Discipline is the ability to self regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to do the things you need to do in order to achieve your goals. Discipline is also a skill. The age of instant information has led to generations who lack discipline because of instant gratifications. Discipline is built through consistent effort without seeing much result but knowing the results will come if action is consistent taken. Before the internet, cars, phones, and the modern area people had to work for days, months or years to acquire what they wanted before they were rewarded. This built their discipline. Now we can order pizza and it shows up 10 mins later. A desire triggered an impulse that impulse created and action that action produced a result. However, the action needed to acquire what we want is so small that we have not needed to develop prolonged action without seeing the light at the end of the tunnel aka the reward. Which is one of the reasons why so many people are overweight today. It is because they try and they give up after a few days or weeks. ASSIGNMENT: To develop this discipline (it can be in multiple or different areas of your life) we must progressively get better at taking challenging action. We must do the shit we don’t want to, we must do something that is hard for us daily. It must physically, mentally or emotionally challenge us. For some of you it will be getting 10k steps a day, for other is will be sticking to your meal plan, for others it won't be cutting workouts, reps or sets. For some of you it will be drinking enough water in the day. So decide right now what is the one thing you are going to do that is a challenge for you daily that you will complete. After you have mastered 1 add 1 more then after a few weeks add another one I recommend doing 3-5 things maximum.
