Avoiding discipline and getting worse.

Discipline is an imperfect practice. It’s our choice, and we are imperfect. So, our discipline is imperfect.

Avoiding discipline is always an option. That temptation exists every day. We choose between disciplined action and whatever temptations oppose that disciplined action.

When you avoid discipline, what story do you tell yourself? Is it to make your life easier? Does it get you more of what you want? Does it lower your stress? Does it earn you more credibility and respect?

What value does avoiding discipline deliver to you? What good is it doing? What does the evidence of your life show? 

Some people believe avoiding discipline makes their life easier. They will one day discover the size of their mistake. The consequences of avoiding discipline are limitless and unforgiving. The emotional consequences are devastating. Unfortunately, many discover it too late.

Acting with discipline has its difficulties. No denying that. But it’s not as difficult as the consequences of avoiding discipline.

Avoiding discipline compounds difficulty, discomfort, and dissatisfaction. Acting with discipline, even when it’s difficult, compounds rewards, achievements, and enjoyment.

Brick by brick. Do the work.
