Self-discipline is not self-punishment. It is self-respect.
It is you living in harmony with your highest goals and values. It is the heart of personal development—the bridge between where you are now and where you want to be.
Self-discipline is choosing yourself, and respecting that choice. It’s acting in harmony with your goals, not your moods; your decisions, not your emotions; your aspirations, not your desires.
No amount of talent, money, knowledge or self-help hacks can compensate for lack of self-discipline. And in this world of distractions and instant gratification, even a little bit of it goes a long way.
Self-discipline is not self-denial; it is self-affirmation. It is a tool that serves your best interests. It empowers you to live a life true to yourself. Self-discipline is self-respect.
The result of a life lived with self-discipline is fulfillment. The result of one lived without it is regret.
