I loved this quote the moment I came across it  a few years ago.

Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most. – Abraham Lincoln

I guess discipline hasn’t been too much of a problem for me. I decide and so I do.  I have been able to go through most of life’s ups and down because of a certain amount of discipline I have embraced in my life.

It did seem harsh to me at first, when my parents disciplined me. I would see the other children have fun and wonder why do I have to carry the trash , sweep the yard and run the countless errands?

But watching my dad being so disciplined , doing his own stuff and all the work he needed to do around the house without a word even when he was not so well made my admiration for him grow.

I learned to embrace discipline at a young age. I learned to choose well!

  1. For me, this human quality is very important for building a personality. I am also grateful to my parents for being strict in my youth. So now I’m disciplined and follow my paths in life.
