Whether it is visible or not, discipline runs concurrent with success. In actuality, it is a form of competitiveness, or at the very least responsible for it. Athletes cannot be the best at their sport without consistently honing their skills through a form of dedication which arises from their commitment to their pursuit to be elite at what they do. You do not have to be a star performer to want to be the best at anything. You can still excel; you can still be able to explore all of the avenues that make you crave excitement and joy for your future as long as you are focused and dedicated.
The reason people overcomplicate their journey is simply because they forget that life is easy. It is even easier when you educate yourself in the ways of peaceful discipline. It does not take a lot of effort to practice principles that are strong, healthy, loving and geared towards empowering yourself and others. If everyone spent a few minutes honoring the rights of their fellow human to co-exist peacefully, then there would be more restraint and more gestures to work on improving personal and neighborly relations.
From a spiritual perspective, it is always going to be seen as a gift if you can stay devoted to the areas of life that are meant to help and not hinder growth. It does take practice. There is nothing in life that avoids this fact; at least on a conscious level. Even things like eating had to be taught to you. Once learned, it became second-nature. Discipline is the same way. Regardless of what you are trying to improve on, when you stay on the track that is best suited for you, the outcome will always raise your vibration. Why fear success? These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
