Here’s what Chuck has to say on discipline…
“Discipline is one of the most hated terms of our times . . . right alongside patience and self-control. But have you noticed how often it comes up in the testimonies of those who win?
Here are key uses of discipline:
- No runner completes the training or a race without it.
- No weight-loss program is maintained without it.
- No human body is kept fit without it.
- No mind is sharpened without it.
- No temptation is overcome without it.
If you want to put a stop to mediocrity, to replace excuses with fresh determination and procrastination with tough-minded perseverance, you need discipline. Winners know that disciplined persistence must be a major part of their training. That’s the only way victory becomes an attainable reality rather than a distant dream.”
The undisciplined is a headache to himself and a heartache to others, and is unprepared to face the stern realities of life. (WheatonCollege Bulletin)
I hope you take something out of this just as I have as Chuck challenges us today.
I pray that you my dear reader will rise to meet the challenges of today and with strength from above, I pray you conquer and succeed in all you do. Have a good day today. God bless! You are in my thoughts.
