Episode #137: Mastering Self-Discipline: Part 1 The real reason why you're not disciplined


About the Episode:

Do you need to be more self-disciplined?
What would be different for you if you were more disciplined?

If you're like many of my students, you may think that if you were just more disciplined then you could achieve [insert ideal state here].

However, in working together, my students are always surprised to learn the real reason behind their discipline problems.

Sneak peak: It has little to do with lack of will, and a lot to do with the old school, outdated, patriarchal way of thinking about self-discipline.

So, in the spirit of January, new beginnings, and a time of the year of high inspiration and motivation, I'm creating a four part series on mastering self-discipline, and using the science of self-discipline to get more done.

Starting with Part 1, where we get super clear on the real reasons why you're not more disciplined.

Once we clear this up, then we jump into all of the science behind self-discipline, and how to use the science of self-discipline and human motivation to really start getting more done in your day, so that you start getting more done in less time, and live a life of purpose without stress and burnout.
