Disciplined For Life: You are the Author of Your Future

Topics: ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Discipline is defined as a commitment to the most important person in the world. It means doing what you have to do, even when you don’t want to do it.

    Any behaviour that gets recognized and/or rewarded gets repeated. To be disciplined for life requires that you recognize and reward yourself accordingly.

    So let’s start with the first question: who is the most important person in the world? While you are at it, who is your greatest enemy?

    It is fair to say that you came into this world as a miracle. Then what happened?

    You got exposed to the outside world – family, religion, education, friends, politics, etc., and you internalized these messages. You have created who you are by what you allowed in. Is it fair to say you have created your own fears, barriers, limitations, and beliefs primarily because you have lived your life from the outside-in? Is it fair to say you are who you are because of you?

    Yes, you are the most important person in the world, and at the same time your own worst enemy.

    Maybe it is time to take a good look at your beliefs about you. As an adult, you should be able to distinguish between fact and fiction – what is real about you and what is not. Maybe it is time to turn things around, to believe in yourself, to take control of your life and start living your life from the inside-out.

    Your beliefs will determine your attitude. Your attitude determines how you feel, and how you feel determines the actions you take, which in the end provide you with results. Are you getting the results you are looking for? If not, take control of your life and start living your life from the inside-out, instead of the outside-in.

    Combining attitude and discipline, both of which are 100% under your control, will increase your performance by 200%. By the way, each word when translated to numeric value adds up to 100. Try it and see for yourself.

    Of all commitments one makes in life, the one you make to yourself is by far the most important. So, make some commitments and get Disciplined for Life, as you are the author of your future.

    What is the most productive time of your day – morning, day or night? What would happen if you took one hour of that most productive time and dedicated it to the most important person in the world? As a morning person, that is what I do first. After that hour, I reward myself with my first cup of coffee. Ummm, is it ever good.

    Just applying this one discipline in your life will make the difference.
