It would make sense to firstly start by revealing how an Assistant Professor of Education, Robert W. Edgar explains Discipline. He considers an admirable person as a disciplined person. He added that no thinking educator could possibly omit disciplined behaviour from his list of desirable personality characteristics. A school in which pupils do not learn to participate in a disciplined life is an unhappy environment, unsatisfactory to teachers and pupils alike. The members of any society -whether a family, a town or city, a school or Church a state or nation-must be disciplined; otherwise, neither the individual nor the group will survive.
HOW CAN DISCIPLINE AND PURPOSE IMPROVE ONE’S FINANCIAL LIFE?
A few ways to practice financial discipline include setting short-term, mid-term, and long-term financial goals, building a budget, paying down debt, opening a high-yield savings account, cutting back on spending, establishing an emergency fund, setting sound investment strategies, and finding a financial planner.
A VISION STATEMENT
Did you know that Practicing Self-Discipline for example having A vision statement in place is what motivates you to reach your goals in life? Lack of self-discipline delays us from accomplishing our vision and failure to implement self-discipline techniques causes us to stray away from our vision. Mrs Carjie Scott. The Education Equalizer, Explains Three types of Self-Discipline as follows: She indicated that There are many ways that we can implement self-discipline practices every day. Here are examples of three types: active discipline, reactive discipline, and proactive discipline.
WHAT IS ACTIVE DISCIPLINE?
Active discipline is doing what you need to in that very moment such as eating a healthy meal, limiting your distractions while studying, and exercising. You were actively disciplined when you chose to eat healthy instead of unhealthily. You were disciplined when you took the time to study and turned your phone off. Another example happened when you decided to exercise instead of watch TV or surf the internet.
WHAT IS REACTIVE DISCIPLINE?
Reactive discipline is controlling your thoughts or behaviours when dealing with unforeseen situations such as getting a flat tire on your way to work, dealing with a rude person, and locking your car keys in your car. Instead of complaining, you used these situations as opportunities to learn. When you got the flat tire, you got the tire fixed. In that moment, you chose to be grateful that it was just a flat tire, and no one was hurt. When dealing with that rude person, you turned the other cheek. You realized that their rudeness was their issue and not yours. You understood that “an eye for an eye” leaves everyone blind. You decided to treat that person with extra kindness because they needed it. You locked your car keys in the car. You said to yourself, “It’s okay, mistakes happen.” You realize the importance of forgiving yourself and moving on. You know that this is just one minor setback during your full 24-hour day.
WHAT PROACTIVE DISCIPLINE?
Proactive discipline is doing things in advance in an effort to better control a situation such as bringing an umbrella on a rainy day, creating a to-do list, and going to bed on time. You watched the news that morning and prepared for the weather. You had goals that you needed to accomplish on a deadline and decided to create a to-do list to prioritize those goals. Instead of staying up late, you decided to go to bed early to wake up on time the next day. Admittedly, it is hard to commit to self-discipline every day. Self-discipline is no easy feat because we are constantly faced with issues that seem to occur at the most bothersome time. It is true that we have no control over what can happen, but we do have control over how we react to what happens. We also have access and opportunity to practice techniques that enable us to exercise self-discipline and reach our vision.
In my concluding summary, I would like to briefly emphasis the purpose of discipline in life. Discipline provides people with rules to live their lives efficiently and effectively. When you have discipline in your life you can make small sacrifices in the present for a better life in the future. Discipline creates habits, habits make routines, and routines become who you are daily. And more importantly you should set a goal and put them where you can see them every day. Remind yourself why you started. Set small goals firstly, avoid setting an enormous goal because it could become overwhelming. Practice prioritizing, know your weaknesses. Get purpose driven friends or a mentor to hold you accountable if necessary.
