Self-Discipline is one of those things that we all know we need but that no one likes to talk about or learn about. Sometimes we even shudder at hearing or seeing the word. Perhaps though it's because most people have a skewed sense of what self-discipline really is and what it isn't.
Generally people think, "Self-discipline is doing what you don't want to do when you don't want to do it." In other words we think of self-discipline as a form of punishment. But it's not.
