As a leader, you constantly have to speak and remind your team of the principles of success, and quotes add credibility to your speeches. Using sayings that great leaders and sages of the past have used before, add the extra impact to the point you are trying to make. Self-discipline quotes are quotes about the need to consistently discipline ourselves to a higher standard in order to achieve long-term success. These quotes I have chosen are specifically meant for this purpose. Use these quotes to inspire and motivate!
The only discipline that lasts is self-discipline.

Success is created through the performance of a few small daily disciplines that stack up over time to produce achievements far beyond anything you could of ever planned for. Failure, on the other hand, is just as easy to slip into.
