Discipline is being able to force yourself to do something in spite of how you feel over and over and over until it becomes a habit.
The word discipline comes from the Latin word discipulus meaning “student”. Or you can say to be a learner. In other words having self discipline in being a good student who wants to learn. It is a high level of awareness to give yourself a command and follow through with it. If you want to be a great musician, you have to practice playing your instrument every day for hours. If you want to be a great athlete you have to train your mind and body every day, in spite of how tired or achy you feel. This goes for anything you desire to master.
This year my word that I am giving my attention to is FOCUS. I will discipline myself to focus on the things I desire to manifest into my life in a relaxed state of mind. I say relaxed because if I try to force myself to do this in a tense way, I am just sabotaging my efforts. What is it that you really want to create in your life for 2020? With discipline, you can make it happen. Hire a coach, get an accountability partner and practice, practice practice!
Be a good learner, be disciplined!

If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost our future.
The one person that is standing in your way of living your best life is YOU!
I can remember my self-sabotaging behaviors when I was younger. Boy if I only knew then what I know now. I was getting in my own way of success but didn’t see it. It’s not easy to see your blind spots. Until I started working with a coach I was continually shooting myself in the foot and blaming someone or something else for my setbacks.
Taking responsibility for my thoughts, feelings and actions requires disciple. To take an honest look at what I’ve been doing or not doing also takes courage.
What I’ve learned was to stop over analyzing. I must get in the zone and just be and do. I had to visualize myself as the person I wanted to be and then act the part. The minute the monkey mind started coming in my head, I was cooked.
The results are sneaky but can start to show up causing dis-ease, bad relationships, lack of money, loss of a job or any other place.
It takes continued focus and practice to learn how to stop the monkey mind from taking over. That is why a coach is essential in helping you.
So, if you’re having a quarrel between your past and present, you too have lost your future. And without a future you’re not going anywhere.

In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Most people know what foods are healthy and what foods aren’t good for them. So why do people eat foods that they know are not good for them? Most people know that smoking isn’t good for them. So why do people smoke? Most people know that exercise is a healthy regime to maintain their bodies health. So why don’t people do it? This list could go on and on, but you get the point. Do you do, what you know?People know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. If you are not in alignment with your body, mind, and spirit, you will be guided by your emotions, which will always steer you down the path of least resistance. You must be consciously aware of your choices, and disciple yourself to choose what you already know is best for you. So, you can do what most people know, and don’t do, or you can do what you know, and be healthy, and empowered. The choice is yours.

We all know the importance of taking care of our bodies, or at least I hope we do. Having a good workout to build up our muscles and keep strong to maintain a healthy body is so important to stay healthy. Stretching and keeping limber is also vital for our bodies health. However if you are not working out your mental muscles, you probably have weak physical ones too. It all starts with a mind that is disciplined. Building up your mental muscles is the only way you will achieve your goals. There are six mental muscles. They can be developed through practice, just like good body work out. Hiring a life coach is like a personal trainer for your mind. Some times you need a jump-start to motivate you.
