Issue #89 – Monday, November 27, 2017

Does your “inner drive” take a vacation over the holidays?

It happens to a lot of people, especially with all those leftovers lying around, just begging to be gorged on while you’re binge-watching Game of Thrones.

So I’ve invited my good friend, author, publisher and founder of Learning Strategies, Pete Bissonette, to contribute to this special issue of Mind Power, in which he shares…

...his secrets on self-discipline and maximizing your inner drive for success.

Pete and I have been “joint venture” partners for 21 years because we believe so strongly in each other’s missions in life. Please read his feature story below, “Hardwire Your Inner Drive for Success”.

He has a powerful message to share that will help you off the couch and into the life of your dreams.

Be well.
Bill Harris, Founder/CEO

Hardwire your Inner Drive for Success

By Pete Bissonette
Author, Publisher & Founder of Learning Strategies

People attribute success to many things, but most achievements boil down to a key attribute: self-discipline.

Whether one has it in spades or finds it difficult to muster…

...self-discipline can determine life outcomes as diverse as educational attainment, state of health, and criminal behavior.

It can even be measured in early childhood. A New Zealand study that tracked 1,000 people from birth to age 32 found childhood self-control predicted physical health, personal finances, and criminal behavior.

Children with poor self-control were much more likely in adulthood to experience drug and substance abuse, struggle financially, and commit more crimes, reported the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Those outcomes even accounted for differences in socio-economic status and intelligence…

...said lead researcher Terrie E. Moffitt, of Duke University.

Perhaps you heard of the intriguing Stanford University “marshmallow” experiment on deferred gratification by psychologist Walter Mischel. In the study, children were each offered a marshmallow and were promised that if they could resist eating it, they would get two marshmallows instead of one.

In adolescence, those children who had the self-discipline to delay gratification longer were described as significantly more competent. A few years later, that ability to delay gratification translated into higher SAT scores.

The good news is that self-discipline that can be learned.

It’s not a grim determination to correct weaknesses, nor is it a matter of plowing through difficult tasks with unbelievable willpower. True self-discipline is actually powerful, playful, and consistent with a healthy life.

You can increase your odds of success simply by understanding what makes you tick.

The next time you engage in a difficult work project, a physical workout, or routine household chore, consciously observe yourself for clues to your resources and strengths.

Notice especially instances when self-discipline flows for you.

Ask yourself these questions from our Self-Discipline Paraliminal learning program created by Paul R. Scheele, Ph.D.:

  • What time of day is self-discipline easiest for me?

  • What locations and environments nourish my self-discipline? What level of distraction strengthens my focus and practice? Is my self-discipline enhanced by silence and solitude? By a certain kind of music? By a certain level of hustle and bustle around me?

  • Who energizes my self-discipline? This could be anyone you connect with in your daily life such as a friend, mentor, or trainer. Or it might be someone whose success story you admire.

  • Finally, ask yourself, “How can I make these things part of my days more often?”

Being self-disciplined does not have to be difficult or taxing. True self-discipline flows naturally from the strength of your clear purpose…

...and living in alignment with your values.
