There is one practice you can develop that will guarantee you greater success. That practice is discipline.
This one quality will do more to assure that you accomplish wonderful things with your life than any other practice. This quality is so important that it’s impossible for you to ever achieve what you are truly capable of, if you don’t develop it.
Successful men and women are highly disciplined and when you develop the same levels of discipline, you will begin to achieve the same results that they do. It is a habit, a practice and a way of living.
Success is always the result of long, sustained periods of focused effort on a single goal.
Fortunately, the quality of discipline is something that you can learn through practice. Once you’ve mastered the ability to discipline yourself, there is virtually no goal that you cannot accomplish.
There are several disciplines you need to develop if you want to achieve your full potential.
Most people are trying to live their lives without clear, specific, written goals, because they haven’t mastered goal setting.
- Write down your specific goals. List the details of what you want to achieve!
- Include timelines. Goals without timelines are just dreams.
- Be realistic with your goal setting. Set goals you’re capable of achieving, within a specific timeframe.
- Don’t be afraid to alter a goal. After you set out to achieve a goal, you may see a clearer path to achieving it, and need to reroute.
Many people think that they are too busy to achieve their goals. These are people who don’t prioritize their goals!
Studies show that you will save ten minutes in execution for every minute that you invest in planning.
Plan your steps, then take action!
