Self-discipline is exercising control according to what you think instead of how you feel at the moment. Often it involves sacrificing the pleasure and thrill of the moment for what matters more. Setting goals, making plans to achieve them, and staying on track is hard work. The greater your capacity for self-discipline, the more rewards fall within your grasp. If you struggle with self-discipline, the good news is that it can be developed.

Self-discipline means demonstrating positive patterns of behavior and having the strength of mental and moral courage to accomplish tasks, manage time, and relate effectively with others. You can demonstrate self-discipline by doing your chores even though you may not want to or completing your school assignments on time.

Learn how willpower and persistence can turn you into the very model of self-discipline with help from these library books! The self-discipline booklist is also a wonderful place to discover books perfect for elementary, middle, or high school readers.
