How Controlling Our Urges And Staying Disciplined Will Lead To Success


Everyone can identify things that they enjoy doing and everyone wants to be successful; however, one word separates you from success and that word is discipline. For example, I love to sleep, go out, have a good time and sometimes waste money on things I do not need.

Some of you let your good times and emotions control your life or impact it so much it leads to problems with your potential success. Some of these major issues can be over-indulgence in sex, drugs, materialistic items and sleep.

If you cannot control where these activities fall on your priority list, you will only fail and create more problems. Therefore, it is essential for you to stay aware of your goals and things that are standing in your way of achieving them.

We have all had nights out in which we spent too much and are so hungover the next day that we can’t get any work done. The occasional splurge is fine, but if you do it too much, you should reassess your goals.

There are people who will do the opposite of what you’re doing, which is setting them up for the success that you aspire to claim. Discipline is the difference between the weak and strong.

If you waste the majority of your time high, drunk or roaming around for sexual partners, you are wrong. Take a look and review how much time you waste per day or week on these activities.

Additionally, compare these uses of time to what you could have accomplished in that time. Do your “hobbies” get in the way of your progress or hinder your performances? Try to spark relationships with people who will keep you on track and motivated.

In regards to sleep, just get the amount you need. Stop wasting time lying in bed; force yourself to get up and commit to a list of activities you planned to do.

Again, a like-minded friend will help you to achieve this. Consider the disciplined people who get up impossibly early to take on the world. Don’t miss out on opportunities just because you slept in.

Control your emotions to keep conflict away. If you are feeling confused, angry, down or anything else negative, be aware of it and then figure out how to control it.

Do not let the negativity get in the way of your work or relationships because doing so will only make life more difficult for you.

Talk to a friend, exercise or do an activity to get your mind straight. By being "moody," people will burn bridges, set negative tones and vibes and break connections. If you are having a bad day, keep in mind that someone is having a worse one.

Lastly, consider your spending patterns. We have all bought things we don’t need, but some of us do so regularly and extremely irresponsibly. Review your spending decisions and consider what you might be able to change.

You are almost guaranteed success if you apply all these tips to your life. Think about the future with every decision you make. If you abide by these steps, your life will be much simpler and you will likely be much happier as a result.
