“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most.” Abraham Lincoln

The desire to seek immediate gratification can be our mortal enemy. It drives us towards the comfortable choice. The safer option, or the compromise.

What we lack in those weak moments is discipline. Discipline is the willingness to stick to goals we set out to do. Emotions and conditions can tempt or sway us. Where our discipline can see the temptations for what they are and make the right decision.

This skill, as it truly is a skill, is one that we can practice and has been linked to being a critical component of success.

What our emotions drive us towards today, may very well be directly against what we want in the long run. So we must question them. Stacked side by side, here we need to choose. Which one do we want more? There can only be one.

“Seek not good from without; seek it within yourselves, or you will never find it.” Epictetus

When something goes right, we’re relatively quick to point to actions we took to get there. But when something goes wrong, it’s all too easy for us to do the opposite. To play the “blame game,” where we’re using external events as excuses.

A core tenant of mental toughness is responsibility. To accept that we played a role. But the purpose is not to blame ourselves or throw a pity party. The purpose is that it gives us options.

When we take responsibility and look within, we now are in control. We can focus on the moves to make to put ourselves into better positions. It opens our eyes to the path forward. If we do the opposite however, and blame the externals, we have surrendered control. We won’t have any control, as the story we’re telling ourselves is that outside events determine my path.

Responsibility is a weapon, and it only comes from within.

“Champions don’t blame the tools they’ve been given. Champions sharpen them.”

Abraham Lincoln once wrote that if he had six hours to cut down a tree, he would spend the first four sharpening the axe.

It doesn’t matter where you started, or even where you’ve been. All that matters is two questions; “Where do you want to go?” and “How hard are you willing to work to get there?” Everyone does. The separation comes down to who is willing to do the work.
Never whine.
Never complain.
Never make excuses.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Scott Adams

With a tiny sound, one that in and of itself might not even be noticiable. Shortly after the initial sound comes it’s echo. Still nothing enough to make anyone notice. This happens over and over until it impossible to ignore. This is called the “changing of the echos.” it starts with a single tiny noise Will we start one today?

“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” Dr. Suess

This quote is worth reading twice. We are creatures of habit. We enjoy our routines. From the morning rituals, to the way we warm up for a workout, to our regimented diets and food plans.

Although dialing in the routine is a great thing, it’s important that we remind ourselves to “Keep our eyes open.” What Dr. Suess’s quote alludes to is an open mind. Even when we feel we’ve found exactly what works for us, we must resist the urge to close our eyes and ears to new ideas.

There is so much to learn, experience, and challenge ourselves with. That is, if we only keep our eyes open to do so.

Always a student.
