I don't know about you, but sometimes I just don't feel like shooting the shit. After a long camping trip when everyone's in close quarters for a few days, people are quiet on the ride home. Now somebody in that car's going to get their feelings hurt because nobody's talking to them. Strange, huh?
One time, a German friend asked me "If a stranger asks me how I'm doing, do they really care about how I'm doing?"
You may think I'm crazy, but our language has a negative connotation to words we use when we want to move ahead in life. Words like discipline and commitment.
See if this sounds familiar:
"I need to watch my salt content but I lack discipline." "I really need to work out every day, I wish I had motivation".
I looked up the word discipline on dictionary.com, and I found words like regimen, military, drill, correction, punishment.
How does this sound:
"Hey I started a new training regimen. I'll have punishment inflicted on myself for correction if I don't do it right."
If you're good in school, you're a nerd; if you're in shape, people say "I wish I had your motivation". Discipline has a reputation for something those "other" people do. Something we can't do, because we lack discipline, need motivation, don't know how to commit.
