Desire Without Discipline You End Up Being Depressed

In case you wondered what I was up to this weekend.

Well, lots of fun things like eating yummy sushi (Tatyana made), looking for a new appartment in Odense (because we are relocating and moving in together with Tatyana) and (WOW) fishing in Middelfart (although no fish was caught it was a lot of fun).

See the photos.

By the way, on the way back to Copenhagen (from Middelfart) I was listening to the teleseminars by Jerry Clark. He was interviewing two of the most successful men of time: Les Brown and Tom Hopkins. Here are few things I took away from them:

* The key to success is really an ability to become self-motivated.

* Success recipe: Learn More > Serve More > Earn More > Save More > Give More

* Desire alone does not account anymore. Desire backed up with discipline is the way to success.

* “Desire without discipline you end up being depressed” (I think it is very powerful and true)

* Do what you fear most

* “Fearing to fail is worse than failure itself”

* (from interview with Les Brown) MIT research has done a study that proved that a negative comment has 16 times a more powerful effect than a positive statement. This means that if somebody tells you something negative or if you’ve heard/seen something negative on the Radio/TV, you have to hear/see/read something positive for 16 times to compensate that ‘damage’.

We live in the world of negativity, we talk about it, we hear and see it everyday. We are the product of negative thinking. We are raised that way. No wonder that 95 procent of all people on the earth will not fulfill their dreams and thus lives. They may “live full but die empty”. Les Brown referred to another successful man who says that the wealthiest place on this earth is not the place with lots of oil or gold or any similar sort of things but the cemetery where people are buried with zillions of dreams, genius ideas, thoughts that they never put in place.

Think about it!

    Thanks Xinyan …I am really happy you enjoy the blog. I also love this saying i.e. “Desire without discipline you end up being depressed”. It is so true and applies to many of us. We always want, desire or wish … a sense of willingness always prevails a sense of discipline and continuous action-taking (no matter what it is). In the same line, I also love this saying (don’t remember by who though), here it goes: “Knowing is not enough; we must apply, willing is not enough; we must do.” And ‘must do’ is where most of us fail. It’s sad but still a fact. Despite all this, I see a wave of awakening on the horizon. I sincerely believe it is going to turn into a bigger one ;)
