What are your tips for finding some sense of discipline as a young person from a relatively privileged background?

Thank you for the response I’ll definitely be thinking about these things.. but I’ve definitely felt that pressure and still feel it. I tell myself that I don’t need to surpass them since their obstacles (a child) were very different and pretty much forced them to excel and that I’m just trying to make the most of the situation they handed me, but for some reason it’s very difficult. I can do all the mental gymnastics of self analysis and whatnot I just find it tough to actually act on the results of that analysis.

I’m dreading most of the answers that come to my head LOL, but maybe something simple like getting out of bed right when I wake up instead of laying down on the phone or trying to sleep more could be a start

Yeah that big picture thinking can quickly set me on the existencial crisis path, do you do this by just constantly reminding yourself to focus on the present or do you have any other mental trickeries?

Ok I think I can do that. Thank you so much for your time!
