 Setting goals and working towards them.

The thing about self-discipline is that it cannot be developed overnight. You will find that the more you practice, it will become easier. Anyone can set a goal for themselves and work towards their goals, but in order to do this successfully, there are things you need to know first! Check out these tips below for help getting started. 

What is self-discipline?  Self-discipline is something we can all use; it's the ability to remain calm in situations that would otherwise stress us out or push our buttons. It's being able to say "no" when tempted with something we know we shouldn't have. It's being able to work towards our goals by setting them and then doing what it takes to achieve them.

There are three kinds of self-discipline: 

It doesn't matter if you are an adult or a child, anybody can develop self-discipline. 

Self-discipline is the ability to make healthy choices for yourself, and this is what makes you the person you are. There are many factors that influence our choice making process: 
Self-discipline works on a number of different levels: 
Every day in life we must make decisions – some greater than others – and this is where self-discipline functions. 
When we talk about self-discipline, we are talking about making healthy choices. It's our choice whether or not to eat that candy bar or to stay in bed on the weekend when it's cold outside. Self-discipline can be both internal and external; this means that there are things a person can control internally, and there are things a person can control externally. In the example of staying in bed, a person would decide to stay in bed on their own and not get out of bed on Saturday morning because they don't feel like it. There are certain things that the person cannot control on their own; it's not an option to stay in bed if it's cold outside-they have to go outside and do something. This is where external self-discipline comes in.

Self-discipline can be both internal and external, meaning that there are things a person can control internally, and there are things that the person cannot control externally. Therefore, there is a greater need for external self-discipline.

There are two kinds of self-discipline: internal and external. 

When it comes to self-discipline, some people are more successful than others. 
People are referred to as disciplined when they can stay focused on long-term goals or task, and have the patience to wait for the results. 
Self-discipline comes in many different forms like the ability to resist temptation, not giving into anger easily. Being able to stay focused on the task at hand even while experiencing distractions is another form of self-discipline. There are many different forms of self-discipline and they all fall under one general category called "self-control.

Some people are naturally more disciplined than others. 
People who are naturally disciplined will find it easier to make a commitment to a goal or task and keep it then those who are not. This can be for any number of reasons, either that they have had practice making commitments or that they were raised in a home where commitments were made and kept. 
The first step in developing self-discipline is knowing what you want to accomplish and why you want to accomplish it. Think about why you want the change in your life and how this will positively affect your overall wellbeing. Once you have a clear understanding of what this change will look like, you can begin to make plans on how to pursue it.

Physical strength, mental strength or both? 
The ability to control oneself and emotions are the same as far as self-discipline goes. When trying to develop your physical strength you must exercise your body against resistance. If you lift weights against weights then obviously the weight will be much easier. The same applies in our minds: when we say "I want" or "I shall" our bodies react with physical actions such as clenching our fists, tensing our arms and legs, creating tension and other physical responses.

Self-discipline has been getting more attention with the rise of technological and social media in recent years. Now that it is easier than ever to be distracted, people have been trying to find ways to stay focused on the task at hand. 

 Self-discipline leads to a better performance usually because you are more likely to be in control of your emotions and actions.

Plan out your goals – what would you like to accomplish? Set small, measurable goals so that you can see your progress along the way. This will help you stay motivated and keep you from quitting. Start small. Consider small steps like setting aside a few minutes to exercise each day. You may find that you can build up to a longer session by consistently adding on extra minutes each week.

Prioritize your tasks – what are the most important things that you need to do in order for you to accomplish the goal? 
Physical goals:  exercise, sleep, etc. 
Mental goals:  be productive, be social, etc.

Take breaks – occasionally your work will cause stress that causes you to get tired or frustrated and may make you feel overwhelmed and discouraged. It is important to know when to stop and take a break. 
It can also be beneficial if you are able to find a method that helps you relieve stress or relax. You could try some deep breathing exercises, meditation, listening to music or taking a short walk. 

When you set a goal for yourself, self-discipline helps you follow through with it and stay motivated throughout the process. Research has shown that people who are self-disciplined tend to be happier, more successful and show better control of their emotions than people who are not self-disciplined.

The effectiveness of self-discipline is likely partially due to genetics. Recent research shows that self-discipline is highly heritable, which is not much of a surprise given how important it is to success in life and the majority of factors influencing it are genetic. 
Disciplined people are usually raised by people who exercise discipline and thus tend to develop discipline as well. They also tend to be more successful in school and more likely to go to college, which also increases their chances of achieving high status positions later on and having a higher income.

Disciplined people are less likely than others to give up on personal goals since they have a strong internal drive.
