through the eyes of an enigma… el maèstro

Below is day 5 in our month long series of inspirational posts on the ’31 Major Causes of failure’.

Lack of Self-Discipline.

In order for one to be truly disciplined, you must have self-control, meaning that the individual should control their negative qualities. It stands to reason that if you are to control your surroundings, you must first be able to control yourself…well it makes sense to me anyways. This is not an easy task, in fact it has be described as “the hardest job you will ever tackle”. As Plato (correct me if I’m wrong) put it “The first and best victory is to conquer self; to be conquered by self is of all things most shameful and vile.”

Your best friend, and your worst enemy are one and the same person.
