Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

         “Everybody knows that you can’t succeed without discipline.”

Question from Andy Anderson:
“Can you make yourself do something you don’t really want to do in order to get a result you really want?”

Key Discipline:

  • Focusing on the result you really want!
  • GOAL SETTING

     FIVE SPECIFIC STEPS IN DEVELOPING DISCIPLINE

Discipline

1)      DETERMINE YOUR GOAL!
-Know what you really want
-Be specific and intentional in your VISION
-Be S.M.A.R.T!
S- Specific
M-Measurable
A- Actionable
R- Realistic
T- Time bound
-Keep your goals few in number. Focus on a goal!

 2)      LIST YOUR REASONS
-ASK WHY this goal is important
-LIST BOTH POSITIVE and NEGATIVE REASONS
-WRITE your list for each goal—CONNECT with them emotionally
-LIST IMPORTANT reasons for YOU
-ASK WHAT is at stake?

“Figuring out the Why makes the What so much easier!”

3)      IDENTIFY LIKELY OBSTACLES
-ANTICIPATE obstacles and BUILD STRATEGIES to overcome them!
-WRITE down at least ONE SPECIFIC STRATEGY FOR EACH OBSTACLE
e.g.
Obstacle:
 Mindlessly eating for lunch what you always eat. Going into the default mode and not being able to think through it.
Strategy
:  Plan where and what you’re gonna eat before leaving your house.
(More examples when you listen in the podcast).

obstacles

“Don’t plan at the moment because it’s too easy to give in to your default response… To give in to the impulse of the moment. You’ve got to be more INTENTIONAL, more STRATEGIC. ”

4)      DEVELOP NEW BEHAVIORS
-ASK, What are the POSITIVE NEW BEHAVIORS you want to develop to replace the old negative behaviors that you’re trying to get rid of?
-NEVER let the body tell the mind what to do!
-The body is always tired in the morning, afternoon and midnight, but THE BODY IS NEVER TIRED WHEN THE MIND IS NOT.

“Now if you’re only going to win any battle, you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body.” -George Patten

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING YOUR MENTAL FOCUS
  • FOCUSING SELF-CONTROL AND BEHAVIOR
  • EARN THE POWER OF INCREMENTAL CHANGE OVERTIME

***A Few Helpful Tips in LOSING WEIGHT!
- Eat healthy snacks! (almonds, celery, or carrots)
- Replace the unhealthy stuff
- Eat half the normal serving
- Choose simple grilled fish rather than beef or chicken

5)      STAY FOCUSED!
-READ your goals DAILY
-REVIEW YOUR REASONS why
-ANTICIPATE obstacles
-WORK on your new behavior

“If you get off track, DON’T BEAT YOURSELF”
“Sometimes it’s 3 steps forward 2 steps back.

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF CONSTANTLY RESTARTING

“At the end of the day, it’s not about what you accomplish but it’s what you are becoming. It takes adversity to change our character.”

  • DISCIPLINE IS NOT REALLY ABOUT WILL POWER, IT’S FOCUSING ON WHAT YOU REALLY WANT
