Many competent people "self-sabotage" themselves every day by overreacting emotionally and hurting their relationships — both at work and at home. They stay stuck in habits that hurt them, such as procrastination, disorganization, avoiding conflict ... the list goes on and on.
On the other end of the spectrum, professionals can respond to adversity with a level head — even if they're ready to "blow a fuse".
Often what they do differently is adapt to workplace changes — even those that are tough to swallow and stick with difficult challenges when solutions don't come easily. They follow through on plans in order to turn "good intentions" into reality ... and meet more goals. They are able to develop the steady self-control it takes to stand up for yourself and deal with conflicts positively and break on-the-job habits that hurt you, like procrastination, disorganization, and others.
You can bring more discipline into your personal and professional life by creating healthier routines and relationships.
