“Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.”
Roy L. Smith
I used this quote just over a year ago (link here) and it is just so powerful that I had to use it again.
All the talent in the world isn’t going to make you successful over the long term. One must constantly and continually refine your talents so that you can turn it into your desired results. The discipline to do the hard work is what turns talent into action and that is what translates into the results you desire. Without discipline you won’t be able to grow and transform as the world changes around you.
