Why Discipline Isn’t Real And It’s About Faith

Friday, December 08, 2023

Discipline Isn’t Real. Faith is what's real.

Wall Street legend and the creator of the Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities market, Ethan Penner, once told me this.

At first I was skeptical but then the more he explained it to me I finally realized he was right.

The idea is this: the concept of discipline is a myth.

People don’t have more discipline than others.

It only looks like that because the people who come across as more disciplined have way more belief and faith in positive outcomes.

They can actually visualize and envision a better future for themselves, they can see the results coming from doing all of the hard work, and because of that they’re willing to do what’s required to get there.

The people who struggle with 'discipline' often find it hard to imagine or to visualize themselves actually achieving their goal.

Deep down, they can’t see it happening or believe that it can happen.

And this limiting belief constantly stops them from doing the work and implementing the habits required to getting the result or achieve their dream.

What happens is they might start doing something positive but then they drift, they give into their temptations. They stop doing the hard work, they stop taking the necessary actions to succeed.

So they don’t get what they want.

Whether you're trying to start or grow a business, gain muscle, lose weight, stop drinking, or achieve any other goal, the quote on quote 'disciplined' people are actually those with the most belief and faith in themselves.

They trust and believe in the process and that if they put in the work…consistently, they'll reap the rewards.

So, what about you? What are you striving for in life? Do you really want it? How bad you want to achieve your dream?

Can you see it happening in your mind? Can you visualize yourself being in that position? Are you willing to sacrifice to get there?

Greatness is in everyone and you can do it. You just need to believe that you can and that it's worth it. That your dream, your goal, and the thing that you want most is worth doing what sometimes is extremely boring unsatisfying work that is required to get and that it will be worth it.

Whether your goal is to get great at sales, start a new business, lose weight, the reality is its not always going to be fun.

But you can do what you want if you want it bad enough.

Have the faith and belief in yourself that you'll be rewarded for your efforts.

Visualize a better version of yourself in your mind. Humans are humans there is no difference between us and everything we want in life starts with the belief and the faith that we can get what we want.

It’s ok to dream and let that fuel you to do the work necessary and make the right decisions to turn it into reality"
