Audio On How to Improve Your Self Control and Discipline Contributed by Our Friends at TopThink

In today's episode of 7 Good Minutes, we learn three simple but effective ways to improve your self control and discipline.

We all have moments where we could have used a little more self-control. Whether it's hitting the snooze button one too many times, giving in to a pint of ice cream after a long day, or spending too much money on a shopping spree, we could all benefit from a little more discipline in our lives.

So how can we improve our self-control? Here are four tips to get you started.

1. Set realistic goals.

If your goal is to never eat dessert again or to work out seven days a week, you're setting yourself up for failure from the start. When our goals are unrealistic, we get discouraged when we can't meet them and give up entirely. Instead, set smaller goals that you know you can realistically achieve.

For example, commit to working out three days a week or only having dessert on weekends. Small changes like these are more likely to stick, and as you reach your smaller goals, you'll be motivated to keep going until you've reached your larger goal.

2. Make a plan.

It's one thing to set a goal, but it's another thing entirely to have a plan for how you're going to achieve it. When you're trying to improve your self-control, make sure you have a clear plan for what you need to do each day or each week to inch closer to your goal.

For instance, if your goal is to save money, decide how much you're going to put away each week or month. Having a plan makes it easier to stick to your goals because you know exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it.

3. Remove temptation.

One of the best ways to improve your self-control is to remove any temptations that might lead you astray from your goals. If sweets are your downfall, don't keep them in the house. If you're trying to save money, unsubscribe from any email lists that send you coupons or deals on items you don't need.

By making it harder for yourself to give in to temptation, you'll be more likely to stay on track.

4. Keep track of your progress.

Finally, one of the most motivating things you can do is keep track of your progress as you work toward your goal. Seeing the tangible evidence of how far you've come can help keep you focused and disciplined when times get tough.

So whether it's creating a vision board or simply crossing off each day on the calendar that you've stuck to your plan, find a way to track your progress so you can see just how far you've come and how much further you have left to go.

Improving your self-control doesn't happen overnight it's a process that takes time and effort. But by following these four simple tips, you can start making headway today and see real results in no time.
