Discipline = Punishment?
How do you feel when you hear the word “discipline?”
Good, bad, indifferent?
To me, discipline feels like punishment.
In fact, that’s another definition of the word!
And yet we all hear again and again, “you’ve got to have
But Screw That!
The rebel inside of me wants to run the other direction when she hears that.
My eyes roll up in my head and I feel
“If that’s what it takes to be successful. Screw that!!”
I bet you have a little bit of this rebel inside of you
Discipline Feels Harsh
When the rebel hears “discipline” she envisions stern teachers, drill sergeants, or the harsh tone and words of your parents from when you were young.
You see, especially when you come from a background with any type of harshness and judgment from a parental figure, you’re very likely going to have a reaction to words like “discipline.”
But you’ve had this expectation, because of the toxicity & trauma, that to be successful it’s got to be “hard” and that you have to drive yourself toward accomplishment through harshness.
But that’s just not true.
It’s flipping the entire concept on its head and understanding that you don’t really need “discipline.”
Yep, you heard that right!
You don’t need discipline in order to be successful.
The Alternative To Discipline
What you really need is commitment.
When you’re committed to doing something.
Fully on board.
You do it.
And it feels GOOD to do it.
And you persist and keep moving.
Not because you feel guilty and ashamed of yourself. But because you know you’re worth it.
It Can Be Easy
Accomplishing your goal doesn’t have to feel like a big forced drag of an endeavor.
Because you’re moving TOWARD what you want (your goal).
Rather than moving away from what you don’t want (the idea of someone disciplining you).
The best type of motivation is always feeling motivated in the creation of something, rather than running from something (this is a key tenet of manifestation).
So don’t feel bad if you’ve never jammed with the idea of discipline.
Most people from harsh backgrounds don’t.
There are ways you can adapt and make achieving your desires FUN and EASY while leaving nasty words like “discipline” by the roadside.
