Your Self Discipline VS. Your Future Success
Self Discipline is like a muscle.
The more we exercise it, the more success we create.
Agreed? Sounds simple, and yet it’s not.
I recently read a series of blog posts by Steve Pavlina that describe his 5 Steps of Self Discipline.
1. Acceptance – begin by being honest about your current situation
2. Will Power – make the decision to improve
3. Hard Work – creating the steps necessary to improve
4. Industry – The DO
5. Persistence – exercising the right amount of grit
I like what Calvin Coolidge once said about step #5…………
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone is omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
So let us choose to “Press On” and exercise that muscle. Just think of the magic we’ll create!
Smiles, have a great week, and Keep on Seeking……………….Mark
