Discipline is baed on pride, on meticulous attention to details and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is strongter than the eddcitement of the goal or the fear of failure.
The best way to be mediocre is to compare and try to reach your competitor. Never do that! Set your own benchmark. Let that be very high and go after it confidently! Do not let others set a standard for you. You've got to aim at being better than the best.
Someone will always break your records...it's how you live that really counts...How are you living?
Discipline is the ability to follow through on a resolution long after the emotions with which it was made have passed.
People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Champions execute the fundamentals with uncouscious competence. That means they've practiced the moves so many times in the past they they can do them almost perfectly without thinking about it. When you can perform brilliantly without thinking, you can create magic!
In the end its extra effort that separates a winner from second place. But winning takes a lot more than that too. It starts with complete command of the fundamentals. Then it takes desire, determination, discipline, and self sacrifice. And finally, it takes a great deal of love, fairness and respect for your fellow man. Put all these together, and they spell success. But then again, even if you don't win, how can you lose?
We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strage medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us-- how we take it, what we do with it--and that is what really counts in the end. How to take the raw stuff of life and make it a thing of worth and beauty. That is the real test of living!
An athlete experiences the emotions of pain and elation through triumph and defeat, through teamwork and individuality, as nothing more than a human being. That is the true glory of sport!
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change!
