This is an excerpt from Chapter One of my new book being published in August of 2009 entitled, “G.U.T.S. – Gearing Up To Succeed”.

Most people (and dictionaries) would define self-discipline as self-mastery or self control, to which I heartily disagree. I’ve also heard it said  self-discipline is the regulation of oneself for the sake of improvement.  Here, I will take issue with these definitions because they define the subject from the perspective which the idea of self-discipline is inextricably tied to that of improvement.  It is my contention that self-discipline is better defined by saying it is the inherent power within a person to speak or to act out of habituation with no regard to improvement or to detriment.

Seneca rightly said, “There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”  It follows then, by polarizing the meaning of self-discipline toward improvement only the idea of an antithesis to self-discipline; namely indiscipline is thus created.  I contend there is no such quality as indiscipline existent in mankind or in all the earth.  Being alone, there is only discipline, for all mankind employs it in their daily habits.  Is it not true that even those who society or culture label as ‘undisciplined’ are rather very disciplined in those things considered by themselves and others to be to their detriment?  For discipline is neither good or bad.  Discipline is an inherent power each of us possesses and one that no man nor even God Himself can take away except through the finality of death itself.  Discipline is God’s gift to each of us so that through its power working inherently within us we might explore the boundaries of our own personal potential.  The focus then of our development of self is not first discipline and then all other virtues, but re-focusing that inherent power (that is, discipline) to the reshaping of our habits in the pursuit of these virtues.   It is with habit that we will begin our investigation of this much sought after quality of discipline and reveal that the power which you have been seeking is already employed in every area of your life, though probably misemployed.  What follows naturally then is it is not self-discipline one should seek after, but rather one should seek after habituation that is in line with stated or intended purposes.

Dig deep; the water – goodness – is down there.  And as long as you keep digging, it will keep bubbling up.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

There are no good or bad habits.  There are only habits.  Contrary to popular belief, what causes people to label habits as good or bad is not determined by the action (habit) itself but by the stated purpose of the individual in relation to the action (habit).  For example, if I have stated my desire or intended purpose to retire by the age of 65 with a net worth of $1,000,000 yet I habitually spend what I earn and save nothing or very little, conventional thinking labels me as undisciplined with regard to financial matters, yet the reality is that I have become very disciplined in spending what I earn and saving nothing.  The distinction here is made because my habits are at odds with my stated purpose.  It is not the action of spending that is good or bad, for all mankind spends what they earn, albeit in different amounts.  It is the root habit, misaligned with my purpose, that drives me to employ my self-discipline in a wrong direction.  The reality is, I am very disciplined in spending what I earn but my discipline is misemployed and thus works against my stated or intended purpose.  It follows then that I am not undisciplined, but I am rather misdirected through unaligned habits.  It is the faculty of habit that we must seek after, not this elusive idea of gaining more self-discipline which has beguiled mankind for ages.  There is no such thing – it is a myth.  What one may label as an increase in self-discipline is really a realignment of our actions by changing a certain habit or combination of habits.  As such, self-discipline is again revealed to be inherent with no effort to attain more.

Once I made the distinction in my mind that I was not undisciplined  at all, but in fact very disciplined, but in the wrong habits in relation to where I wanted to be, my life’s results and environment began to change.  I had only to change my habits and it followed that my life would soon change as well.

When it comes to leadership roles does gender play an influence

When it comes to leadership roles does gender play an influence? Is there a difference between women leaders and men who have been appointed leadership positions? If so, what are the unique qualities of female leadership that the most effective women leaders possess, and are they unique only to women? What role if any can gender play in a world that is predominately influenced by men?

In 2008, a two-year study conducted by a California based management consulting firm identified many characteristics that separate women leaders from men when it comes to qualities of leadership ability and influence in prominent roles.

Women leaders are more assertive and persuasive, have a stronger need to get things done and are more willing to take risks than male leaders. Women leaders were also found to be more empathetic, rational and flexible, as well as stronger communicators in interpersonal skills than their male counterparts, enabling them to read situations accurately and take information in from all sides without prejudice and outside influence.

These women leaders are able to bring others around to their point of view because they genuinely understand and care about where others are coming from so that the people they are leading feel more understood, supported, valued and ever so appreciated. They tend to be more sympathetic to ones needs and view all angles before concluding to ones opinion and personal gain.

The study findings are summarized into four statements about women’s leadership qualities:

Women leaders seem to be persuasive than their male counterparts. 

When feeling the pressure of rejection, women leaders learn from adversity and carry on with a “We will accomplish our task on hand attitude”.

