Most of us want to succeed. We want to be successful. We want to accomplish something. I have met very few who did not. There is one thing that is often the missing link when we do not succeed as we could. Discipline. Truthfully, true discipline is the key to success.
It really does not matter what area you look at in your life – discipline can help you achieve what you never think you could. However, you must be disciplined. Sounds funny, does it not?
There is a quote that I have on my desk that says this – “Discipline determined my destiny, not my desire.” Desire will get you so far down the road before it fades. Your direction and desire, pushed by your discipline, will make you successful
While discipline has been on my mind for sometime, and I am always helping clients become more disciplined, a man who I look up to had a great blogpost today on discipline. Michael Hyatt is arguably the best leadership mentor that so many are following to learn and grow from. His blog post from today is one I am sharing with you because you, like me and so many more, need discipline in our lives.
You can read his post by clicking here.
Michael talks about discipline in so many areas of our life. My focus is personal finance. In any of the examples he gives, you can insert personal finance or any other desire you may have.
The key is getting disciplined to achieve.
In the area below, please share with others how discipline has helped you and/or what you are doing to be more disciplined going forward.
