Having discipline is never fun. At least, not usually. But is it better to suffer the pain of having discipline and making sacrifices to get where you want to be or to suffer pain from the regret you feel because you never did enough to get there? This quote, by Jim Rohn, answers this question. The pain of discipline is not nearly as bad as the pain of regret. One weighs on us more than the other. Perhaps we don’t feel the pain of regret right away, but eventually we do. Therefore, instead of avoiding the pain of discipline, let’s think about how much worse we’ll feel when we regret.
