“Self-discipline” is one of the important traits to achieve success and it needs a lot of work to be good at disciplining yourself.
Brian Tracy is a Canadian and American motivational speaker and self-development author. He gives great tips on self-discipline and successful employment.
Here are 7 disciplines that Brian Tracy advise people who want to improve self-discipline and achieve success!
Goal Setting– Every morning, take 3 to 5 minutes to write out your top goals in the present tense. By writing out 10 goals at the beginning of each day, you will program them deep into your subconscious mind and make you more alert. Throughout the day, you will see opportunities and possibilities to move more rapidly toward your goals.
Planning and Organizing– Take a few minutes, preferably the night before, to plan out every activity of the coming day. Always work from a list. Always think on paper. This is one of the most powerful and important disciplines of all for high performance.
Have Priority Setting– The essence of all time management, personal management, and life management is contained in your ability to set proper priorities in the use of your time.
Concentrate your Highest-Value Activities – Your ability to work single-mindedly on your most important task will contribute as much to your success as any other discipline you can develop.
Exercise and Proper Nutrition -Your health is more important than anything else. By disciplining yourself to exercise regularly and to eat carefully, you will promote the highest possible levels of health and fitness throughout your life.
Learning and Growth – Your mind is like a muscle. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.
Prioritize your Time for Important People in your Life– Relationships are everything. Be sure that in climbing the ladder of success, you do not find it leaning against the wrong building. Make time for your relationships every day, no matter how busy you get.
