Develop Discipline

Here’s a valuable quote borrowed from an article by one of my mentors, Dan Kennedy:  “Winners make themselves do the things necessary to win.”  Leaders in every field of endeavor develop the discipline required to achieve their goals or complete their mission.

Athletes undergo daily regimens of often intense training to develop the strength and endurance required to play at peak levels.

If you’ve been in any branch of the armed forces, you know that basic training or boot camp is about developing discipline.  This could very well be the most important, positive effect on someone serving in the military.

Sadly, many people in our society simply lack the discipline to get out of bed and go to work.  It’s true, there are some things I’d rather not do and it takes discipline to execute those things.

Discipline yourself today to receive the rewards of tomorrow.
