Day 12: Shaping Discipline

I got everything on my list done this morning. I didn’t end up getting my martial practice done yesterday – I kept putting it off and then I simply needed to sleep.

Doing things like you love them – even if you hate them. Mike Tyson recommends approaching training like that – probably life in general.

Seneca said men suffer more in the mind than in reality and its true. “Dreading” doing something I know I need to do in order to achieve my goals doesn’t do anything for me – except increase the odds I won’t do it – and then where am I? This is exactly the same process as getting out of bed at 4:30 in the morning – the alarm goes off and I can lay in bed thinking about how I need to get out of bed (but don’t want to) or I can just do it.

I have been thinking my Ego doesn’t want me to change – but I’m not so sure that’s the case anymore. It feels like an excuse when I think or say it to myself.

I’m starting to grasp the idea that there’s a big difference between knowing the path and walking the path. To know is not enough – you must do.

Doing is what separates champions from everyone else – they find the best way for them to do something and they do it.
