One half of life is work, the other half is discipline and that’s the important half. For without discipline you wouldn’t know what to do with success that comes from hard work. It doesn’t matter what you’re trying to accomplish. It’s all a matter of discipline.
Without discipline you can’t get to the top, and if you cut corners and get to the top, you will soon crash because you lack the discipline required to remain at the top. Discipline is everything.
There are infinite number of routes that you could take on your path to success. Whatever path you take, there’ll always be some problems that you’ll need to overcome. It’s at times like this that you need discipline to maintain your course and not give up the race to success.
As with every business you start or are involved in, 100% discipline is needed to ensure that you have maximum yield of your efforts, energy and time. Running a business is never a smooth ride. There will always be some obstacles – circumstances or situations, waiting around the corner to distract or hinder you from reaching your goals, and if you want your business to survive, you’ve got to stay disciplined and never relent in your effort to overcome all the challenges before you.
Discipline will help you push through hard times. It is discipline that makes you work when you don’t feel like it. It is discipline that makes you deny yourself some certain comforts of life in order to create a bright and successful future. Discipline keeps you on track, keeps you going, keeps you dedicated, focused and unrelenting. Discipline is one of the building blocks to building a strong foundation for success in life and business.
You see, there are two levels of discipline.
– The first level is the discipline required to get to the top.
– The second level is the discipline required to remain at the top.
The fact about life and success is that you cannot attain the discipline to remain at the top without the discipline to get to the top. The discipline to remain at the top is a child of the discipline to get to the top. The first gives birth to the second. People who cut corners to get to the top often fall and crash with a very high level of fatality because the first level of discipline that guarantees the second is missing.
So, imbibe the virtue of discipline. Commit to be disciplined. Live and work with your disciplined mode turned on. Success is yours.
