Have you ever struggled to be disciplined?
Have you ever struggled to follow through?
Have you ever struggled to stick to the plan?
Have you ever struggled to take the uncomfortable action?
ME TOO. ALL THE TIME. IT´S HUMAN.
Recently I have been following a simple process each time I find it difficult to stay disciplined.
1. I stop being hard on myself or judging myself for not following through.
2. I show myself extra compassion, love and kindness.
3. Instead of being harder and creating stricter systems, I reconnect with my INSPIRATION. Why did I commit to this thing in the first place? What´s the possibility I am trying to create in my life?
4. I take INSPIRED ACTION. It´s not always sexy or comfortable, but it´s aligned with what I really want.
I see now for myself that INSPIRATION is a much better motivator than discipline. I find it easy to have an exceptional work ethic and discipline when I genuinely care about or have an interest in something I am creating.

Where in your life do you lack more discipline and consistency?
What would change if you stopped being so hard on yourself?
