“Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.” ~ Gary Ryan Blair
What are you motivated by? What gets you focused? What drives you? What you gonna do with your life? *wink* No matter our answers to these questions, we must exhibit or exercise some form of discipline. Having the ability and courage to make decisions and see them through takes an extreme amount of discipline to carry out. Well, for some individuals it takes an extreme amount, for others it may seem effortless because they have already disciplined themselves to the point where it’s second nature. Some time ago I wrote about how difficult some people find it to do the right thing and how doing the opposite is easier said than done. Well for the disciplined mind, anything is possible; all things are achievable with the right mindset.
Not all forms of discipline are good however. You can have discipline or exercise self control in certain facets or areas of life but it can work to the detriment of your existence. The whole idea is to work smarter, not harder. Don’t kill yourself by getting stuck in certain modes of thinking. You can find yourself in a space where you are comfortable doing things a certain way, or accustomed to handling things in a particular manner; which in and of itself is not right or wrong, however I would challenge you to reconsider or refresh your processes. There may be a better, more efficient way of doing things, if you are open to that idea.
So as you go on with your day, think about the things that you have going on. Figure out where you can use a little more discipline without being rigid; diet, exercise, love, work, finances. There is some area of all of our lives that we can be more focused and be a little more disciplined in. You just have to want it.
I’ll still luv ya tomorrow…..
