Blame your amygdala.
This tiny little part of your caveman brain wants to indulge all your current desires and fight or flee every single fear. It lives In The Moment, an on-demand service of soothing or safeguarding your human body.
This part of your brain doesn’t think long-term. Not even medium-term.
If you have a vision for your life that takes more than RightThisMinute to achieve, you’re going to have to find a workaround for your amygdala’s 24/7 monitoring of your immediate desires and discomforts.
That’s where discipline comes in. Many people consider discipline a chore, as if living by rules is too hard.
Hey, we agree wholeheartedly. Living by someone else’s rules is no fun.
But what if you set up your discipline to live by YOUR rules, to achieve YOUR Plan A Life, and to achieve YOUR personal goals?
You know, self-discipline.
Yeah, that’s totally different. And today you’ll learn how to make self-discipline part of your day so you can achieve your Plan A Life.
