Two types of pain and we get to choose

 

Any degree of pain is unpleasant -that is unless you’re some one who gets pleasure from the infliction of pain and that is a whole different subject altogether.
Today, my post is directed to the pain of discipline and the pain of regret.
We all know that to activate discipline takes work, it takes an individual effort to give 100% into something because we want to achieve something that will benefit us.
In the area of fat loss and getting health or healthier, discipline has to come into play in regards to our eating and exercising. We usually fail terribly in those areas because we start running instead of starting off with baby steps like eating less, using less salt, sugar, etc and commit to exercising 5 days a week for 60 min each day instead of starting off with 3 days a week for 30 min per session.
The pain that is involved with this discipline will deliver a reward that can be embraced and enjoyed; not forgetting the new lease on life, increased self confidence, energy to spare and the positive affect it will have on those around you. The pain of discipline is a temporary; it is felt periodically throughout the process, but is replaced with the joy, thus the discipline ends up being a good thing despite the pain involved. The pain of discipline produces pleasure at the end.
 
On the other hand the pain of regret is lasting – this pain lives with you, you can’t run from it, though at times you can hide it, cover it up from the world, but it is known to you. This pain eats at your core and unfortunately it is something you can’t avoid.  It comes out in your relationships even if you try to guard against it, it is seen in the way you speak, and how you dress. This pain takes from you and in end result is misery.
 
So, we’re down to the wire – we’ve concluded that no one enjoys any form of pain, but in this arena we get to choose which pain is worth it. Which will you choose? the pain of discipline or the pain of regret?
Remember, the pain of discipline is temporary and comes with a beneficial reward.
The pain of regret will last for as long as you decide and comes with a no reward-correction, it’s self inflicted misery.
The beauty about all this is that as individuals we get to choose-hope you select the right pain!
