Discipline is an interesting word- rooted from the Latin word disiplinia- meaning “instruction and training” but more so obtained from the word “discere”, which means “to learn”. To have discipline is to allow yourself to have control and regulation towards certain behavior. With this discipline, you are able to follow the rules or another which is sought out to, in most cases, benefit you. Taking this authority from another gives you the opportunity as an individual to show your understanding, leadership, and training with provided rules. This can help you grow in the future because it is an essential part of structuring YOU in general ! Without discipline your life may quickly spiral out of control. For example, one way humans use discipline daily is by obeying the law. If you were to break the law there would be consequences to ensure that you are disciplined. With these regulations, it prevents you from disruptions and prevents others from it as well. Another way people are disciplined is by following the rules of a school or a classroom. In the classroom you will be asked to raise your hands to ask or answer questions. You may be asked to stay in your seat unless necessary. You may even be asked to keep quiet when the teacher or another student is talking/ presenting. These are all things that make the classroom work effectively and efficiently, which is exactly why it is very important to know how to practice discipline! It is better for everyone, including yourself.
