The concept of self-discipline and self-esteem are consistent with character traits required for exceptional leadership. They constitute significant factors for exhibiting an illustrious and successful relationship in formal and informal environments and for the accomplishment of task or projects. In a formal organization such as the military institution governed by laws which are essential to instill leadership qualities for a successful military career, self-discipline and self-esteem are pivotal to produce military leaders who will not abide by the laws but also exhibit exemplary behavior. The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) Kaduna, is one of Nigeria’s Military university. The institution runs degree programs and conducts military trainings for the production of cadet officers for the Nigerian army. These sets of officers are expected to maintain the highest level of discipline and self- esteem in the performance of their constitutional duties. The duration of training in the institution consist 4 years of studies and 1 year of military trainings. The institution was established in 1964 to train the officer corps of the Nigerian Army, Navy and Air Force.

It reflects the individuals overall subjective emotional evaluation of their own self-worth.      It is the attitude expressed towards oneself. On the other hand, self-discipline is the exercise of the character of restraint, perseverance, thoughtfulness, ability to succeed in the face of Challenges. It is the ability to implement decisions, exercise self-discipline and diligence to achieve results. Self-discipline enables an individual to forego present pleasure for something more durable and satisfying. It is that trait that prevents an individual from unhealthy excessive activity which could lead to negative consequences. The exercise of self-discipline is the display of inner strength and power which is fundamental for overcoming daily activities.
