How Discipline is Built, Part 3!!

How Discipline is Built, Part 3!!!

Part 3 – but not the last part – of building discipline – is to see results…

Maybe that one sounds too simple too…

It’s important as you do something you can tell it works – you can feel or notice it working.

Example… Lets say you’re trying to lose weight. If you were very good and followed your diet and exercise plan for 30 days and you couldn’t measure any difference on the scale or on your waist…. would you be able to persevere and continue to have discipline? Probably not!

So you need to – as you make progress – be able to measure that progress somehow. At KarateBuilt Martial Arts we have a belt system I am sure you’ve heard of martial arts belts and Black Belt before. Ours is a little unique in the realm of martial arts for many reasons but one reason is that – on purpose we have many belt colors. We have a lot of them so – while it takes anywhere from 3 and a half to 5 years to earn your Black Belt (our system is tougher than most) we use the belts relatively frequently to measure your progress all the way to Black Belt.

That way during the early stages you can maintain discipline and when you are a Black Belt and you’ve built discipline, then you can measure your progress less frequently.

So… Step 3 to building discipline is measuring your progress and making sure you’re making progress!

Once you build discipline in one area it applies to any other areas of your life. With discipline it’s straightforward to accomplish anything. Without discipline it’s hard to accomplish much.

MORE Results… their own words!


“Getting your child involved in the program is very helpful for many reasons. If your child is outgoing, the program will allow them to learn when to be active and when to stop and listen. If your child is easily distracted, the program will help them with focus.

I have seen all of the students grow and become confident in all areas due to the involvement in the program. If you allow your child to become involved earlier, it is proven your results will be greater. I recommend the program to all parents for their children.” – Jodi Clark
