You could either do whatever makes you (only) feel good right now or do something good for your life now and in the future.
You could choose to snooze the alarm and sleep again or wake right up and do a morning jog or prepare a more decent breakfast.
You could choose to watch TV all night or write a new post in your dear blog.
You could choose to eat anything delicious in your mouth or start eating something that is good for your health.
You could choose to stay still or learn new things, build new skills and habits, do something that would change you and your life to the better.
The first choice is what most people take. Because it’s easy. The second one needs discipline.
Now, it’s okay to sit back and relax. But if that is all you do you will loose a chance to have a better life to enjoy.
To make a better choice you need to see the consequences. Imagine it in your head, then choose based on that image.
A short fun easy now that cause you a messy life and some troubled future or a long happy meaningful life.
I want the second image. I need to train the dragon (just because it’s a more cool word than discipline and I love the book :p).
Would you please share your experience in training your “dragon”?
