Do you want to have fun so much in your life that you have given up on the idea of commitment and follow through – because the work has gotten boring or frustrating? It was Zig Ziglar who said, “It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.”
Many struggle with the perseverance factor. Discipline, keeps us on track, resisting distractions, not allowing ourselves to be blown about with every new thing or idea that comes along. This is one of those virtues that I personally struggle with, being interested in many different issues affecting families and children.
In the past I have called it growth and evolution – but sometimes I wonder if it is that or if it is a lack of discipline. Recently I looked at this issue again and have refocused my efforts on the family. What is the one thing that you are focused on that requires your commitment and discipline to reach your goal? Whatever it may be – You and I have the practice of self-discipline and the self control to make wise choices.
