When people talk behind your back, remember they’re exactly where they belong…behind you.
You can’t let what other people say behind your back affect you. I know at times it can be hurtful but you have to be strong. People will say things about you to try to bring you down to their level. The thing is when they talk about you it only takes them farther down. Separate yourself from those that have nothing better to do than try to bring you down. You’re better than that. You are a Champion. When they see that what they are saying doesn’t affect you the way they want it to; then they will go on to someone else. Also, don’t get caught up in listening to these people talk about other people. Know that if they are talking about others, chances are they are talking about you too. Be the person you were created to be, not what someone else tries to make you out to be. No, you’re not perfect but none of us are. We all have made mistakes and made bad decisions, but you have greatness inside you. Get back up and keep moving forward. Leaving those back talkers farther and farther behind.

Wanting something won’t get you anywhere.
People are always wanting, but far too few are actually doing something. I have heard it said that, people need more backbone not wishbone. There is no doubt about it. The thing that often stops people is the start. You have to start in order to finish. Also, your start is important. How you start will have a major impact on how you finish. Let’s move from wanting to doing. There is still so much to be done in making a difference in the world, we can’t afford to wait any longer. It’s time to begin now. Don’t waste anymore of your life. It’s time to start living the life you were created to live. No more sitting on the sidelines, time to get in the game. Are you ready to go from wanting to doing?

Develop the dedication and self-discipline that you need to power through the grind it takes to succeed.
For a long time I was one that wanted to be successful, help people, and make a difference. However, I wanted to do it all in one week. Like many people I didn’t want to wait. I wanted to be at the top of my game overnight. I see this in many people today. The problem is, if you get the top overnight, you won’t stay there very long. We need to experience and wisdom that comes from the dedication and self-discipline it takes to be the best. Being the best at being you is a daily grind type of thing. It takes working daily at being the best. You have to sharpen the ax if you want to cut wood. What I mean by that is; you have to daily work on your gift. Study, reading, listening to podcast or books to learn more about what you do. Set you mind to doing what it takes to be your best and the results will come. Be dedicated to it and have the self-discipline to carry it out. You got what it takes to be a difference maker. Are you ready to sharpen your ax?

Many people can be confused about the value and importance of discipline because they think of the world in a negative context.
What do you think of when you hear the word; discipline? Unfortunately, most think of being punished or some other negative thoughts. Punishment is negative, but discipline is a positive thing. Without discipline you will never fulfill your destiny or reach your goals. Discipline doesn’t come easy and during the process isn’t comfortable. It is the results of discipline that are good. Losing weight requires discipline. Writing a book, sharpening your talent/gift requires discipline. No one ever said exercising discipline in your life wold be fun, but it is worthwhile. If you are lacking discipline in your life; then today is the day to begin to change. Take an area that you need to make some positive changes in and then add the discipline that you have untapped inside of you. You can do this! You have what it takes. Are you ready to exercise discipline in your life today?

Discipline is attempt to change one’s behavior. Punishment is a negative consequence for wrong behavior.
People oftentimes use discipline interchangeable with punishment. However, there is a major difference between the two. When you are disciplined you know why you are being disciplined. There is a positive result that comes from the discipline. Punishment, on the other hand, doesn’t have a positive result, nor do you know why you are being punished. The same thing may be used in discipline or punishment, but the reasons for and why are totally different. When you want to change a behavior, whether your own or someone else’s, in a positive, learning way; the discipline is your best avenue. Punishment, in most cases, does not change the behavior. But make it even worse because the intention wasn’t to change the behavior in the first place. Discipline will make you a better person, punishment will make you a bitter person. Are you a discipline minded or punishment minded person?

I believe the best things in life are a result of discipline. When I operate from that perspective, disciplining myself to achieve gets easier.

For some people “discipline” is a bad word. However, without discipline you will never experience the life you desire. You will have momentary pleasure, but you will forfeit lasting fulfillment. When you experience the awesomeness of archiving a goal through discipline, it does get easier to discipline yourself in more areas. There are many people that never make the move to discipline themselves and they never have the life they really desire. Those are the people that go through life complaining and making excuses for not achieving. Be a person of discipline today. Start making conscious decisions that will lead you into a disciplined lifestyle. You will have fun, there is far more fun and enjoyment in a life that is disciplined. There is far less regret. Take your life to another level by being a disciplined guided life. Are you living a disciplined life today?
