HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 2009 7 ,:~ Just A Thought How disciplined are you in your lift By RICK KRAFT "The truth of the matter is that you. always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it." I agree with these words of wisdom by General H. N o r m a n Schwarzoff. It never ceases to amaze me how much we try to fool ourselves by twisting and turning things to suit our own purposes. Our lives are not so much about de- termining ~vhat the right thing to do is, our lives are about having the discipline to do the right things. Rick Kraft When God created us, He gave us free will. I sometimes wonder why He did this. Nev- ertheless, this is the way we were created. So on a spiritual level, we each have the power to choose our destiny We live in the great coun- try of America, a country that So with very broad bound- aries ek, ery one of us gets up each morning and ventures out into the world. What we accom- plish each day depends on each of us individually. What we ac- complish every day will be directly tied to our ability to life a life of discipline. Will power cannot be fur- nished by anyone but you. Walter Kiechel III wrote in Fortune magazine, "The best discipline, maybe the only. discipline that re- ally works, is self-dis- cipline," Life is an exercise court system. Unfortunately every day we read and hear about individuals who have lacked discipline in PaSt choices and now are facing discipline from outside themselves. Discipline is a learned be- havior. A newborn has no dis- cipline system on her own. The discipline System for children is set up by their parents. A child learns discipline (or should learn) as she grows and matures. This is learned from family, teachers, friends, and others a child associates with. If a child is not taught discipline, she will have a difficult life ahead. When a child leaves home to live on her own, she suddenly lives by in discipline. Without her own discipline system. That discipline a person is unable to is why the transition from the home nest to independence is so critical. If an individual has no dis- cipline, he is headed for a train wreck. The failure to have dis- cipline within your own life will cause you to not meet your po- tential. It may keep you from be a functioning member of so- ciety. It takes discipline to get out of bed each morning and to be at work on time. It takes dis- cipline to keep spending within one's income. It takes discipline to take care of one's body. It takes discipline to maintain a was founded on freedom of " close spiritual walk It takes dis- choice. We are encouraged to have free will as Americans. Any newborn baby during his lifetime can choose to be an ac- countant, she can choose to move to Delaware, he can choose to own his own business. she can choose to own land, he can choose to marry and have ten children, she can choose to write a book, he can choose to become a monk. she can choose cipline to continue to grow mentally. It takes discipline to make time for one's spouse or children A lack of discipline can cause sexually transmitted dis- eases, unwanted pregnancies. deaths, automobile accidents. heart attacks, juvenile delin- quents, divorces, lawsuits, busy hospitals, and broken family re- lationships. I like the saying, obtaining a job, maintaining a job, maintaining a marriage, or buying your dream home. It may cause you to become sickly or catch a disease, go on wel- fare, file bankruptcy, or even spend time in prison. It is possible to be disci- plined in some areas of your life and not in others, yet a strong discipline in one area is a likely indicator of an individual hav- ing a strong discipline in other A Picture FromThe Past Submitted by EDMUND SAUCEDOILordsburg !! test for leaks, tighten fittings, check all belts.
