Discipline, a tool for better living

Discipline is key to success in just about anything you do in life.  Now there will be serendipitous successes, however in the larger picture a person must be disciplined to achieve anything of greatness.  Think back through your life and notice the big successes.  Did they take planning and fortitude to complete?

Building a career, a house, completing a gender transition, making a move to a different country, etc. all take discipline, because they are major undertakings.  Even small tasks such as cooking dinner or washing laundry benefit from forethought and planning.  We have all tried to do things without planning and ended up doing the task over and over before it was done correctly.  Research pays off!

Thought, word, action is the process in any transition. First you visualize the goal or the end product and then you write down a plan and/or discuss the plan with someone you respect and trust.  Once the vision has been created and the process is firm within your mind and those helping, action is the next step.  It is important to believe in yourself and actually take action or it will simply be a pipe dream.  Un-acted on dreams tend to morph into resentment and become destructive, so this brings us back to discipline.

Building discipline takes time and effort, but with determination and the power of intention there is nothing you cannot achieve.  Martial arts are a good way to practice discipline as is any sport.  Arts and crafts are also a way to build discipline.  Any activity that requires repeated practice to perfect is an exercise in discipline.  Little do you realize learning an instrument or foreign language is actually building a skill that serves in many ways.

When you are faced with a major transition the discipline you developed in our younger years will pay off in spades!  This is the point behind 12+ years of school, years of sports, or music lessons.  It all leads up to greater consciousness.  This is what education is all about anyway, growth of the soul, and spiritual consciousness.

Discipline is a tool used on the path, the better your discipline the stronger the growth.  So don’t get caught up in the details and the seemingly menial tasks along the way.  Discipline develops over time and when used consciously it empowers you to manifest all your dreams!

Will Power

The senses of the mind are tools for us to use in Transition.  How effectively you use these 6 tools will determine how successful your transition is.   Take will power for instance.  Your ability to use self-control, or discipline is immensely valuable in transition.  How well are you staying focused on your dream or goals?  Are you determined in your actions? 

Transition involves changing from one state of mind or being to another and this requires intense will power and self-discipline.  In order to stay focused on your dreams and desires a certain inner conviction must be reached.  It is like making an agreement with your-self or setting an intention.  Let’s say that you desire to lose weight and present your physical form in a certain way. 

Your beliefs are the most important factor in this endeavor, and these include your self-image and how you feel about yourself.  I love myself and therefor I am willing to exercise, eat healthy foods and only eat when I am hungry.  I will maintain my perfect vision of the physical form I wish to present.  “I WILL” This statement in itself is setting that intention and sealing the agreement with yourself or higher self.  It is a re-alignment of your thoughts to that which you desire!  Instead of focusing on the illusion of the present situation, you are focused on the reality of your desired results.  There is a certain feeling you get when you attain this goal, use the power of imagination and will to reach this feeling now.  Hold onto this feeling and use it as your guiding light. 

Will power is an inner guidance you use consciously to motivate yourself based on your inner convictions and goals.  Go deep within your heart and feel your desires.  Get in touch with these inner convictions and goals so that you can use your will power to stay focused and attain these goals easily.  Once you become clear on your goals or inner purpose, and use your will power to stay focused, it becomes a habit.  You become the person you desire to be!  You have transitioned.
