From Ideas To Action

Establish a new discipline when the idea strikes you, don’t wait, the right time is when it is hot and the emotion is strong… Everybody has heard about that saying that goes “If you can think it, you can achieve it, well not so fast…not necessarily… if you can think it, and act upon it, then you can achieve it…

Being disciplined requires you to develop the ability to take action, which means that you must be intentional about taking actionable steps towards your objective. You don’t need to rush, but you also don’t want to lose much time.

The time to act is when the idea strikes you, when it is hot and the emotion is strong, before the feeling passes and the idea fades.

If you don’t, you will fall into the faded intent trap.

A month from now, the passion will be cold, the emotional strength will have diminished, and chances are that a few months from now, it won’t be found, it will be forgotten. So take action…

Set up discipline when the excitement is high and your idea is clear, powerful and meaningful. You’ve got to take action, otherwise the wisdom is wasted.

The enthusiasm will soon pass, unless you apply it to a disciplined activity. Discipline enables you to capture the emotion, the wisdom and translate that into action, tangible results…

The greatest value of discipline is self-worth, also known as self-esteem (self-image). Because once we sense a lack of discipline within ourselves, it starts to erode our psyche.

Lack of self-discipline is also powerfully dangerous, so make the right choice or become a servant of a bad one.

One of the greatest temptations is to ease up just a little bit, is just easier, because it requires nothing. Instead of you doing your best, you allow yourself to do just a little less than your best, and you convince yourself that is OK, you would do more later, and just like that, sure enough, you’ve started, in the slightest way, to decrease your sense of self-worth.

There is a problem with even a little bit of slackness. Slackness starts as an infection. If you don’t take care of it, it becomes a disease—and like a wave, it will create another. Once this has happened, how can you regain your self-respect? So act now…

Start with the smallest discipline. Make the commitment: I will discipline myself to achieve my goals so that in the years ahead I can celebrate my successes.

Do something towards that goal/objective, daily, remember that when you establish a routine, it becomes discipline, and discipline will turn into behaviors.

The choice is yours, the power is in you, you truly have the greatest potential to achieve anything you want, if you truly want it bad enough, but it will not happen just because you think you deserve it, you must work for it, you must be intentional, you must have a purpose, you must establish the much needed self-discipline, and that means now…
