Building Unbreakable Self-Discipline Exercises, Part 2


Discipline becomes a strong issue when it becomes self-discipline. Corporate discipline can be compelled or enforced by rules, policies, and laws. Self-Discipline is self-control, self-restraint, and self-temperance exercised over a matter with a view of achieving a goal. Are you beginning to see where the challenges are coming from? Developing or building self-discipline is one of the biggest challenges people face everywhere, every time, but it’s also one of the most important achievements one can achieve in life, business, career, academics, etc.


In the school of success, self-discipline is a compulsory course.

Please continue from where I stopped last time: Part 1.

  1. Reflect and Refocus Regularly

See, staying true to yourself and staying focused on your goals can be incredibly difficult in our constantly changing world. To help stay on track and develop unbreakable self-control, taking regular moments to reflect and refocus is essential. Reflecting daily on the decisions and choices you make can help ensure that your actions truly align with your values.

When you find yourself straying, take a few moments to refocus on the greater end goal you are striving for, just like recalibrating a compass. Regular reflection and refocusing can clarify where you want to go and keep your head above mental clutter without becoming overwhelmed.

  1. Find Accountability Partners Around You

Accountability partners may not be a frontline or regularly mentioned factor in the success equation, but they are a major ingredient in the school of success. Incorporating accountability partners into your efforts to build unbreakable self-discipline is an effective way to stay motivated and on track toward achieving your goals. Accountability partners provide the necessary reinforcement a person needs when they might be tempted to veer off course. They keep you accountable and provide support when things get tough. Selecting the right accountability partner(s) can make all the difference to your world. Pick like-minded individuals who can challenge and inspire you to reach greater heights and will stay the course with you even during the most difficult times.

Knowing that somebody is counting on you to stick with a plan can create just enough pressure for you to push through to stay disciplined and maintain self-control.

  1. Practice Positive Self-Talk (affirmation).

Another exercise is positive self-talk—talking to yourself with kind and encouraging words. Over time, this helps to reassure you that you are capable of reaching the goals you set for yourself, even when the going gets tough. It’s also important that the language is framed in the gracious affirmative rather than the negative, as eliminating denial-laden phrases will help motivate better performance.

Most importantly, it allows for self-affirmation and confidence, improving emotional control, and allowing you to make decisions based on your values rather than emotions. Try talking to yourself like a good friend would—supportive and encouraging; in time, it can become an immensely powerful tool in journeying toward personal excellence. Are you getting it?

  1. Practice Physical Exercises Regularly

Regular physical activity or exercise is an important part of building unbreakable self-discipline and self-control. Incorporating body/physical exercise into your daily routine can help give you the discipline and mental strength to make smart decisions in challenging situations.

Physical exercise releases endorphins that improve mood and reduce stress, making it easier to stick with a lasting plan for self-improvement. Plus, working out regularly requires consistent effort and dedication over time—an essential element of personal growth and mastery of your self-discipline. Even small physical activities like taking a walk or stretching can provide a great start toward developing strong willpower.

  1. Implement Consistency Techniques

Incorporating consistency techniques into your daily life can help build unbreakable self-discipline and transform you into the person you have always desired to be. Start by setting realistic, attainable goals for yourself and breaking those goals down into tasks that are achievable over time. Celebrate each small task achieved, and slowly but surely, your willpower will be strengthened as any doubt of success slowly fades away.

Developing an organized, efficient routine (such as exercise, daily affirmations, and a proper sleep schedule) can help motivate you toward your goals and bring balance to all aspects of life. Self-discipline doesn’t come easily, but following a few steps of consistency can be the spark to gain mental self-discipline.

  1. Reward and Celebrate Yourself

Building self-discipline and unbreakable self-control does not have to be a demanding task. You can make progress while having fun! One way to do this is by setting goals for yourself and rewarding yourself when you reach them.

For example, if one of your goals is to give up coffee, you could reward yourself with a nice bubble bath or movie night after going a full week without drinking coffee. Celebrate you. Making achieving these small successes enjoyable will invigorate your drive and inspire personal growth by providing much-needed motivation.


The development of unbreakable self-discipline is a process that requires dedication and effort, but the results are well worth it. By following simple steps such as meditation, positive thinking, exercising regularly, consistency techniques, rewarding yourself, and reflecting and refocusing regularly, you can develop greater control over your decisions and actions. With determination and focus, you can be the master of your self-discipline and reap the rewards that come with it.

Building unbreakable self-discipline is a journey within yourself, but one that will eventually turn into a rewarding path to personal excellence. Take these steps today to start building the strength of your willpower.
