Master The Disciplines Of Success

Do you ever wonder how some people actually rise from the lowest bottom to lead the world around them? It’s amazing! They are just like everyone else, and then BAM! Suddenly they are powerful! Then, everyone else says, “How did they do that?”

In this world, there are two kinds of people: struggling followers and strong leaders.

Everyone starts out struggling. I have struggled for a big part of my life. But, in recent years I have definitely shifted into the strong leader category! Let me show you how.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve lived far below your potential for far too many years. You’ve had what it takes to be on top of the world. But, you’ve only implemented a small fraction of the knowledge you have.

There are a thousand secrets to success. I’m not claiming to have the one end all secret. But this is a big one! For me, this is the spark that set the forest ablaze.

Here’s the secret:

You will master the disciplines of success, when you realize that others depend on you to lead the way. Until then, you will be weak and inconsistent, begging and wishing for others to carry you forward.

From this secret, there are 3 principles you should learn. To master the disciplines of success, you must learn these 3 principles.

1. Disciplines are “sparked” in people.

All big change is like this. When it happens, it happens fast. It starts in your spirit or in your mind. First a spark, then an all consuming fire that can’t be stopped.

Suddenly, the struggle is over, and you’re the expert. You’re the new teacher, mentor, and coach. Suddenly, you’re more disciplined than anyone you know. Everything you’ve seen others doing with ease, you are now doing with ease. It’s as if you’ve been given a superpower.

For me, the spark began as this epiphany I’m sharing with you now. I had just finished a 3 mile run, where I had confessed my 50 daily affirmations for the entire distance.

I felt more blessed and confident then ever in my life. I realized I had been like this for at least 6 months. So I asked myself, “How did I get here?”

As I listened for the answers, I heard these words in my head: You will master the disciplines of success, when you realize that others depend on you to lead the way. Until then, you will be weak and inconsistent, begging and wishing for others to carry you forward.

This was the spark for me. Perhaps it will be the spark for you.

2. Disciplines increase with a greater self-image.

You are supposed to be the new teacher, but you’re stuck thinking like a loser in the same old school desk chair.

You already know how to launch into orbit, but you lack the confidence to stand up and say, “I AM THE ONE!”

Remember I said, “You will master the disciplines of success when you realize that others are depending on YOU to lead the way.”

The older teachers have been passing away, and there has been room for you for a very long time. The only thing you need is a greater self image.

By this time, you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet I feel like you want me to reteach you the most basic things that God wants you to know. (Hebrews 5:12a The Voice)

Hurry up! Get it!

Because it’s your turn to be the man or woman everyone else wants to become. It’s your turn to LEAD THE WAY.

This is your natural next step. But, to take this step, you must believe it.

3. Disciplines generate a whole new way of life.

When you master the disciplines of success, you will wake up each morning on a schedule, and with a plan. You will follow that plan with stellar determination, and feel good about it.

When you master the disciplines of success, you will actually live a healthy lifestyle, instead of 2-3 failed diets each year. You will be the runner you’ve pretended to be.

When you master the disciplines of success, you will be the leading sales person in your company, or next in line for that huge promotion. You will create the exact kind of life you want to have. I promise.

You will be more focused, more balanced, and more successful then everyone in your circle.

These are 3 great principles for mastering success. They will work if you really learn them.

  1. Disciplines are sparked in people.
  2. Disciplines increase with a greater self-image.
  3. Disciplines generate a whole new way of life.

You can go from follower to leader right now! You can step straight into that new way of life from your dreams. It’s been within your reach for a very long time, and now it’s yours.

But, you must stop begging and wishing for others to carry you forward.

Believe that you are ready to rise and be powerful.

There are other strugglers out there longing for you to get the victory. They need you to lead the way, so that they grow into the change (and then lead the way for others).

This is your moment to be uncommonly powerful. No one can believe this for you.

Something radical wants to happen in your spirit and mind. When it happens, you won’t even recognize your own face in the mirror.

It sounds impossible, but you CAN be just as strong as those people you idolize.

Here is the secret, one more time:

You will master the disciplines of success, when you realize that others depend on you to lead the way. Until then, you will be weak and inconsistent, begging and wishing for others to carry you forward.

  1. In 12 months I will be graduated from school and on my way to a rewarding career helping others feel beautiful about themselves in the world of skin care. If I stop pretending I am a runner and go run way more than 1 or 2 times a week maybe I’ll finally be ready to run a half marathon where I can motivate others to get out and set their minds to a goal as well and accomplish that goal! I want to help others be beautiful not just on the outside and on the inside and in a healthy lifestyle as well.

    • Brandi, this is great! Congrats on your coming graduation. Yes, to the half marathon! Yes to living healthy and helping others feel beautiful about themselves. What a great future you have!

  2. Thank you for posting!!! When I read this, I sprung into action. It was the catalyst that motivated me. And, I even told someone else about the goal setting challenge. I forget what you called it, but I remembered what you said about setting goals: Set a daily goal. Set a weekly goal. Set a monthly goal. Set a goal for the year.

  3. WOW, Chuck! What a right on time word! This SPARKED me and I am ready to go! Thank you so much for writing and sharing it.
