that! But It's a big deal when you are so inclined to your goals that how you feel has no effect on the work you are about to put in. Discipline is all about creating a routine that is inclined to our goals in which we cut off the things which are unproductive and don't help us to make any progress.

 Myth: "Discipline kills freedom" 

"Most of us have a very wrong perception of discipline. If cutting your social life, Taking no time out for yourself, Sitting at one place and working for hours and hours, and living a life of a monk is the definition of discipline for you then YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY WRONG! Many of us think that being disciplined means to give up all fun and just work, work, and work
Hell no, Discipline means that organize your daily task in such a way that you get your work done and you also enjoy the process of the journey because there is no fun in achieving your goals if you are not enjoying your journey. In a nutshell FUN IN MODERATION. You, yourself know how much that movie you need to watch, how much you need that slice of pizza, how much time you need to spend with your friends. 

Self Discipline Definition 

Self Discipline is the daily decision of getting shit done day in day out, ignoring the distraction, leaving the short term pleasures aside, and focusing on long term goals. It does not mean losing all your friends or become a workaholic. It simply means being persistent, getting things done day by day, months by months, and year by year keeping the laziness or mood and how you feel on a particular day aside till you reach your goal. 

Why Self discipline is important? 

Self-discipline for students is very necessary
Discipline is the only person who will hold your hand and will take you to success or your goal. It is a way and it is the answer to the question of how to achieve your goal. You see to achieve anything in life requires a good amount of work, Which is to be performed daily day in day out, month in month out. So to maintain that consistency and persistence we need to incur quality discipline in our life. You are having a goal are you willing to sacrifice your favorite tv show? if it is consuming your valuable time. But if watching that tv show doesn't affect your daily productivity then it's perfectly fine. You got to be willing to do the things that are aligned to your goals and you have to give up making time for the things that do not bring you closer to your goals.
