Chapter 4: Self Discipline & Goals

“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

-Jim Rohn

1. Resolve today to “switch on” your success mechanism and unlock your goal-achieving mechanism by deciding exactly what you really want in life.

2. Make a list of ten goals that you want to achieve in the foreseeable future. Write them down in the present tense, as if you have already achieved them.

(1) Graduate high school. (2) Graduate high school with an advanced diploma. (3) Decide on a college. (4) Get a spot on the baseball team at the college I have chosen. (5) Successfully enjoy  my time left in high school as a student while being a diligent worker. (6) Play my whole senior season of baseball and have fun with it. (7) Be a good teammate and play for my team. (8) Don’t have a bad game on the mound this year. (9) Help somebody when they are down but don’t try to be the disciplinarian. (10) Play hard, play good, but play for God.

3. Select the ine goal that could have the greatest positive impact on your life if you were ro achieve it, and write it down at the top of another piece of paper.

Graduate high school and decide on a college.

4. Make a list of everything you could do to achieve this goal, organize it by sequence and priority, and then take action on it immediately.

I can be a diligent, responsible, hard working student and strive for academic achievance in all of my classes. Then in my free time decide on what college is right for me depending on goals, environment and majors.

5. Practice mind storming by writing out twenty ideas that could help you achieve your most important goal, and then take action on at least one of those ideas.

Don’t give up, overcome adversity and always try to become better at something than the last time.

6. Resolve to do something every day, seven days a week, to achieve your most important goal.

7. Continually remind yourself that “failure is not an option.” No matter what, resolve to persist until you succeed.
