Discipline isn’t always good.We should make little changes in our life every day.It isn’t only refreshing but also makes you resilient and flexible.
Little changes like eating a new snack,running in a park instead on a treadmill or trying a different colour combination of clothes.
These small surprises make you used to surprises.It will be a great help when you need to adjust in an environment you can’t control.
The difference between us and animals is that animals adapt to their environment unconditionally,while we humans adapt to bring change around us.
Don’t control your fears.
Emotion is a state of mind.You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be sad.
It is true that your environment has a big influence on which and how much of a emotion is triggered within you.But you have the choice to feel or not to feel those emotions.
It is like a two-way switch.The outside world will flick on-off your switch as many times as they want because it is just a plaything for them.They are not going to experience any effect after all.
But you are in control of the master switch inside of you which turns on and off on your volition.If your volition is dominated by that minuscule switch that the world is playing with,then you are at their mercy.You have no control over yourself.You don’t get to choose for you.You have lost your freedom.
Control your switch.Take control it because it is yours.Your emotions are yours to experience when you want them to experience.World is a stimulus not a source of your emotion.
There are two ways to make change possible – in both cases you need to become ‘big’ relative to the task.
Either you grow your knowledge and skill – become an expert at doing something.
Or you shrink the challenge – you divide your goal into smaller individual attainable actions.
Either way,you become more daunting than the task itself.Do not fear the task.Let the task dread you and follow your way instead.
Once you become capable or believe that you have become capable – your chances of succeeding increase significantly.
