Major Cause of Failure Number 5:
Lack of self-discipline. Discipline comes through self-control. This means that one must control all negative qualities. Before you can control conditions, you must first control yourself. Self-mastery is the hardest job you will ever tackle. If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self. You may see at one and the same time both your best friend and your greatest enemy, by stepping in front of a mirror.

What do you see when you look in a mirror? A while ago I heard someone talking about how each one of us has the potential of an ox inside of us that is disciplined and strong to plow the fields and gain a harvest. And we have the potential of a donkey inside of us as well. The donkey is stubborn and set in it’s way, not willing to work too hard.
Which one are you feeding? The disciplined, powerful ox, or the stubborn, lazy donkey? If you hear a lot of hee-haws, you might be feeding the donkey… #31WarningSigns
Those goals are worth it. Be disciplined towards your goals. Walk through them with someone that will enable both of you to help keep each other disciplined until you gain your desired harvest. Again…those goals are worth it.
On with your day people! And remember…
Go. Grow. Give.
