Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting around for somebody to give you flowers"

Just came home from my Sat morning lecture.
A few directors of established companies came to speak to us about entrepreneurship.
After the forum session, I went to approach the director of PropNex.
Me: Hi sir, can I ask, how do you cultivate self discipline?
Mr Ismail: Let me give you an example. Would you want to lose weight?
Mr Ismail: If i can grant you three wishes, whatever you'd like them to be. It might be a million dollars, or whatever. But I have a request, and that request is for you to lose weight. And I'll grant you the three wishes. Would you lose 10kg in 3 months for me?
Me: Sounds pretty tempting.
Mr Ismail: There you go. Discipline people usually have a driving force behind them. You have to find the driving force for yourself. You need motivation, but you don't cultivate it, you FIND it.
Makes sense. Makes alot of sense.
