I find it interesting that the most successful people I know...those who accomplish and produce the most, never complain about time. W. Clement Stone said, “Success is achieved and maintained by those who try, and keep trying, for there is nothing to lose by trying and a great deal to gain. So by all means TRY! And do it now!!!”
Desire, determination and discipline are what it takes to accomplish anything in life. Consider a young child and how they learn to walk, talk, ride a bike or do anything in this great big world they are dropped into at birth.
- First they have to desire to do it.
- They never contemplate that they were determined to walk.
- And when they fail they discipline themselves to try again till they master it.
The same holds true in your financial life you have to desire, realize your determination and then discipline yourself to act in accordingly.
With a child their desire to walk and talk is awakened because everybody they are surrounded by is walking and talking. It is paramount that you surround yourself with people whom you want to become like financially. Without this critical component you will never fulfill your deepest desires. And therefore, if you don’t find people to surround yourself with who encourage and enforce your desires then you must read, listen or watch people who do emulate your desires. Otherwise you will become discouraged and discipline will fail you.
The word discipline is a negative word to many, yet without discipline nothing is accomplished in life. The word itself means “to follow” and to follow you must exercise self-control, will-power and self-restraint; otherwise you’ll become a wanderer not a follower! And wanderers never become successful or significant.
So discipline yourself to be a good follower...a follower who follows the desire of your own heart and emulates other who have lived or accomplished your desire. Realize that you are determined to be somebody other than who you are right now because the alternative is sobering... entropy. And the law of entropy emphatically states that you will move towards a lower and lower level of success than you presently occupy if you don’t discipline yourself to become better and better.
Jesus tells the story about old wine skins bursting when new wine is poured into them. That is why it is important to place new wine into new wineskins. This unpretentious instruction is critical to contemplate as you think about your financial future.
- Are you satisfied with where you are financially today?
- Do you want to increase your success and significance?
- Do you want to help more people than you do right now?
