How discipline affects Success?
Without discipline, success is impossible. Few ways discipline can help you achieve your goals:
1. Helps you stay focused on your mission
What Impact do you want to create in the world. Discipline would help you stay focused on that mission.
2. Pushes you towards your goals
The relationship betwen discipline and success is that increasing your level of discipline leads to greater success.
It doesn't matter if you feel scared - once you're disciplined to keep pushing and committing to your goals - you achieve those goals despite how you feel.
Face the fear and make the decision anywhere through discipline.

There's a momentum successful people have that unsuccessful people only dream about.
For you to achieve such momentum you need discipline, a lot of sacrifice and setting your priorities right.
You can't keep up with what you don't prioritize.
