Building the discipline of consistency, as I think about it, it’s probably the most important thing that you need to have. Today, most people do things based on how they feel.
“Oh yeah, I don’t feel like doing this,” which the world doesn’t give a crap about. But if you live a life by principles, every principle comes with the reward, and if you have the principle of, let’s say, you develop a principle of, “I will work two hours on my business every single day,” that’s a solid statement that has no emotions.
That’s a discipline. Focus less on how you’re feeling. I don’t think no one is dying to wake up at 8:00 a.m. in the morning, no one feels like doing it, but if you have to do it, you’ve got to do it whether you feel like it or not. Don’t give in to that popular belief of, “I’ll do things when I only feel right about it.”
That’s not how you build anything.
