Self-discipline is an extremely useful skill, but not the easiest to master. These discipline affirmations will help you strengthen your self-discipline and as a result, you will get more done. Say good-bye to stress and start taking action!

People naturally look for comfort in all situations and tend to avoid things that make them uncomfortable. You need to keep this in mind, so that you understand why it’s sometimes so hard for you to sit down and get to work.

How to strengthen your self-discipline

Knowing that procrastination is natural, but beatable, will help you take action. Whenever you know you should do something that you don’t feel like doing, remember that your brain is simply looking for the easiest way to avoid the slight discomfort of doing what you don’t want to do.

Keep in mind that just because you first think that something is difficult or boring, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is. Often things are easier than you’d first think.

And even if that is not the case, the faster you start, the faster you will be done!
