Earl Nightingale says: “ the disciplined hates the undisciplined”. And the question, although it is quite obvious to a serious thinker, is why. Why does a person, who see someone else living freely within their own created world, despair over the fact that this individual is living how he wants to live? That person will be called frivolous or foolish, or even misguided by the disciplined. Is it because this undisciplined individual just acts instead of just reacting? Now I’m not speaking of undisciplined individuals that create chaos and cause problems in his or her society. They will not be successful in doing that. Only when a person knows where they’re going , and when what they decide to do isn’t hurting anyone else, are they a true success. But I am speaking of this person who tries to escape the monotony of routines and schedules and other externally directed titles or roles. I am talking about the person who decides what he wants out of life more than anything else. And as he works towards this worthy ideal, as Earl Nightingale would say, he slowly drifts away from the junk that doesn’t work for him. All of these roles, that deep down in his soul, he dreads. He escapes from the crowd and works towards becoming more of himself. When I see the undisciplined persons who are themselves, I sense a feeling of warmth and humbleness in their character, almost like a child before it’s taught otherwise. These individuals go about their day in total bliss, embracing every bit of it, good and bad. While the disciplined individuals, tries hard to hold on to the titles and roles they hate, but fear to change. Just a thought, on an old idea.
