Embrace discipline

Run away from discipline, and it punishes you. Embrace discipline, and it enables you to do magnificent things.

You can decide to discipline yourself, or you will surely and eventually have discipline forced upon you. It is far better to choose it for yourself, so you can fashion with it whatever you desire.

You already have the ability to act with self-discipline. Make use of that ability by making it a constant habit.

Discipline doesn’t cost you. It pays, over and over again. Discipline makes what you already have, more valuable. And with discipline you can create much more new value.

Do what is in the best interest of everyone involved, even when it is not comfortable or easy at the moment. Long after the immediate inconvenience and discomfort are gone, you’ll be enjoying the rewards of choosing to discipline yourself.

— Ralph Marston
