Do You Need More Discipline?

"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment."

Jim Rohn: was an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker

I have recently read the book by Napoleon Hill: "Outwitting the Devil." He has an interview with the devil, in which the devil tells him that 98% of all people just exist. They don't live for anything, they have no goals, they have no passion. The devil maintains that all people who don't have goals and who don't live with passion belong to him. While I don't believe Napoleon Hill really had an interview with the devil, it does have a certain truth to it.

Do you have a goal? Do you set yourself a challenging goal and then rejoice when you reach your goal? Or do you just exist from day to day: Going to a job, earning a salary and paying all your debts?

While there is nothing wrong with having a job and earning a salary, you need some kind of goal. It could be saving for something. It could be starting your own business and seeing how much you can make that salary double.

In order to reach any goal, you need to write down the steps to get there, and then do what it takes. Too lazy? You won't reach your goal. Discipline is what you need to reach that goal. 

If you look at great athletes or pop stars, or any kind of "star" for that matter, they practice. They get up early and forego all the luxuries that keep the 98percenters from reaching their goals.

So if you really want something, you'll do what it takes to get it.

Write down your goal.

Then do the steps necessary to get to your goal.

Start doing it. 

If your goal is getting out of a job that you hate, and enjoying your life, start here: Create Your Future
