What is the purpose of discipline? Is it about achievement? If discipline is outcome driven, you will never be at peace or content. You will always run after the next challenge, and often the results you are chasing will own you. At that moment you disconnect with your true infinite self and you are trapped into the finite.
The purpose of discipline is not about keeping your body fat at 20% or less, not eating your vegetables or sleeping the right amount of time; the purpose of discipline is to live beyond the polarity of your emotions. If you get stuck into the world of emotions, you will go through highs and lows, excitement and depression, addiction and reaction, seduction and rejection; in brief you will not access the wisdom of the heart and its stability. Emotions are wonderful when they are part of a whole spectrum of life not when they take over you.
When you go beyond the polarity or your emotions you are free; you can access the clarity and neutrality of the heart. From there you have direct experience with your infinite self; it is not a concept anymore it is palpable.
When you remember that discipline is about staying connected with your infinite self, then your discipline does not become a chore, then you don’t identify yourself with your accomplishments or failures, then you realize that discipline is simply the path to happiness.

The ultimate discipline has nothing to do with how well you eat, how much you exercise, or how balanced your life is. The ultimate discipline has not much to do with your will to achieve what you want in life.
The ultimate discipline has to do with your ability to surrender and be in the moment. To create this, you need to shift your focus from a place of will to a place of self-awareness.
Self-awareness does not mean over analyzing everything that is happening to you. It means being curious about your experience and your reactions moment to moment. You are focusing on noticing your reactions instead of trying to understand them. Shift from a place of analyzing everything to a place of being curious and you will gain energy and vibrancy. Learn to be curious and clueless.
