Discipline is Key to Everything (video)

January 23, 2012

Transcription of the video:

I’ve got something for you.  Listen to this.  Wrong standards equals wrong measurement, wrong measurement equals wrong results.  You don’t say “Ilang kilo ba itong lupang ito?”  Once you start with that one you’ll gonna end up messing the whole thing, right?  So my next question now is what is your standard for success?  Is it money?  Is it accomplishment?  You know what?  The way to getting successful is to get the right standards of values, righteousness, doing things correctly.  And all of these things require discipline.  Discipline is the very platform where you get things done.  In other words, one of the best descriptions I have for the word discipline is simply two words: delaying gratification.  You control what gratifies you and you go through the chores of doing the things you may not like doing but you got to do it anyway.  And then once you’ve done it, you enjoy the gratification later on.  Discipline is key to winning.  Discipline is key in relationships building.  Discipline is key to practically everything.

    I saw a CNN interview with the CEO of Nissan-Renault yesterday and he is saying the same thing.

    I remember this one when i got out of a drug rehab. I remember it very well what he said about this one. When your Higher Power say’s yes it is because you need it right there and then. When Higher power says wait you can have it later in life you dont need it now. When your higher says “No” it does not mean your are denied, it meant to have something better.
