Welcome to the first post of 2013. I hope that you all had a festive Christmas Season and are ready for the new year. This year is going to be exciting, stimulating and energising! .
Holidays …. mmmmm ….. sleeping late, reading, going to the beach, suntanning, shopping, eaaatttting … in fact doing exactly what we want to do at any given moment! At the moment it would in fact be lovely to just take an extra week of leave – after all that’s my right isn’t it? No, self-employment is NOT one long holiday!
Wikipedia defines self discipline as follows:
“Self-discipline is the product of persisted willpower. Whereas willpower is the strength and ability to carry out a certain task, self-discipline is the ability to use it routinely and even automatically (as if through reflex). An analogy for the relationship between the two might be defined as follows: Where willpower is the muscle, self-discipline is the structured thought that controls that muscle. In most cultures, it has been noted that self-discipline is the ultimate path towards success.”
Those two words mentioned in the last post – self discipline – are quite annoying really! It would be lovely just to INDULGE – “come on – what is one more week of holiday in the grand scheme of things”? Well – one more week of holiday is not part of this year’s business plan! SELF DISCIPLINE means that we planned to start work today and that’s what we are going to do! This week is crucial to the success of my business …. planning, setting goals, taking stock of 2012 and how to move forward in 2013.
So let’s raise our glasses to 2013 – the year of self discipline and SUCCESS!
See you on line,
