Understanding what Discipline is
Understanding the benefits of Discipline

Learn to do what successful people do to get and keep their success.

It's a well-known fact - when we first enter this world, and for a few years after, all we know is what we want and need.

A child believes the world revolves around them. And for the most part, at least for the first few years, it pretty much does. And it really needs to so a person is given all they need to give them the best chance to grow.

Then - while it can be much to our dismay, and one of the hardest lessons to learn - eventually we do learn that our personal desires are not the only or most important ones in the world at large.

This is when we need to begin Learning New Skills.

This is when we begin learning Discipline.

What it is The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Discipline as "training that corrects, molds or perfects".

The Workplace Moxie Dictionary defines Discipline as "the art of learning certain behaviors" - for your own good.

These behaviors help us to get what we can of our desires while interacting with and respecting the desires of others in the world at large.

How Discipline is learned There are people in positions of authority who teach and enforce guidelines.

Beginning with our earliest caretakers, usually one or both parents, (or guardians), and then our schoolteachers.

We can find these guidelines very frustrating at first. But as we mature and become wiser in the ways of the world, we begin to understand their purpose. Which is basically to help us find our own way in the world as responsible human beings.

The benefits of Discipline If we're fortunate, we find there can be a great deal of pleasure in creating a sense of order and regularity. Of knowing poise and a sense of balance for ourselves.

We've developed the Discipline needed to create order out of chaos. We know who we are and what we're about. And when we feel centered within ourselves, it makes our journey through every day life a good deal easier.

One of the first Disciplines, and probably one of the very hardest to learn, is to think about your beliefs, (your thoughts and feelings), before you speak or take action.

Have you heard - "It's better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it".

So often we can become so "riled" by someone's statement or action that we react in such a way as to end up making ourselves look bad. This is the last thing you desire. Especially in the work world.

Listen to learn The best thing you can do for yourself is learning to listen.

This is a Discipline within itself.

It's understandable and reasonable that you desire your chance to speak. But - If and when you become so focused on what you desire to say, that you don't listen to what someone else has to say, you miss out on a chance to learn something.

Look at it this way - You already know what you know, so why not listen and learn what someone else knows.

This is especially true in the work world.

Whether you're an employer or an employee, listen to the other. Because they're the ones who will be able to help you succeed.

And know this - You don't always need to act to get what you desire.

Sometimes your desires will be satisfied through stillness. Give your desires a chance to be answered within their own time.

Bottom line ... "I believe there is no escape from the rule that we must do many, many little things to accomplish just one big thing. This gives me patience when I need it most." (James Dupont)

Practicing Discipline is one of the very best ways to get the success you desire.

And - as an added bonus - It will get you the success you deserve.
