"Discipline is remembering what you want."
~David Campbell ~
In our culture, the concept of discipline gets a bad wrap. We think of it as punishment instead of corrective training, which is the actual meaning of the word as defined by Websters. An undisciplined life is like an undisciplined child: both unpleasant and out-of-control. Plus, if we have no self-discipline, we miss important opportunities for progress and well-being.
It's discipline that keeps us doing the next right thing instead of the next easy thing, and discipline that reminds us that tomorrow lies before us and we cannot live for the reckless impulse of this moment only. It's discipline that grounds us and discipline that creates and maintains the foundation of our good health. So let's embrace it, and stop resisting it as something taboo. We need it, and so does our world.
I live consciously, and with care.
