How many times have you said to yourself…
- I wish I could get up earlier
- I want to stop eating junk food
- I wish I could talk to girls
Too bad wishes and wants don't mean anything.
It feels a whole lot better to say I DO instead of I wish. If you want to or wish to wake up earlier then there is one skill you need to cultivate, and that skill is called self-discipline.
You simply discipline yourself into waking up earlier until it becomes a habit. When it becomes a habit, it becomes routine, normal and ordinary.
Self-discipline turns into habit, and habits make life easy
Habits no longer requires self-discipline, they just become part of your daily life. And that's the funny thing about self-discipline…
People think discipline is all about hard-work and sacrifice, but that's just not true. Self-discipline is only hard at the very beginning, when you have none.
But here's the funny thing: Life is so much easier when you exercise self-discipline.
Self-discipline is not the key to making life harder, it's the key to making life better. It's not about “restraint and self-control” or anything like that, it's about making your life better.
You do it so you can feel good everyday, not because it's “hard-work and sacrifice.” You do it because it makes you feel good, more energized, and better prepared for the day.
Self-discipline eventually becomes easy for this easy reason: You feel so damn good when you're in control that you never want to go back to the old ways when you lacked the discipline necessary to feel like a million bucks.
When we implement good habits, which is difficult at first, they become habitual routine and we wonder to ourselves why on earth we ever did things differently.
Self-discipline turns into structure, and structure is the key to success
Self-discipline is really just another way of saying structure. When you structure your day the self-disciplined way is when you accomplish more.
No structure + no routine = no green ($$)
Structure + routine = keys to the green ($$)
Habit and routine are the cornerstone of success. No highly successful man got to the top by mere chance and haphazard, sporadic actions – only though steady habit and daily activities do we cultivate self-mastery and achieve our goals.
Like Conor McGregor said, “For me, structure is key to the billions.”
Forming a habit or routine is a matter of discipline. You've got to have discipline to turn a “want-to” into a daily habit. You've got to turn habits or no habits into good and productive habits.
When we let our bad habits come out, they do us no good. They give us momentary pleasure and lifetime of discomfort.
Self-discipline is the opposite, it gives us a moment of discomfort and a lifetime of pleasure.
Self-discipline turns into success, and success is the greatest form of pleasure
There is never success without discipline and there is never discipline without success. Self-discipline and success go hand in hand.
A lottery winner who wins millions of dollars will alway lose the money if they are not disciplined. A disciplined man with nothing will always turn nothing into something.
When your bad habits bring out the worst in you, the mindset just needs to be pushed in a new direction that will ultimately lead to a new, true and better YOU.
Self-discipline turns into preparation, and preparation turns into confidence
When you look and feel like shit, people treat you like shit. When you look and feel like a million bucks, people treat you like a million bucks.
When you accomplish something you set out to accomplish, self-discipline for example, you develop P R I D E.
A proud man presents his best self to the world every single day, and gets treated the best.
“But it's what's on the inside that counts!”
Your outsides are the best indicators of your insides. As you begin to look and feel better everyday, you will notice how well people respond to you, as well as how it affects your mindset in a positive way.

HOW 30 DAYS OF DISCIPLINE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Many years ago I had no structure, no routine, and no self-discipline. I wanted to be an entrepreneur, I wanted to be in total control of life, finance and body, but I didn't know where to start.
Then a funny thing happened randomly… I started following a few habits of self-discipline bit by bit until I was following 12 habits steadily.
What's the funny thing that happened? I was exercising “extreme self-discipline” but it didn't feel like it. In fact, I felt amazing. I felt awesome.
I was inspired to work hard every day, I had the time to work every day, and I felt like a million bucks every day. I simply said “no” to bad habits and I said “yes” to good habits and my life was never the same since then.
Those 12 habits of success worked so well for me, I put them in a book called 30 Days of Discipline and gave it away on Christmas day (several years ago).
I didn't really think much about it, until the reviews started coming in. They all say the same thing: “30 Days of Discipline changed my life. Thank you!”
Every day for many years now, I get people telling me how much 30DOD changed their life and I agree, because it changed my life so many years ago.
