Discipline

What do you think of when you hear the word discipline? Do you think of a child being disciplined? Maybe a puppy being disciplined after going in the house? What about the military? That’s what I have always thought of. A line up of soldiers with a perfectly pressed uniform, shiny black shoes, clean shaven. I’ve always admired members of the military for going through the rigorous training and discipline required to serve our country. In this post I want to talk about discipline as it relates to training oneself to do something in a controlled and habitual way,...

Would you rather be hit by a pea that is moving 50 miles per hour or a baseball? Which do you think has more momentum? Think of a snowball that is rolling down a hill.

Purpose

When you wake up in the morning, what do you do? Do you start getting ready for work? Do you assist your kids getting them ready for school? Maybe you are getting ready for school. Regardless of what we do, there’s some purpose behind what we are doing. Your purpose drives your action. Is your purpose to earn money? What do the actions look like? What does it take to get you into position to earn money? Maybe something like this: Wake up. Eat. Shower. Get dressed. Pack a lunch. Get in your car. Drive to work. Walk in the door. (At...
