If you want to make any sort of progress in your life, you MUST be disciplined and hold yourself to certain standards you set for yourself which build toward the fulfillment of your mission.
Things like going to sleep on time, getting your calories in, not spending too much, meditating, reading for an hour, etc. are what OVER TIME and with CONSISTENCY will lead to your transformation and long term success.
Achievement isn’t just something you go out and grab off the grocery aisle when you feel like. It’s a result of hard fucking work over a long fucking period of time. Exhibiting discipline and consistency in everyday life is what adds up to success in the long term.
Now this isn’t to say you should be a stuck up boring fuck who doesn’t know how to enjoy life. Enjoy life, but do so on your own terms while not straying on your mission or bending on your priorities.
Back in his bodybuilding days, Arnold Schwarzenegger would be in bed by 11 PM every night, even on Fridays while his friends were out partying and drinking, because it meant him getting the sleep necessary to recover and grow.
The little things like going home a little early on Friday nights are the sacrifices you have to make to achieve the goals you set for yourself.
Discipline and consistency will make you successful in reaching your long term goals. Hold yourself accountable. Be someone who sees the power of consistency, and take pride in setting yourself apart from the herd.
