    Please suggest ways to prioritize my life and discipline myself

    I have read many self help books and have tried several tools.

    I want a strong way to prioritize my life and discipline myself..

    I know my approach is getting better and I am learning more about life but I need to turn my thoughts into action and with determination, which I am lacking.

    can you be a little more specific with what you have to priortize from and be disciplined about?

    Read my hubs for life improving guides.

    A few tips, embrace your imperfections, try listenining to uplifting music, laugh at yourself, express your emotions. Simple things like these can help you feel more determined and confident about yourself.

    The first and most obvious is find your passion - if you lack determination it means you haven't found your true calling yet. 

    Lack of motivation also stems from fear - fear of failure or fear of success even - ask yourself with honesty what you are afraid of and then work to accept your fears.  When we accept our fears we find ourselves better able to move forward despite them.  When we try to push them away or deny them we hold ourselves down. 

    I have written extensively on universal laws and how to manifest what you truly want - you're welcome to look at those hubs if you like and hopefully they will help you.  I don't just write about it - I understand it and have used it for years to overcome a great deal of adversity and become very determined smile You'll get there... keep searching and embrace the learning opportunity you are currently in.

    I agree with ChristinS, whenever you find yourself dragging your feet and needing a kick in the butt to move forward, it means one of two things:

    - you haven't really identified what you truly want, and now you're trying to push yourself forward instead of finding the thing that's pulling you towards your True Self or

    - you have such a deeply ingrained program about fear of failure or fear of criticizm that you don't dare to go towards your dream.

    In both cases,  willpower will not get you to where you want to go.  You need to find out what is really holding you back and do something about that.

    I'be written some Hubs about EFT, a great self-help tool,  you might want to check that out.

    Good luck!

    I would recommend working on your core values, and also to look back at what you have done in the past that you really liked or found success with. Something that really motivated you or sparked something in you, and then see if you could pinpoint what it was that gave you the sparks or motivation.

    Then see if there is any way you could apply this with what you are doing today, or maybe it will lead you to start something completely new where you will find motivation with.

    I hope this helps! All the best to you!

    One thing I am notorious for is having a ton of ideas and few finished projects. I had to take myself to the point of breaking down goals into daily actions and that has worked for me for the past six months or so. I am able to see my progress often enough to feel okay that I am making strides and when I don't feel that way, I take extra time for a day or two so I can make up time. This DOES NOT apply however to housecleaning. I still hate housecleaning and have not found a way to really motivate myself to want to do that...I just do it.

    Setup a TODO list.

    Stick with it no matter what. Initially it maybe hard but eventually you will overcome the weakness of not able to do so.

    Try it and with determination, it will definitely work. It did for me so I do not see why it should fail for anyone else.

    Focus.  Write it down.  How about think of three things that is most important to you?  Most people would say relationships, health, career, money, personal development. Concentrate on the topmost essential to your life.  What can you not live without?  Go from there.  Have action plan.  Then, GTD.

    Best of luck.

    First, if I start a project, I finish it before anything else. If I did not, I would have items all over the place. I am a very disciplined person toward many things. One are my vitamins; always take at the same time of the day. Second, "MY" time. Every day at 3:00, I lock my bedroom door, turn on 3 noise makers, and then the fan. I cover my eyes to darken the room. I pray first, then relax every muscle in my body. After an hour, I am totally refreshed and ready to live my life wise. All during the day, I have certain times for certain things. One of my biggest rule is, "BE POSITIVE!". When something bad happens, I think of the good things about the experience.
