Skeletal muscle is one of three major muscle types, the others being cardiac muscle and smooth muscle. It is a form of striated muscle tissue which is under the voluntary control of the somatic nervous system. Most skeletal muscles are attached to bones by bundles of collagen fibers known as tendons. It utilizes the force of gravity in the form of weighted bars, dumbbells or weight stacks in order to oppose the force generated by muscle through concentric or eccentric contraction. Weight training uses a variety of specialized equipment to target specific muscle groups and types of movement.
Sports where strength training is central are bodybuilding, weightlifting, powerlifting, and strongman, Highland games, discus throw, and javelin throw.

At a certain moment in your life while thinking you come up with an idea. This idea is awesome and you decide to make that idea your goal. To accomplish your goal you think hard and come up with an action plan and start working on it. But after certain period of time you start facing difficulties and frequent discouragements. These negative things can come from both the internal and external world around you. In most of the cases people find it very difficult to move forward while facing all negativity and they give up. This happens due to lack of Self Discipline and commitment.
What is Self Discipline?
Self discipline is the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses; the ability to pursue what one thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it. Self-discipline and self-control give you power over your life. Discipline is a course of actions leading to certain goal or ideal. A disciplined person is one that has established a goal and is willing to achieve that goal at the expense of his or her individuality.

Self discipline is very valuable and one of the most useful skills you should possess. This skill is required in every aspect of your life, and though we acknowledge the importance of self discipline, very few of us do anything to strengthen it.
Each one of us have certain goals and dreams in their mind, and desire in heart. But as the time passes, people start getting demotivate. After a short time of motivation those goals and dreams start to fade. This happens because of lack of Self Discipline, and commitment. With the help of Self Discipline we get the potential to stay attached to our dreams and goals.
Discipline is the assertion of willpower over more base desires, and is usually understood to be synonymous with self control. Self-discipline is to some extent a substitute for motivation, when one uses reason to determine the best course of action that opposes one’s desires. Virtuous behavior is when one’s motivations are aligned with one’s reasoned aims: to do what one knows is best and to do it gladly. Content behavior, on the other hand, is when one does what one knows is best, but must do it by opposing one’s motivations. Moving from content to virtuous behavior requires training and some self-discipline.
In every part of life discipline is necessary. Our personal and social life requires so much discipline. If the discipline is not followed, then life will become disorderly. When we look up the history and mythology, then we find several examples where the discipline has achieved significant successes and accomplishments. These achievements became a great source of motivation for us.
Today, the scramble of life has increased most of us want to make more and more profit in very less time. We do not want to follow the path of discipline. But it is a harsh reality that success cannot be achieved without discipline. And Discipline can only be developed by following some rules for a long period of time.
How to develop Self Discipline
Below is a four step process which can help you develop Self Discipline.
Analyze our daily activities and make a list of things you think are blocking your path towards success.
Commit to your self not to repeat those thing which you think are not helpful to you. And replace those things or habits with positive things and habits, which will accelerate your growth.
After performing step 1 and 2 you will know your strength and weakness. Make a plan which you think will work for you. While making your action plan think about every possible way to improve it.
Now after knowing want to do and how to do, start practicing your new daily routine enthusiastically.
While trying to change your lifestyle you will face failure and discouragement, do not loose faith. Stay firm like a mountain, keep on following your plan until you reach your goal.
If the citizens of a country are disciplined then that country will continue on the path of sustained progress and will move forward in all areas. The lesson of discipline will always help us to move forward in our life and face the challenges of life.
In our day to day life we encounter many problems and hurdles with which we have to fight. We don’t just sit in a corner and wait for someone to come and solve our problems. We try our level best to overcome the difficulties and problems life throws on us. You all are courageous Warriors, because you don’t rely on others help. It’s not true that a person specialized in combat and warfare activities can only be called a Warrior. People who fight with Weapons and bombs and kill innocent men, women and children can never be called as true Warriors. A true Warrior is one who fights for truth and good of world.
A Spiritual Warrior armed with his sword of self knowledge and self control, destroys ignorance and attains a state in which there is no suffering, and selfish desires. For a true warrior his mind is his battle field and his ignorance is his enemy. He releases himself from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. Nirvana is the final goal of a Spiritual warrior.
What is Spirituality
We can not define Spirituality precisely. Spirituality may refer to a meaningful activity, which helps in your personal growth and self-realization. Unlike religion, spirituality is associated with the interior life of the individual. Spiritual practice are your journey towards nirvana, self realization, the discovery of higher truths, and true nature of reality.
A true Spiritual warrior fights with himself because man is the worst enemy of man. Mind if controlled is our best friend if not the worst foe.
Morality, concentration and Wisdom these are the weapons of a true Spiritual Warrior which he uses to kill the Passions of lust, hatred and ignorance that resides in mind. The true Spiritual warrior combats the universal enemy, self ignorance which is the ultimate source of suffering.
The spiritual warrior’s only complete and right practice is that which compassionately helps other beings with wisdom. Hence we all should become a spiritual warrior and kill all our lust of passions, greed, immorality, self -ignorance and other negativity of the mind using the weapons of self-knowledge, self-discipline, concentration of mind, virtue and our deep common sense.
Once a spiritual warrior purifies his mind then his ultimate task is the War against the universal self ignorance, lust, greed and the negativity they produce in a persons mind. Those who prefer to battle with passions in solitude alone are perfectly free.
To a Spiritual warrior, solitude is Happiness. Those who seek delight in battle with life’s problems living in the world and thus make a happy world where men can live as ideal citizens in perfect peace and harmony, can adopt that responsibility and courage.
I believe that each and every one of you can become a Spiritual warrior. The darkness within can only be destroyed by self knowledge, not by weapons. Enlightenment should be the true goal of our life.
