“Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure.”
-Jim Rohn


It refers to the training of people to obey rules or a code of behavior.
Discipline is the ability of an individual to reflect societal values and expectations in activities as to when, how and where such activities are to be done.

Discipline isn’t about getting what you want, it’s about knowing that life is not a bed of roses, knowing that for every wrong and mistake there is always a consequence.

Even the Christian doctrine supports this in Proverbs 13:24 “he who spares accountability hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him”

In another translation, it says: “He who hates his child spares the rod, but who loves his child is diligent to discipline him”.

I also see discipline as another word for proper home training.
A disciplined person doesn’t harbor things like lateness, examination malpractice, dirtiness, lying, cheating and many other things.
While, self-control, contentment, honesty, cleanliness, punctuality, etc. are attributes of discipline.

With all these, I believe all of us as parents, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts and even teachers in fact everyone should develop this sense of discipline so it can be passed down to the younger and upcoming generation.
