I had an interesting conversation with a colleague about how they don’t know how I just keep going. My colleague asked me what is “The Secret”. At the time I told her I didn’t know, I just keep pushing to get things done. That question stayed with me long after the conversation was over. I thought about it and realized there isn’t a simple answer to this question. I did however drill down to one of the top “secrets”, if you will…that keeps me going. *Drum roll please* I would say discipline is one of the top qualities that make people successful on any level. Measuring success is a totally different subject matter that we will get to at another date. Back to discipline…everyone has their level of discipline that makes them shine. For me I have several things that I am discipline about, while there are other things I am working towards improving my level of discipline on. In the last few years the biggest accomplishments for me regarding being disciplined are #1 Taking better care of me and #2 Professional growth. I realized that I wasn’t doing very well at self-care and finally started doing something about it. Watching what I eat, getting workouts in on a regular basis, being mindful of my stress level, counting my blessings regularly, and resting both physically and mentally. As far as professional growth I have become disciplined in consistently learning and teaching. Don’t get me wrong there are still times that I struggle and those excuses start to creep in, but that discipline kicks in and I push through. Ultimately discipline is that final push that gives you the extra edge in whatever your goal is. The key is figuring out the plan to get and stay disciplined. You may have to work at it for a while, but it will always be worth it. Check in and let me know what you are getting disciplined with, email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Until next time!
