Self-Discipline

When you act with integrity, you strengthen yourself. When you violate your integrity, you weaken yourself.
– Mark Wright

Get ready to strengthen yourself and stand for what you believe is right.

“It doesn’t seem like self-restraint would increase your confidence but it does. Think about it for a moment: what would your life be like if you gave in to every urge that came into your head? You’d be living on shaky ground, knowing your life could fall off the rails at any moment. You wouldn’t be able to rely on commitments you’ve made to yourself. It would destroy your confidence in yourself. In contrast, when you can restrain yourself, you—instead of your urges— are in the driver’s seat. You control your choices. This gives you a sense of confidence that the most important things in your life aren’t going to be sacrificed on a whim, or because an urge suddenly seizes hold of you.”
– Barry Michels, Phil Stutz

“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
