Self discipline is one of the qualities any individual needs to excel in life. For you to imbibe the culture of self discipline, you need to come out of your comfort zone. Many of us have set goals we intend to achieve in life but because we feel too relaxed, we end up not achieving it and when that happens, all we do afterwards is procrastinate.

Being self discplined means doing the right things at the right time, even if you have to discomfort yourself to get that thing done, then do it. Also, you need to have a back up plan, like in the post self discipline works hand in hand with time management. Making good and effective use of your time shows you have self discipline.

Self discipline can also be attributed to setting up goals and at the same time having an execution plan towards achieving your goals. You also need to have a backup plan for any set goals.

A lot of good things comes when we are disciplined and many of us even practice self discipline without even knowing it. The most important thing about self discipline is to leave your comfort zone, don't feel too relaxed and start working towards achieving your set goals and objectives.

while the other will not be. Though, we are not perfect but we are expected to work towards perfection. To work towards perfection you have to truthfully examine your life or make your life pass through sincere evaluation and the person to do the best and accurate evaluation is you.

You have to be disciplined in this following areas of your life :

1. Spiritually : To be disciplined spiritual wise means to be able to set time for prayer and obey. It is not easy to do spiritual things, in fact the time you plan to spend to pray many things will come to your mind to do at the moment.
Discipline in this aspect of life is compulsory and very necessary. It is when you pray that you won't become a prey and it this aspect that controls every other aspects of life. To be discipline in this aspect, you can decide to wake up early than the usual time. Let's say you usually wake up by six am, you can discipline yourself to wake up earlier so as to have time to pray.
To meditate and study the word of God which is light, you can decide that I will always read my Bible everyday at least two or one chapter per day. Discipline in one's spiritual life is as important as food. When I say spiritual I mean your spirit man, the same way you feed your body with food like rice and beans, the only food your spirit man can eat is prayer and the word of God so discipline yourself so as not to starve your spirit man.

2. Academically : disciplinary action is required here. For every greatness or success in life there is always an extra input and that extra input is the ability to observe more disciplinary action.

Discipline in terms of academics is necessary, you can discipline yourself to read wide and not waiting for the lecturer before getting the essential information.

3. Work : You have to discipline yourself in all you do for the Bible says " seeth a man who is diligent in his work. To be diligent is an high level of discipline .
Discipline in the work of your hand will cause people to love you and also want to have business with you. Diligence is really necessary in all you do, be it pepper selling, wood cutter and so on.

4. Timing : time waits for no man so do what you want to do . People who lack disciple in this aspect are those who usually come late to meeting or church service because they refuse evaluate themselves and pray for to get to help and do the amend . Only a disciplined a person can get to meeting early.

Discipline is really an act that makes one's life better, to discipline is yourself is a great job but trust me, when you keep observing it and you didn't relent,with time you will get used to it and it will become part and parcel of you.

Discipline yourself because it is when you you're well disciplined you can discipline others.

Discipline is really essential in someone's life. You don't live a purposeful Iife when you don't have a set guide for yourself. When you discipline yourself it makes you to well positioned in life and also add values to your life.

When you discipline yourself in some certain ways it gives you a saner schedule. Let's take for instance you have a set rules for yourself when it comes to academics that makes you use your time wisely at the right time. It also makes you one of the best student if truly the rules that guide you is well framed and you are consistent with it.

Self discipline also adds value to you in the society. Because there are some things people will do but because you are well disciplined you won't indulge in it. It also makes you to respect people's opinion and people honor you for that.

Even spirituality needs Self discipline. If truly you want to go further in life and you want to actualize your glorious destiny you need to be well discipline when it come to spiritual things. You don't just live life the way it comes instead you live life according to the set rules that's backed up with God.

Finally, let's have the urge to be self disciplined. We all needs it if truly we want to affect our generations.

