A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a short speech on the topic of the importance of self discipline.
Every single one of us here would have come across the importance of discipline at some point in our lives or the other, how it is important of obeying rules and commands. But, have we ever thought about ‘self-discipline’?
Google defines the term ‘self-discipline’ to be “the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses.” Thus, self-discipline is also to obey rules and commands but not from a position of superiority. It is those imposed by the self.
Self-discipline, in this sense, becomes very important. Before we attempt to even contemplate thinking about controlling our life, controlling how we want it to turn out and its happenings, it is important to control ourselves. Only if we establish control of our own selves can we establish control elsewhere. For this, try meditation and yoga and start simple!
