All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today and yesterday—
You become the way you design your life. The more you love yourself the better will you work on your intrinsic strengths and weaknesses. Discipline is the strongest form of self— love. It is loving yourself enough to give yourself everything you have ever wanted. Discipline of mind body and spirit is to key to success in all spheres of our lives. At the highest level, it takes us close to God. Can any one of us deny discipline as unnecessary or worthless?
Discipline is akin to cleanliness and order. Would you work at a desk that is cluttered with files and papers that have neither been dusted nor put away in proper order? Or would you prefer to begin work each morning at a desk which has been cleared away by you the previous evening and has been wiped and dusted early in the morning and awaits the next day’s work.
A student who is set on clearing competitive exams like NEET, JEE, GMAT goes through hours and hours of rigorous preparations every day; he learns to become more analytical and logical in his approach; he gives up trivial pursuits like roaming around with friends and watching TV,NETFLIX until his chosen goal is accomplished. Here self – discipline becomes spontaneous allowing you to become more energetic, more effective to achieve your dreams.
If you truly want to get things done in your life that until now you have not been able to do, get up an hour earlier each day. This will give you an extra 365 hours each year to do what is important to you. To maintain your physical fitness, to learn new skills, one must schedule the activities retaining the goal in mind.
Self-discipline is a way of enhancing the value of your life. It brings about peace ,order, perfection and self- fulfillment in your life. It enables us to cultivate virtues like hard work, patience and dedication. It breathes a new life into you transforming your negative emotions into a usable form of energy.
