Wisdom Wednesday | Desire is Nothing Without Discipline

Desire is nothing without discipline

I wish I was a better putter.
I wish I could drive farther.
I wish I could put my approaches closer to the basket.
I wish I could keep a better attitude on the course.

I wish, I wish, I wish.

How many people instead say…

I will be a better putter.
I will drive farther.
I will park my approaches.
I will have a better attitude.

Not a lot.

Even less people take the actual steps needed to make those things a reality. If it were up to me, no one would ever be able to say “I wish…” unless the very next statement out of their mouth was, “And these are the things I’m doing to make that happen.”

The thing is, doing requires discipline. It’s what separates the people who get their wishes from those who don’t. Discipline is not wanting to practice, but doing it anyway. It’s not wanting to do field work, but doing it anyway.

Anyone can do things when they are in the mood to do them. True discipline is doing them when you aren’t.

It’s great to have dreams.

The question is, do you have the discipline to make those dreams happen?
