When people think of the words “mind control,” they think of people controlling the minds of other people. Not me. I think about controlling my own mind. Sure, we are physical beings, and we must obviously embrace our physicality. But we are our minds. And I’m not going to go philosophical on what that means and where the “YOU” actually is —whether it is a soul.

About Book – Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book
Or your brain or your heart or some other conjured-up place. What I do know is this: You, your mind, the thing that is reading and comprehending these words right now, that IS YOU. And you can control it. You are the machine, and you can control it. People ask me, “How do I get tougher?” BE TOUGHER. “How can I wake up early in the morning?”
WAKE UP EARLY. “How can I work out consistently every day?” WORK OUT CONSISTENTLY EVERY DAY. “How can I stop eating sugar?” STOP EATING SUGAR. You can even control your emotions: “How can I stop missing that girl or guy or whoever broke up with me?” STOP MISSING THEM. You have control over your mind. You just have to assert it.

You have to decide that you are going to be in control, that you are going to do what YOU want to do. Weakness doesn’t get a vote. Laziness doesn’t get a vote. Sadness doesn’t get a vote. Frustration doesn’t get a vote. Negativity DOESN’T GET A VOTE! Your temper doesn’t get a vote. So next time you are feeling weak or lazy or soft or emotional, tell those feelings they don’t get a vote.
Where does the switch come from? The overdrive. The berserker mode. The full-on destroyer that will not stop? I think this is something that is learned. And it is a hard lesson and not everyone gets it. And it is an important lesson. A critical one. It is the thing that allows you to go the extra distance. To dig a little deeper. To push a little harder.

