There is no arguing that to become successful, one must be highly self-disciplined. Being self-disciplined, of course, is not an easy task but it brings you many perks. As a content writer, you might already know the importance of self-discipline and what significance it holds in your life.

So, what are the perks of being self-disciplined?

  • You are in control of yourself.
  • You overcome procrastination and achieve success.
  • You feel satisfaction within yourself.
  • You will wish to work towards bettering yourself each day.
  • You understand your strengths and weaknesses better.

How to try being more self-disciplined?

  • Make a list with all your goals. Your goals could be small or big, but do not shy away from noting them down.
  • Tick off your goals each time you have achieved them. This way, you are almost maintaining a to-do list.
  • Understand where your weaknesses lie, and be more accepting of them rather than being in denial. Remove all distractions that come your way, or limit them to a minimum to begin with. Find a different purpose to start your journey.
  • Talk to someone about how you are feeling. Often, sharing your thoughts and goals with someone gives the motivational boost that you might require to being one step closer to attaining self-discipline.
  • Start with small changes in your habits initially. You can even follow the 21-day habit rule where you commit in doing something everyday in bringing a change in your habits.
  • Meditate for a minute or two every time you feel overwhelmed by anything.
  • Start today! Instead of pushing it to a new Monday, start from today!


Of course, it is easier said than done, but at the end of the day, self-discipline comes from within. So, if you are not ready to bring about that change in yourself, almost nothing will be able to shake your roots. Still, this does not mean that you criticise yourself for not being your “ideal” self! All you need to do is take in a deep breath, and believe in yourself.
