Discipline brings freedom for YOU
Discipline brings freedom for YOU.
This week, I want you to consider what it means to free yourself from slavery by imposing discipline in your life. Doing what you want is not freedom because it can lead to slavery.
What does it mean to have discipline?
To help you focus on the discipline in your life, consider the following:
Get it done
Only by doing what you need to do can you earn the freedom to do what you want to do. If you want to make sales, you need to get prospects. If you donít prospect (what you need to do), you canít make a sale (what you want to do).
Time is not saved, it is spent. Once it is gone, you can never get it back. Commit to the attitude that you will do things that matter most, and you do them NOW!
Even if you donít want to
Success demands that you complete a task regardless of whether you want to or not. It doesnít matter how you feel mentally about a task as much as it matters how much better you will feel when it is done.
Remember what others have said about discipline:
Do the thing and you will have the power.
Right discipline consists, not in external compulsion, but in the habits of mind which lead spontaneously to desirable rather than undesirable activities.