To get after it. And it actually takes two opposing forces to bring it to life. It takes both emotion and logic to reach your maximum potential, to really give everything you have, to go beyond your limits. Because emotion and logic will both reach their limitations. And when one fails, you need to rely on the other. When it just doesn’t make any logical sense to go on, that’s when you use your emotion.
Your anger, your frustration, your fear, to push further, to push you to say one thing: I don’t stop. When your feelings are screaming that you have had enough, when you think you are going to break emotionally, override that emotion with concrete logic and willpower that says one thing: I don’t stop. Fight weak emotions with the power of logic; fight the weakness of logic with the power of emotion.
Proactive and aggressive are similar and they are both good. You certainly have to be proactive in the world. You want to be dictating what happens, not responding to it. And yes: That means creating or controlling a situation as much as you can. But being aggressive—that means you are ready to attack. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book
As I always point out—this doesn’t mean you walk around with your chest puffed out ready to bang heads with everyone around you. It doesn’t mean you confront people, physically or mentally, head-on and without a tactically superior plan. It doesn’t mean you go straight forward into conflict without thought and without reason. It doesn’t mean you engage in attrition warfare—no.
That is almost never smart. What it does mean is that you are going to get after it. You are going to move fast. You are going to think fast. You are going to outthink and outmaneuver the enemy. If I think the enemy is going to attack me—I’m going to attack them first. If I think they are going to seize a piece of terrain—I am going to be there waiting for them.
If I think the enemy is going to flank me—too late—I’m already flanking them. I don’t view aggression as an outward attitude. I view aggression as an internal character trait. A fire in your mind that says: I am going to win. I am going to battle and I am going to fight and I am going to use every tool I have to crush my enemy. And that tool might be fists, but it might be guile. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book
How do I handle those days when I’m just not “feeling it”? Those days when I am tired or worn out or just sick of the grind… What do I do on those days? I GO ANYWAY. I GET IT DONE. Even if I am just going through the motions— I GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS. Don’t really want to work out? I work out. Don’t really want to hammer on a project? I hammer on the project.
Don’t really want to get up and get out of bed? I GET UP AND GET OUT OF BED. Now—these could be signals that you need some time off—and those signals might be right. BUT—don’t take today off. Wait until tomorrow. Don’t give in to the immediate gratification that is whispering in your ear. SHUT THAT DOWN. DO NOT LISTEN. Instead: Go through the motions. Lift the weights.
Sprint the hill. Work on the project. GET OUT OF BED. I don’t like procrastination. But if you feel like you need a break—that is one thing you should procrastinate. Taking a break is the one thing I put off until tomorrow. And if—when tomorrow comes—you still feel like you need rest or you need a break—then go ahead: Take it. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book
Chances are you won’t—you won’t need that rest. Chances are you will realize that the desire to rest was just weakness—it was the desire to take the path of least resistance —the downhill path—the downward path. And by going through the motions, you overcame that weakness. And you stayed on the righteous path—the disciplined path— You stayed on The Warpath.
How do I deal with setbacks, failures, delays, defeats, or other disasters? I actually have a fairly simple way of dealing with these situations, summed up in one word: “Good.” This is something that one of my direct subordinates, one of the guys who worked for me, a guy who became one of my best friends, pointed out.
He would pull me aside with some major problem or some issue that was going on, and he’d say, “Boss, we’ve got this thing, this situation, and it’s going terribly wrong.” I would look at him and I’d say:“Good.” And finally, one day, he was telling me about something that was going off the rails, and as soon as he finished explaining it to me, he said, “I already know what you’re going to say.” Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book
And I asked, “What am I going to say?” And he said, “You’re going to say: ‘Good.’” He continued, “That’s what you always say. When something is wrong or going bad, you just look at me and say, ‘Good.’” And I said, “Well. I mean it. Because that is how I operate.” So I explained to him that when things are going bad, there’s going to be some good that will come from it.
Oh, mission got canceled? Good. We can focus on another one. Didn’t get the new high-speed gear we wanted? Good. We can keep it simple. Didn’t get promoted? Good. More time to get better. Didn’t get funded? Good. We own more of the company. Didn’t get the job you wanted? Good. Go out, gain more experience, and build a better resume.
Got injured? Good. Needed a break from training. Got tapped out? Good. It’s better to tap out in training than to tap out on the street. Got beat? Good. We learned. Unexpected problems? Good. We have the opportunity to figure out a solution. It wasn’t in a war. It wasn’t in a battle. It isn’t in a melee of fire and destruction that most of us succumb to weakness. We are taken apart, slowly. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book Download
Convinced to take an easier path. Enticed by comfort. Most of us aren’t defeated in one decisive battle. We are defeated one tiny, seemingly insignificant surrender at a time that chips away at who we should really be. It isn’t that you wake up one day and decide that’s it: I am going to be weak. No. It is a slow incremental process. It chips away at our will —it chips away at our discipline.
We sleep in a little later. We miss a workout, then another. We start to eat what we shouldn’t eat and drink what we shouldn’t drink. And, without realizing it—one day, you wake up and you have become something that you never would have allowed. Instead of strong—you are weak. Instead of disciplined—you are disorganized and lost.
Instead of moving forward and progressing—you are moving backward and decaying. And those things happen without you seeing them. Without you recognizing them. So. You have to BE VIGILANT. You have to be ON GUARD. You have to HOLD THE LINE on the seemingly insignificant little things— things that shouldn’t matter—but that do. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book Download
There are indicators that tell you that you need to detach. If you start to feel your emotions boiling over that means you need to detach. Pay attention to your voice: Are you raising it? Pay attention to your body: Are you clenching your fists or grinding your teeth? Are you breathing heavily? These things mean that you are getting emotional. So, you need to detach.
Are you getting angry or jealous or frustrated? Those feelings are likely driven by your emotions. So, you need to detach. Are you feeling stuck or trapped? Do you feel like no one understands you? If you have those feelings, you likely need to change your perspective. Which means you need to detach. Once you recognize that you need to detach: Take a step back.
Physically change your perspective by stepping back. Put your hands at your sides. Lift your chin just a little bit. This opens your airway and forces you into a slightly vulnerable physical posture—a posture that is the opposite of a fighting posture, with chin tucked down, head lowered, and hands up. Instead of being in a defensive and protective mindset, your mind will be open—open to different perspectives. Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book Download
You ego will be exposed. Now look around—physically turn your head and take in your surroundings. Take some nice, big, slow breaths. Inhale deeply and exhale fully. Listen. Yes: Instead of talking, just listen. These steps should start you down the path of being detached. As you practice these methodologies, you will get better at them.
Eventually, you should be able to detach mentally without needing to detach physically by taking a step back or lifting your head or even looking around. You will be able to detach in your mind, and that will be enough. One last note: If you are going to speak but you want to remain detached, instead of making a statement try asking a question in a calm, controlled voice.
A statement plants you into the ground and removes your maneuverability; you become attached. A question keeps your mind open and allows you to remain detached. When you are detached from your emotions and ego and when you see things from other perspectives you are able to stay calm, see more, and make better decisions.

So I ask them: “Are you sure you really want to take it to the next level?” And they say: “Yes.” And I say: “I DON’T THINK SO. You see, if you really wanted to take it to the next level, you wouldn’t be asking this question. You would be out there getting after it. You wouldn’t have to try to find discipline. No. Discipline would find you. So you are lying to yourself.
Saying you want more. Saying you want to go to the next level. If you really wanted it, you would go get it.” The person then looks disappointed. They feel like maybe they aren’t truly driven. Then I continue: “But here is the reality. If you were truly happy and if you were truly content, you wouldn’t be asking these questions.
Those are the lies. The truth is that you know. You know. You know you could do more. You know you could give more. You know you could go harder. You know you could be more. And that is what is driving you crazy. That is why you ask this question. Because if you tell yourself the truth—the unfiltered, unbridled, and unmitigated truth—that you have so much more potential and that you could become so much more .Discipline Equals Freedom PDF Book Free
If you tell yourself that truth, the discipline will find you and you will not be able to get it out of your system. Stop lying to yourself. The Truth is the fuel behind the discipline. The Truth is what makes discipline unavoidable. The Truth delivers discipline. Discipline Equals Freedom. So: The truth will set you free.”
