Discipline

According to Plato, "Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”

If there is a single element for ensuring success, that element can be summed up in one word: discipline. Discipline, by its very nature, runs opposing to the human nature, which gravitates towards indiscipline and carelessness.

To be disciplined, we must ‘drill’ into our habits that will cause us to obey thoughts and take actions that will lead us towards our desired objectives. To ‘drill’ the right habits into our mind, we must bring under control all thoughts and actions that prevent us from moving in the right direction.
But this is easier said than done. Discipline has more to do with ‘action’ than ‘talk’. No amount of positive affirmations or motivational and hidden tapes and seminars will make us disciplined. Anyone can set desired goals and have the motivation to achieve those goals.

However, only discipline can ‘take’ you to your goal. This may mean working consistently for long hours; doing tasks that you would rather not do, but which are essential in the attainment of your goals; foregoing or putting on hold current comforts and pleasures, etc.

None of us is born with inherent discipline. Discipline is acquired through training. We must train ourselves to take the right action at the right time and in the right way.
The keyword here is ‘training’, which implies that discipline is learned. But what makes this ‘training’ unconventional and more challenging than other conventional forms of training is because it must be drilled at the thought level.

It is in the area of thoughts that behaviours are born, and which in turn lead us to act in one way and not the other. If we can have die right thoughts, then we will behave in the right way and take the right actions.It is the latter aspect of this process that will determine whether we are disciplined or undisciplined; whether we succeed or fail.

Nearly all successful people, especially the self-made super wealthy, can attest to the importance of discipline in the attainment of goals.

They stepped out of the ‘comfortable’ and ‘convenient’ and ‘trained’ their mind to take the right actions. To do this, they chose to ‘disobey the part of their mind that told them to ‘take it easy and let it be’ and ‘obeyed’ the part of their mind that insisted that they ‘take the right action’. They did not just make decisions; they acted on those decisions.

Discipline is ‘knowing’ what to do and ‘doing’ it. It is not the ‘knowing’ that gets you there; it is the ‘doing’! Discipline requires an immense sense of control and self-restraint.

The good news is that it can be acquired and inculcated through learning. It may take hard work and patience, but in the end, its rewards are not only fulfilling, but also very enriching. - shareyouressays.com
