#1 A Creed for Self-Discipline

Greetings and Welcome to the next installment of
“Martial Arts for Everyone”

Self-Discipline is an attribute that many people and many martial artists strive for.  It is often more difficult to attain than one thinks.  In this writing I have adapted affirmations for Self-Discipline from one of my mentors Bob Proctor.

I suggest that you take each one of these seven and write them on a card. Have the cards laminated and repeat them out loud and internally every day to develop a new paradigm of self-discipline.

Or you can type all of these onto a sheet of paper, laminate it and tack it up somewhere where you will see and be able to read it everyday. 

“I realize the power of will is Supreme Court over all other departments of my mind, I will exercise it daily when I need the urge to action for any purpose. And I will form habits designed to bring the power of my will into action at least once every day.”

“I realize that my emotions are both positive and negative I will form daily habits which will encourage the development of the positive emotions, and aid me in converting the negative emotions into some form of useful action.”

“I realize that both my positive emotions and my negative emotions may be dangerous if they are not controlled and guided to desirable ends, I will submit all my desires, aims and purposes to my faculty of reason, and I will be guided by it in giving expression to these.”

“I realize the need for sound plans and ideas for the attainment of my desires. I will develop my imagination by calling upon it daily for help in the formation of my plans.”

“I realize that my emotions often err in their over-enthusiasm, and my faculty of reason often is without the warmth of feeling that is necessary to enable me to combine justice with mercy in my judgments.” That is a tricky one. “I will encourage my conscience to guide me as to what is right and what is wrong, but I will never set aside the verdicts it renders, no matter what may be the cost of carrying them out.”

“I realize the value of an alert memory, I will encourage mine to become alert by taking care to impress it clearly with all thoughts I wish to recall, and by associating these thoughts with related subjects which I may call to mind frequently.”

 “I realize the influence of my subconscious mind over my power of will, I shall take care to submit to it a clear and definite picture of my major purpose in life and all minor purposes leading to my major purpose, and I shall keep this picture constantly before my subconscious mind by repeating it daily.”
