We think we hate discipline. But the truth is, we all need it. And ironically it is discipline that creates freedom.
When you start a new activity like the gym, cardio, or self-development, you may not want to do it each day. You have to make yourself do it. You don’t want to, but you do it anyway.
Then a funny thing happens…
Suddenly you reach a point where you want to do it. And if something comes up to prevent you from doing it, you’re actually disappointed or upset. When you reach that point, you’ve got it licked!
If you’ve followed my work for a while, then you’ve often heard me share my mantra on this:
“I will do today what others will not do, so tomorrow I can do what others cannot do.”
This has served me well over the years and given me a dream life. But that dream life grew from my earlier discipline, just as my future freedoms and joys are grounded in my discipline of today.
So how are you doing on that?
