Self-Worth, Part Seven: Self-Discipline Sustains Self-Worth

Self-discipline is the ability to continually take responsibility and maintain your integrity through your choices in a sustained way over the long term.

An athlete or a musician demonstrates self-discipline by practicing for thousands of hours even after he or she has already mastered a certain skill. A person demonstrates self-discipline in his or her life by doing what he or she thinks is the right thing to and by taking responsibilities seriously in his or her various roles in life over and over and over again. To do the right thing a few times will help your sense of self-worth a bit, but to make what you consider to be the right choices thousands of times in your lifetime will help strengthen your sense of self-worth exponentially.
