There are three simple steps to cultivate and develop your self-discipline.
First, start small. Jumping in with ambitious and lofty goals is only setting yourself up for failure. Break it down into smaller parts, celebrate the small victories, and use them to build momentum and confidence to continue moving forward.
Second, practice self-discipline daily to build good habits. Consistency is key here.
And third, after you have mastered the smaller tasks and built your confidence, slowly ramp it up.
To make these steps easier:
Plan ahead and put yourself in situations that make it easier to achieve your goals and stick to your habits. Make your environment work with you, not against you.
Incentivize yourself with rewards and discourage undesirable behavior with consequences. I personally love dark chocolate, so I reward myself for going to the gym by having some post-workout.
Grow to love the process. Everything you do in life will have things you like and things that you don’t. Take pride in your work and let the skills and mastery that you achieve be their own reward.
