As I stepped into the new year, I decided to pick one word that would inspire and guide me into stellar results.
Not that one word can do that, but it creates a frame of mind that can help you push through when it gets tough.
I’m sure by now you’re wondering what the magic word is.
Actually, magic sounds good. But this is not a post about casting spells.
The word I chose was …
Boring, you might think. Next to magic, I might even agree with you.
But here’s why discipline might be what you need right now.
I’m very good at setting intentions.
Intentions allow your brain to gather energies and point them like a laser towards your goals.
Intentions set the wheels in motion and create a powerful momentum that gets you off the ground (and hopefully your bum, too).
Truthfully, it’s like casting a spell.
Once you set your “spell,” i.e. your intention, it’s not the time to sit on a sofa, eat popcorn, and wait for the universe to magically drop the results from a sky like a knight in shining armor.
I’m still waiting for one of those. He ain’t coming.
Discipline is what pushes intention into manifestation.
No knight needed.
Why you need discipline to get where you want to be:
- Discipline gets you up in the morning and keeps you late at night until you reach your goals.
- It guides your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
- Discipline allows you to conquer self-doubt and procrastination when you think your goals are too big or scary for you.
- It gives you control over your actions.
I can hear you ask: “If discipline is so magical, how the heck do I get me some?”
Look into your heart.
Sounds cheesy. I know. Hang on. Here’s my point:
WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART SING?
Don’t set artificial goals to satisfy others. Align your goals with your true dreams and desires.
When you’re passionate about things you want to create in your life, it’s easy to prioritize your daily actions and habits. You become…
That’s your true magic. Go ahead, unleash it!
You crafty witch, you!
