Nurturing culture of discipline

Mar 7, 2012, 2:28 PM

It has been stated that discipline is the most important thing in life everyone should nurture.

Discipline in doing things the right way, whether someone is watching or not is an acceptable norm and consistent with society’s values.

Self-discipline is one of many personal development tools that each and everyone should develop.

Self discipline is vital for achieving personal goals and success, overcoming negative habits, sticking to your decisions, and following them through.

It’s a fact that people who live without discipline die without honour.

In fact, lack of discipline leads to frustration and self-loathing.

Indiscipline brings a lot of bad luck, and brings a person backwards.

We therefore urge parents and teachers to continue nurturing discipline among our children. With that they could become responsible future leaders.

Discipline helps a person both at home, in school or at the workplace, and equally contributes to societal peace and harmony.

Our children must learn to respect their parents, elders and teachers at all times.

Disciplined boys and girls are usually admired by their parents, teachers and the society, while the indisciplined suffer the opposite.

Smoking at a very tender age, stealing, lying, running away from home, disrespect to elders, indecent dressing, staying away from class deliberately, among others, are all categorised as signs of indiscipline, and must be avoided by our youth.

It is also often said that if a person lacks discipline, the real world will teach him a lesson.
