Hello everyone! Trust your weekend is going great? It’s never easy to have a strawberry cake in front of you and desire a glass of hot water instead. Yeah, I know the feeling 😀. The level of discipline I have would be questioned today. I’ve got a wedding and I will be doing lots of cooking and baking and so, the countdown to my calorie increase is about to begin😀😀. I hope not!
Speaking of discipline, according to George Washington ” Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable, procures success to the weak and esteem to all”. The very thought of being disciplined makes some people cringe, but I believe discipline is one of the most important character traits a person can have. Without discipline, we miss much of the enjoyment life has to offer, but when we discipline ourselves and live disciplined lives, we have the time, energy and resources to enjoy today and embrace tomorrow. The truth is, I believe disciplined people feel better about themselves than those who are undisciplined.
When I think of undisciplined people, I think of those who want ” the perks without the works”.r In other words, they want all the benefits that life has to offer, but they do not want to do the work or make the effort required to gain those advantages. Then, they often become jealous of those who do enjoy life’s blessings, not realising that they were the ones willing to make the investments and exercise the discipline needed for those perks.
All kinds of blessings are available to you, and I do not want you to miss a single one through lack of discipline. If you consider yourself a disciplined person, this article can help you improve and expand your good habits. If you are a person who rolls your eyes at the thoughts of being disciplined, I challenge you to adopt a new attitude right now.
Don’t see discipline as difficult, but look at it as a means to blessings, peace, fun, and great enjoyment in life. See discipline as a good friend who would help you be what God wants you to be and not as an enemy. God has already given us the spirit of discipline ( you can see it in 2 Timothy 1:7), but we must choose whether to use it or not. In 2 Corinthians, the Bible states that the love of Christ constrains us. In other words, we discipline ourselves not to earn Gods blessings, but because we love him.
Practise discipline today and watch yourself grow beyond every limitation. Have a great weekend!
Love and Blessings
