Having a vision is the base for starting and growing a business. The development of your vision is based upon your passion, and it should inspire you enough to motivate you each and every day.
It’s not enough to have a Vision, a Passion and a Why. Without discipline to make everything happen there is little chance of achieving everything you dreamed for.
Discipline is what drives Action; that means you are willing to do the things you don’t want to do when they need to be done. A good example was shared at one of my educational sessions. I asked those in attendance how they discipline themselves. The most memorable statement was: “I get out of bed in the morning as soon as the alarm goes off.”
It’s human nature to want to stay in bed, “Just a few more minutes”. This young man, a member of our BizQuack community, will reach his goals because he goes after them. Stop and think about that statement. Do you do what you need to do when you know you need to do it?
The key to discipline is not to get sidetracked by the challenges of your everyday life. Always remind yourself where you are going, and bring your vision of the future into the present.
Success just doesn’t happen. It’s all about choices and how you respond to every situation. Adapting a life of discipline will ultimately determine whether you end up living with abundance or living in poverty. The good news is that opportunity to change and to live a disciplined life is always there. It’s never too late to start.
