If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed Discipline There’s nothing cute or easy or funny about discipline Especially when it comes to the subject of self-control If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day It will give you a small sense of pride And it will encourage you to do another task and another and another and by the end of the day that one task completed Will have turned into mini task completed Clean up your room! That’s a good start, organize your local landscape, schedule your time, start taking control of yourself Stop looking for the quantum leap and start looking for the daily discipline because that’s where the breakthrough lives When you make your bed You already have something done for the day You’ve already accomplished something and even though it’s small Just accomplishing one little thing can propel you to do the next thing and the next thing and the next thing But if you only plan your pleasure And you don’t ever plan on having any pain if you spend all your life trying to avoid everything that’s uncomfortable I can just tell you right now: you’re gonna have one wretchedly Miserable life.
You’re gonna be old and all you’re gonna have is regrets Ask yourself: ”Am I practicing self-discipline in my life? Am I doing the things that I should do because I need to do them, or am I kind of waiting to feel the moment?” The things that you do and that you don’t do are far more important than you think! We can do something extraordinary with our lives, and you need to discipline yourself every day! Greatness will cost you something not somebody else. It’ll cost you something It’s going to cost you some time. It’s going to cost you some energy. It’s going to cost you some Sacrifice. It’s going to cost you some resources It’s going to cost you some hours of your life laying down Paying the price going the extra mile doing what other people are not willing to do greatness is not cheap Greatness always cost more. That’s why there’s not many people who achieve greatness. They’re not willing to pay the price See a lot of people want want want want, but then they don’t use the discipline that they should.
Decide today That you’re going to discipline yourself When you have the discipline to do the things that you really don’t want to do you then earn the right to have the things you really want to have Self-discipline and being able to perform and being able to keep your life on schedule and being able to keep Commitments and promises and meet deadlines is essential to success Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right You’ll never be able to do the big things right and if by chance you have a miserable day You will come home to a bed that is made That you made and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better You just need to make a choice a choice that you’re gonna stop being bitter.
A choice that you’re gonna stop looking back, A choice that you are not going to waste one more day of your life feeling sorry for yourself And I know you may have issues in you, but you’re doing better than you think you are Somebody needs to know today. You’re gonna make it somebody needs to know today You’re doing all right you may not be what you ought to be But you’re not what you used to be and you’re gonna get there Don’t you give up don’t quit and don’t you keep putting yourself down you’re doing better than you think you are That is not how your story ends. Look again.
There’s another chapter There’s a new beginning You know just keep growing be disciplined be committed have heart be consistent If you get up and you just have no discipline whatsoever you get no value of anything. Your diets don’t work when you don’t do them, Exercise doesn’t work when you don’t do them Like what is the fire that stirs you that, that you wake up saying: ”I will do this even when I don’t feel like it I will do whatever it takes to overcome my temptation for mediocracy, my temptation for excuses, my temptation for reasons and circumstances to hold me back I won’t allow those to be in my way”. And if you have that within you you’ll achieve whatever you choose Nothing will be different Until I think differently. Nothing will be different until we think differently .
