How Hard Work Can Teach Discipline

Hard work is required to follow a discipline and discipline is a stepping stone to success.

Everyone wants to achieve success in their life, they want to be next big-shot in the market but what most people fail to understand it being successful requires a lot of sweat and dedication.

Success comes with its price, it requires years of constant dedication and you got to prepare yourself for a lot of hard work to stay disciplined. You can’t always stay motivated towards your goal; you need to develop the sheer discipline to stay focused on the goal and reach your destination.

Discipline is a bridge between goal and accomplishment.

In simple terms, discipline is nothing but a habit. Problem is, it’s always easier to have habits of wrong things and it’s quite difficult to develop a good habit. Let’s take an example of cigarette smoking, all the smokers are aware of the burning sensation then got when they tried smoking for the first time, it was probably the worst feeling ever, but after some practice, you start enjoying it and later it becomes your addiction.  Discipline works similarly, it always seems very tough in the beginning but later it becomes your habit.

There are few hacks which can help you train your mind to develop self-discipline. Let’s discuss the tips to develop it.

Start With The Easiest Things

Discipline is a habit that needs to be converted into addiction, so if you are in pursuit of achieving discipline in your life then it’s important to start with easily accomplishable goals first.

Setting Up Your Priorities

Knowing your priorities is an important step to develop self-discipline, no matter how hard you work today but if it’s not in your top priority then you are never going to develop a long-term discipline.

Setup your priorities and decide what are the things that you are willing to die for in order to achieve them.

Discipline Is Concentrating On Micro Tasks.

Looking at bigger goal on daily basis is going to break you down, instead of looking for the bigger goal start concentrating on the micro-tasks. Divide the goals into 3 different stages: short-term goals, medium-term goals, and long-term goals.

Short term goals: short-term goal in your micro goal that you need to accomplish on daily basis.

Medium term goals: the medium-term goal is the goal that you will achieve after working on your daily short-term goal with all your consistency and discipline.

Long-term goals: it’s a target that you should be able to achieve if you can combine hard work with discipline. You will be required to work hard to accomplish your daily micro goals with the discipline to achieve your long-term goals.

Challenge your tolerance

When does the most people give-up? When things go beyond their tolerance level.

You need to start working to improve your tolerance, a road to success is not going to be easy on you and to taste the success you need to increase your tolerance level.

There is no shortcut to success, you need to be consistent with your hard work and become tolerant of the constant pain that you will be suffering from to achieve your goal.

 

Work or Home? You have to know the difference

So many of us have to work a whole lot of hours per week and let’s face it, we are grateful to have a job in this day and age! It’s great for a person to have a job. We feel like we belong and look forward to a future where that job becomes better and we evolve into someone that we look up to, whether that is the head of a department or self-employed to the job of our dreams.

Something many of us forget nevertheless is the fact that we should have a difference between our personal life and our work life. It is difficult for some people to escape their work life or live their real life out of work. Especially now, with technology in the game, workers can get involved with their jobs either in or out of the workplace, either that’s statistics or emails.

Here are some tips to better differentiate your 2 lives without merging them ending up in a tangled mess:

Disconnect

One of the main things that can easily keep your work life connected with your personal life is the ways that you can interact with your work through technology, especially your phone. If you are stressed about some statistics or looking constantly for emails as far as work is concerned, then they can probably wait until the next day when you get to work. It’s a good thing caring about your job, but that cannot be the case all day long. Once you go home you should be able to take some time to unwind and relax if your life allows you to do so. If you have a family and kids then devote some more time with them instead of your phone.

Make time

It’s no science fiction that schedules become denser and denser as time goes by.  If the schedule is what keeps you going all the time then take advantage of it. As soon as you are done with work then try to schedule some time for yourself. It’s weird when you think about it but just keep in mind that that is what many of us need to try to understand that unwinding time is important for us and that may also be the way that we can implement unwinding time in our… schedule.

Exercise

A long day at work can be tiring and sometimes all you want to do is go home and sit on your couch or bed. But let’s face it. There are plenty of things that can keep you away from doing those relaxing things. There are a million of tiny things that can pop up unsuspectedly. On the other hand, when you create some time for exercise then you have a very good chance that you complete your exercise without any small distractions. In addition to peace, you will also energize after an exercise session. As weird as that may seem it is true. Plus you can get the body you always dreamed of.

Life is there, you just have to conquer it

Many people have a dream and they want to conquer that dream throughout their whole lives. The truth is that a dream can be achieved within someone’s life and be enjoyed for the rest of it! They say life is short, but you can pack so many things within that short period of time.

The first thing every single one of us has to realize is that it is in our hands to achieve what we want. Having to wait for things to happen for themselves is not something that we should keep as a personal policy. One has to work for the things they enjoy.

Also, many of us, look at other people that seemingly have everything, especially when it comes to celebrities. Remember, not everything is as it seems. We have all scrolled through celebrity Instagram accounts looking at what they have and what they are doing, feeling a little bit jealous. But we should never forget that what we are seeing now may be the result of a million struggles and actions! No one is born with their dreams already realized, no matter the social status, or the amount of money in the bank.

There are different kinds of success for everyone. One person is different from the other though. Since the time we were kids and we were asked what we wanted to be when we grow up, every one of us chose something different and as we grew up, things got even more diverse. The only thing that stayed the same is that we are all striving for something better in our lives. And the first action towards the achievement of the goals we want is to start doing, instead of just thinking and talking about it.
