How to not give up. How to get rid of that feeling of quitting from learning for an exam. Or, when you train for an upcoming competition. How to be more disciplined.
Jim Rohn, a famous speaker, said that everybody suffers from one of two pains:
You either are going to suffer from the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.
When you are studying for that test, and you just don’t want to continue anymore because you can’t stand the pain of boredom, or the headaches or whatever you are getting, so to relieve the pain, you quit. But that postpones the pain. It doesn’t get rid of.
The difference is that pain of discipline weighs ounces while the pain of regret weighs tons.
You always must be aware that weight of regret is higher than the pain of discipline.
When the exam or the competition comes, and you fail, you are going to feel the pain of regret that you wasted a lot of time on doing useless things.
You are going to regret that you left yourself or your family down, the pain of regret is terrible.
You are alleviating the pain of discipline temporarily. But you are not easing the pain of regret that is going to happen when you fail that test or lose that competition.
The advice is that get in your had delayed gratification. It is a hard thing to do because we want everything now.
Muhammad Ali quote: I hated every minute of training, but I said:” Don’t quit. Suffer and live the rest of your life as a champion”.
