The definition of discipline, according to the dictionary, is training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character. It is control gained by enforcing obedience or order in a prescribed pattern of behaviour.
I am a very disciplined person. I believe that's one reason long distance running and I are friends. I religiously follow my training schedule. I hope to BQ the 30 April 2011.
It's been said that punishment lasts an hour; discipline lasts a lifetime. Thanks Mom and Dad for teaching me discipline! :)
