Reason #4 – Self Discipline


Defined by Cambridge Dictionaries Online as “the ability to make yourself do things you know you should do even when you do not want to”

trait/characteristic essential to a successful and stress free life See:  Successful People are Self Disciplined

The one thing I rather embarrassingly seem to have been absent for when it was being issued at creation :0) If you have ever seen or heard of the doughnut experiment I unfortunately am the guy who would eat the first doughnut – as much as I know that it is better to wait the 15 minutes and get two fresh doughnuts and as much as I hate knowing that I am like this grrrrrr (of course today I wouldn’t even eat the doughnut/s…okay just a little bite)

So there you have it my fourth and most probably profound reason for signing up for Ironman 70.3, developing self discipline to do the things I know I need to do, when I have to do them even though I don’t necessarily want to so that I accomplish my goals in the event itself and become a better, more successful person as a result of developing this habit

Would love to hear from you. Would you enter a crazy event purely to develop yourself?
