Mindful Self-Discipline

Through mindful self-discipline, you enhance your virtues, or personal strengths – such as patience, courage, confidence, and resilience – which you can then use to navigate everyday challenges. These virtues also boost your well-being. Make sure you balance your strengths to prevent them from becoming liabilities:

  • Balance accountability with letting go to prevent being too hard on yourself.
  • Balance self-belief with humility to prevent arrogance or recklessness.
  • Balance perseverance with acceptance to avoid staying with something long after it loses its usefulness.
  • When you develop mindful self-discipline, you give yourself the power to understand your true aspirations and set yourself on a journey to accomplish anything you want to achieve.
