Discipline is all too often perceived as negative. But discipline is the key ingredient in being a champion. But what exactly is discipline? It is activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill such as training. Its purpose is to shape behavior in accord with specific rules of conduct. In athletics where instinct and muscle memory are critically important to compete at a high level, it is important to train the body and mind to function in accord with higher levels of competitive excellence.

Through discipline we learn to control our eating habits, exercises, our mind, how we respond to challenges, how to tackle obstacles, and many other behaviors. Sometimes we need a coach to help us shape these desired behaviors and break old habits that hinder our growth. 

“Discipline is the defining fire by which talent becomes ability.” Roy Smith

Clear Choices

Every morning we get up we have a choice to make. Many of us make this choice habitually. We have unconsciously triggered a set pattern of behaviors that has led us to the point we are today and positions us for future experiences.

Are we aware of the choices we make and the habitual behavioral patterns we have triggered?

The good news is we have all been given the gracious gift of free will to choose who we are and what we want to become in any given moment.

It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – Joanne Kathleen
