Self Discipline


One of the almost dying virtues today is self-discipline. It’s hard (almost impossible) for many of us to be self-disciplined in-spite of knowing its many benefits in life…

If you are disciplined about your every-day diet, you will most probably be endowed with good health;
If you are disciplined about your exercise, you will most probably be bestowed with a great appearance;
If you are disciplined about reading, you will probably be knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects;
If you are disciplined about meditation, you will probably be self-aware and able to achieve a different level in life;
If you are disciplined about your savings and investments, you will most probably be able to generate wealth;
If you are disciplined in your studies, you will most probably get good grades;
If you are disciplined at work, you will most probably be able to achieve professional success – at least over a period of time;
If you are disciplined about your every day routine, you will most probably be able to find time to do the things that you want, you love…
If you are disciplined about your goals in life, you will most probably be able to achieve them;

Some say it’s boring to be disciplined
Some say it’s not worth it to be disciplined
Some say it’s monotonous to be disciplined
Some say they don’t have time for discipline
Some say they are born disciplined
Some say they were made disciplined
Some say they are not born to be disciplined
Some say they were born to discipline others
Some say it takes a lot of time to be disciplined
Some say it’s being hard on yourself to be disciplined
Some say it takes then away from what they want to do now…
Some say there are no instant benefits [& it is the age of instant everything] in being disciplined

And I say …Self-discipline is a great asset.. 
One which is an important investment today for a secure, better, happier and brighter tomorrow… 
Definitely worthwhile to start building this asset from NOW!!

  1. Most often Self Discipline is misconstrued for not enjoying life or appearing too strict/serious.

    We have seen our grandfathers practicing this and leading a complete self-fulfilled life, may be very difficult to follow in our self gratification generation of i- pads, etc

    This is the single most virtue we can pass on to your kids
