Sometimes we aren't productive and we need to discipline ourselves to really get the most productive results. It doesn't matter what your self image, confidence, thoughts, desires are, if you don't have self discipline in some way. It all effects each other, but with out the discipline you won't see results.
I don't believe in "Time Management". I believe in self discipline. Its at the core of it all. So, I was thinking of ways to create self discipline.
I thought to myself, "what can I stop doing, to really evoke the discipline, within me"? I could stop wasting time online. Watching TV. Spending less time with friends. I've done it all before. Its not really healthy to have no play time, but I need to create more self discipline.
I've tried "time management" techniques which never create the discipline I really need.
TV, online, friends, going out, are just some forms of stimulation and they are not a basic survival need.
Then it came to me.
What if I stopped doing something that was a basic human survival need, maybe that could create self discipline within myself? What if I put enough pressure on myself, "gun to head" so to speak.
And I've always been against this idea, but as we evolve our beliefs change.
Its a method not everyone will agree to and some people will be turned off by it.
I'm sure its normal for others here and would like to get your input.
And there was 2 basic needs I was thinking about. I could live with no roof over my head ( i didnt like that one) or I can fast.
Well, because if I can survive by eating just enough to stay alive and still be "some what" healthy , it will be worth it.
If I fast until I get to my goal, it will create the perception of "gun to head" pressure, for me at least. I heard many people fast for spiritual reasons and that it can be a "death" and "rebirth"- so to speak.
I'm not going to starve myself, but do a responsible fasting to really create discipline. Does anyone have recommendations on fasting or a website that recommends a good way to do it?
If I create the illusions im "almost" starving and can't eat like I want to, until my goal is reached, I know it will be the pressure on and make things "exciting".
I figure it takes much discipline to fast, so when I'm done with it (weather I make it or not) i'm sure it will be a good experience?
Who here fasts regularly? What type of fasting do you do?
