Self discipline is the key ingredient for success. Successful people have something in common. They have self-discipline. It helps you achieve your goals and it makes you happy over time. But what does it really mean?
Once you master self-discipline, you will see just how much more successful life can be. Here are some tips to develop self-discipline in life and business
1 Once a month, write down your goals and what you’ve accomplished during the past month.
2 Set up an accountability partner who will reach out to you weekly or bi-weekly with any feedback
3 Practice self-restraint by using a timer for certain tasks such as eating, working out, etc.
4 Track your progress with monthly checklists of accomplishments and people who are accountable for them.
5 Use apps like Habitica, which turns video game play into a productive exercise routine.
6 Take small mini-steps towards your goal by breaking it up into manageable chunks and rewarding yourself for each step along the way.

What exactly is it to be self discipline?
Self discipline is the act of exerting control over your impulses and behavior in order to achieve a goal. Self discipline takes hard work that requires patience, self-awareness, and self-control.
If you want to succeed in business, you need to have a healthy dose of self discipline.
The more disciplined you are, the easier it will be for you to remain focused on your goals and reach them—and the less likely it is that you’ll experience burnout.
The term “self-discipline” has is used by some people interchangeably with terms like will power or personal control but there are differences between these concepts:
Willpower requires conscious effort while self-control does not require any action on your part.
Personal control means taking charge of yourself rather than others (for example if you’re trying not eat junk food when everyone around you is eating it).
What does it take to attain self discipline
There are a number of ways that people can improve their ability to control and manage themselves.
Some methods include meditation, exercise, dieting/nutrition and yoga.
Yoga is an ancient spiritual practice which has been in use for centuries by various cultures in order to achieve physical as well as
mental health benefits such as improved concentration or greater focus on the present moment.
The process of meditating involves focusing one’s attention inwardly upon his or her breath while regulating thoughts through
focused breathing technique (i.e., inhaling deeply then exhaling slowly).
Meditation also includes other techniques like body scanning–scanning your entire body from head-to-toe with each inhalation and exhalation–or counting breaths during meditation.
