Success Through Discipline
With each great accomplishment in one’s life there is discipline. Today we witness this in all human endeavor. In the field of sports we see this repeated time and time again. Great athletes spend altogether their time practicing and make sacrifices which others are not willing to make.
The same is true in all enterprises. Most often we see only what they accomplish, but as in all cases we see that they had put in a lot of sacrifices and discipline. Those who have created or discovered new products and accomplishments have said that they owe all their success to discipline.
Discipline is the prowess, where having dictated where we want to go or what we would like to create or discover, we stick with our goals and stand by them with whatever disadvantages until we reach the goal.
We can come up with numerous applications of discipline in our lives; from doing homework to building up physical fitness. Whenever we look carefully at the points of failure in our lives, we will see that in just about all juncture when we failed it was due to the lack of discipline. Therefore, both in the areas of success through discipline and the lack of success through lack of discipline, there are many instances for us to look up to.
To lived a life with discipline can offer us, first we have to be sure of what we want and of how badly we would like to attain it. If one is obsessed with wanting to succeed in a certain realm, the chances of attaining that is so much more certain. To do this, one has to dwell on the want through visualizing it happening.
Next, we must determine what has to be done to attain that want. This will come naturally if one’s want is a sincere and serious one. Thus if a man wants to join the national hockey league, he must really want to and if he does, he would know what he has to do to get there.
The same thing applies if one wants to write a article to promote your product and service, or start an online business working from home. The final step is the discipline to do and keep doing what must be done until the results appear.
One great example is the story of Colonel Saunders. The 65 year graybeard gentleman from Kentucky, who had a dream to start a chain of fried chicken restaurants worldwide, to realize that dream, he knew that he needed to partner with someone to open the first restaurant and to fry chicken according to his secret recipe. Colonel Saunders knocked on 1008 doors before he found a restaurant owner willing to share his dream.
That was success through the power of discipline!
