Gift of discipline

Discipline is good for you. Reward yourself with some.

Discipline demonstrates to you how much you’re capable of accomplishing. Practice discipline, and it strengthens itself along with all your other skills.

You cannot choose whether or not to be disciplined. You can only choose whether that discipline will be imposed by you, or by some force outside your control.

Life improves dramatically when the discipline you are subject to is the discipline you choose. That choice transforms discipline from punishment to empowerment.

Every action, or neglect of action, has consequences. Discipline guides you to perform the actions that produce the most desirable consequences.

If you’re disappointed with your results, find a way to add more discipline to your efforts. Give yourself the powerful gift of discipline, and give your world the benefit of all the great things you can achieve.

— Ralph Marston
