Self Discipline – Success demands it.
IF SELF DISCIPLINE IS NOT ONE OF YOUR PERSONALITY TRAITS – ACQUIRE IT FAST
If you have an aversion to work, discipline and commitment, go find a comfy couch, put the TV back on, grab a beer, and hope for the next infomercial promising overnight success, as long as you have access to credit card. We have been socialized to believe in fairy tale endings found in movies or novels. For example, people quit running after the 8th day because they are still overweight. People stop practicing piano after 6 months because they’ve only mastered chop sticks. People quit building a business after 90 days because they are not disciplined and want instant results.
SMALL SMART CHOICES (behaviors) + CONSISTENCY (daily) + TIME (commitment) = RADICAL DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS
SUCCESS STARTS WITH YOUR PHILOSOPHY ** THE WAY YOU THINK
Your philosophy (the way you think) creates your attitude, your actions & your results and that creates your life. You may have heard “Do the thing and you shall have the power” – Ralph Waldo Emerson or “Just Do It” – Nike
There are 2 types of prevalent attitudes: Which one do you have?
1) Entitled Attitude: What have you done for me lately? Pay me more, then maybe I’ll work harder.
2) Value – Driven Attitude: What can I do to help you? I’ll work harder, and then I EXPECT you will pay me more
