If we do not discipline ourselves the world will do it for us.

Feather, William

— William Feather

…Little in life is more important than self-discipline. When we decide to take control of our lives, we take back power that we have willingly—through our inaction—abdicated to others. If we just let things happen, external events will affect every aspect of our being, from finances to social relationships to our health. This is simply unacceptable, and the reason so many live unfulfilled, unhappy lives. So decide, right now, to take command of your life, set course for your destination, and take control of the helm!

…Think of this quote the next time you turn on any reality show. As a group, have we spiritually or mentally advanced in 400 years? Truth is, every generation—past, present, future—offers us the multitude who never look within, and those who quietly strive, day in and day out, to move closer to their Creator.
