Freedom is born of self-discipline.
No individual or no nation can achieve or maintain liberty without self-control.
An undisciplined man (or woman) is a slave to it’s own weaknesses.

– Alan Valentine.

Self-discipline is a form of FREEDOM.
Freedom from laziness and lethargy,
freedom from the expectations and demands of others,
freedom from weakness and fear and doubt.

Self-discipline allows a pitcher to feel his individuality, his inner strength, his talent.
He is master of, rather than a slave to, his thoughts and emotions.

– H.A. Dorfman.

How to make yourself do what you don’t want to do:

1. Rather than listening to the voice in your head that is screaming “I hate this & I don’t want to do this”, think about why it is a GOOD thing to do.

2. Instead of trying to pretend that you don’t feel this way, accept that you are feeling very blah and negative.

3. Don’t think about results and how well you think you’ll do, as this could raise your feelings of anxiety and fear, just think about “right now” and the first thing you can do.

4. Accept that life is tough, and is full of things that suck, but recognise that doing hard stuff is better in the end.
You’ll likely have more choices and freedom, if you do.

5. Just do a little bit for now, then give yourself a proper break, then go back and do some more, and soon you’ll find you’re in the flow.

6. Don’t allow your mind to wander and think of other things.
Stay focused for that short time and then stop, and have fun.

• You’ll never look good trying to make someone look bad.

• Save your explanations for those that are determined to understand you.

• Give your silence to those that are determined to misunderstand you.

• Your life is too short to be unhappy. 5 days a week in exchange for 2 days of freedom; that’s not how you are supposed to live your life. Live & experience life everyday.

• Don’t be upset from people you don’t respect.

• Life is not tiring. Wanting life to be a certain way but not having the confidence to make it that way, is tiring.

Life lessons it took me a while to learn:

1. Missing people is not a reason to reconnect with them.
It’s okay to remember people without rekindling.

2. You can’t talk to everyone about everything.
It’s okay to have certain people for certain topics.

3. When someone is envious of you, it’s not your job to make them feel better about who you are.
Be you shamelessly.

4. Assumptions are not rooted in fact.
If you want to know something, it’s always best to ask.

5. Authenticity equals freedom.
There’s nothing that someone can hold over you when you’re okay with who you are.

Don’t allow your life to just be fine.
Or just okay.
Or even just good.

Make it brilliant, consistent, spectacular, wild, extraordinary.
Fill with excitement and adventure, be passionate and fearless, search for freedom and opportunity.
You only get one life, so make it count.
Make it mean something amazing.
Make it yours.
