Discipline Is Dead: Accelerating the Momentum of Success

Discipline. 
 
Think about it. 
 
Willing ourselves to do work we don’t want to do. 
 
Notice how we language it:
  
     -  The “price” we have to pay
     -  The “pain” for the gain
     -  The “struggle” … necessary for the character it brings
     -  The “work”… a four-letter word
   
And then discipline to get through it all. 
 
No wonder we cave. It’s all a setup for failure, to give up. 
 
The secret to accelerating our momentum is to fall in love with the process. We do this by changing how we language it and creating “micro visions” of us doing work we love … because it is WHO WE ARE.
 
Creating new visions of us becoming the person who does the work because it is who we are … it is our new identity. It is who we are and what we love.
 
We can change any perspective with the art of vision and self-motivation.   
 
Paint the picture, capturing the positive emotions we crave, then visualize them over and over and over again. This is how we change.
 
What if, instead of having to “pay the price” and “do it anyway,” our daily work was our gift to the world? 
 
What if we not only loved doing it, but we were compelled to do it … it was our calling?
 
What if we fell in love with the process?
 
Let’s say your big single daily action to achieve your goals is to eat fresh and move physically to exhaustion every day.  
 
Write a vision of you BEING that person … not the grind of it, but the grace of it. 
 
Focus on what you are doing, why you are doing it, what great pleasure it brings you, and how it honors you and your family. Create a mini-movie of it with your favorite inspirational music. Watch it as many times a day as you can, but at least first thing in the morning and last thing at night. 
 
Do it for 30 days. I promise … you will change.  
 
Your preferences will change. Your attitudes will change. You will learn to become the person who loves the work.
 
You will soon do it naturally and effortlessly, with joy and consistency. You will learn to crave it. Imagine that.
 
Motivated people do not need discipline. They do not need to be committed. They do what must be done for the joy the process brings them. It is WHO THEY ARE.

The work is worth it,
Richard

P.S. My blogs are, for me, a conversation. I rant for a bit and then … if so inspired, you respond. Your comments close the loop of conversation. They let me know I was heard. They let me know I contributed something … or not. I encourage you to close the loop … or open a new one and say something.

It took me years for the penny to drop.

I first experienced it when I changed my lifestyle from eating what I feel like to choosing the most healthy food available in every moment. I lost so much weight and with that came so many other amazing things.

When I first read your book Mach 2 you gave it a name: To BE goals.

Love it! Thank you Richard. You add enormous value to my life!

I have been doing it for over 30 days now and I have changed. I’m in “mustivation” mode now! If I don’t send my message out and get an invite every day, it just doesn’t feel right.

You taught me through coaching that motivation is about identity. Am I a this or a that? If I truly am what I say I am then I can easily do the work. Thank you for this great secret to success.

Great reminder about being conscious of our language and our thoughts to bring about positive change. Instead of saying I have to…. I have changed that to I get to…
which brings a positive thought and action to enjoying the process.

I love this conversation. Falling in love with the process was in itself a process for me, yet one that has paid HUGE dividends over my career. I was reminded yet again at an event with team and guests last night, the beautiful upside of falling in love with the process, because without it, that room of excited, beautiful people, would not have come together, and in the world we live in right now, the ability to actually be able to gather together is a blessing. So falling in love with starting conversations, following up, inviting and more follow up, makes it all worth while. Thank you Richard for always blessing us with your wisdom x

Discipline is a lost art in this society. We want to do the busy work. Instead of prospecting and inviting. Thanks for stoking the fire. To do what I know must be done. I love your if I gave you $500 would you do analogy.

I love this; change your thoughts change your mind. Creating a new mindset. I’m going to start this exercise today. Many times your mind wants to go into an automatic play back of every negative thought it’s had. Taking charge of your thoughts is a challenge for me.

Mahalo,
Sometimes what you say strikes a chord & this got me smiling doing the work.Enthusiasm is contagious and what a difference to be on a mission enjoying the conversation versus having to get through the “no’s” and dragging myself to my keyboard to get to ‘work’.Something clicked today & I know what I WANT to do.Thanx,Richard!

Thank you Richard, this is the person I am working on being. It tends to be up and down but I can see progress. You have given me the boost to keep on believing that I will become that person that I want to be.

Your words resonate with me and I agree. It shouldn’t be a chore to do the work I love. I am going to incorporate the vision of the goal in a more positive manner from now on. My other issue is exhaustion. Working my 10-12 hour a day regular job and what I truly love, YL in between. I plan to retire in 22 months so I have a vision and a goal to accomplish in that time frame. Thank you Richard.

Brilliant post… Haanel writes, “…words are thoughts expressed. Words are the highest form of architecture and the passport to success” … this is my favorite lesson in the Master Key System and in one, short post, you brilliantly communicated this for “everyman” to understand and apply. BRAVO

“Motivated people do not need discipline. They do not need to be committed. They do what must be done for the joy the process brings them. It is WHO THEY ARE.”

Wow! Thank you for this statement right here! It brings so much light and clarity to what I’ve been feeling in my heart. Moving into network marketing has been something that my heart has been leading me to but it has been an easy, graceful transition not a heavy, grinding struggle. And THIS is why! I am compelled to share because it’s who I am. Thank you again!

There’s so much wisdom and truth here. As I have learned to reframe my perception of life to one of gratitude and hope, the “should’s” and “must do’s” have transformed into joyful opportunities to grow and become a “better me.” Thank you for sharing your thoughts and life with me.

This topic spoke to me as a business owner, wife & mother of two young teen girls. You have a way with presenting ideas that opens new perspectives. The grace of creating the person we want to become is what we focus on. I will be passing this along.

Thanks for this Richard. Very well said. This distinction and emphasis (it seems to be focussed on more in the most recent edition of Mach 2) has been a lightbulb moment for me.
