The Disciplined Man: 50 Hardcore Discipline Quotes To Get You Moving

Man push through limits

“The more disciplined you become the easier life gets”… “Anyone who has ever made anything of importance was disciplined.”

Contrary to popular belief, knowledge is not power. Discipline is.

You can learn all there is to learn and know everything one could possibly know, you can be talented beyond belief, but if you don’t take action on those learning and talents, then you’ll be no more powerful than the young child still learning his ABCs. And while action-taking is crucial and is often conflated with discipline, it is discipline that is the true driving force behind success.

Defined as the the ability for a person to control his feelings and overcome his weaknesses, as well pursue what he thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it, self-discipline is what get’s you to take action towards a certain goal when there is no motivation or drive to do so. It is the steel with which good habits are formed, habits that determine what we become.

Without knowledge and/or talent, there is no potential; without action, there is no realization of that potential; and without discipline, there is no action, so it is imperative that you make a disciplined lifestyle the backbone for achieving your full potential and everything you want in life.

Here are 50 inspiring discipline quotes to get you off your butt, make self-improvement a life-long goal, and go after your dreams and desires.
