Do you have Discipline?


Discipline. Whenever I hear this word I immediately think about military or people who follow orders to a T. Now I have grown up in a sports  environment. I played sports my entire life. So I always had some one to tell me what to do, where to go, and what to eat from 1st grade to Junior year in high school.  My senior year I went to a boarding school. Now I had the ability to make more choices. I could eat what I wanted, study when I wanted, and basically for the most part do what I wanted I had more freedom.  Even thought I was given freedom to do what I wanted I still chose to do the right things. First reason I did not know any better. Never was a trouble maker and had good grades. Second reason I knew if I do the right things I could achieve more in my life. Eating healthy, working out and practicing hard will make me a better player.  Now I did not have people to tell me to eat right or to work hard it was something I told myself that I needed to do these things in order to make myself better. When I hear discipline I think of doing the what is right when there is no one around.  It is being accountable for you actions. If you live a sedentary life and your eat  a lot of junk food then your can put your self on the path for serious health problems in the future.  Remember unless you’re  born with diabetes( Type I) your lifestyle is a major factor in whether you will be diabetic in the future.  If you were a little more discipline stayed away from the sugary junk food ate more balance diet you would not be setting your self up for future problems.   A  friend of mine used to tell me how much he used to party and drink every weekend. He would drink until he almost black out. He said he was depressed and did not liked what he had become. Finally one day he decided he wasn’t going to do the same thing any more he made a huge change in his life. He started eating better, working out again and he even game up drinking for 8 months. He really started to hold himself accountable for his actions.  He started to feel a lot better but he said the hardest part was to stay with it mentally. It is very hard at times to do whats right when your haven’t done right in a long time.  One when you have time just take a second and reflect on your life  and ask your self  Am I Discipline?
