Self discipline – A bridge to Greatness

At the heart of any successful person, is self-discipline. Whether it’s success in their personal lives or their professional lives, self-discipline is key to success in everything. There is a price to everything in life and self-discipline is one big price that will get you what you want.

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “With self- discipline most anything is possible.” Jim Rohn claimed “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” And Robert Kiyosaki asserted that “Confidence comes from discipline and training.”

Self-discipline can likened to a bag package needed to go on a trip. In that bag, everything needed for the trip will be there. Self-discipline carries essential things we need to succeed in life. In our love relationship, personal relationships with people, business or career, goals and desires, self-discipline is the bridge to success.

Self-discipline is what makes you do right instead of wrong, it’s what makes you stand firm even when there are lots of temptations. Inside self-discipline there is hard work, commitment, determination, endurance, self-control, respect, honesty and many more life changing attributes.

If self-discipline is lacking in ones life, motivations and inspirations can be useless. Self-discipline fuels your energy to act on the inspiration you receive. When you have a goal to achieve, you will know that there are things to be done to get to the goal. Many at times we let go on goals that would have make us great in life because we feel tired, lazy or lost. When there is self-discipline, it fuels you to keep going until you achieve your dreams.

… I think self-discipline is something, it’s like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. – Daniel Goldstein

Like I use to say, nothing good comes easy and for every great life, there is a great challenge. So, self-discipline is a key player in all this. Right from the beginning of the world there have been people who through self-discipline enjoy the best out of life. In our world today, many are living their dream because of self-discipline. To be great, you must have the will to be.

Successful people in every field are often said to be “blessed with talent” or even just lucky. But the truth is, many worked harder than the average person can even imagine. From athletes like Michael Jordan, also Cristiano Ronaldo to executives like Howard Schultz, these people are known for waking up early and working toward a goal while other people are still in bed, and staying later than everyone else too.

All this might not sound new but as old as it is, it’s still taking people to greater heights in life. I will make it as simple as this… Get self-discipline, get greatness.

Thanks for your time. I’m glad.

  1. As I sat dreaming about my chances of success

    I stumbled upon a topic that could lead me to the crest

    A topic my teacher was bent on making me learn

    So that could, with ease let success be churned…

    Discipline is what my teacher stressed on…

    A word that could let me make up for the time that was gone

    Be it in academic or sports or any other field…

    There are countless benefits a confident mind could yield…

    A confident mind is the product of disciplined approach…

    That, through months of hardwork, let the mind be coached…

    Discipline in school plays an important role

    In turning us into responsible citizens on the whole…

    Discipline at home makes our parents shower on us praise.

    Relieved they are to see that there is no need to mend our ways

    Indeed, discipline and obediance often go together…

    They help us to reach out to success in times of bad weather.

    I now realise why my teacher scolds us for being naughty

    If we are disciplined now, we shall be successful before forty.

    Today, I am trying to be disciplined in each and every step.

    Come tomorrow, I shall thank my teachers for turning me into the best.
