The One Key to Success Self-Discipline by GL Bajaj

Success won’t be achieved until your
priorities have assumed the proper place in your life.

When looking at all the hard things you need to do to be
successful, you have to keep in mind that the word “hard” has a bit
of ambiguity. Does hard mean difficult to understand, or does it mean difficult
to sustain?

The
secrets to success have been published and discussed by successful people over
and over again, from Norman Vincent Peal to Napoleon Hill, and these secrets can
be summarized as gaining self-knowledge, and concentrating on making that
self-knowledge work for you. That is a relatively easy concept to understand,
but it is the second part that makes success “hard.”

Perhaps
the core of the problem is discipline, and the concept of delayed
gratification. In order to reap the benefits of applied concepts, we have to
endure the tedium of repeated behaviors in the absence of immediate results.

Self-discipline can be considered a type
of selective training, creating new habits of thought, action, and speech
toward improving yourself and reaching goals. Self-discipline can also be task
oriented and selective.  We should View
self-discipline as positive effort, rather than one of denial.

Contrary to common belief, self-discipline does
not mean being harsh toward yourself, or living a limited, restrictive
lifestyle. Self discipline means Self-control, which is a sign of inner
strength
and control of yourself, your actions, and your reactions.

Self discipline gives you the power to stick to
your decisions and follow them through, without changing your mind, and is
therefore, one of the important requirements for achieving goals.

The possession of this skill enables you to
persevere with your decisions and plans until you accomplish them. It also
manifests as inner strength, helping you to overcome addictions,
procrastination and laziness, and to follow through with whatever you do.

Success
requires a sublimation of self to the requirements of others. It requires a
passion for understanding your emotions, your pride, and your priorities; so
that you can schedule your time so as to spend it on what is necessary, not on
what is necessarily pleasurable.

Success
isn’t achieved until your priorities have assumed the proper place in your
life, and that means excluding those aspects of your life that involve
achieving fleeting comforts
. It means cultivating a higher level of growth in
your mind and your aspirations.

When
the quality of your commitment involves a dedication to respecting the
contribution of those whom you rely on, then it becomes less an act of duty,
and more a labor of love, to attend to the little things in your business that
make it possible for your systems to function. The development of your own
character involves participation.
