One day at a time: a daily discipline of whatever you want it to be. Starting strong: giving it your all when you start something new. Servant leadership: Find others, Find out what you can do to help them, do so without asking for anything in return. Focus: Giving yourself a full dedication to the circumstance you’re presently experiencing. Personal Responsibility: Practice this by holding yourself 100% accountable for your thoughts and actions. Bonus points if you consider the repercussions of your actions before you take them. Continuous learning: Set a bar for your self-directed education, and perhaps find a means to serve with it to solidify what you’ve learned.
There are plenty of examples of what a simple discipline can represent. Here’s another one. Projection: Acknowledge your own thinking habits by separating fact from fiction about the way you paint an event, within five minutes of experiencing it.

Continuous education: What are five things I want to learn about today? What are five ways I can serve others with what I learned today?
Failure: What are five things I can learn from this experience?
Success: What are five things I can learn from this experience?
Personal practice: What are five ways I can apply what I’m being exposed to?
