Attitude of discipline

Enforcing discipline in one part of your life encourages discipline in all parts of your life. Abandoning discipline in just one little area will degrade your discipline in every area.

Discipline is made up of actions, yet discipline also is an attitude, a way of approaching life. That’s why even the smallest increase or decrease in discipline can lead to sizable results.

It’s tempting to let the little things slide, just this once. Yet inevitably that leads you to compromise the bigger things, and not just this once but every time.

By the same measure, it’s easy to add a small, new disciplined behavior to your life. When you do, you’ll experience the increased benefits of discipline being carried into other parts of your life.

Discipline enables you to take control of your affairs, to have more positive influence in your world. The more you experience discipline, the more you’re inspired to practice it.

What small, disciplined regimen can you bestow upon yourself right now? Embrace new opportunities to discipline yourself, and your results will increasingly reflect your desires.
