3 Steps to Leading a More Disciplined Life.

3 Steps to Leading a More Disciplined Life.

Motivation can be powerful for short term spurts of high intensity productivity.  Discipline, however, is the key to long term success.

Motivation is fickle and requires constant attention.  Discipline is reliable and becomes a way in which you lead your life.

What we’re lacking in the world isn’t sources of motivation—it’s self-discipline.

Type in “motivational video” into Google and you’ll get upwards of 13,000,000 results!  And I’ll be the first to admit that most of the videos are incredibly motivational!

The problem is that motivation wanes fairly quickly and it is weak when challenged.

All it takes to throw off a persons motivation is a slight loss in sleep; a hungry tummy; an endless social media timeline; a phone call; a comfy bed…  We’ve all been there.

“Who wouldn’t want to write a best-selling book or lose weight or earn more money? Everybody wants to achieve these goals.  The real challenge is not determining if you want the result, but if you are willing to accept the sacrifices required to achieve your goal. Do you want the lifestyle that comes with your quest? Do you want the boring and ugly process that comes before the exciting and glamorous outcome?” ~ James Clear, Blog

 

“When you make it your goal to create the perfect relationship between you and your body, you are learning to have a perfect relationship with anyone you are with, including your mother, your friends, your lover, your children, your dog.  When you have the perfect relationship between you and your body, in that moment your half of any relationship outside you is completely fulfilled.  You no longer depend upon the success of a relationship from the outside.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love

 

“Don’t aim at success—the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.” ~ Viktor Frankl

 

“Success for me has little to do with money or possessions or status.  Rather, success is a simple equation: Happiness + Growth + Contribution = Success.  That’s the only kind of success I know.  Hence, I want to partake in work that makes me happy, work that encourages me to grow, work that helps me contribute beyond myself.  Ultimately, I want to create more and consume less.  Doing so requires real work.” ~ The Minimalists, Everything That Remains

 

6 Steps to Mastering the Move Forward Game.

Mastering the Move Forward Game

—— —— ——

Step 1:  Master Your Mindset

I see people become victims of their circumstances and life challenges all of the time.  When life gets tough or depressing, most will adopt a negative perspective and think to themselves about how unfair life is: how they should have been born into better circumstances with more money; or how they should have been given better opportunities; or how things should have happened differently.  

Well, the truth of the matter is that life is going to happen – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.  The one true thing that you will always have 100% control over is your response to these events.  When you adopt a positive attitude and always look for the good in any given circumstance – how could you not move forward…?  Below are some of our most popular posts on mastering your mindset!  Start by reading these:

Is Social Media Bad?

speaking-out

Social media seems to have developed a stigma, especially with certain folks, that it’s purely distractive and purely a waste of time.

…I admit that I’ve taken that stance before, but now I see that social media is not purely distractive or a waste of time, but rather is purely what you make it.

It’s a platform.

…Just like the raised surface that a person uses when they are trying to communicate an idea to an audience.

A person can stand up on a platform and say boring, irrelevant, energy draining things – or they can stand up and say exciting, interesting, action-oriented things.

It’s up to the person on the platform to choose what they want to say and it’s up to the audience to give them feedback as to whether or not they want to hear more or less of that in the future.

Give a person an audience and they will continue to say more of what captivated that audience.  Take the audience away and they will quickly seek to change their presentation.

“[Success] is not about beating the other guy.  It’s not about having more than the others.  It’s about being what you are, and being as good as possible at it, without succumbing to all the things that draw you away from it.  It’s about going where you set out to go.  About accomplishing the most that you’re capable of in what you choose.  That’s it.  No more and no less.” ~ Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy
