If discipline was a person, it would be a very alone human in this world. It's that person that never chooses comfort, but instead chooses growth towards their goals, best self, and best future. Basically, in its human nature and/or natural state, it can seem like the party pooper in the bunch. It’s the one that moves with purpose and intention with their eye on the prize, and not swaying towards the desires of the wind. It’s movement today is always with the end in mind and takes everyday as an opportunity of what their success can look like.
Most importantly it’s the one that removes the limits that our comfort has placed. Discipline reveals our best. Discipline takes our deepest desires and conjures up motivation, energy, and faith to get us to the new us that we didn’t know existed. Discipline helps us understand that what makes the goal powerful, wasn’t the goal itself. It was the person we became in the process of the goal. Discipline believes in us more than our family and friends because it knows the capacity of impact that will occur once we overcome ourselves. Discipline remains true and consistent, no matter how often we leave it; it never leaves us. Discipline produces the God within, and trains us to have control over the uncontrollable, and produces what once seemed supernatural. Through the conditioning and training process we are forced to face the limitations of our comfort vs. the power within our discipline. Discipline creates the consistency of lifestyle that eventually doesn’t take discipline at all. And the character that was once spoiled through our resistance became the by-product of peace, love, joy, and understanding; the very fruits we all wish to enjoy.
One thing we teach at SEED HOUSE PROJECT is to take ownership and stewardship of one's life. We understand that every day we make a choice to control our life or allow life to control us. We choose to allow discipline to form us towards our desired outcome through faith and consistency.
Every day we ask our youth what is one thing you did today that was uncomfortable, but knew it would produce a better outcome?
I open this challenge and question to you!
Then I went down to the potter's house, and there he was, making something on the wheel. But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make.
Allow Discipline to be your potter!
Proud of the SEED HOUSE members! Thanks for choose to discipline yourself!
