Why discipline is not the answer

Why discipline is not the answer

October 20, 2020

Amarjit talks about something everyone struggles with – discipline. He explains why focusing on discipline to follow through with your intentions is not the correct perspective. He provides a different way to view discipline that will help you create awareness of the true reason you are having difficulty changing habit patterns. Amarjit lays out the true battle behind discipline. He explains how discipline is a battle between one tendency and another. He goes on to say that when you look deeper you will realize that it isn’t about discipline, but rather two other factors: understanding of cause and effect, and self-love.
