Back in 2017 I was on a call with a mentor and she said to me, “discipline equals freedom.” Those 3 words changed a lot of things for me and because of the shifts I’ve been feeling lately, I thought it was time to revisit the topic.

Because really, it’s so much harder to overthink how to do something, or why something isn’t doing what you want, than it is to just do the thing. I’m super guilty of this, and I bet you are sometimes too. I’ve let some of my discipline slide in terms of time blocking, getting things done, and I’ve realized that I’ve been rebelling against myself. The kinder thing to do is to honor my commitments to myself rather than letting myself have the guilty pleasure of saying no.

If you’re rebelling against your own schedule, look at what past experiences or traumas are coming up and making you feel like you need to rebel. Who do you want to be? Then be her. Stick to the decisions you’ve made for yourself because you deserve it.

Re-examine your relationship with the word “discipline” and seek how being more disciplined can create a whole lot of freedom for you.

I’d love to hear from you. Like really, you! You can text me at 848-257-5301 to say hi, let me know what you’d like to hear, and get a great conversation going. You can tag me on Instagram @saradann_ about what your biggest takeaway from this episode was, or you can visit my website at
