In the year 2012, the month of October to be specific, i decided i was going to change my lifestyle after going through a very difficult experience in my life. I decided i was going to be excellent in whatever i put my hands to do but i discovered it was difficult to be excellent when you have too much weight. i was weighing 72kgs by then and as the Bible says,”….shed off all the weight that entangles you” i decided to literally shed off the weight and i promised myself that i was going to lose 12kgs by end of the year without using any artificial means. I started waking up at 5am every morning to excercise and also reduced the amount of food i was eating. Today am 58kgs and it feels great. Many times i did not feel like waking up to workout but everytime i didnt feel like i pushed myself to do it.

Brian Tracy defines self discipline as the ability to make yourself  (this means that you have to use strength and will power to force yourself into motion) do what you should do, when you should do it whether you feel like it or not. This means that when you make a plan or when you set a goal, set a schedule and do what you have said you will do. in other words self discipline is doing what you say you will do when you say you will do it, keeping your promise to yourself and to others. if you cannot keep a promise to yourself, how do you expect to keep a promise to others? Infact your true character comes out when you really dont feel like doing what you said you will do or when you are very discouraged and frustrated and you force yourself to make the next step, now that is self discipline. everybody can do what they like doing but only self disciplined people can do what they dont like doing. The difference between those who succeed and those who dont succeed is that ability to push yourself even when circumstances dictate otherwise, the ability to push and keep the promise to yourself and to others.

with Self discipline you can achieve any level of success that you want to achieve be it in your finances, your health, your career etc.