“Not even 24 hours later and I feel like I'm kicking ass. This is a pivotal moment in my life. I can FEEL it. Finding this program, which really feels more like a lifestyle, and INSTANTLY implementing the principles – has already begun the re-wiring process…” – Corry
Have more energy, focus and drive
Every time I have a revival of energy, focus and success it is because I go back to basics, which is exactly what 30 Days of Discipline is – the basics of self-discipline for men. It's the basic training that you put yourself through and emerge from better.
I always knew that if I could change my life by changing a few habits, then other people could do. But I never in a million years thought that so many boys would become men by following the 30DOD program. I knew it worked well, but I didn't know it was such magic.
Once you master your mind, everything else follows. You eliminate bad habits that lead to laziness, sloth and gluttony and you replace those with habits that encourage success.
Habit and routine are the most important prerequisites to accomplishment. Bad, lazy habits lead to a lazy, uneventful, unrewarding life. Simply change the habits to get the rewards.
“Last month I started 30 days of discipline. Honestly it changed my life. Productivity increased, discipline skyrocketed and I really felt like I had control of my life.” – Doug
Develop strength of character, become an even better man
Forcing yourself to do unpleasant things day in and day out requires a strength of character that most people don't have. The good news is you can develop that character. You will build inner strength by pushing through the 30 days.
They like to say people cannot change, but that's not true. You CAN change and become reborn with fire, discipline and get success, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE.
You will become the best version of yourself – you will always be you, so you should always be the best you can be. It’s going to help you become productive and creative and alive with fire, passion and energy.
“I started 30 Days Of Discipline over 4 months ago and it has helped me immensely in my entrepreneurial activities, to become more decisive and of course, the foundation of all achievement, it has helped me with my discipline.” – Russ
Finally accomplish what you need to accomplish
This is why you will become disciplined – so you can ACCOMPLISH what you need to accomplish, and so you can kick the ass that needs to be kicked.
You will do 30 Days of Discipline to light the fire under you to accomplish your one very specific goal. Most who are reading 30 Days of Discipline are not at their desired level of accomplishment.
There is something missing from the lives of the un-disciplined. For some of us it is our own business, our own entrepreneurial effort. For some of us it is more engaging and fulfilling work. For some of us it is success with women. For some of us it is getting into shape.
Whatever it is, it is a desire for something. There is always something that you don’t have but you want… You're going to get things done, you're going to accomplish stuff you've never accomplished before.
“I'm a week into the program and have done more work in the past 3 days than I have in the previous month. I can say without hesitation that I am becoming more self-disciplined.” – Tate
Learn to love Mondays again.
Monday is the start of everything. It will determine the rest of your week. Most people dread Monday because they don't have have the discipline to take care of the things they actually need to take care of.
Before they know it, another Monday happens and they haven't moved closer to any of their fitness, business or women goals. They are going around in a circle.
The disciplined love Mondays because they are taking their challenges on headfirst before most people have even woken up.
When the next Monday arrives, the disciplined winner looks back on his week and sees accomplishment and progression. The disciplined winner then repeats the cycle.
“Two years later I can honestly say that this book had a major impact on me and everything that I do.” – Robert
Become more attractive to women
Let’s assess the situation. Who do you think women find more attractive?
A) Guys who spend their time in the dark, jacking off to endless streams of porn, finishing after about an hour, taking a nap, finally making it out into the sunlight (or not) and can’t even look them in the eye.
B) Guys who don’t spend their time playing with themselves for hours, are full of testosterone, have a deeper voice, and the ability to make eye contact.
Also, it's a real nice feeling when girls start staring at you instead of you staring at them.
“I am one week into the 30 days of discipline and feeling marvelous. Late middle-aged, successful and starting to gain some weight and boredom approaches. Found the challenge with excellent results. I Should have started 30 Days of Discipline long ago. Almost forgot what it was like to feel like an 18 year old paratrooper again. Oh, and others have noticed too!” – Oyaji
The smallest habits make the biggest difference.
People think about the big picture too much, without realizing that changing the small habits through discipline will lead to big positive changes steadily.
30 Days of Discipline will instill 12 small habits that increase productivity, heighten your senses, increase natural testosterone, and just plain make you feel like a million bucks.
At first, it’s going to be tough, it’s going to be rough, it’s going to be hard, and it’s going to be a challenge. It’s also going to be life changing and it's going to open your eyes to the real prize.
After you realize how good you feel when you're in control of yourself, self-discipline becomes easy.
Make your life easier and follow 30 Days of Discipline for 30 days. Then come back here and tell me if I was wrong.
