We tend to think discipline is doing something we don’t feel much like doing, but we suck it up and do it anyway, because it’s good for us or somebody or something else.
Quite the contrary. True discipline is finding that which we enjoy doing and then doing it. Suffering is not a by-product of discipline nor a requirement.
Discovering our talents and applying them effectively is the effort exercised in the discipline process, that brings us joy not despair, desperation or dread.
Discipline liberates. It does not enslave as one might think.
