Discipline is essential, but it’s not the key

Good news bad news
The good news is “you’re good”. The bad new is, “you’re good.”

 

Discipline is essential, but it’s not the key.

 

Here it is unpacked…

 

Yesterday morning the coach said, “You know what i’m insanely great at?”

The CEO asked, “What?”

“Discipline”, the coach exclaimed.

The CEO laughed and said, “Absolutely.”

Much later that day, as i crawled into bed i thought, “It isn’t discipline that’s the key, it’s vision.”

If you have a vision that’s clear, concise, and compelling and lights your fire, you’ll fnd a way.

When your vision is as powerful as your next breath, you’ll develop the discipline you need.

This then becomes a skill you can scale as you grow in your roles and responsibilities.

The worth and the danger of a habit

Disney Speakers
Heading past the city limits.

 

The worth and the danger of a habit is explained here from this unknown author’s writing:

•  •  •

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.

I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.

I am at your command.

Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me, for I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.

I am easily managed; just be firm with me.

Those who are great, I have made great.

Those who are failures, I have made failures.

I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a machine and the intelligence of a person.

You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.

Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.

Lead me. Reward me.

And I will then do it automatically.

I am your servant.

Who am I?

I am a habit.

Learning to be what you’re not

Inspirational quote
Great scripts are only written – and read – by the willing.

 

When we can’t be what we want to be, we learn to be what we’re not.

Please be careful with the scripts you read to yourself (over and over).

The wrong script changes everything.

The good news?

The right script also changes everything.

Having a vibrantly positive attitude and a line you can’t cross

sidewalk biking near Walt Disney World
Couple days ago, biking to gym (habit), next to (Resort linens) Walt Disney World’s Textile Service Plant.

 

Every thing costs something.

Vibrancy comes with a price.

Spoiler alert…consistency.

Having a vibrantly positive attitude and a line you can’t cross.

You can’t cross a line and say, “Today i’m not gonna focus on being positive.”

The key to vibrancy is consistency.

Rhythm.

Habit.

Simple.

Difficult at first.

Once mastered, habit.

Habits are easy.

Dear Son

The mind sees what it wants to see

vision
Spotted this in a parking lot and immediately interpreted it as “VISION”.

 

The mind sees what it wants to see.

We train it to think a certain way, over the course of our life.

The past few weeks, i’ve been helping some folks commit to a vision that’s clear, concise, and compelling.

They’re making progress.

Not nearly as fast as they’d like, but nothing worthwhile magically falls from the sky.

And just to clarify those lucky breaks that sometimes happen; luck favors the prepared.
