Discipline or Regret?

Jim Rohn was famous for a quote about pain, essentially saying that there are two types of pain: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The good news is you get to choose.

We can choose to eat healthy and as a result have good health. Or we can choose to make sure that we get exercise so we feel better. Or we can discipline ourselves to do the hard work or learn how to do our jobs better.

If we don’t do those things, we get a different pain—the pain of regret. The one where we don’t have our health, when we’re not performing at work. So, we always have the choice—choose wisely.
