The Power of Discipline

In the moment, discipline is never pleasant. Once the occasion has passed, we all love it’s benefits. Discipline is the difference between a complete success and an utter failure.

I’ve struggled with discipline from time-to-time in my life. Usually it’s right at the beginning of something. In a weird sort of way, I’ve come to appreciate it. I appreciate the power of discipline and what it can do in my life.

Discipline can get you anywhere that you want to go. Whether it's a weight loss goal, a promotion at work, or growth in the spiritual life, discipline is a key element for success.

It really is like a muscle. You have to build it up, and it takes time to do so. Discipline is grown one choice at a time.

If you’ll persevere, if you’ll continue to grow this muscle, you’ll be unstoppable. Any task, any objective, or any goal can be attained if you’ll simply apply discipline.
