Discipline Has to Come from Within

At one point I decided I wanted to exercise more regularly.  I was convinced that my failure to exercise thus far was caused by a lack of resources to help motivate me and was unrelated to self discipline.  I found a user-friendly app with a nice variety of exercises and stretches.  I downloaded it excitedly and was glad to have a resource to assist with my goal. 

As it turns out, it’s really easy to ignore a small icon on your phone.  I used the app exactly zero times.

Note to self: External resources don’t automatically make you succeed.  Developing self discipline requires an internal commitment.
