    • and Persistence.

    • It bestows the ability to overcomes laziness, temptations and negative habits, and to carry out actions, even if they require effort, are unpleasant and tedious or are contrary to one's habits
  • 18. Hard work
    • Hard work is that which challenges you.
    • Being healthy is hard work.
    • Finding and maintaining a successful relationship is hard work.
    • Raising kids is hard work.
    • Getting organized is hard work.
    • Setting goals, making plans to achieve them, and staying on track is hard work.
  • 19. Industry
    • Industry is working hard but on time.
    • “ In contrast to hard work, being industrious doesn’t necessarily mean doing work that’s challenging or difficult. It simply means putting in the time. You can be industrious doing easy work or hard work.”
  • 20. Persistence
    • Persistence is the ability to maintain action regardless of your feelings.
    • When you work on any big goal, your motivation will wax and wane like waves hitting the shore. Sometimes you’ll feel motivated; sometimes you won’t. But it’s not your motivation that will produce results — it’s your action.
    • Persistence allows you to keep taking action even when you don’t feel motivated to do so, and therefore you keep accumulating results.

    • 2) It is more important to do than to do well.
    • 3) Divide large tasks into smaller ones.
    • 4) Analyze what you did correctly and what you did incorrectly.
    • 5) Reward yourself for what you did right and penalize yourself for what you did wrong.
  • 23. 8 ways to develop Self Discipline
    • Take responsibility. Realise the fact effort is needed to achieve any task. Nothing done means nothing achieved.
    • 2. Acknowledge that you will tend to resist change. Expect to heat the silent whisper of procrastination and laziness. Persist to accomplish your task anyway.
    • 3. Visualize completing the task.
    • 4. Act. Just do it.
    • 5. Remember your accomplishment. Keep a journal of all your successes and read it often. The more joy you get in finishing projects or task the more you will be motivated in your next endeavor.
  • 24.
    • 6. Change your focus. Do not focus on the effort but focus on the pleasure you get finishing something that you started.
    • 7. Be firm. Remember that the world will be easy on those who are hard on themselves.
    • 8. Seek to do things that you avoid. This keeps you nimble and develops the habit of doing what is good rather than what feels good.
    • Successful people are people who have the self discipline to do things that others avoid.
