The 5 Winning Habits of Smart People – 4. Self Disciplined

25/09/2014 ~ SuccessJourney Daily Post with Nicholas Akomire ©2014

Winning most times than not, does not happen by accident – it happens as a result of predefined decisions and steps taken in that direction, deciding to be self-disciplined is one of such decision.

The WordWeb dictionary defines self-discipline as “the act of denying yourself; controlling your impulses”. There should come a time in your life when you decide what you actually want to get yourself involved in and what you shouldn’t. This decision informs what you do and what you don’t, where you go and where you don’t, the type of conversations you get involved in and the ones you should stay away from, who you hang out with and who you shouldn’t etc. This keeps a check on you and help you focus your time and resources on the important things that would grow you and as well keep you away from so many unnecessary stress and trouble.

If you lead a life where everything and anything goes, you will be shocked to find out the number of people that would take you for granted. Setting boundaries and rules around you does not only help to protect your image and integrity, it gives you a form of value and that is very important.

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy ~ Robert Tew

Enjoy your day!

I honour you!
