I’m going to help you with that in over the next couple of days to show you some things that I have learned for improving self discipline in certain areas of my life, making learning self discipline easier and in come cases automatic.
But first I want to share with you the three areas of discipline that you must have to create success in your network marketing home based business.
I was reading the book Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t by Jim Collins which you might recall I mentioned in the blog post I wrote a while back about The Hedgehog Concept in your business and he talks about the three key areas of discipline that all of the great companies he investigated had. They hit me as three areas of self discipline that would help us as network marketing home based business owners as well, even though we’re running small independent businesses.
The three areas of self discipline that great businesses have in common are:
- Disciplined People
- Disciplined Thought
- Disciplined Action
When you stop to think about it disciplined people who have disciplined thought, and take disciplined action are the ideal business partners in network marketing.
People who are disciplined and internally motivated; not needing someone to motivate them every second to go work on their businesses. People who are disciplined in their thoughts and don’t let negative thinking get in their way of success. People who look for solutions instead of problems. And people who take disciplined action in their businesses on a consistent basis.
So I encourage you to take a minute and think about these three areas of discipline. How disciplined are you in these areas? Do you need to work on becoming more disciplined in one, two, or all three areas?
Talking about self discipline is one thing but how do we go about developing or learning self discipline in our lives and home based buinesses?
I am SO not perfect in this and constantly practicing being disciplined in all three of these areas, but I’ve been practicing 3 different ways of learning self discipline skills by combining things that I have learned from various book and teachers.
My three step process to developing good business discipline is:
- Developing good habits that create discipline
- Making self discipline a game
- Creating systems and routines to make discipline easier
I’ll go into detail in each of these areas in my future post, as well as share with you some awesome free resources that may help you learn how to develop self discipline for your life and your network marketing home based business so you can reach your goals…so please stay tuned.
