A Disciplined Life

  • Success is actually a short race—a sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.
  • When you discipline yourself, you’re essentially training yourself to act in a specific way. Stay with this long enough and it becomes routine—in other words, a habit.
  • You can become successful with less discipline than you think, for one simple reason: success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right
  • The trick to success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it.
