Exercising control

Discipline is easier than it sounds. Discipline is nothing more than choosing, with intention and positive purpose, while considering all the consequences of making that choice.

Discipline is a matter of controlling the person over whom you already have the most control. That person is you.

When you focus on the consequences of each action you take, on the short term and long term consequences, discipline comes easily and naturally. Discipline is the recognition and celebration of the fact that your actions have influence.

By choosing your actions you can choose your results. By choosing your actions you can choose the life you create for yourself.

Discipline is not a punishment or a burden when you choose it for yourself. Discipline is one of life’s greatest opportunities.

Choose in each moment to exercise the control that you already have. Live and act with discipline, and create a life of true fulfillment.
