Daily Intention – Self Discipline

Setting a Daily Intention

When we set an intention for the day or even for the week. 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?

Without Discipline we cannot achieve anything. With discipline we achieve everything we wish to. Without out discipline we are lazy and we procrastinate on a task, and then we get frustrated.

Self Discipline 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 if it a 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.

  1. I have a theory that there is no such thing as a good habit! Certainly not in my life. I have bad habits on the one hand and on the other, I have disciplines that I very consciously pursue every day. They include writing morning pages, prayer time, an exercise routine, keyboard practice and language practice (currently Hindi). Some days I happily do them, but mostly they feel like tasks to accomplish – whilst doing them, I become joyful and afterwards I am joyful and at peace and thank myself for making the effort for another day. If the intention were not set, they wouldn’t be done the ‘fitness’ in each area would diminish and eventually disappear .

    1. Yes one could call these disciplines, routine and when the intention is set they get done. Thank you for sharing your philosophy and I get it, it makes total sense. Maybe I am being simple about this . I believe there is a positive for all negatives. and vice versa. Labeling it habit, discipline is just a way to express into words . Ultimately what leads us to peace and harmony is good and positive, in the most simplest of ways.

  2. There is so much room for improvement for me in the intention of self-discipline. It was good to identify from your post that I am doing good in some ways. I do prioritize a clean clear space in my home and my mind, ready for the next day. I have always been not very fond of routines so that keeps me a bit not sharp and on top of things because I tend to engage in variety of ways. But then I do have somethings that are in my everyday routine. I usually get things done early and never rushing last minute for anything time sensitive. I absolutely loved this sentence of yours – I am Royalty- I walk, talk with grace, and in the face of rudeness – I am not bothered. I truly loved your entire post too.


    1. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful thoughts and reflections and take aways. I am very happy this post gave you so much. I pleased you liked the affirmations. Sometimes I refrain myself from fully sharing such affirmations- I am never quite sure if people will like them. I think it is such a nice way to speak to ourself as it raise our standards naturally. Thank you always for such lovely supportive comments

      1. I feel there is a need for such affirmations, for me certainly because in an attempt to keep humble we train ourselves to not hold ourselves in any high regard. And we are not reminded as enough of our goodness as would be good for us. So reading your affirmation was empowering and supportive for me to feel more graceful through the day.

      2. Yes society trains us into some interesting ways To be humble is beautiful and I feel humility
        is important and I pride myself in that. But, it doesn’t mean that I am a door mat! When we are full of self esteem we are royal, graceful, hold our head up high not with arrogance, or ego, but wisdom, discernment, inner power , humility and a unsaid vibrations of power that says without saying i am humble, I am kind, but think twice !. I don’t know if that makes sense. And then sometimes we have to speak, or distance ourself, or indirectly discuss x to get another to understand. If that makes sense.

        All the best on your journey to inner strength and peace.

      3. Yes I absolutely I understand as I have been in the process of building that exact same from ground up.
        I love this – When we are full of self esteem we are royal, graceful, hold our head up high not with arrogance, or ego, but wisdom, discernment, inner power , humility and a unsaid vibrations of power – I have been growing and writing in this direction a lot lately.

  3. Self-discipline and Intention are indeed great! I’m practicing self- discipline in relation to exercise, and I started to writing how much I’ve done of exercise per day, so I don’t want to be behind, I write in a calendar so it’s easier to see the progress. I need to practice Intention, I’m really losing my focus for other stuff.
