Discipline in ACTION is consistency…
- of action.
- with values.
- of method.
- with long term goals.
- with performance standards.
- over time.
TRUE discipline requires the independence of mind to reject pressures to conform [even from the unconscious mind] in ways incompatible with values, of performance standards and long term aspirations. The only form of discipline is SELF discipline; having the INNER WILL to do whatever is takes to create a great outcome no-matter-how-difficult. To achieve this objective you must be utterly relentless, unbending in your focus on your quest.
You are right in not over-reacting to events, succumb to what you may have done in the past, or leap for alluring “convenient” opportunities. For that I applaud you!
