The power of discipline

Self discipline is not something you acquire. It is something you use.

When you make use of it, self discipline will help to bring about anything you can imagine. And it is yours to use whenever you choose.

You don’t need to take a certain course or read a particular book or attend a weekend workshop in order to benefit from self discipline. The benefits of self discipline come, not with any special knowledge or skill, but with simple practice.

When you decide to discipline yourself to achieve, you achieve. When you decide to make consistent use of discipline in your life, you’re able to fulfill the best of your possibilities.

Put self discipline to use, and you can reach your dreams. Put self discipline to use, and no obstacle can stand in your way for long.

The power of self discipline is yours to use when you have a reason that’s meaningful enough to you. So find that reason, lock your focus onto it, and you’re already well on your way.
