So, you want to become a disciplined person, right?
If you said “Yes”, that means you currently see yourself, your “identity”, as someone who ISN’T disciplined, correct?
Try to follow me on this. It’s worth it…
The truth is, you don’t actually have a set, permanent “identity”. That’s an illusion that you’ve created.
We’re all just a body with 10 fingers, 10 toes, a head (hopefully), a torso, and the rest.
Everything else that you call your identity is a creation you’ve conjured up based on your:
Feedback (from yourself and others)
First, realize that your MEMORIES are not accurate. Can you remember exactly what you had for lunch last Wednesday?
If not, then how on earth can you think your other memories are accurate? Maybe a few are, but mostly they are so distorted from reality that it’s laughable.
Second, your IMAGINATIONS are just that… imaginary. Enough said.
Third, FEEDBACK from others is opinion, not objective fact.
So, how did all that inaccurate stuff create your current “identity”?
Like I told you a few days ago:
Your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you imagine, and what is real.
So, it took info from your unreliable memory, imagination and non-objective feedback, and said…
“That must be who I am!”
In other words, your current identity was created so randomly that it’s funny…
…except it’s not funny if you aren’t happy with it. As in, if you aren’t a disciplined person.
Get where this is going?
So, if you want to be a disciplined person, the quickest way is to IMAGINE yourself as a disciplined person.
Then, most IMPORTANT of all, TAKE THE ACTIONS OF A DISCIPLINED PERSON.
When you take action, you get a RESULT. That result is FEEDBACK to your brain, telling it that:
“Hey… I did something a disciplined person would do… I MUST BE A DISCIPLINED PERSON”.
Which then causes you to take more action… getting another positive result… and giving you more feedback that you’re a disciplined person, and it keeps looping over and over, growing stronger and stronger.
It’s called a POSITIVE FEEDBACK LOOP, and once you get it going, it becomes unstoppable.
That is how you can control your brain, and not vice-versa.
Now that you know this, it’s time to stop leaving who you are up to chance and random thoughts and memories.
Use it and create the DISCIPLINED, unstoppable person that you want to be.
