The key word of the week: Self-Discipline

Since we are little kids, we are taught to obey authorities. We need to fulfill parent’s orders, teacher’s commands, and bosses ´s wishes. We are demanded by our surround all the time in order not to be punished. So, we act everyday for “them”.

However, nobody teaches us to obey our own personal orders, commands and wishes. When we realize what we want and that we can get what we want, the demands are not from the outside but the inside. We are not anymore disciplined because of them; on the other hand, we are disciplined because of us. It is much better do something because we want to do it than someone else expects you to do it. Self discipline is an inner fire. We act because we want, we wish and we desire. I do not obey anyone else, just only me…

Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement, but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Jim Rohn

Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
Elie Wiesel

I am indeed a king, because I know how to rule myself.
Pietro Aretino
