Discipline: Remembering What You Want

“Discipline is remembering what you want.” –Jim Rohn

Remembering that I want to look good with my shirt off allows me to be disciplined in my eating.

Remembering that I want to be in the best shape I can be in forces me to work out at 6 a.m. everyday.

Remembering that I am going to run a marathon in November forces me to tackle my long runs.

Remembering that I want to become the best I can be forces me to spend an hour a day on personal growth.

Remembering that I want to be an author allows me to have the discipline to write every day.

Remembering that I want to get promoted allows me to be disciplined and focused at work.

Remembering I want to build a great youth ministry allows me to discipline myself to do the work necessary!

Remembering that I want to have the best relationship ever with Laura allows me to be disciplined about having a date night every week.

Remembering that I want to be as close to God as I can be, causes me to spend time with Him daily.

Remembering my financial goals allows me to be disciplined with my money and to look for more opportunities to make more money!

What are your dreams? What do you want to accomplish? Whatever they are, it will take a lot of discipline to get there. The only way to stay disciplined on a consistent basis for the long haul is to remind yourself of what you want.

Keep your goals and dreams in front of you. Review them daily. Make a list of things you need to do daily to get closer to those goals. Once you start living a disciplined life, in just a short period time you will start achieving more of your goals and dreams than you ever have before.

Remember what you want. Be disciplined.
