Those who lack discipline are those who associate limitations to it, when in reality it is power. Discipline gives you the power to create, plan and execute what others have considered to be too overwhelming/much time/much sacrifice.

New Years Resolutions
A majority of people give themselves New Year’s resolutions and I’ve realized that New Year’s resolutions have become cliché… So I’ve decided not to follow the herd and make GOALS instead. At the beginning of the year(2010) I gave myself WAY TOO MANY goals to accomplish in a very short period of time. So now I’ve decided to list 5 and write them down in a way that reminds me of what they are, but doesn’t make sense to anyone else but me. I do this because I honestly believe goals are like birthday wishes… If you reveal it then they won’t come true. The reasoning behind this is because once you start talking about it, then it becomes an ego thing(you feel the need to defend it) rather than something that comes naturally and really want. Then you waste time and effort defending it, rationalizing how it is a good plan, etc etc, rather than actually pursuing it. Sounds weird, but that’s what I believe… If you ask me what they are I will not tell you. All I’ll will say is, “I’ll let you know on December 31, 2011” haha.
P.S. I know this is early, but I thought I’d get started on it already haha.
