Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar
into four pieces with your bare hands-
and then eat just one of the pieces.
-Judith Viorst, submitted by Amy R., Downingtown PA
Maturity is the ability
to stick with a job until it’s finished;
to do a job without being supervised;
to carry money without spending it; and
to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.

There could be a project you are working on this week that needs an extra piece of “chocolate discpline.” Of course it can be difficult seeking your strength to resist temptation or to follow the path of most resistance and do the thing you NEED to do instead of the thing you WANT to do.
Remember that discipline is more of a SKILL than a personality trait and regardless of where you’re starting out, if you decide to practice this week you will be more disciplined on Friday than you are today.
