I’ve arrived at a place in my life where a tantalizing possibility has begun to arise: those who practice discipline in a variety of domains can help others out, for they are strong. They can solve others’ problems, for they are astute. They can be compassionate when others are spiteful, for they are detached. They can give of their wealth, for they have restrained their cravings.
Lastly, they can inspire the low, for they were once low themselves, and have marked a perch in the annals of possibility.
Discipline isn’t just something to keep me fulfilled. It is a tool through which, if I am blessed enough to tap enough of my potential, I could potentially spread fulfillment to others.
