A Terrible Punishment

Whenever you need to push yourself, when laziness keeps you in bed or FOMO pulls you into different directions or boredom showers you with distractions, remember this:

“Failing to realize your full potential is a terrible punishment.”
- Ryan Holiday, Discipline is Destiny

Can you bear that thought? Knowing you have so much potential, but it's only going to waste? That you can't transform into this successful version of yourself because you'd rather indulge in short-term pleasures?

When you don't become better, you have only yourself to blame.

The potential is there. Don't let it go to waste.
