“Although discipline demands control and asceticism, it actually results in freedom.” Jocko Willink
The root word of discipline is “disciple” and a common misconception is that a disciple is a follower, but in reality it means student, “one who studies”. For me, it means the study of self so that you can show up mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually strong.
Only through learning to govern yourself can you find true freedom and that takes discipline. You can follow your own rules, but you may need to bend the rules on occasion.
If you want to live your dream, it’s important that you make conscious choices that are in alignment and to hold yourself to that standard. It’s going to feel uncomfortable; your mind will tell you it’s risky, it’s too good to be true and you’ll want to give up, yet each time you break old cycles of destructive patterns that hurt you, you’ll create a new way of being and this will become your new normal…until you decide to shift again.
3 keys to personal freedom:
1. Believe in yourself and trust your soul
2. Set boundaries for yourself
3. Celebrate your wins
You cannot discover freedom without having experienced some form of chaos within. Out of chaos comes order, and part of that chaos is remembering who you are. Until you know who you are, you cannot choose what you want in life.
Are there any ways that you can improve your life by being more self disciplined? I’d love to hear from you!
