What Mister Rogers Taught Me About Discipline

And why it's a practical lesson for every human being.

Mister Rogers quote about discipline

I couldn't believe it when I read this quote in The World According To Mister Rogers.

Mister Rogers ... THE Mister Rogers ... had to sometimes dig deep and "do it anyway", even when he didn't feel like doing it, just like me??

The Mistake

I've sometimes been tempted to think that some people, like the incomparable Mister Rogers, have this innate ability to stay true to their goals without the struggle.

But that's just not true.

We all have to walk the road of discipline if we want to make changes in our lives.

Doing It Anyway ...

Even when we don't feel like it.

Like Mister Rogers Said:

It sure is a good feeling after we've tried and done something well - not by magic, but by our own work.
