Thank You Discipline

Don’t expect depth from people who aren’t willing to dig. It just doesn’t work that way.

Most people don’t really want accurate sound advice. They want someone to agree with their favorite excuses. Surround yourself with people who support excuses, you’ll be comfortably mediocre – and deprive others of who you should’ve been.

Excuses are comfortable today, empty tomorrow, easy now, regretted some day, appeasing for a moment, ultimately unsatisfying.

I’m grateful for the people who told me that it’s not right to be wrong, that selfishness isn’t valid, that I must fight for what I love.

In other words, I’m grateful for the painful discipline that steered me away from the cliff’s edge.

    I am very, very happy with this post! Very happy indeed. His beautiful rerouting to what could have led to the “loss” of two lives. Your words make me thank the Lord. i see you making the right choice. yes, Fight for the people you are called to love. Fight for them always. Stay in there in your battlefield now that you have found It to be really where He called you to be. Honor His call and the people you are to love and fight for, and those who have invested their lives for you, people who actually truly love you and who will fight for you. God bless you. Painful discipline, yes. But we learn, we always learn. This whole thing only strengthened each other’s call all the more. God is faithful. He enabled.

  3. I totally agree with you. I have also learned many times over that the things that are easy to attain don’t have any lasting value, while those that give long-term satisfaction requires commitment and dedication.
