We grow a little every time we do not take advantage of somebody's weakness.

The boss

You have significant control over your actions, your thoughts, your feelings, your words, your opinions. It’s not total control all the time but it’s a whole lot more than anyone else has.

The positive and purposeful exercise of that control is called discipline. It is something you can improve upon every day.

The more you experience yourself exercising discipline and the more you experience the rewards of that discipline, the stronger it grows. Certainly there are times when discipline does not come easy, and those are the times when it has the greatest positive impact.

What small part of your life today can you exercise more beneficial control over? Do that consistently, repeatedly, and the benefits will spread throughout your whole world.

Reality is always there to impose its discipline on you whether you want it or not. Answer that by getting out in front of reality with your own discipline.

You are the boss of you. Be an exceptional one.

— Ralph Marston
