D is for Discipline
Negative feelings, positive feelings.
All depending on what the word means for you.
To me it's been mostly negative.
I often go around thinking: I have no discipline, and that translates into a number of things like I can't keep my things in order, I can't keep a diet and loose weight, I can't keep a training schedule, I can't… I can't… And I fall into the trap of negative thinking, again and again.
All of the things listed is what I want to do, that's not the problem. The probem is that I'm focusing on that I suck at doing them.
What if I tured that around? Instead of berating myself when I can't reach my own (too high) standards, why not praise myself when I've managed a step in the right direction? I put the sewing basket back where it belongs, good! I ate only one biscuit, great! I took a walk today without needing to, wow!
That's a difference. One I'm determined to made. Now, if I only have the discipline to do it…
