Decision, Discipline & Determination

‘It is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.’ James 4:17 (NLT) Brian Tracy says, “There are so many good things you can do, that your ability to decide may be critical determinant of what you accomplish. If you’re like most people, you’re overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time.

Mark Twain once joked that if first thing every morning you eat a frog, you’ll go through the rest of the day knowing that’s the worst that can happen to you for the day! Your ‘frog’ is the most important task, the one you’re likely to procrastinate on, the one that can have the greatest positive impact. Find it and treat it as a personal challenge and resist the temptation to start with easier task.

If you ‘eat’ it first, it’ll give you energy and momentum for the rest. What you put off until tomorrow, you’ll put off again tomorrow. Plus, it’s sin to know what you ought to do and not do it. Success requires decision, discipline and determination. Make the decision, discipline yourself until it becomes automatic and stay determined until it becomes part of who you are.
