Today’s article is inspired by my own procrastination ,its Friday today and my post is late by 3hrs .There is no excuses for not delivering in time it’s all based on the lack of myself discipline ,because I’m going through this right now I can easily see the challenges causing it.
- Laziness and excuse artists
Hard important things are not easy to do, the easy things to do you do them without thinking and the things that’s you have habit of doing comes easy. But new one’s like writing this blogs earlier on its easy and exciting but as I keep going enthusiasm get low and the only thing that’s can keep me of float is myself discipline.
Being lazy is common drag and waste time doing shinny things or things that’s won’t have any results. I have had time today to be in a place of physical work and its easy to see things that’s will make a huge impact there but one guy was busy cutting corners in a serious job you need to discipline yourself to avoid doing too much housekeeping and less productive work cause your supervisor will notice you and make sure you are the 1st to go when times are hard.
Excuses are the killer of self discipline that’s why they are negatively affective, if you don’t do something important and have a reason why you don’t do it then you are safe. But in reality you will be legging behind and excuses never shows up when it’s time to show some productivity and time keeps spinning.
So what’s you need to do every time you find a reason to do something, just do it or do nothing and see what’s will happen. Here is an example you have a task that’s you need to do and you are craving TV series rather than choosing the latter ,decide to do nothing if you get bored do the important task then after that’s it will open the window after you have finished it to actually enjoy the series.
2. Its require endurance and a goodwill
Watching a TV series produced by 50 cent called For Life, the starring shows a serious courage from being a convict to becoming a lawyer since he was arrested for the thing he didn’t do. He endured and disciplined himself to read hard law books and started appealing to court and helping other inmates like him ,while he is trying to get the files of his own case and people behind this scandal haven’t give up and they suppress all his efforts but he doesn’t give up.
That’s discipline on steroids maybe there are no consequences of not doing what you supposes to do but trust me there are always those underneath but maybe it’s not like the above story where all odds seems to be against you.
Life on its own is hard add something that’s you suppose to do everyday then its way harder. Employers have to constantly motivate their workers to love and see value in their work and after few year add a little drip but worker still finds reason’s to strike and do all sorts of inefficiency they can get its end up being a habit that’s people needs pep talk and the problem starts when a person try to start his or her own business and have to motivate himself and his worker’s.
So self discipline is hard but the reason for that’s is we don’t know that there is such thing, our why’s are lame the strong one’s are through nature like having a kid now imagine hustling for your child and focusing on bettering his life and end up forgetting about yours and not knowing how your child will turn out is a real mystery that’s why the discipline should come from within and your north star be your better self.
3. Its needs giving up the good stuff
Delaying gratification is a normal thing for people who are successful and those who are going to be .It’s hard to not eat your favorite food so you can stay on shape, it’s hard to save more than 10% so you can achieve your financial goals earlier, it’s hard to maintain the relationship schedule to make your love life work on your busy life but that’s what’s you need to do to get all of the above right.
Person who is going to make it in what’s ever he or she is doing avoids distractions, also avoids shinny things and trends and most importantly don’t try to impress other people they know what’s their doing is more important to their lives than a friend opinion.
Showing up is what’s its takes to start going in a right direction, the physical work I’m talking about since I work for myself I have a tendency of showing up whenever I like but I do what’s I can when I get there, I can try to do more and wake up early but I believe in effectiveness and lie to myself that’s I’m using the 80/20 rule. I know I can come early and leave late and fool around all the time or just come at 10 and work hard for 3 hours then leave until I reach my target.
4. No one or few people practice it.
Worker’s constantly come late at work be different, at church no one likes to start a song be different, in class no one likes to give the teacher the answer be different, no one wants to play midfielder take that’s position and master it. In most cases you can be the opposite of what’s most people are doing and do what’s they hate and win in life that’s all it takes.
Don’t be scared of other people actually build a system for yourself to not be scared of people ,my uncle is better at this I know him he was a cop and people became his friends. He’s famous and can get along with anyone his discipline to master that’s skill and ability to make a small talk has became handy in his own life, he was an investigator and people were open to him a shared what’s they knew, maybe you may argue that’s he learnt this at police academy but I may respond the discipline to apply those tools is what’s important.
I learn the people’s skill by practicing it and once I move away from people for the long period of time I found myself beginning to be an introvert which is not a good trait for person who is ambitious like me.
5. The audience put some pressure
I will start by saying show people you’re positive traits as soon as you can, you hard working ethics and more. Show that’s side of you so it won’t be like you are changing all of the sudden, or you will have spectator’s that’s won’t do you any good.
The remarks and gossips and who said what’s about you ,why you are working so hard and so on try to be in a space where this is not too much. You need it to guide you but if it all you get then you are bound to be stopped in your tracks. People you need are those who are engaged like you in something this are winner’s .ever since I started something most business people has gave me courage and great influence and positivity.
One said you charging too low ,other said I see you one day having a million rand and that’s really caught me off guard but it’s meant a lot and I’m positive I will get there and I’m working towards it so hard and the understanding I have is there are conventional ways of doing things and there are really business savvy ways all hard work but require self discipline.
Thanks for catching up with us, LnM we are nothing without you keep grooming yourself and win. I don’t consider myself a motivation talker or something like that’s .i am a practical person and sometimes when I give an advice people don’t take it because its requires self discipline like the other day my little brother who stays with my father said he wants’ 4k so he can trade but he don’t have it.
I told him to save and skip his birthday celebration this year and on December forget about new clothes because all this require discipline he came back and suggested what’s if he sells his laptop?
I figure I don’t have to answer that it’s what’s app and nothing he can see anyway. So if you ask a person an advice be sure you really needs it and respect that person enough to argue and tell why this advice won’t work for you than going to look for another crazy plan and present it to him/ her. If you knew what’s you were going to do why bother other people?
