We are born to discover life, to discover happiness in life. It is in ourselves, but our minds need something to do, something to bring discipline to our lives; thus we can be focused and discover that happiness within ourselves. If we have no discipline in our lives, or if we have no self-discipline, then our minds get restless, frustrated in life; and then we start building self-pity, anger, anxiety.
So, the mind is just like a child. If a child is not given structure and discipline by his parents, then the child becomes spoiled, obnoxious, impulsive and obstinate; and even worse, he starts becoming a bully and annoying others. The mind then must have the structure needed to be more self-aware, which is to look inwardly.
If the mind seeks love and happiness in others, in money, in relationships, in society, then the same mind loses self-awareness, because it starts focusing outwardly and not inwardly. So, to stay and focus inwardly is extremely important to have goals. Having goals requires self-discipline, because you must focus daily on strengthening that goal or goals.
You must be patient and work little by little, learn everything you can while paying attention to the smallest details. This structures the mind. This strengthens the mind. This helps you become more self-aware. Self-awareness is looking within to finally discover that happiness.
