The only way to make a change is if you feel some degree of pain. That may not sound motivational, but until the pain of remaining the same outweighs the pain of making the change, that’s when you will change.
So how do you make that change? You have to do what you have to, when you have to, whether you feel like it or not. This concept by Elbert Hubbard, American writer and Philosopher gets to the root of how to make a change. It’s discipline.
If you want to change a behavior you have to do things that you don’t want to do when you don’t feel like doing it, whether you like it or not. Otherwise you spend your life in one of two zones, the pain of discipline or the zone of regrets. Do you want to look back at your life and say I wish I had done? What zone are you going to live in?
