LESSONS FROM THE BOOK “DISCIPLINE IS DESTINY” BY RYAN HOLIDAY.

Discipline Is Destiny is a three-part manual to master and implement the Stoic virtue of discipline in your life, thus improving your body, mind, and spirit.

Lesson #1: {Taking charge of your body is the easiest way to build discipline, and you can take many small steps to do it.}

The reason discipline is most easily built by starting with small, physical challenges is that you can feel your body’s responses to those challenges. When you work out, you feel the result the next day. When you sleep early, you feel more rested. That’s a great way of sending yourself the feedback that, yes, building discipline is working and helping.

While Holiday suggests a variety of things, from eating lean to strenuous activities, like taking cold showers, working out, or walking the long route to work, to sleeping early, the most important is this: Show up.
