Over the years, several people told me that I needed more discipline. (And I told myself so many times, too.) And many people believe you can’t achieve your goals without it.
I don’t believe that.
Not because I’m anti-discipline. I’m not. In fact, I’m verrry disciplined in a lot of things: in working out 5x a week. In taking good care of myself. In doing what it takes to make my book the best I can make it now, and publish it in June.
But here’s the thing:
I’m not disciplined because I force myself to do the things I need to do. I’m not disciplining myself to be disciplined. (Oh, god, did I just lose you there? Stay with me, I’ll probably make sense again soon.)
The discipline arises as a natural result of knowing what I want and what TRULY matters to me – and prioritizing that. When something comes from my soul and I choose it and KNOW that it’s mine?
I follow my intuition and do what it takes no matter what.
You could call that discipline – but that word often reeks of forcing and pushing and overruling what’s truly the right thing for you by what your mind thinks is best for you.
I prefer to call it alignment: being true to who you really are and what you truly want in your thoughts, your actions, and your words.
Sometimes, that looks like discipline. Sometimes it looks like total chaos and doing random shit. Sometimes it looks like you’re super lazy.
But it doesn’t matter. When you do what’s right for you in each moment, you always do the right thing and you’re always on track.
And you never need to discipline yourself.
Oh, and my upcoming book? Is called ‘Unmute Your Life – break free from fear & go for what you REALLY want’. Expected: June 2020.
