there's one more little topic that I wanted to bring up and really it's it's

another question that I got it at jockle live and I got this question or a

version of this question a couple of different times and they all they all a

couple different versions of this question but the same question and the

question is it's something like this something along the lines of I've been

pretty successful at this point in my life and I'm having trouble finding the

motivation to take it to the next level so you know it's like people I say oh so

you you know you make decent money yep but a couple yeah we're doing really

well and you work it out yep I'm a healthy yep I'm good and your family's

taking care of you have a good time with my family but you're not able to like

get the extra work out you're not you know you're skipping some days you're

not eating great you're not making the calls that you need to make you're not

expanding your eyes and that's what's going on right and so that's we're

getting we get someone that's sort of in a good spot kind of across the board

right kind of in a good spot across the board and so I'd kind of established

that fact that they're in a good spot across the board mm-hmm

and then I'd say but it sounds like you're in a good spot across the board

are you happy with that and are you comfortable with where you're at and the

answer would be no and then I'd say well are you sure and then it's a young

Chiron you know I want to do more and then I said

that's a lie that's a lie that's a lie because if you really weren't happy and

you really wanted to improve your health even more and you really wanted to

improve your financial situation more and you really wanted to just broadly

improve your life then you wouldn't have any problem at all finding the

discipline the discipline would actually find you that's where I'm at that that

you want to know what people like oh you don't see pretty much you want to know

why cuz this one finds me cuz I know I will I know I can do more and I want to

do more and I know I'm not happy where I'm at and comfortable where I'm at so

if you're telling yourself no I'm not happy where you're at then I'm gonna

tell you that's actually a lie you are comfortable you are comfortable because

if you weren't comfortable then it would drive you the discipline would show up

now this is where I kind of I I kind of have to go a little bit deeper so but

what I just said if you tell yourself the truth then you'll find discipline

the framework of discipline is the truth the framework of discipline is the truth

and I have to go and I didn't do a good job when I got asked this question I

didn't do a good job of connecting all the dots because it actually is one

level deeper it's one level deeper and it looks like this if you're saying that

you can't find discipline and I'm telling you it's because that's because

you are comfortable where you're at and that is also a lie

that is also a lie look telling yourself that you don't need to get out of bed in

the morning telling you something you don't really need to work out or you

don't need to go Harger or you don't need to do more in your job or be more

discipline in the way that you live if you tell yourself those things that's

actually a lie because the fact of the matter is think about this the fact the

matter is that you're not comfortable you're not happy you're not ok with

where you're out because that's why you're asking this question right now

you're asking this question because you know you can do more you know you can be

more and that's the truth that's the truth and it eats you up and it makes

you ask these questions ask the question to me and ask the question to yourself

and the answer is the truth you know it I know it we all know it that the

framework of discipline is the truth if you tell yourself the truth the real

truth the absolute categorical unconditional unabated unmerciful truth

if you do that you will find discipline

discipline equals freedom discipline is rooted in the truth the truth will set

you free

and what does that calculus work out to discipline equals freedom
