Only The Disciplined Are Free

Eliud Kipchoge is the world’s best marathon runner. He just set a new world record in the Berlin, Germany marathon–2 hours and a minute.

How did he achieve that? “Only the disciplined ones in life are free. If you are undisciplined, you are a slave to your moods and your passions.”

Someone posted a picture of the daily schedule of a famous (I guess) body builder. He has a disciplined approach to his day. Rise early, eat, workout, eat big breakfast, and so forth until bed. He rises each day at 2:30 am and is in bed by 7:30 pm.

My schedule includes rising at 5:30 and in bed by 10. Reading, writing, workout, work, reading, sleep.

Successful CEOs, creative people, athletes all have a disciplined schedule of rising early, working out (whatever that might be), reading, practicing or doing, family time, sleep.

This is ancient wisdom. Try reading the Proverbs in your disciplined early morning reading time.

When you don’t have to make so many decisions about the routine matters of life because of your discipline, then you are free to create, achieve, serve, or whatever you do.

Only the disciplined ones in life are free.
