Setting an Intention for the day or even for the week.
When we set an intention for the day, we create a positive focus for the day. We have an aim of how we want our mindset to be, where we want our thoughts to be directed and we create a new habit. Our automatic pilot – well, most of us have an automatic pilot that is set to negative in some way. Setting a daily or weekly intention helps break the automatic negative response to a positive and beautiful way of living.
Today, I would like to suggest “self discipline” as today’s intention. Actually, we can practice Self Discipline for the entire week?
Let us explore what self -discipline is?
It means getting yourself to do what is important, what is necessary, and what needs to be done. Rather than being a leaf on a tree that is blown about by the wind of our thoughts, feelings, laziness, fear ,or whatever we might be feeling that jeopardizes my self discipline.
Self discipline is not loosing control of ourself when we feel angry or hurt. It is being able to stay humble and assertive in a difficult situation. It is being able to know when to speak and when to let go. Self Discipline as allows me to be Royal in my character and my interactions with all.
Affirmation & Application
I have self-discipline. I use my time well and get things done (even the boring chores). I choose my actions with detachment, I don’t get sucked into an argument. I am motivated in all tasks, big or small, interesting or boring. I am Royalty- I walk, talk with grace, and in the face of rudeness – I am not bothered. I live in a clean , tidy home. I keep my home and my living, working spaces clean at all times. As I know cleanliness is discipline and the state of my home impacts my feelings and thoughts. I hang my coats up, I put my shoes away, I put my clothes away, I keep the kitchen and house clean ready for the next day, or next meal. I am disciplined in all aspects of my life, home, work, family, social, self development etc.etc I get things done in an orderly and efficient way. I create routines for myself that I follow. I am detached in actions, so that my emotions don’t control and sabotage my self discipline. I know that discipline creates freedom and order. I live and work in clean tidy places, and I see the positive impact that order, routine, and discipline have on my life, my well being, my happiness, and my thoughts and feelings are less chaotic.
