By speaking something wrong or inappropriate we miss the opportunity to receive a promotion, we lose our friends and our reputation. That is why it is very important to learn thinking before speaking something out. Take a deep breath before speaking and think: is this exactly what you are going to say? Won’t you mess the things up by saying this? Won’t you hurt anyone? This simple strategy can be quite hard to master, but it will bring you great results in a short period of time.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eating a healthy diet and cooking proper meals every day, doing lots of physical exercises and outdoor activities, avoiding fast food restaurants and walking instead of taking a bus – doing this everything on a regular basis is actually not easy thing at all! But this is one of the best ways to not only remain healthy and fit, but also to train your discipline muscle.
