“Self Discipline or Regret”
This week I want to share with you about self discipline or the regret.
I came upon this quote by Jim Rohn: “We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.” Another quote he said puts things in balance: “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.“
Here’s my take on it all: I’m actually very self disciplined. If I want something bad enough, I go after it 100% and don’t give up until I figure out how to accomplish getting it. Maybe you can relate? However, its harder for me to balance my lifestyle out (while I’m so driven) so that I can “enjoy the ride”. I tend to work more than I should and it’s harder for me to “kick” myself out of my office and get up and do something like exercise or just relax and have fun. The thing is, if I don’t, then I end up getting a sour attitude because I’m not enjoying my life. So I really appreciate Jim Rohns wisdom here to help me balance out my life and my expectations. Some goals can take years to achieve (like becoming successful earning online), so making sure you feel happy in the meantime is really important!
On the other hand, if you have a hard time being self disciplined, you can end up on the other side of the spectrum and not get anywhere with your dreams and get stuck in a rut, wondering to yourself when things will ever get better for you. The thing is, if you don’t work at it, nothing will happen. You may be generally happy with your life but at the same time unhappy that things are not changing. On top of this, the pain of regret is much heavier than the pain of self discipline. Better to get things in order so you won’t look back and say you didn’t give your dreams your all. That’s why these quotes really hit home for me. You know, you can’t gain the rewards of being self disciplined while you’re being lazy (lol). And on the other side of the equation, you will burn yourself out if you don’t relax a little and enjoy what you have.
So now it’s time to think about what will you risk to achieve your dreams? The thing is, you don’t have to search everywhere to figure out the formula like Elizabeta and I did.
A mentor is the ONLY reason Elizabeta and I were able to pull out of being in a rut advertising for years without much to show for it. A mentor is the only reason I was able to figure out the five critical skills. It was the difference between success and failure online for us. And it will be for you too. Want to know more about it?

Don’t forget everything of real value takes time to build! Be patient with yourself. 🙂
After learning the Five Critical Skills, everything changed for us. And they will for you too. See the Webinar on the Five Critical Skills for FREE here.
