What exactly is the resistance that keeps us from taking charge of our lives and realizing our intentions? As complex and multifaceted as the answer to this query may be, one way or another it all boils down to self-discipline. And from a Self-Coaching perspective, what's self-discipline? It's the ability to willfully endure the transient discomfort of changing who and what you are. You're not born with self-discipline, it's acquired. Like a muscle, you need to develop your self-discipline muscle, one challenge at a time.
