Bob Proctor explains ONE idea that if you turn to habit, will change your world forever. Napoleon Hill wrote an entire chapter on this one idea in his book, ‘Think And Grow Rich.’ It is such a powerful concept!
Ray Stanford, Bob’s first mentor, told him something critical during one of the first conversations they ever had. He said, “You need only one quality to succeed. You must have discipline.”
Discipline is the ability to give yourself a command and then follow it. You will never develop anything of any consequence if you are not disciplined. However, if you are disciplined, you can have anything you seriously want.
This is so basic, it’s so simple, yet it’s so misunderstood. People who make it in life, whether that’s becoming really rich, running a successful business or living life on their own terms, have all developed the skill of self-discipline.
However, a common misconception about successful people is that they like doing all the things they do.
That is utterly false.
Successful people dislike the same things you do, but they do them anyway. They get up early. They make sure they’re in front of a prospect every morning at 9:00 a.m. They practice or study while others are watching TV.
Why do they do things they dislike? Because they know that’s the price they have to pay for success. And so they discipline themselves to do the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.
Bob and Doug are very disciplined. They don’t care if anybody else is working. They don’t care what anyone else is doing. They know what they have to do, and they get it done. Not everyone is born a naturally disciplined. So don’t worry if you currently lack discipline. It’s something you can develop with practice, and the more you practice, the better you’ll become at it.
Here are three things you can do to get started:
1. Realize that if you want something different in life, you’re going to have to do things differently. Then, command yourself to do what you know has to be done.
2. Begin scheduling your day—from the time you get up until the time you go to bed. If you have a schedule, you’re more apt to do more of the things you really need to do to get where you want to go.
3. Hold the image of being successful at what you want to do. Envision a complete shift. And proceed to let that vision unfold every day. It won’t be easy at first; however, you’ll get stronger and stronger. And then you’ll be able to do what you want, instead of just what you think you can do.
