Successful people are aware of their commitment to excellence. They always find back to the own discipline and focus.
They immediately recognize when they lose themselves in distraction, in enticement, in outer influences.
Excellence and discipline is learned behavior … it gives confidence and trust in the own person.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~ Aristotle
KEEP THIS IN MIND ….
WHAT IS DISCIPLINE?
1. Do what has to be done
2. No matter how hard it is
3. Do it with excellence
Jim Rohn describes discipline like that:
“It is the bridge between thought and accomplishment … the glue that binds inspiration to achievement … the magic that turns financial necessity into the creation of an inspired work of art.
Discipline is the master key that unlocks the door to wealth and happiness, culture and sophistication, high self-esteem and high accomplishment and the accompanying feelings of pride, satisfaction and success. Discipline will do much for you. More importantly, though, is what it will do to you. It will make you feel terrific about yourself.”
But don`t forget to live!
Discipline should not rule our life!
Too much discipline can destroy happiness!
True leadership is a combination of discipline, letting go, spontaneity, flexibility, enthusiasm and joy.
Finding the right balance is the art.
