A common question: “how do I build discipline?”
Let’s say you want to be more focused with your exercise routine.
Or you need to be more diligent with your blogging and YouTube uploads.
Let’s get the things that DON’T work out of way right now.
❌ Forcing yourself to be disciplined. You’ve probably already tried and failed at this one.
❌ Following the program of someone who’s already mastered the discipline — the person who makes it seem as if discipline is just so EASY.
❌ Depriving yourself of something that you actually enjoy so you can make room for the new discipline.
This is one that most people don’t even fail at, because they can’t even bring themselves to begin.
Here’s what does work for discipline: going above the challenge of “being more disciplined” and identifying what actually moves you: your reasons for wanting it.Here’s what does work for discipline: going above the challenge of “being more disciplined” and identifying what actually moves you: your reasons for wanting it.

What disciplines someone to show up to work every day when they’re not so thrilled about the work?
What disciplines a bride-to-be to hit the gym 6 days a week for 4 months leading up to wedding day?
What drives the discipline of the famously-consistent performer who refuses to miss a day?
It’s not the activity itself.
There’s a bigger reason behind every consistency. Sometimes the person behind the discipline consciously knows what that reason is. Often they don’t.
Whatever it is you want to be more disciplined at, stop trying to force yourself to do it. You know how that fight will end.
Instead, ask yourself why you want to do it. And why that matters. Keep asking until you come upon a reason that actually matters to you, not just one that sounds good.
You’ll know you’ve hit on it when you don’t have to force your discipline anymore and it just happens.
Disclaimer: you may not find one quickly or easily. Which makes sense— if you had a good enough reason, you wouldn’t be struggling with discipline in the first place.
Also a warning: if you wait for circumstances to force discipline on you, it will either 1) be too late for you to capitalize on it once it happens, or 2) never happen at all.Also a warning: if you wait for circumstances to force discipline on you, it will either 1) be too late for you to capitalize on it once it happens, or 2) never happen at all.
