Saying no to yourself
Subjecting yourself to self-imposed discipline is the surest way to increase the quality of your existence. – Nun Amen-Ra
Achievement requires the discipline to do what is necessary. It's easy to live at the expense of our aspiration, but saying no is necessary to transcend the fear, habit, and desire that block the path to personal progress.
The brave say no to fear. The healthy say no to vice. The prolific say no to leisure. The disciplined are confident, for they have fulfilled the promises made to themselves. The disciplined are at peace resting in the rhythm of their accomplishments.
