Discipline is a topic I refer back to again and again, both in my writing and in my talks, for a very simple reason. Without disciplining both your thoughts and actions, you are unlikely to achieve success, happiness or personal fulfillment.

Many people think that Mind Power is a magic wand, an easy way to manifest your goals; that you just “think” something a few times and soon it happens. I wish it were so, but it takes more than that. Mind Power is an effective and powerful tool in creating your reality, but it will only happen if you have the ability to do your exercises regularly and consistently, week in and week out, and follow up these exercises with action. And this will only occur if you have discipline. Discipline to persist with your mental exercises beyond the initial euphoria and novelty of working with your mind in this new way, and discipline to set and achieve weekly goals. As this website advises, “Mind Power is a practice, not a philosophy.”
