Compassionate Self-Discipline

There are two types of self-discipline.

One is strict, harsh, and punishing.

"You're a failure if you quit." "Do not give into weakness." "Your lack of resolve is pathetic."

The other is compassionate, supportive, and nurturing.

"Deep down, I know this is what I really want." "I will ask for help if I need it." "I know I cannot fail if I do this with love."

Compassionate self-discipline is nothing other than being present, rather than engaged in distracted, unfocused, addictive behaviors based in an I-need-to-fix-myself mentality.

We don't lack self-discipline.

We lack presence.
