Before looking at how to use discipline to carry us forward, a few moments can be given over to considering the source of our discipline. In the first instance our discipline draws energy from the compelling goals we have set for ourselves.
Motivated to accomplish a precise objective, we have most likely identified actions and habits aligned to this purpose. Discipline comes into being through studying, training and practice. Developing habits beneficial to our life is an ongoing activity and a discipline in itself.
In terms of how to use discipline to carry us forward, we might wish to think about the power focused repetition provides. During those invariable tough moments when attempting to achieve this or that, discipline keeps us on course.
Rather than pondering discipline as an automatic element, perhaps it is a measured response to a specific requirement. Furthermore, it is discipline which may carry us forward in the face of criticism or even praise.
