Self-discipline is one of the most important qualities of a successful worker. It gives anyone focus, patience and persistence which make success closer to achieve. We all have work. Businessmen, marketers, managers, leaders, employees, teachers and anyone else have their own work to accomplish. But in every job, there are always distractions that hinder us from getting things done. Laziness, procrastination, lose of passion, influence from other people, and lack of patience are only some of those hindrances. Thus, we should learn how to really discipline ourselves at work. If you are having a hard time achieving self-control, here’s the secret to putting yourself into pure discipline.
To have discipline at your work, you need to be a disciple of that work. Who is a disciple? I know you have heard of it. A disciple is a person who actively and faithfully follows someone. Think of Christ’s disciples or the disciples of other religious leaders. Disciples make big sacrifices. Christ’s disciples even sacrificed their families, jobs and lives. But of course, I’m not saying that you sacrifice your life and face death just to have discipline at work. What you need to do is to be faithful to your work and sacrifice the things that hinder such work. Just like the disciples in the Bible, they have shown constant patience, diligence and persistence. Those who became great disciples stood and fought hard for their master.
So what kind of work do you have now? If you are an accountant, you should be a disciple of fair accounting. If you’re a businessman, you should be a disciple of your good business. If you’re a marketer, you should be a disciple of quality marketing. If your job is being a mother or a father, then you should be a disciple of effective parenting. You should stand and fight for your job. You should have a strong hand to hold it. You should sacrifice the things that can destroy it. You should be a faithful servant of your job. But always remember to find a righteous master to serve – find the right job.
