You want to be the very best version of yourself you can possibly be. You want to be bigger, stronger, smarter, and tougher than you were yesterday. You want health and happiness to abound in your life. Because you want to know God’s Word so well that it falls from your lips and informs your life without your realizing it. Because you desire strong, deep, and lasting relationships. Because you want to be the very best father you could ever be to your children. Because you want to be the best husband you’re capable of being to your wife.
For all these reasons and a hundred more, you choose discipline.
It’s not an easy path to walk. It involves getting up earlier, working harder and forcing yourself to do things you’d rather skip. But in the end, it’s the only path that’ll get you even close to the most important things in your life. Things that make hardship seem trivial.
