We all have made mistakes. We all have done something really bad in the past. But do not allow your bad beginning to define who you are, where you are going, and who you will become.
Self-discipline is the foundation upon which success is built. Self-discipline is doing what you don’t like to do. Self-discipline is doing something right in the face of obstacles. Self-discipline is doing what is important, not what is urgent.
If you have been hanging out with unproductive people, it is time to say a big goodbye to them. From now on, don’t allow them into your house anymore. It is time to get stuff done. No more messing around.
