The dictionary definition of discipline states “the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behaviour, using punishment to correct disobedience.” This definition sounds very punitive and explains why I have always had a problem with the word discipline. However, I have learnt that without discipline in my business I tend to be all over the place and achieve very little.
“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” Jim Rohn
I can’t disagree with Jim Rohn, which is why I am very conscious of the results I get with and without discipline. What has made a difference is that I have entered several challenges online and the discipline that is required to complete the challenges has strengthened that muscle and I have not had to experience the pain of regret.
