4 Ways To Achieve Self-discipline
Happiness is dependent on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own happiness. It is much easier to do battle with society and with others than to fight our own nature.
We are all entitled to achieve greatness and happiness and the key factor we need to understand is self-discipline. Whether you’re a broker, agent, or investor, the real estate industry revolves around self-discipline.
It may be harder at first, but in order to achieve a significant change in your life, you need to contain and suspend those habits that keep you from growing.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways to achieve self-discipline.
1. Have a clear picture of your goals.
First of all, if you wanted to achieve success in building a well-disciplined life, you need to create a clear picture of your goals in life. These goals are your objectives that will guide your way towards changing yourself.
2. Remove all distractions.
Now that you’ve created your goals, this time you need to make your objectives stronger. This time you need to distance yourself from those things that might cause distractions. For instance, your goal is to secure a multi-million dollar multifamily deal. You should be focusing on that goal alone and not on other things. If need be, you can delegate minor tasks to your staff or to virtual assistants so you can zero in on closing the deal.
3. Let go of your past mistakes
We know that what we’ve done in the past can be a great burden to us, especially those mistakes that keep us from moving on. If you’re going to remember them all, you’ll have a problem with facing new opportunities. Remember, you need to reach your goals, and the only way you can do that is to learn from your mistakes and make the needed improvements.
4. Create fruitful habits.
You want to cement self-discipline in your life. This means you need to acquire habits that are beneficial. Make it a part of your routine to secure your productivity whenever you can. This would involve focusing on habits that have a positive impact on your life. In my case, I make a habit out of talking with my staff, checking emails, and calling property managers to get a view of the situation in their own turf.
