Originating in the Latin term discipline, the discipline is the method , the guide or the to know of a person , especially with regard to moral issues. The concept is also used to refer to a scientific or artistic branch .
For example: "To learn to play a musical instrument you must have discipline", "Jaimito is a child with many discipline problems", "Poetry is a literary discipline that I can't master".
The notion of discipline, therefore, may be linked to the behavior or to the attitude of someone. Discipline is said to be good when the person respects the rules, laws or regulations within some scope: "Insulting a teacher is a serious lack of discipline", "All players have to respect the discipline imposed by the coach".
In general, discipline requires respecting a certain dress code, complying with a schedule and addressing hierarchical superiors in a particular way, among other obligations. This means that, in a company, discipline can include wearing a uniform, entering the factory at 8 in the morning and not guarding the boss.
Based on these cited examples we can, therefore, underline that there are various types of discipline such as that which takes place in the school or school, the one that is developed in the military field, the one that has as a framework the Church or even the one that is established as a fundamental part of a person's professional field.
And that without forgetting what is known as personal discipline or self-discipline, which is one that is composed of a series of guidelines and behaviors that someone carries out, in a constant and iron manner, for the benefit of stability and the achievement of objectives that have been marked.
That is why when talking about self-discipline on many occasions it is identified with personal success because it is established that it is the way to achieve the dreams we have. In this sense, a perfect example is the set of athletes whose goal is to win their competitions and the tests they have to face. Thus, to achieve victory in them it is necessary that they have a training and feeding discipline that enables them physically and mentally.
In this way, it is established that this type of discipline is based on a series of principles or basic rules such as willpower, persistence, hard work, acceptance and industriousness. Elements all of them that become the key to establish our discipline and, therefore, to achieve the goals we have set.
Discipline, on the other hand, can be a professional or study field . Anthropology, sculpture, kinesiology and football are very different issues that, however, can be considered as disciplines according to context. Thus it is possible to find expressions such as "John Koggrer is an expert in anthropology, sociology and other social science disciplines" or "Sculpture is my favorite artistic discipline".
