Discipline: It starts with you
What does it truly mean to be disciplined? Well let's look at it through the dictionary lens.
Per Merriam-Webster .com it is a noun and a verb.
Here are a couple examples:
One Noun Example:
"Control gained by enforcing obedience or order, orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior and SELF-CONTROL."
One Verb Example:
"To train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control."

Not only is a person, place or thing but it also an action.
So how can you become a disciplined person?
How can you put your practice into action?
Keep it SIMPLE: You create a plan of action for yourself.
Go back to the 2 definitions above of discipline and look for a common denominator, a word that is present in both the noun and verb definition.
Do you see it?
If you answered Self-Control you are correct!
This one is simply put; you literally control yourself.
Ewe, did I say the "C" word? The word Control is a lot like the other "C" word, Change.
Not a lot of people like change. The way I see it, is you change certain things daily to stay healthy. If you can keep it that simple, then you cut out a lot of the unneeded anxiety that is just waiting to jump on you and make you think..."Oh my Gosh this is so hard, I can't do this!" AGAIN, Keep it simple, then start small!
