The power of self-discipline

I took the cold plunge this morning! This is where I learnt the power of self-discipline and doing what needed to be done. The trouble is trying to keep the water temperature down now as the weather is warming up. Four bags of ice later but it didn’t take long to melt, water temp went to 10°c / 50°F.

The cold plunge this morning to develop self-discipline.
Morning Plunge With Added Ice!

I’ve been doing cold plunges every day since the start of 2022 and haven’t missed a day yet. That’s the power of self-discipline. There’s been many mornings where that has been the last thing I’ve wanted to do, jump in cold water! But it’s having the ability to silence that voice inside your head. The voice that’s coming up with every excuse possible not to do it. 

“Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should, when you need to do it whether you feel like it or not.”

Craig Prickett

Keeping It Up

If you’ve committed to doing something, build the discipline to keep doing it. Build the muscle within to quieten the inner voice and just do it regardless of how you feel.  What you’ll find is the days you need to do it the most are the days when you’re looking for every excuse under the sun not to do it

If you can’t be bothered, do it, if you wake up with the attitude of I can’t be arsed, how’s the rest of your day going to go?  Next time when it comes to a situation where you’re talking yourself out of it, maybe its the gym, going for a run or whatever it may be, tell yourself, nope I’m doing it. Today is the day I need to do it the most because I’m  looking for excuses. You can either have results or excuses, but you can’t have both. Think about how you will feel afterwards, the feeling when you’ve done it, the sense of accomplishment and all the endorphins rushing around your body making you feel great.

Go out there and get it done, no more excuses.
