The Art of Discipline for Mind Blowing Results

I’m going to drop a bit of a bombshell on you today guys…

There is no such thing as discipline.

There is only love.. Love is the most powerful creative force in the universe. You are the result of what you love the most. You either love ripped, adonis like muscular abs more than ice cream or you love ice cream more than wash board abs you can do your laundry on. It is as simple as that.

Don’t beat yourself up that you have no discipline or further immerse yourself in a mountain of processed carbs because of your guilt. Admit that you like junk food more than you love strength. Or ask yourself, what do you really love?

Self-esteem is the reflection of self-judgment. One of the best ways to increase your self-esteem is to make truly loving choices that will help to improve the strength of both the mind and body. For example, if you truly love yourself, in the gym you will choose to do full squats with a barbell over the leg extension machine. If you truly love yourself, at the restaurant, you’ll pass on the delicious smelling garlic bread, and instead ask for some more limes for your water. Limes alkalise your body which helps your bones, muscles and enhances your body’s ability to deal with stress.

When you are making a difficult choice, ask yourself,  what would a loving knowledgeable expert tell you to do? For example, when training chest at the gym, would a loving strength coach recommend pec deck flys, or full range dumbbell bench press? When choosing dessert next time you’re out for dinner, would the loving nutritionist recommend a bowl of berries or the gluten packed, pro-inflammatory, triple decker brownie immersed under melting vanilla ice cream.

How to Master Discipline:

  1. Accept that every choice you make is a reflection of what you truly love.
  2. Love is the most powerful creative force of the Universe. Use it wisely!
  3. Choose to love yourself more than external things.
  4. Treating yourself well speeds up the growth of self-esteem. When is the is the last time you got a massage?
  5. When people comment on your results and say things like “Wow you must have a lot discipline” answer them “No, I just make loving choices for myself.” Reinforcing your own positive behaviour will help you grow in strength.
  6. Whenever you make a truly loving choice for yourself, say to yourself ‘Thank you for taking care of me in such a loving way”. The more you talk to yourself like a loving child talks to their parent, the quicker you will grow. For example, you’ve just completed a 1 rep max back squat, with a weight you didn’t feel like doing. Say to yourself “Wow! I am impressed with your strength of mind, that’s why you are a champion”. By documenting and rewarding your successes, they will grow in size and prevalence.
  7. The more you believe in yourself, the more you will be able to take the advice of authority figures objectively.
  8. Remember to always “Use your faults, use your defects; then you’re going to be a star.” as French singer Edith Piaf’s motto says.
  9. Always reward behaviour and effort not qualities. For example, if you made a better a choice, and you say to yourself “You are great”. The better approach would be to instead say: “ I am so impressed with your ability to make the right choice out of love for yourself”.

There is an old Hindu saying: “The World is as we are”. So if you are tired of seeing the condition of the world around you? You must first change yourself. Be the change you want to see in world, be what you want to attract more of in your life. Being loving to yourself is the fastest way to enjoy a much more fun and productive life.

Have a great day guys!
