3 Steps to Leading a More Disciplined Life.

3 Steps to Leading a More Disciplined Life.

Motivation can be powerful for short term spurts of high intensity productivity.  Discipline, however, is the key to long term success.

Motivation is fickle and requires constant attention.  Discipline is reliable and becomes a way in which you lead your life.

What we’re lacking in the world isn’t sources of motivation—it’s self-discipline.

Type in “motivational video” into Google and you’ll get upwards of 13,000,000 results!  And I’ll be the first to admit that most of the videos are incredibly motivational!

When given the choice, instinctually speaking, we will choose cookies over push-ups.

Or Netflix over cardio.

Or social media over writing blogs.

Unless we learn learn the power of delaying gratification.

15 Quotes From The Road Less Traveled by Scott Peck

The Road Less Traveled
The Road Less Traveled is a deeply insightful, no bull, tell-you-what-you-need-to-hear book by Dr. Scott Peck that covers, what he believes to be, the attributes that make for a fulfilled person.

Dr. Peck references his life experience as a psychiatrist and divides his advice into four parts for fulfillment:  discipline, love, religion, and grace.

Below, you will find 15 of my favorite quotes from The Road Less Traveled that transcend the individual parts of the book and speak to his message as a whole.

Spend some time reading through these tid-bits of wisdom and reflect on how they might merge with your life’s (road less traveled) path.
