Even getting up in the morning. Everyone has at least some self discipline. Its just the amount that makes the difference.
According to you, I'm on a raw diet, thus I have lots of self-discipline.
Nevertheless, I still completely lack self-discipline. I'm not even able to get up at the same time every morning (even when this time is very late). Or to have regular meals. Or to work when I don't feel passionately inspired to. Or to take care of the household chores regularly enough to keep the house clean at all times.
You don't need self-discipline if you have enough clarity about what you want, and playfully develop a few strategies to help you. I wrote a post about it if you're interested: Magical Chest » Does it take self-discipline to go raw?
