Self-discipline plays a vital role in student's life and success Self-discipline plays a vital role in student's life and success

Like a house that has good foundations, students need self-discipline to be successful. Self-discipline is the act of disciplining one’s own feeling and behaviour in order to reach a certain goal in life. Self-discipline is not a skill that people acquires in birth but they got it as they trained themselves to it.

How does self-discipline generate academic success?

To succeed, students need to discipline themselves in some point of views. In fact, they have to change all the habits that maybe an obstacle to their success. For instance, students have to learn time management. They can draw a timetable for their studies and all the other extra activities they undertake. As a result, they can automatically know how much time they can spend to review their lessons, to read books and to practice everythingthey have learnt.

Students have to train and discipline themselves to hard work too. They have to change all the unsuccessful habits that led them to failure. Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States and one of the authors of the Declaration of Independence, uttered: “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” This quote can be used to draw students’ attention to train themselves to give their best to their studies. They do not just have to content with what the teachers and professors give them, they have to make a lot of research too.

Students have to discipline themselves to be courageous at all time. They have to make themselves do what they should do, and deal with their fears rather than avoid them. So, for them to succeed, they have to discipline themselves to be courageous and to go beyond their capacities. It is possible to make efforts to face with all the challenges that may come to them.

What benefits can they get from being self-disciplined?

Success will be guaranteed and goal will be reached for self-discipline students. Indeed, they will get more things done than before and even will get things done faster too. Self-discipline will help them acquire greater sense of self-control, self-reliance and personal power. Students will become more self-confident and proud of themselves and they will never have to fear failure and rejection anymore. They will be more persistent in overcoming obstacles until they reach academic success
