Self-Discipline is quite possibly the most important character trait to develop if you want to take full control over your life. Based on almost everything I’ve read and shared on MoveMe Quotes since 2010, self-discipline has been brought up time and time again as one of the fundamental secrets to success and the winning character trait that distinguishes those who unleash their personal best from those who remain leashed by their personal moods, appetites, and feelings.
Are you going to remain leashed by your moods, appetites, and feelings? …Or are you going to cut yourself free? When you’re in a bad mood do you usually A) Skip your workout or B) Go to the gym anyway because you know you should. When you come home from a long day at work and are really hungry—do you A) Reward yourself with some sweets for making it through the day or B) Cook / Prepare yourself a healthy meal because you know that you should? When you wake up and feel groggy and tired but know you have stuff that needs to get done—do you A) Make moves and get it done anyway because you know that you need to or B) Sleep in and deal with the consequences of not getting your tasks done later?
The following rituals for radiant living are from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma. These rituals provide you with a checklist of life dimensions that can (and should) be practiced daily, to help you lead your best and most fulfilled life. Take note though, the rituals are vague and don’t have specific actions that should be taken. Applying them to your life will require some personal contemplation and initiation. Good luck and may this checklist lead you to a more beautiful and full life!

Solitude and quiet connects you to your creative source and releases the limitless intelligence of the Universe.

“Men who have lived significant lives are men who never waited: not for money, security, ease, or women. Feel what you want to give most as a gift, to your woman and to the world, and do what you can to give it today. Every moment waited is a moment wasted, and each wasted moment degrades your clarity of purpose.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
