The Growth Movement –  Get Outside Your Comfort Zone!

Can you achieve success having only drive without discipline?

By on Dec 27, 2013 in Blog | 5 comments

Drive is synonymous with determination and grit. When I think of someone who is driven and determined, I think of someone who doesn’t give up. If they fall on their face they get right back up. They know what they want. They see an end goal in their mind and will stop at nothing to get it. They are resilient and relentless in their pursuit of their goal. It is both a passion and powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective. They have a laser sharp focus to achieve their goals and seemingly endless stamina. Their drive and determination are the fuel for their stamina. So long as they have the drive, they have the fuel they need to persevere.   Now let’s look at discipline. By definition, discipline is a course of actions leading to a greater goal than the satisfaction of the immediate. A disciplined person is one that has established a goal and is willing to achieve that goal at the expense of his or her immediate comfort. Many of us have imposed disciplines placed upon us and we do fairly well managing to these disciplines. The most valuable discipline, however is the one we impose upon ourself. Why do we sometimes wait for others to impose discipline into our life? Do they want success for us more than we want for ourselves? Maybe not. Maybe, they just want the particular outcome that demands those imposed disciplines more than we do. In other words, their agenda is their agenda and not ours. Maybe, we have yet to make the clear connection between the imposed disciplines and our end goal. Or could it be because when we have the drive to achieve the end result, we impose self discipline? When the end goal is exciting enough, will we now sacrifice our immediate comfort to achieve it?   What my brain tells me is that you must have a clear definition of success in order to answer the question. Who’s definition of success are you trying to achieve? If it is someone else’s definition, I can argue it is attainable by having only discipline. The irony, is that you will not consider it success since it is not by your definition. If it is by your definition, which it should be since this is your life, your destiny, your happiness, you will achieve it with drive and determination. You will be so motivated and driven to achieve the outcome, you will become relentless in your pursuit. No one can impose the drive and determination you need to achieve it. The great news is, that you will naturally possess it when you clearly define what success means to you. Once you do that, you can aim, shoot and hit it! You can’t hit your bullseye with your arrow aimed at another target. Your bullseye is your success. You just need to determine what that means to you if you really want to hit it! The best news is that your success is only determined by you!  ...

Journaling Leads to a Better Life

I can hear it now, “I don’t have time for that”. What I can say is that it will give you more time. By writing out your thoughts and reflections from the day, you will actually create more space in your brain. Your mind is overloaded with thoughts and this process will “dump” some of them so you can have a clear focus on what you need to do next. The 2nd win of writing out and reflecting on how you lived out your day, is that you will receive daily “ah-ha’s” as to whether or not you lived the day and did the things you should have. If so, you will have awareness and clarity of your actions. Thus you can ensure you continue to live life this way daily. If you did not have the day you wanted by not living out your life as you desire, you still have the benefit of awareness and can now determine what you need to do tomorrow to ensure you do live out your life as you want. A wise person once said, ” Life is about the journey not the end result”. If you have an amazing journey, I bet that you end up with a pretty amazing result though! What are you doing every day on your journey to ensure you lead the life you want? The clock is ticking. Reflect and write your reflections daily. Start today. You will change the course of your life for the better with a very simple...
