7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7 NIV)
He who lives without discipline dies without honor. (The Havamal)
We all recognize the value of having discipline in our lives. However, how often we allow ourselves to just live on autopilot. We do not employ any discipline to move toward a goal, we simply exist.
This may be ok for a while, but should not be a recipe for life. Instilling some level of discipline in our lives gives us power over our lives.
