Discipline Equals Freedom

Book Review: Discipline Equals Freedom

Wake up. Plan. Just do it. – These are the words that come to your mind after reading this book. It is an aggressive but motivating book aimed at bringing out the best of you.

Many of us keep pondering over what we want to do, and some who do know – they keep planning for it. It is just useless unless the activities that you thought of are executed. People can think of high dreams but they only realize the intensity of effort needed when they start taking action.

During those days of action, all of us face the dilemma of not moving forward to the goal, not seeing any results. So what you do? Most of us – Give up. NO. That shouldn’t be. Always be persistent and keep at it whether you like it or not. And slowly and steadily, you will reach your goal.

If you need some serious motivation to get up and work, especially work out, then this is the book for you! It also includes a set of exercises, with equipment’s and stretching techniques, which some people might find useful.

Lastly as Mr. Jocko Willink has written:

Don’t just talk.
Don’t just think.
Don’t just dream.
No. None of that matters.
The only thing that matters is that you actually do.

Take control of your life

“Put your head down and work hard. Never wait for things to happen, make them happen for yourself through hard graft and not giving up.” – Gordon Ramsay

Many people, not everyone, keep saying that I was not able to do because of him or her OR I was not able to get it because that happened. But really why are you blaming your own lack of enthusiasm and lack of perseverance and lack of commitment on other people or other things.

You need to understand that it is all on you. Don’t you think that the top athletes or the top celebrities feel sick? Don’t they face failures? Don’t they get hurt by others? Aren’t they berated by people? Everyone, literally everyone, at some point of time is hurt or is penalized but the point is what comes after that. What people do after they listen to the hate speeches or when they realize the betrayal of others.

Do they break down? DO they give in? Do they say ‘no more’? No. They understand what had happened, understand the mistake and learn from it. And THEY KEEP MOVING FORWARD. No matter the circumstances, they move ahead. That is the only secret to success. Nothing else, nothing more.

You ought to do whatever takes you closer to your goal, till it is morally correct. You need to keep trying till you achieve that one lifetime opportunity. And what after that? You take in the crowd, showcase that glamor of yours and keep working hard. That’s what means to be truly dedicated.

That’s what is achievement.

And that comes at a cost. You need to sacrifice those weekend parties or friends unions, or those binge watching and cola sips. So be mindful of what you want, and be mindful of what it takes to reach there. Because if you don’t know that, you will never be able to get there.
