Discipline is a source of emotional security.
When I am disciplined enough to prepare well, I can walk into situations with the confidence required to succeed. How much emotional insecurity is spawned from a habit of undisciplined choices and behavior? How many times are we insecure because we compromised and try to fake it like we didn’t? How many times did we walk into a situation unprepared and felt threatened by those who prepared well? Insecurity is poison on a team. Discipline is a potential antidote to that poison.
