How To Master The Art of Discipline

disciplineDiscipline has gotten a bad rap as a word.  

We hear that word, and it paints a picture of push-ups, crunches, saying no to dessert, dusting furniture, mowing the lawn, and so many more things.  For sure, those things require discipline, but I want to give the word discipline a break and give it some credit.

There are lots of things in our lives that require discipline.  Many of them are positive and yield positive results.  For example, what if we disciplined ourselves to use positive imagery to displace negative thoughts in our heads?  We can discipline ourselves to take 30 minutes every day to do something that fuels our passion.  We can discipline ourselves to see the unique light that each person contributes to the world.

You get the point.

So, how do we incorporate discipline into our lives to promote growth and forward movement?  Here are three ideas for how to adopt discipline once and for all:

  1. First, commit to a vision that is the result of discipline.  Thoroughly imagine what discipline can create in your life for you.  Whether it’s less anxiety, less guilt, less loneliness, more friends, more money, more free time, or even more alone time, spell it out and give it a name.  Once it has a name, you can step backwards and identify the steps you’re going to take to achieve it.
  2. Second, give yourself reminders that reinforce the discipline(s) you’re engaging to realize that vision.  It can be Uncle Billy’s strings around your fingers (It’s a Wonderful Life reference).  It can be a mantra or song that resonates in your head all day.  It can be email reminders to ping you throughout your day.  Maybe it’s even a list of your power words (that you’ll use to combat limiting beliefs as they pop into your head) that you post on your fridge or dashboard.  Whatever’s going to get into your head, identify it and get going!
  3. Finally, reward yourself.  Discipline (like happiness) is a journey.  Over and over again, it takes you to destinations and allows you to enjoy the exhilaration of success.  Celebrate the milestones (big and small) that are the result of your discipline.  Go ahead!  Pat yourself on the back and lay claim to your success.  It’s yours, and you earned it with your close friend Discipline.

Bonus!  To quote my shampoo bottle, Wash.  Rinse.  Repeat.  Do it again and again and again and again.  It’s a little addictive…

However you adopt discipline, I hope you’ll share your joy with others and encourage them to do the same.  Tomorrow Begins Today.

    home for dungeon play. She’s quite good at having hardcore BDSM fun with bondage,
    rough sex, spanking, slapping tits, biting nipples, smacking, flogging, deep penetration, constant orgasms and more sex toys.

    cock rings A loofah is a good thing. They have some nice stuff.
    It’s best to have them lanced by a docotr, otherwise you might get infections from the broken skin if you try to
    pull out the hairs yourself. It does not sink into the skin quickly,
    which allows for a relaxing massage without repeatedly reapplying.
    After it is all rubbed in, it does not leave the skin greasy or oily.

    It leaves the skin feeling silky and smooth.. It was so cold that
    if you were stupid enough to go outside your eyes
    would automatically blink a thousand times all by themselves, probably so
    the juice inside of them wouldn’t freeze up. It was so cold that if you spit, the slob would be an ice cube before it hit the ground.

    butt plugs It’d be possible to elevate the person’s feet for a “feet on shoulders”
    type of position that leaves the butt and vagina open for penetration. The backstrap can be ignored and the person’s upper body
    can be rested on the floor while the butt is supported for great g spot access during penetration.
    The butt straps and the feet straps can be ignored while
    your partner holds up your hips for some
    “help” doing this position while the strap holds up your back.

    dildos If I move it she in some pain. I read somewhere that it
    would likely be better to work her up to it and perhaps just
    being able to finger her with 1 2 fingers before having sex would be beneficial.
    Or we should just get over it quickly and painfully for her?

    Honestly I don know what better, all these somewhat painful sessions of trying
    to even finger her (been trying for a couple of times already) for God
    knows how long or the quick way. dildos

    cheap sex toys As I said previously, the controller feels like it is made of inexpensive
    plastic, but since you will not really be playing with that much, it is
    not a huge concern. The only other thing I would change with the controller is the
    direction in which you push the switch up or down to
    increase the intensity of the vibrations. Being
    that I am right handed, the bullet of course is in my right hand while the control is
    in my left. cheap sex toys

    However, as long as the condom did not break or come off, you can assume it’s job (plus, you combined a condom with withdrawl,
    which decreases the chances of pregnancy further). It sounds like you know you’re not ready for sex at this level.

    vibrators It’s more than that, though; in two weeks, I’m taking a solo vacation to Hawaii,
    and I am thrilled at the prospect of having whole days of sunshine and freedom.
    The idea of having someone by my side sounds less like
    a vacation and more like a burden. I don’t think it will always be
    that way, but I’m starting to realize that I
    enjoy spending time alone. Mr. Trump called Mr. Jones on Wednesday to congratulate him, but he also sought to justify himself.

    a ton about my wife going 70’s style, and asked her to go wild at least for a little bit.

    The Mesh and Lace bustier is a gorgeous bustier with complimenting colors and beautiful lace trim.

    While it is beautiful, it isn’t really much of a bustier.
    It does have a good breast support, but it doesn’t cinch and shape the midriff like a bustier should.
