Self Discipline

This morning I talked to my mom about my lack of self-discipline. I believe that we are all on this earth to make decisions and to learn how to make the right decisions. I am so complacent so often, though; I don't exercise that freedom I have to do the things that I know will bring me the greatest happiness and peace. How annoying! How can I possibly live with myself when I know what I should be doing, and I'm not doing it? I wrote down a schedule for myself - I think it was last week - to try to get the things done that I needed to, but I didn't even follow it. I ought to be able to get myself to do the things I need to, but for some reason it seems easier to try to get other people to get things done, rather than myself.

I'm bad at this too. And quite frankly--I can't figure out how to be more self-disciplined, it feels impossible sometimes! I'll come up with new ideas, make lists, pray for self-discipline, even try to "reward" myself for getting things may work for a day or two, then I'm back where I was!
I don't get it!
