Disciplines You Must Develop to Achieve Remarkable Results – Part 6

When you do an activity consistently, its effects accumulate over time. For example, if you eat an apple every day, it means that, at the end of the year, you’ve eaten 365 apples—and gotten the health benefit from that habit.

Taken in isolation, eating one apple doesn’t seem like much. But when you repeat that “activity” every day, you reap the benefits; each day, the effects accumulate.

Likewise, if you eat candy every day, you also reap a result over time—but not a result you want.

Habits are powerful; their effect accumulates over time.

People who achieve remarkable results are incredibly disciplined in their habits—specifically, habits related to their goals. In fact, their habits support their goals. Thus, they move forward fast and consistently, which enables them to achieve remarkable results.

To be clear, it’s not that they don’t have any bad habits. In fact, they do. However, they keep those bad habits in check; they know that, if they don’t minimize the impact of those habits, those habits will ultimately cause their downfall.

The activities you repeat regularly—i.e., your habit—are producing results in your life. But are these the results you want?

If you look closely at your current results (good or bad), you most likely can trace them back to your habits. For example, if you’re overweight, you can most likely trace that back to your eating habits.

Habits affect results. To achieve remarkable results, you must discipline your habits.

What habits must you develop to achieve your desired result? On the flip side, what habits must you eliminate or mitigate?

Once you answer these questions, you must discipline yourself to follow through.

The discipline of mastering your habits is an extension of the discipline of taking action, which I have covered in a previous post. Moreover, the various disciplines I touch on in this series all work together.

Here are the disciplines you’re learned so far:

These disciplines must be taken as a whole; they’re all necessary to achieve remarkable results.
