[All You Need Is Self Discipline]

The other day I saw a post from the Fresh Prince himself Will Smith.

He was saying that people need more self discipline to gain their dream life, dream body, dream anything!

But is that true?

It’s not for ME.

Here’s why.

How many times has someone told you that you aren’t disciplined enough, you lack discipline or you need more self discipline?

How often did you apply more discipline?

How long did that discipline last?

Let’s look at the word discipline shall we...

Discipline comes from Old French descepline "discipline, physical punishment" and directly from Latin disciplina "instruction given, teaching, learning, knowledge," also sense of "treatment that corrects or punishes" is from notion of "order necessary for instruction."

To ME what that means is “instruction that corrects or punishes” or “making yourself do something you don’t particularly want to do”.

In that, you are either using discipline to correct something and/or to punish something.

Many of us have turned to our ‘friend’ discipline to help us achieve something.

Discipline CAN be an effective tool that CAN deliver.

But it WILL almost certainly force choice OUT of the picture!

Choice = freedom = happiness.

Isn’t it true that we all just want to be a little happier?

Would all the “stuff” matter if we were happier?

So for me, discipline makes NO sense.

Discipline REMOVES my choice.

Discipline REMOVES my freedom.

Discipline REMOVES my happiness.

And I like being happy 😊

Don’t you?

That’s just MY view, how do YOU see discipline?

Truth, Joy, Love
