Being too complacent and content with my life has been one of the issues I have been dealing with in my life. One example in my life is sleep. I always tell myself, "Hank, you wrote a plan and promised to yourself that you will wake up at 6am starting this month. No excuses." Then I find myself waking up at 7am or later. I somehow come up with all these crazy excuses in the morning that I deserve to wake up late. When I make pledges and promises to myself, I want to keep it, not come up with all kinds of crazy excuses to go around it. I want to find serious and grueling ways to punish myself if I don't keep my promises. For instance, if I keep waking up at a later time than I promised for, I want to make myself run 10 laps on the track or no eating for 2 days or something. There is no worse and frustrating feeling than finding yourself keep evading personal promises and rationalizing it. I want to punish myself very heavily whenever I allow that to happen. Can anyone help me on how to become more strict and disciplined in life? What would be the good punishment method whenever I am too complacent and content in life? Thanks in advance for any insights.
