Discipline: The Success Ingredient by Janet Callaway

Discipline is the most important ingredient in the success formula.

It is the glue that binds inspiration to achievement or as Jim Rohn said: “It is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.”

He went on to say: “We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is disciplines weights ounces while regret weighs tons.”

Yet, why is it that we so often fail to discipline ourselves to do the activities that will bring us the results we want? The reason, I believe, goes back to our childhoods when “discipline” was a “bad” word and meant we would be punished.

What we need to do is reframe our thinking of the word discipline. If you discipline yourself to do the things necessary to achieve your goal you will be Rewarded by receiving that goal.

Look at it this way: Discipline + Correct Activities = Reward. Let me know if this works for you.
