The Importance of Discipline

Hello Everyone!



I feel to maintain a balance in life you should have discipline in every aspect of your life. Here a few ways I try to maintain discipline in my life.

1. Hold on to God's Hand

I'm a firm believer in the saying "Keep God first in all the things you do." As always I'm not one to push my religious beliefs on anyone, but when I feel undisciplined I turn to God, pray, and read the Bible. I may not be an overly religious person, but turning to God helps me put things into perspective and see things clearer with a level head.

2. Self Control

If you think about it, how can you have discipline if you don't have any self control? I have to admit maintaining self control can be difficult at times but nonetheless self control is important to keep things into perspective.


3. Set Goals

It's a known fact that life isn't going to go the way we want it to all the time, that doesn't mean you shouldn't set goals for yourself. Setting goals keeps can help you stay focused and motivated.


How do you keep yourself disciplined?

I went grocery shopping this morning and when I went to the non grocery side in Walmart I noticed they were putting out Fall decor. I didn't get anything, but I thought the decor was cute. I'm so over Summer and this heat!




I really don't plan on doing anything tomorrow, so I decided to have a pre Labor day dinner with leftovers for tomorrow. I hope evey has a Happy Labor Day!




I also want to thank those of you who left such kindness, support, and suggestions on my last post about my blog's pictures getting deleted. Your words mean so much to me!! If you want to read what happend and how solved the issue CLICK HERE

  6. The trick for staying disciplined for me is to keep the end goal at the front of my mind. I ask myself, "Is what I want right now going to push me toward my goal or away from my goal?" That helps me keep going sometimes. Also, taking breaks from being disciplined 100% of the time helps too. It keeps you from buring out on whatever you're working on. One or 2 days off is much better than getting frustrated and giving up.

    I'm over the heat too! I have to keep myself from buying all of the fall decor. The fall stuff just speaks to me, and I'm not even all that into decorating! lol Good luck on all of your goals, Pilar! I have faith in you.
