LESSONS FROM “DISCIPLINE IS DESTINY” BY RYAN HOLIDAY.

LESSONS FROM “DISCIPLINE IS DESTINY” BY RYAN HOLIDAY.

Lesson 2:{ We can only be happy when we practice restraint, and it’s a lifelong job to moderate our minds.}

Like our modern world is loaded with opportunities for instant gratification.

People want to fulfill their every desire immediately.

But if you’ve ever given in to those impulses, you know how empty and unrewarding that can ultimately feel.

When you order pizza every time you feel like it, you’ll get health problems. When you rage quit at work whenever your boss makes a snide comment, you’ll never build a meaningful career. And so on. Everything becomes meaningless when you do it all the time, so we need restraint to enjoy life’s pleasures to the fullest — and, therefore, moderating your minds is a lifelong job.

Hey! try to pause before you react, analyze your feelings, and learn to shut things out on purpose. Most of all, remember you’ll never be perfect. Mastering your brain is a job that will take forever — and that’s okay.
