Growth Tools - Practical tools for meaningful growth

Self discipline delivers

“Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a
kind of order that sets me free to fly.”

~ Julie Andrews ~

Hi everyone,

Last week we identified one program you could do over and over to continuously uncover your authentic self: the Know Yourself workbook. But the workbook won't work for you if you do not take the time to do it!

The word 'discipline' makes most of us shudder. We may sense we are being forced to do something we don't want to do and that it will be hard. But isn't it true that self discipline reflects our ongoing commitment to something valuable we want and are giving ourselves?

If we seek personal change and growth, each of us must take our own initiative. I often say, "If it is to be, it is up to me." Through discipline, we express our personal commitment and willingness to persist to bring about positive results for our lives.

Getting started can be the biggest hurdle in the growth process. If you seek empowerment, then make the time to know yourself, however you choose to do that. Our workbook is only one option. You could also use journaling, meditation, reading inspirational works or any of the amazing variety of other tools available to us these days.

Protecting a certain time each day helps build a good practice. Block off time for you in your calendar. Set up triggers to remind you to reflect or write or rest throughout the day.

The best lumberjack sharpens his axe many times each day. How often do you sharpen your axe? How often do you plan your day, review your day, ask yourself a few smart questions, relax, enjoy or focus on what is important to you?

Resolve to evolve. Take little steps to set the stage. What times during the day and week are you ready to commit to becoming more of who you are? Support this intention by setting up your journal, workbooks and space for your self-reflection.

All Higher Awareness programs have daily reminders to help you hold the course and create positive change in your life.

Someone once said, "What chance can a man have to control his destiny when he can't control himself?" Bring a little commitment to your own growth and you'll prove how self-discipline delivers!
