Discipline is a very generic word and it implies a wide range of an individual’s attributes and daily practices.
It is a continuous and lifelong process.
That said, how can you develop self-discipline?

to have control over your time, mindset, temptation, and thought process.
Yes, discipline can be all of these.
But, in short, the most practical definition of a disciplined life would be to have a planned, organized, and systematic day-to-day life.
So, here I’m to help you with the most practical tips and habits if you could incorporate them every day in life, you can achieve that.
While I write this, I’m reminded of a proverb that my dad always refers to while we used to work out together,
Yes, my dad and I do exercises together 🙂 and I learned a lot of nuances from him.
So, Voila ….
“With a stout heart a mouse can lift an elephant”
If you are determined and consistently train yourself on something, almost anything is possible.
1) Create a disciplined Routine:
A routine is nothing but a task or work that you do every day without fail.
aka being systematic in life.
There is a fulfillment that you will feel within when you are able to accomplish your tasks.
2) Have a Timetable:
Well, let’s try to go back to our good old school and college days.
We had numerous subjects and languages to learn.
Big fat books were handed over to us at the commencement of the school and all of us must have wondered “how am I going to learn all of these”?
The teachers did not haphazardly start with different subjects.
They had a PLAN. We had a minimum of 6 periods a day. Each subject was split into portions and each portion were allotted a specific time and limit within a day so as to cover the wide array of portions each passing day. Well, that is where consistency comes into play.
By the time you passed out each year, you did finish learning the entire book by covering little by little, each day. There was consistency.
3) Work on your will-power:
This word is almost non-existent these days and is forgotten by a lot of us.
“Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. But sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.”
– H.W Longfellow
I’m a fitness enthusiast ever since my childhood and have always enjoyed dance, exercises, aerobics, yoga, and the like.
When I was first introduced to squats (also called the king of exercises) and planks, I found them very difficult to perform, but I was so determined and kicked my willpower (that I can do it) to a higher level to do a 2 minutes squat and 1-minute plank.
People that follow a strict workout and diet regimen have a higher level of willpower and tolerance level.
For a normal person, it’s not easy to hold a 1 minute squat or plank. 🙂
When you train yourself to have great willpower, you will stay systematic and disciplined.
Do consider having an exercise routine, to stay focused on your everyday tasks.
Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.
– Earl of Derby.
Make your own rules and achieve one task a day. After all, little drops make the ocean.
Use all the resources that can help you have a disciplined life.
Form your own rules and enjoy happy and productive days ahead
