“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most.” -Abraham Lincoln
The desire to seek immediate gratification can be our enemy. It drives us towards the comfortable choice. The safer option, or the compromise.
What we lack in those moments is discipline. Discipline is the willingness to stick to goals we set out to do. Emotions and conditions can sway us away, where our discipline can see the temptations for what they are, and make the right decision.
This skill, is one that we can practice and, has been linked many times over to being a critical component of success.
What our emotions drive us towards today, may very well be directly against what we want in the long run. So, we must question them. Stacked side by side, here we need to choose. Which one do we want more? There can only be one.
Ask yourself: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being unwavering commitment, how dedicated am I to (insert goal, dream, vision)? In the 9 and 10s? Discipline is following you around. Down in the 6 and 7s? Start thinking about why that might be. Awareness is the first step towards change. Let’s begin to figure it out!
