Things to Remember:
- Problems that are procrastinated on are only amplified. Waiting always makes it worst.
- Procrastination and indulgence are nothing more than creditors that charge us interests.
- Making the sacrifice, putting in the work, doing the extra effort and being disciplined creates the easier life. It’s really not a sacrifice but a short term down payment on a rich future blessing.
- Successful people had formed a habit of doing things they know they should be doing even when they don’t feel like doing them.
- Distraction is a dangerously deceptive saboteur of our goals.
- Enjoying is not a requirement of doing things.
- Self discipline isn’t as hard as we think when we know how to think about it the right way.
- It’s hard to be nervous when your heart is on service.
