Self-Discipline - Control Your Thoughts and Actions.

When you’re working on a challenging goal, you can get distracted by things that are easier and more fun. Close off appealing options and you’ll achieve the results you want. 

How do you respond when you feel conflicted about what you SHOULD do vs. what you WANT to do?
"Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself." - Abraham Heschel, American theologian
"In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves... self-discipline with all of them came first." - Harry Truman, American president
"It's easy to say 'no!' when there's a deeper 'yes!' burning inside." - Stephen Covey, American author

"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment."
- Jim Rohn, American author
