If You Do Not Conquer Self, You Will Be Conquered By Self

Greek philosopher Plato said, “The first and the best victory is to conquer your own self.”

Travellingwithin and winning over yourself is the greatest victory. Discipline always shorts the distance between you and your accomplishment. What we are that discipline helps us to tap it and to put across the globe our potentiality. We cannot reach up to the fullest potential level without discipline.

“Jones was 14 when he mastered the game of golf but he was 21 when he mastered himself. He was good enough to win over the tournament of golf but he was not able to control his temperament.” Said English Henry Parry Lidden.

The greatest victories are internal ones. “If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.” Said Napoleon Hill.

Discipline will lead up to plan our future life. In true sense, discipline helps us In designing our destiny.

However great you are and how ever potential you are but you cannot tap your potentials up to maximum level without discipline. Potentiality is never enough to become legend or icon. We have to discipline dour self and we have to frame our selves to achieve decided goals and maximization of potentials. Discipline word came from German word “Disciple”. He who controlled him self will control the world.

The biggest tragedy in my eyes is we die with unused potentials and its burn with us. We can advance our selves and we can make the bridge between potentiality and accomplishment through discipline. World comes to know about our talent through discipline. It enables us to optimize potentiality which leads us to accomplishment.

“Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.” asserted Roy L. Smith Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day. Discipline certainly helps us in showing to the world that what I am and what I can accomplish.

“Discipline enables us to follow up and accomplish the things which are pre determined. Greatness is inside us and we can show to the world by fixing an appointment with discipline,” said Harry S Truman quotes (American 33rd President of the United States, 1884-1972).

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment. Discipline certainly helps us in showing to the world that what I am and what I can accomplish.

“Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.” Shouted Buddha.