Women leaders demonstrate an inclusive, team-building leadership style of problem solving, methodical approach and decision making. 

Women leaders are more likely to ignore rules and take risks. They are more likely to possess the out of the box thinking.

This evidence that the leadership style of women is not simply unique but possibly at odds with what men practice; it begs the question: Do these qualities have value in the marketplace? Is this type of leadership welcomed by society and by the public and private sector in today’s ever so competitive business world?

Dr. Sran CEO of the Engineered Income Group says attitudes toward leadership influence is changing, and what women offer is essential in today’s ever changing, pressure filled business world. Dr. Sran further states that the changing of the “Guard” is slowly but surely being accepted by society.

A one sided debate will not accomplish much states Dr. Sran; we live in a world filled with personal theories and opinions that many times comes without logical reasoning.

Domination and just pure charisma as a leadership style is becoming less and less popular. There is a new growing appreciation of those traits that women use to keep families together and to organize volunteers to unite and make change in the shared life of families and communities alike. These newly admired and appreciated leadership qualities of shared, equal leadership; nurturance and doing justice for others. We need to make a difference in the world states Dr. Sran. A feminine way of leading includes helping the world to understand and be principled about values that really matter in a world filled of quick decisions without proper thought and rationalization. 

Just as one’s opinion on the article above will differ, whether you’re a man or woman.

The power within

The Power Within

The phrase you ‘create your own reality’ is something that many new age folks talk about, but what does it really mean, and how does it apply to you? ‘Creating your own reality’ is your perception of how you view your world, how you interact with your world, and how you interact with yourself and others. Perception is not limited to visually seeing something, it is not limited to your thought processes, and it is not limited to your emotions. Perception is all encompassing. What you communicate and the energy you give off based on your beliefs, your emotions, and your behaviors determines what kind of life experiences you have. Your perception of your reality is literally a mirror. At any given moment, your external world and behaviors perfectly mirror your inner consciousness.

When you get right down to it, there is no one more strong or more in control of you than you. As a society we have been practicing, preaching, and implementing these philosophies for an incredibly long time. The challenge is we often forget and then fail to implement. It is impossible to feel badly about yourself without thinking badly about yourself. The only thing that can keep you from enjoying everything you were meant to be and do is thought. Simple but powerful thought. Thinking is an awesome capability, and it can be used either as a tool or a weapon against ourselves.

A lot of people might say their lives or businesses aren’t functioning very well but they can’t identify what is wrong. The root cause of the problem is usually our own thought process. If you fall into this category, here is a suggestion. Buy a notebook that can fit into your briefcase, jacket, purse, whatever is convenient but easily and frequently accessible. For thirty days jot down every single thought you have had about yourself-expressed or unexpressed. At the end of the month, read what you have jotted down and I guarantee you will be inspired to change. By completing this exercise, you will see your negative thoughts fall into specific categories and these identified categories will become the focused areas in which you can commit to improve. After those categories have been identified, there is a proven process that can help you define and select the best solutions and action steps.

Do you know what the number 1440 represents? 1440 represents the number of minutes in a given day. This is the number of opportunities we have to create a positive, productive, and goal-oriented reality or a negative reality. Affirmations are a positive tool to help reinforce a positive reality and many people committed to affirmations typically read or say them 2/3 times a day for about 5 minutes. That equates to about 15 minutes of purposeful and positive input into your brain. How are you managing the remaining 1425 minutes in your day? How are you guaranteeing you are reflecting the positive? Your own mental space can be a castle or a cage, and you have the power to decide which it will be.

As you build your mental castle watch out for cages imposed by allowing other people’s agendas and issues in to your life. We attract this “stuff” into our lives every day. While we certainly learn from other people’s “stuff,” when we get deeply involved with another person’s agenda or issue watch out. It can become very easy for us to adopt and claim another individuals “stuff” for our own. Your mind is the place where you store your success oriented attitudes and corresponding behaviors. Your meaning of life, your purpose, and your success are based on those thoughts. When you have to move or expand your mind to input more good “stuff” that is a good thing. Protect your good “stuff” and don’t let anyone tell you you are off purpose or that your stuff is not the right stuff! Your mind is a place to store all your stuff, but the question really is do you have the right stuff stored? The point being is that your stuff, your attitude, and behaviors, need to always be yours. We achieve more results when we are paying attention to our own stuff! If we let others’ stuff get in the way we hinder our results personally and professionally.

Create within your mind your reality and the reflection you want to see. Believe in yourself. Believe in your ability and business acumen. You have value. You have a set of experiences that no one else has. Have confidence in yourself and commit to be the best you can be!
