further once the effort gets painful is
the person who will win.”
Big wins in our lives don’t usually come easily, or everyone would have them all the time.
But that’s a mistake we all make when we see others score a victory. We see the victory but not the work that went into it.
One thing that successful people have is discipline. That’s part of the hard work, making yourself work when you don’t feel like it.
Bob Proctor wrote a book, “Born Rich,” which he later turned into a seminar and audio/video program.
He wrote the book while he was working full time. He told me that he got up a half hour earlier each morning, got a cup of coffee, and wrote for 30 minutes. Then he went to work.
It took him a year to write the book. Do you think he always wanted to get up and write? But he did it whether he felt like it or not. That’s discipline.
As our quote says, the ability to press on when quitting would be easy is the mark of the winner.
If you organize your life so that you’re usually working on things that are important to you, your dreams and goals, you’ll find that being disciplined is easier. Not easy, just easier.
