A Habit That I Learnt From My Parent #WriteAPageADay #Day14

One of the most valuable lessons that I learned from my parent is the habit of discipline. From a young age, my parent instilled in me the importance of setting goals, creating a plan, and working hard to achieve those goals. It’s a habit that has served me well throughout my life, and I credit my parent for helping me develop it.

Discipline is often misunderstood as being strict or rigid. However, my parent showed me that it is about having a clear idea of what you want to achieve and taking the necessary steps to get there. It is about being accountable to yourself and having the determination to follow through on your commitments.

One of the ways that my parent helped me develop discipline was by setting expectations and boundaries. As a child, I had a set bedtime, was expected to complete my homework before playing, and was held accountable for my behavior. These rules helped me develop a sense of structure and order, and taught me the importance of taking responsibility for my actions.

As I grew older, my parent encouraged me to set my own goals and develop a plan to achieve them. Whether it was getting good grades, pursuing a hobby, or working towards a long-term career goal, my parent taught me to break down the steps needed to achieve those goals into manageable tasks. By breaking down the process, I could focus on each step without feeling overwhelmed, and I could track my progress towards my larger goal.

Another way that my parent encouraged discipline was by modeling it themselves. My parent had a strong work ethic, and would often work long hours to provide for our family. However, they also made time for hobbies, exercise, and other activities that helped them maintain balance in their life. By seeing my parent’s commitment to their own goals and responsibilities, I learned the importance of taking care of myself and making time for things that were important to me.

Today, I continue to practice the habit of discipline that my parent taught me. I set goals for myself, create a plan to achieve them, and work hard to stay on track. I’ve learned that discipline isn’t about being perfect or never making mistakes, but rather about staying committed to your goals even when things get challenging.

In conclusion, the habit of discipline that I learned from my parent has been one of the most valuable lessons of my life. It has helped me to achieve my goals, stay focused, and be accountable for my actions. I’m grateful for my parent’s guidance and encouragement, and I hope to pass on this habit to others in my life.