Self discipline contribute a lot in setting a goal. It means sacrificing yourself for your grater future. Minimising your spends on expenses like food, clothes and other want in order to make provisions for your needs in life. Discipline yourself in the area of your spiritual life whereby you have to let go of one habit or the other, anything that you found your happiness doing it but contradict the plan for your life. Avoid moving with Friends that has no plans for their future..
Self discipline in summary is the limitations to ones way of life.

I have come to noticed something recently, among the youth of today's generation, something that is so common among the youth of today's.

We are so good at giving excuse and procrastinating, what we ought to have done, or do at a very points we go ahead, give excuse and procrastinate.

This two things, as make many youth, be lazy.
Opportunity, that would have turn our life around and put an end to poverty, we go ahead and give excuse and procrastinate, people have notice that habit, in us, instead of helping us, they will not because, they knew we are going to give excuse.

If we can fight this two things, believe me, we will be a better person.

There is nothing that is as rewarding as self discipline. Emphatically self discipline is the surest and most reliable way to attain success and retain success.Anyone who has made his or her mind up to attain success must adopt self discipline as basis. Everyone that ever became successful in life and destiny business wise,academic wise, career wise and other wise were all people who adopted self discipline.To retain and maintain success you need self discipline. Any success not well maintained can be lost many have loosed their success because when they became successful they decided to adopt a standard that was not self discipline.Conclusively : I will like to say that self discipline is rewarding and very profitable.

It's good to be self disciplined but sometimes you need to adjust your self discipline most especially when you are around or among people. Discipling yourself shouldnt be a reason why you should disregard others or see others as not well trained.

One of the reason I broke up with my ex, was his self discipline attitude. Am the type that loves doing things at my own pace and chance. I dont do something when I know I dont have the power to complete it.

My mum trained us in a manner that we dont force things to happen, we patiently do things and making sure we do it at the right time.

My ex will always want me to do things at his own said time with a must. Even if I'm very sick, I must do the needful in the house. You cant eat and drop a plate even if you are strength less, you must wash the plates. As for me, I hate inconveniency. It's your house, nobody will kill you for not doing something. Been neat shouldnt mean stucking yourself and doing everything when you know you dont have the strength.

A lot of people takes self discipline other way around. They tend to suffer themselves all in the name of been disciplined. Please, who are you being disciplined for?

Self discipline, what is self discipline? It is a process whereby you are contempted with whatever you have, whether little or big.
When you are self discipline, it shows that the spirit of jealousy is far from you.
I came across a young lady today, a year one student, in fact, she just got the admission after staying good three years at home.
She bought an iPhone of three hundred thousand naira.
She does nothing, tell me how the end of that girl will be, when she is not contempted.
She does not have self discipline, this led her to be promiscuous.
She felt to realise, that she is endangering her life.
This singular act, can lead her to death.
She might one day, follow men without knowing that their aim for evil sacrifice, occultic men, just because she is not contempted.

Self discipline is the ability to be able to control yourself in order to be hardworking,

If you must Excel in life, you must learn to build self discipline. what ever is your goal or aim in life that you want to achieve, it is achievable if only you can discipline yourself.
When you lack self discipline, your confidence will be affected as well because self discipline birth accomplishment.
I will also like to discuss on the importance of self discipline.

1. Self discipline helps your relationship to be more stonger. It is only those who are small disciplined that can go into relationship and avoid pre marital sex. Which may lead to transfer of diseases, and unwanted pregnancy.

2. Self discipline brings about respect. When you are well disciplined you will be respected by your family, your society, you church even among your friends. When people sees you all what they are seeing is a responsible man. Reason been that you've worked on your self, and you are well disciplined.

How do you build self discipline
1. Try to create goals or challenges. Sometimes I wonder why some people say i am weak and very lazy I was even unable to wake up. Like seriously. I have set so many goals that sleep if not because is something that is necessary and sometimes when it comes it goes beyond control I would have been skipping night because it looks like is causing some kind of delay. Set goals, if want to be disciplined. If you remember the goal you will wake from your slumber.

