Willpower Vs Discipline

Through the steel of discipline, you will forge a character rich with courage and peace. Through the virtues of will, you are destined to rise to life’s highest ideal and live within a heavenly mansion filled with all that is good, joyful and vital. Without it, you are lost like a mariner without a compass, one who eventually sinks with his ship. 



The virtues of self-discipline is like a wire cable.

Discipline and willpower are attributes of the enlightened. These are qualities we, as human must have. It’s a must! Give me a successful man and I will show you a disciplined man. Not only that, I will show a man who mastered how to control himself.
Give me a bright student, and I will show you students who were awake studying, when their mates were fast asleep and drooling.

To you, who have been dreaming of losing some weight, you’ve gotta discipline yourself to keep yourself accustomed to the activities you are ordered to do! To you student who wants to lead in class, you’ve gotta discipline yourself and study more than you’ve been doing.

To you, who has been dreaming of being like Jesus, but waking up in the midnight to pray and study the word is a problem? Discipline yourself! Move out of your comfort zone.

To be the master of yourself, learn the art of self-control and self-discipline.

When spider webs unite, they tied up a lion. – African Proverb.

When you liberate your willpower, you become the master of your personal world. When you practice the art of self-government, there will be no hurdle too high for you to climb, no challenge too tough for you to overcome and no crisis too hot for you to cool down.

Self-discipline will provide you with the mental reserves required to persevere when life throws you one of its little curves. – Robin Sharma

Lack of willpower, self-control, is a mental disease.

Willpower allows you to do what you said you would do when you said you would do it. It allows you to get up and cultivate your mind through meditation. It allows you to hold your tongue when a less-actualized person insults you or does something you disagree with.

It is willpower that pushes your dream forward when the odds seems insurmountable. It offers you the inner power to keep your commitments to others, and most especially, to yourself.

It is willpower that will make you say, ‘oh sorry, I can’t afford that.’

It is willpower that makes you go right when others are turning left.

To live a life you have imagined rather than the live you have, you must have willpower.

The more you control your will, the more powerful you become.

Decide to do things you know you should be doing rather than walking the path of least resistance.
Push yourself!

Whatever your chosen field, whatever you  believed in, whatever you want to achieve, be it in spiritual, financial, marital, and the likes,  if you lack discipline and willpower, you will soon be tramped upon. You will be sidelined!

As you move on in life, as you conquer the troubles of each day, as you aspire to be the best you want to be, remember self-discipline, remember willpower

JUNE URGES: Revisit Your Resolution (2)



Continuation of Revisit your resolution, part one.

The S.E.L.F reasons that infringes our resolutions.

S= Self-doubt
E= Enormosity (big)
L= Little/no drive
F= Fault finders.

Many a person gets hooked by one or many of these factors above, on the pursuit of their vision. This could keep such an individual spinning the wheels of opportunities repeatedly, but without tangible results.

Self doubt as learnt from Karyl MC Bride , a seasoned psychologist, is different from an “impostor syndrome” or ” low self esteem”

SELF DOUBT IS lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.

Believers (Followers of Christ) have an edge at this juncture, and you may want to ask why,

Well, Check this out please:

1 COR 2:16 says:
…Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ

But we HAVE the MIND of CHRIST

This type of mind is devoid of fear, curruption of the world, pride, e.t.c.

It doesn’t come naturally by birth: but supernaturally by a re-birth.

At every point when the Pharisees come testing JESUS to see whether he will fall by his words, they become disappointed, because he knew the intent of their hearts.

So, you want to enjoy this kind of creative mind? Then you need to be friends with that successful man of Gallilee, JESUS.

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.”

Doubters operate in the realms of luck,
But divine ability (of the mind) operates in the realm of the spirit.

Consequently; Self-doubt breeds excuses.

Surprisingly, failures tend to come with more reasons than successes, these reasons are referred to as “Excuses”

You remember David in the Holy scriptures right? Did you know he could have attributed his failure in the battle against that huge man of Gath (Goliath) to many reasons? In fact, he could have said he was too small, or he was just a shepherd, or he only killed a bear, and not a man in the first place, but he didn’t.


Every great success focuses on an inner ability.

Little wonder, that Great Nurse and Philanthropist, Florence Nightingale said; “I never gave or took an excuse”

Sometime ago, a friend said, you want to be a high achiever? LIVE BEYOND EXCUSES. Its is an element of self doubt!

Self doubt is an anti-resolution spirit.

¤Next up is ENORMORSITY (big, huge, complex…)

While resolutions may be big,
Steps (goals) toward achieving those resolutions should be simple,realistic and uncomplicated.

In fact, When you set a goal, you are working towards something. You can work backwards from where you want to get to and create an action plan of little steps you need to take to get there. This is a much more realistic way of creating the change you want because you’re slowly building yourself up to reach it, SAYS Susanna Halonen.

Its almost getting too bulky,
you dont like that right?, I don’t either, (😁 lafs)

But, believing we are being challenged by some truths entailed herein,
