High achievers usually have one obvious thing in common: personal discipline.
Successful people are willing to do things that most people are unwilling to do.
People who do the right thing even when they don’t feel like it accomplish most of what gets done in the world!
“A man without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls” Proverbs 25:28 (TLB).
“He who guards his lips guards his life” Proverbs 13:3 (NIV).
“If you are sensible, you will control your temper. When someone wrongs you, it is a great virtue to ignore it” Proverbs 19:11 (GNT).

“Live life, then, with a due sense of responsibility . . . Make the best use of your time” (Ephesians 5:15-16 Phillips).
The value of a budget is that it tells your money where you want it to go rather than wondering where it went!

“Every one of you should learn to control his own body, keeping it pure and treating it with respect”
(1 Thessalonians 4:4 Phillips).
