Discipline is perhaps the hardest trait to have. We do not want to get up early and go to school or work. We don’t want to clean our room when we can be playing. Learning the art of discipline allows us to make those decisions and force ourselves to do the things we do not want to do. Discipline can also have the meaning of do something over and over again trying to achieve perfection – being disciplined to do your best.
Football just like life demands discipline; to do your job and not what you want to do, to hold your block or pass your homework in on time. Discipline is the cornerstone in which all other traits arise.
