#48 Personal Freedom Requires Discipline

Good Morning!

I was up really early today, 4 am early.

If you want more freedom in your life, you need more discipline.

If you type that line into google search, you’re going to get a lot of results.  There is so much to think and write about regarding freedom.

Whenever I hear someone use the word freedom, I’m reminded of the meme where there is a bald eagle standing outside a windowed door with the caption: “Excuse me sir, but do you have a moment to talk about freedom?”.

But that’s not the freedom I’m talking about.

I’m talking about personal freedom; and if you want more if it, you have to get your shit together.

What is personal freedom?

It’s about controlling how you spend your time to get along in this world.

It’s about setting your own working hours, goals, and how much money you’re going to make.

It’s about who you want to spend your time with and how.

Discipline is not a consequence, it’s the drive to take action.

Jocko Willink says “Discipline is your best friend. Discipline is the path to freedom from laziness and wasted time. Discipline will get you stronger, faster, and healthier than you’ve ever been in your life. Discipline is choosing what makes you better than what’s easy”.

If you want more freedom, you have to get good controlling and managing your time.  You need to have the discipline to work your plan, refining it and getting better at executing it, every single day.

If you want more money, you have to be disciplined with your spending and not buying shit you don’t need for a tiny bit of instant gratification.

If you want a better body and mind, you must be disciplined with your training and nutrition on a daily basis.

Discipline will get you anything you want in life.

As Jocko says, get after it.

Have a great day!
