My brother in law, Nathan, and I feel discipline is an empowering and motivating force in our lives. Whether it’s physical, spiritual or mental discipline, it doesn’t have to be a dirty word or mean we can’t have fun! So, lace up your shoes and join us for part 2, Encouragers!
4 Steps to Discipline
Write it Live it Love it Tell it (out loud to myself and to others)
Ease into your new discipline (because it WILL be uncomfortable at first).
If you experience a lot of “drag” with the new system, evaluate the reason for the issue: Is it spiritual? Is it mental? Is it physical? Is it out of fear? (I always create systems to outwork fear!)
Find out if you are “self” motivated or “others” motivated. If you are “others” motivated, be careful who you give that power to. Don’t let others define who you are or it will wear you out!
To stay motivated, you have to know your WHY. We are all valuable and unique. Think highly of yourself at all times. Be encouraged and motivated to do anything you want in this life. Set your goals, follow through with the disciplines and take the first step!
