Day 10: Self-discipline & Bravely to start


Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

1 Corinthians 9:25

There is no arrival without the effort of the moving feet and there is no night so long that it does not end with dawn are two  of my favorite quotes from Ngugi wa Thiongo in his book Matigari.

This two quotes embraces my belief on being disciplined, the kind of self-discipline that prompts you to start, starting with one simple change that you  commit to keep building upon.

The men and women we celebrate, in Ministry, in Business, in Literature or in Athletics shows high levels of self-discipline. Everyone celebrated Eliud when he attempted and managed to run a marathon within two hours. You may be tempted to think or say they were born that way and are simply talented, (note; talent is just but a part of the whole equation). They simply believed and started, they kept improving themselves. They were at some point amateurs but they did not get discouraged or got tired to keep moving.

My take, let us show courage, let gather bravely and let us celebrate each other for acts of bravely. Let us begin doing what matters.

Anytime you feel discouraged, or feel your energy is fleeing when you are hit by the reality of how far you still have to go to accomplish your goals, remind yourself that everyone who has built a discipline had to go through a rigorous process, a process that took time. Little changes that turn into habits, which then lead to a lifestyle, you identity changes and eventually you attain achievements that translates to success.
