Disciplined Success

Discipline in the absence of motivation equals success; motivation doesn’t contribute to success. Motivation is a result of feelings. Feelings come and go. Discipline is a lifestyle. -Personalized Outfitters

You can be motivated to get a job done but without discipline you will be prone to execute without precision. Today challenge yourself to complete tasks with careful detail and thought. Gone is the attitude of “Well, at least I did it. I didn’t have to do it at all.” My response to that is, why did you? The last thing a paying customer wants is for someone to give them horrible service and to treat them as though they don’t matter. Now translate that paying customer’s attitude to the attitude of your every day responsibilities. Serve with love and discipline. There will be days when emotions overwhelm you due to feelings of inadequacy it will take discipline to get you moving. Clothe yourself with discipline like you should with wisdom. Let discipline be your best friend, your life line. Motivation is a prisoner to your emotions. Discipline will be there to guide you through the process. Let’s get it done. Discipline is key.

I am a year 2 elementary school teacher. Year one was very overwhelming and suprisingly successful. I work at a Title I school that is in "turnaround" status. My school is currently in a transitioning phase for personalized learning after having a much success this past school year. I have been selected as a model classroom for personalized learning at my school and I have presented at one of the nation's largest personalized learning conferences, PL Summit hosted by EdElements. I had a great first year and am now ready to share with you my journey.
