I'm writing to you coming from just finishing up legs and sprints for today. My new fitness coach is working me hard for the first week, and brought something up for me that I really want to share with you.
If you've had any issues staying disciplined, [maybe there's a goal that you want] whether it's a health goal, nutrition, fitness, business income, professional - any of those things, and it requires discipline.
It requires consistency.
It requires dedication.
While, personally, I have been allergic to the word discipline. I feel like I worked so hard to have the freedom that I have to leave my nine to five to create my own business, to create my own thriving business. Why would I want to go back to the discipline and regiment that I worked so hard to escape from?
I found that without the discipline there has been some inconsistency and I just don't like that feeling either. I don't like the feeling of inconsistent results and inconsistent outcomes.
This morning I learned that the word discipline comes from the word disciple. So the question is, what are you a disciple of?
That just changed everything for me.
Being a disciple of something means, to me, being a part of a community of something. I'm willingly being a part of something that's going to better me and my life and the dreams that I have for myself and what I want to give to others.
If you've been resistant to the word discipline, you don't like the word discipline, see it now as the word disciple. Ask yourself what you want to be a disciple of.
I love you. I hope you have a great day. I'll talk to you soon.
