Discipline is often interpreted with a negative meaning and consequence. Training that produces obedience, often in the form of rules and punishment if they are disobeyed. However, discipline and more importantly self-discipline need not be negative and can be the catalyst for major success.

A goal often starts with a thought, which will lead to action, however many will stumble right there without discipline.  Why? Because the thought in and of itself is great however without action and discipline will fizzle into obscurity never to be executed. It has been said that the richest place on earth is the graveyard. Why? 

Because it is where you will find all the hopes, dreams and ideas that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never created, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone lacked the discipline to follow through.

Self-discipline is the key to personal greatness. It is the magic quality that opens doors and increases opportunities. With self-discipline, the average person can rise as far and as fast as their talents and intelligence can take them. But without self-discipline, a person blessed with a good foundation, education and opportunity will seldom rise above average. 

Each of us on our quest to achieve the goal, the dream, the vision must develop the discipline of right thinking, followed up by the right action. When we flip the switch and determine that failure is not an option, we soon come to realise that self-discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.

Self-discipline is the magic power that makes us virtually unstoppable. Self-discipline is at the centre of the universe for success. Self-discipline is doing within while we're doing without. What that means is when our friends are begging us to hang out and we say no because we're way too busy working hard to put ourselves in a position to win in the game of life.
