“Discipline equals freedom.” Everyone wants freedom. We want to be physically free and mentally free. We want to be financially free and we want more free time. But where does that freedom come from? How do we get it?
The answer is the opposite of freedom. The answer is discipline.
You want more free time? Follow a more disciplined time-management system.
You want financial freedom? Implement long-term financial discipline in your life.
Do you want to be physically free to move how you want, and to be free from many health issues caused by poor lifestyle choices? Then you have to have the discipline to eat healthy food and consistently work out.
We all want freedom. Discipline is the only way to get it.”
– Former Navy Seal Jocko Willink
“To be unavailable means that you deliberately avoid exhausting yourself and others… A hunter knows that he will lure game into his traps over and over again, so he doesn’t worry. To worry is to become accessible, unwittingly accessible. And once you worry, you cling to anything out of desperation; and once you cling you are bound to get exhausted or to exhaust whoever or whatever you are clinging to.”
