As a continuation of yesterday’s post and Bruce Lee’s incredible discipline, here are a few quotes I thought you’d enjoy:
Self-discipline is a form of freedom. Freedom from laziness and lethargy, freedom from the expectations and demands of others, freedom from weakness and fear—and doubt. Self-discipline allows a pitcher to feel his individuality, his inner strength, his talent. He is master of, rather than a slave to, his thoughts and emotions. — H.A. Dorfman The Mental ABCs of Pitching
If you set goals for yourself, and you’re like a lot of other people, you probably realize it’s not that your goals are physically impossible that’s keeping you from achieving them; it’s that you lack the self-discipline to stick to them. ~Daniel Goldstein
Self-discipline is an act of cultivation. It require you to connect today’s actions to tomorrow’s results. There’s a season for sowing a season for reaping. Self-discipline helps you know which is which. ~Gary Ryan Blair
Self-discipline is often disguised as short-term pain, which often leads to long-term gains. The mistake many of us make is the need and want for short-term gains (immediate gratification), which often leads to long-term pain. ― Charles F. Glassman, Brain Drain The Breakthrough That Will Change Your Life
Not being able to govern events, I govern myself, and apply myself to them, if they will not apply themselves to me. ~Michel de Montaigne, Essays, 1588
Everyone must choose one of two pains: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret. ~Jim Rohn
Which one of these resonated with you? Keep it handy so you can refer to it frequently throughout your day. Let its wisdom infuse you and keep you on track toward your dreams.
You can do it!
