To start, set a time early in the week and develop a routine. That way, you’ll start off strong and understand what needs to be done for the rest of the week. Write down your reasons for self-discipline: What do you hope to achieve? Where do you see yourself? Visualize your success and you’ll be more motivated to reach it.

On your way to achieving your goals, temptation will likely arise. To make sure you don’t give in, plan beforehand for what you’ll say and do when this happens. You should hide any temptations to avoid these situations altogether.
