Discipline Is Essential To Happiness And Spiritual Success. Do you ever have trouble dealing with temptations well?
The Secret To Successful Discipline Is To Desire Something Positive And Good Far More Than Whatever Bad Tempts You
If you are on a diet, do you really want to trade a few moments of sweetness for hours or even days of misery and disappointment from eating things that make you feel bad?
Do you want to continue carrying extra pounds around for years?
Or do you want to feel fit, healthy and in command of what you eat and drink? Here's how it works...
Never get into an argument or even a discussion with a chocolate cupcake. Don't give bad temptations your time or attention. Instead:
- Immediately Recognize that chocolate cupcake for what it is - a temporary temptation that provides a short, fast feel good and then makes you miserable for a long time.
- Rapidly Reject chocolate cupcake temptations in life and
- Immediately Redirect your attention toward positive goals and ambitions.
- Revel In Doing Well congratulate yourself to Reinforce Your Resolve And Recall of how to deal with temptations positively and powerfully.
- Reward Yourself to Reinforce Your Resolve And Your Recollection of how you want to avoid similar future temptations. Give yourself a big congratulatory hug, admire your strength, do something positive to reinforce your resolve and determination.
Notice we really emphasize lots of positive reinforcement. Don't Beat Yourself Up when you make mistakes, and we all do. Beating Yourself Up Reinforces Errors You Want To Avoid.
Practice walking past the candy or snack foods sections in grocery stores thinking about all those empty calories, all that awful sugar, fat and carbohydrate that will harm your health and make you gain weight.
Rehearse and Reinforce Rejection of Wrongs.
Drive Your Discipline With Desire For Happiness, Good Health And Spiritual Success!
