When the topic of creating results through discipline comes up, carefully watch and listen to people’s responses. They usually land in one of three categories:
“Absolutely, it’s all about choices and discipline.”
“I know, I know, it’s just so hard to stay disciplined.”
“I’m not into discipline. It’s not who I am.”
I’ve discovered the latter two responses (It’s so hard or It’s not who I am) don’t come from a place of self-awareness, but rather a lack of it. They’re fear-based. Not understanding what real discipline is only amplifies the fear.
