..and if you’re in love then you are the lucky one, because most of us are bitter over someone. Setting fire to our insides for fun, to destruct our hearts from ever missing them.
Are you really willing to sacrifice some of the things you like to do in order to get what you love? Partying EVERY weekend might be fun, but is it helping you live your dream? If it isn’t helping you live your dream, then why do it? If it isn’t helping you live the life you want to live, then why do it? In order to MOVE UP there’s something’s that you must be willing to give up. Discipline is not about saying NO to the things you hate, that’s easy. Discipline’s about saying NO to the things you like that don’t help you get the things you love. So if you’re saying you want a relationship, then why are you saying YES to the things that keep you single? If you you’re saying you want to be healthy, then why are you saying YES to the things that keep you out of shape? If you’re saying you want to be GREAT, then why are you saying YES to the things that keep you average? Success isn’t for the most talented, it’s for the most disciplined. It’s for the people who have tattooed their purpose on their heart, so EVERYTHING they do moves them closer to their dreams. You have to MASTER choosing the harder right than the easier wrong. You have to MASTER understanding what you want most is way more important than what you want now. You have to master saying NO to the things that don’t get you your YES. You can’t expect to STAND OUT, by doing things that make you fit in. Ask yourself this question, will this behavior(how I’m living my life right now), get me to the place where my accomplishments rest?
