Answer by A Quora admin:
Self Discipline : The only skill you require to master any other skills or habits.
I always see people cribbing around saying that they are not that smart or strong to achieve what they want in life. The fact is that with self discipline and perseverance you can acquire any skill .
We all make resolutions throughout the year. Some of us want to get fit and go for a run at 5:00 in the morning while others want to get good at public speaking and networking. The only thing stopping us from completing all these resolutions is ourselves. An inner voice within us stops us from waking up early in the morning or meeting new people. If we have proper self discipline we can suppress this voice and live a life that is defined by our own rules.
I know it is very hard to master self discipline. But if you start today and take small steps you can have the ultimate power to control your mind and body.
