SELF DISCIPLINE/ SELF CONTROL

 

Self-discipline is exercising control according to what you think instead of how you feel at the moment. Often it involves sacrificing the pleasure and thrill of the moment for what matters more. Setting goals, making plans to achieve them, and staying on track is hard work. The greater your capacity for self-discipline, the more rewards fall within your grasp. If you struggle with self-discipline, the good news is that it can be developed.

 

Self-discipline means demonstrating positive patterns of behavior and having the strength of mental and moral courage to accomplish tasks, manage time, and relate effectively with others. You can demonstrate self-discipline by doing your chores even though you may not want to or completing your school assignments on time.
