I haven’t always been a disciplined person. In the past I couldn’t follow even the simplest routines. I had an unhealthy diet, exercised little (and hence, was overweight), and didn’t have the discipline to commit to the process of changing myself.
Today, I follow a strict routine. I have a morning routine, go to the gym three times a week and regularly practice several other sports including tennis, cycling, and swimming. I maintain a healthy diet and constantly work on new, challenging goals to become a better person.
It took me years before I finally understood what discipline is and how to apply it in my situation. Now I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you.
In my first book about self-discipline, How to Build Self-Discipline: Resist Temptations and Reach Your Long-Term Goals, I approached the subject of building self-discipline from the perspective of developing impulse self-control.
In this book you will learn the ins and outs of building long-term, daily self-discipline rather than just situational willpower. While How to Build Self-Discipline was more focused on techniques to deal with specific problems, Daily Self-Discipline is about turning yourself into a person who becomes more self-disciplined with each day – and can successfully use this skill for personal growth.