Self discipline involves a series of gradual changes to be coming the better person although it takes time but the reward is of lasting and the reward can't be imagined or measured. Although for someone to reach the desired goal of self-discipline it takes a lot of time and it's Takes Focus.

For me self-discipline involves Changing everything about oneself starting from the character to behaviour and so on.Self discipline also assist one in becoming a person who has the ability to make decisions that will be of the benefit to him or her and it also involves having the ability to say no even when being pressured by your friends or peers.
Although there is more to self discipline can what is been outlined here but we all can work out improving ourselves.

@Princess: self discipline is a very strong topic as long as success and long life is concern.

I was telling somebody that self discipline is only sure way for attaining success and greater height.

Self discipline according to me is the ability to discipline ones mouth, eyes, hands, legs,ears and resources.

From the Bible stand point, discipline is a practice of training oneself to obey rules and code of behaviour.Discipline ensures that individuals behave I'm an acceptable way anytime , anywhere and any day.

While I was coming from church the Lord spoke to me, he said anyone who can resist the nakedness of a Lady will go far. This is only going to be possible on the platform of self discipline.

Self discipline simply means an individual bringing his or her conduct into agreement with God's behaviour code.

Examples of men who exhibited self discipline

1.2 kings 5 vs 15-16 and 26. Elisha.
After prophet Elisha prayed for the Syrian Army general, it was recorded that Naaman brought gift to the prophet but the prophet rejected it.
It takes self discipline to be able to reject such magnitude of good, especially when it is coming from such caliber of man.
Gehazi a man who was not disciplined enough ended collected the gift. The outcome of that act of indiscipline brought upon him and his generation a curse.

2. Daniel.
In the book of Daniel from chapter 1 to 6, how Daniel and the three Jewish boys exhibited self discipline by rejecting to defile themselves with the king meal.

3. Joseph.
Any time I read about Joseph I get motivated and encouraged. Joseph was a man who was given sex free of charge but he rejected it. Self discipline sometimes will make you offend so many people. It may make you look strange and different among others.

Samson died early due to indiscipline.
He couldn't discipline his body.
The outcome of that act of indiscipline led to the termination of his life and the removal of eyes which speak of vision.

Indiscipline can make you loose your sight which Indicate your vision.
Any man without sight (vision) will end up in destruction.

Thank you so much.

The single most important attribute to becoming successful is self-discipline. It helps you stay focused on reaching your goals, gives you the gumption to stick with difficult tasks, and allows you to overcome obstacles and discomfort as you push yourself to new heights.

What exactly is self-discipline? It's the ability to control your impulses, emotions, reactions and behaviors it allows you to forego short-term gratification in favor of long-term satisfaction and gain. It's saying "no" when you really want to say "yes." It isn't about leading a restrictive and boring life void of enjoyment. In fact, it's next to impossible to be self-disciplined in all areas of your life. Rather than attempting to be disciplined in all you do, use it to focus on what's most important.

**Blessed be God who has blessed us with all Spiritual Blessings**

In every way of our life we(human) are tend to lose control over what is not, we will at some point want to over do or outdo that thing we find doing. The only thing that can keep us in line is what we have created and established for ourselves..'SELF DISCIPLINE'..
Just like the check and balance in the system of government, self discipline is there is keep us in check so we won't lose our mind, our body and soul..
The best thing one can do for him/herself is to be disciplined personally..

Instead we are all train to develop it. Though, it's a virtue embedded inside each and everyone of us but if not properly trained it won't develop. There are so many ways we can train ourselves to be self discipline and the first way is from our Parent.

You need to know how to relate with people outside your environment. You also need to work on your Character because this is what will keep people to stay around you and also connect good people to you. Once there's a problem with your character, there's a problem with you.

Furthermore, there's a lot of benefits in self discipline. When you are self disciplined it makes people to respect you and also have value for your opinions. People love those who are self disciplined even if you don't have any reasonable thing to say they will always want to hear from you. It also makes people to honor you because you've already placed a value on yourself so nobody dares take you for granted.
