“There are two types of pain, one that hurts you and the other that changes you.” Unknown

You and I have a CHOICE to make. Not just today, but with every waking moment of every day. We all have to CHOOSE OUR PAIN!

Yet, choosing the pain is not enough. We also must choose at what level of pain are we willing to live with when it comes to the pain we choose?

Our choice of pain, and the threshold in which we choose to bear it will determine two very significant things:

 ·      The outcome of our lives, and 

 ·      Our ability to lead. 

 

Ultimately, life comes down to two kinds of PAIN. We must choose wisely. A fulfilling life filled with the joyous pain of DISCIPLINE, or the frivolous fleeting moments that leave us reeling from the pain of REGRET?

Both will impact our success, greatness, and future generations. Our legacy is determined between these two pains of life. 

When it is all said and done, and we linger in the waning moments of life, will we pass with regrets, or will we rejoice at living a disciplined life?

The time has now come to choose:

 ·      WOULD YOU RATHER LIVE WITH THE PAIN OF REGRET OR WITH THE PAIN OF DISCIPLINE? 

“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.” Voltaire

“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” Jim Rohn
