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!
