Jocko Willink: The Relationship Between Discipline And Freedom
Schawbel: Can you talk about some of the mental and physical disciplines you practice on a daily basis?

Willink: No one wants to hear this, but step number one is to wake up early. That is where it starts. It does take discipline to get out of bed early, but that sets the tone and the pattern of discipline for the rest of the day.

The next thing to do is exercise — do something physical. Again, that takes discipline, but it gives you momentum in the right direction. Exercise also has real physiological impacts on the body and mind that pay dividends all day.

One of the best mental disciplines for people to implement is simply putting together a schedule or a task list and actually executing it. Write the list or the schedule the night before, and then do what you said you would do. Life becomes much better when you do that.

---

Schawbel: Can you share an example of how you transformed your life after creating a discipline and sticking to it?

Willink: Basically everything positive in my life has come from discipline. I didn’t make it through SEAL Training based on my natural athletic abilities; no, I had the discipline to train hard in preparation and then work hard during the training. My career in the SEAL Teams was not based on some intrinsic gift, but rather on the willingness to do what needed to be done, and to do that day after day. I did well in college not because of some supreme intellect, but because I had the discipline to study hard. When I was inspired to write books, that inspiration didn’t sit down and start typing for hundreds of hours; no, it was the discipline that actually put the words on paper.

And that is the real message: If you want to transform your life in a positive way, that transformation will not happen by itself. You need to make it happen. You need to do the work. You need to put in the hours, the days, the weeks, the months, and the years. You need to get on the path and stay on the path—the path that leads to the positive transformations, the path that leads to a better you, the path that leads to freedom.

And that path is the hard path. The tough path. The relentless path. It is the path of Discipline. And the path of Discipline is the only way. Discipline Equals Freedom.

A Different Take On Discipline
Many people hear the word “discipline” and instantly run the other way.  I say to think about it the opposite way: run towards it.  If you run towards discipline, this is what will happen…

Discipline creates LESS stress in your life because you are PREPARED.  When you are prepared, you give yourself a better chance at being successful.  This can be with your diet, training, business or in life.  Most people get stressed out because their life is out of order.  An uncontrolled chaos. 

When you run towards discipline you find out how good you COULD FEEL.  Not only how good you can you feel physically, but also how much better you could feel on the inside with your confidence.  That is the key.

If you start off your day with a high level of discipline, your confidence builds exponentially.  When people hear the word “discipline,” they automatically think that something is being taken away from them.  Guess what?  The world isn’t taking anything away from you.  When you have more discipline in your life, you begin to see that it actually gives back MORE because you are more aware of the opportunities right in front of you. 

People without discipline think, “If I have to eat this diet,” and “I should be able to have this if I want.”  If you do this, you are looking at it the wrong way.  I don’t have everything figured out, but if you knew how good you could feel by implementing this in your life, then you would run towards discipline.  If you knew how much you could accomplish with the sky being the limit, you would run towards discipline.  If you start to shift your perspective even a little bit to bring more discipline into your life, then it WILL TRULY CHANGE.
