Self-discipline. What does that mean to you?
The dictionary defines self-discipline as the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses; the ability to pursue what one thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it.
The irony is most people have no problem doing things they feel like doing. The real issue is doing the things they’re supposed to do when they don’t feel like doing it.
Over the past couple of months I have written several blogs and posted numerous messages on Instagram in hopes of inspiring my readers to become more financially literate.
I’m changing the strategy with this post to give you a bit of insight into my life as well as my struggle with self-discipline (it is a struggle even on the best days!) so that you might be inspired to modify some of your own behaviours – especially when it comes to financial self-discipline!
When I started Savvy Saver Solutions in January 2018, I had to be very self-disciplined to keep it going with new content. I work full time, have a super active toddler, and at the time was almost 9 months pregnant. In addition to my already busy and full schedule, I’m studying to obtain a professional designation.
How do I do it all? Self-discipline.
Self-discipline with Our Finances
Self-discipline is one of the most important traits needed to accomplish goals. Do you have savings goals? Have you been putting off creating that budget in favour of going out (#yolo-mentality) and over-spending now because you’ll just plan to make up for it by ‘saving later’??
Stop procrastinating and abandon that temptation to do something else and focus on your financial goals.
