When you lack self-discipline, it can bleed into every aspect of your life and prevent you from achieving your goals. You might have difficulty making the right decisions and regulating your emotions and feelings.
On the other hand, working on your self-discipline will enable you to communicate better, become less irritable and reactive, and put better energy into the world.
When you are mindful of your behaviours and can regulate your emotions, you’ll find yourself becoming more proactive, being kinder to others and receiving better energy in return.
How can a life coach help me?
The thing about self-regulation is that it is a finite resource. You can work hard to stay in control, but at some point you become depleted, and that is when you could lash out. Learning effective self-regulation is like becoming stronger physically – it requires training and the right personal coach.
Exercising your self-regulation has the effect of strengthening it over time. Through practice, you can improve self-regulation. You will have a more difficult time exercising self-control on subsequent tasks throughout the day if you devote all of your inner strength to one thing.
I will help you develop ways to spread out your discipline and strengthen your self-regulation so you are less likely to be reactive and have a better, calmer mindset
, even in stressful situations.
How to have more self-respect
“Self-control is the chief element in self-respect, and self-respect is the chief element in courage.” – Athenian historian and general Thucydides
When you fail to exercise restraint, it can lead to long-term issues – such as drug
or alcohol addiction
. You must give up habits that impede you from reaching your goals and develop habits that serve as ladders to help you achieve them. A new habit cannot be built up until you are in control. This begins with self-respect and a genuine desire to be the best possible version of yourself that you can be.
You can only receive guidance from outside sources. You are the only one who can make everything else happen. As your personal coach
, I can offer guidance, awareness and tools to help you develop the self-respect needed to strengthen your ability to self-regulate.
