Nietszche: Obey Yourself - Monday Motivation
Self discipline is the foundation for any success, whether you're born with natural talent or not. Self discipline is the vector for greatness. It is the difference between the Human mind that can envision and implement long-term goals; and the mind of an animal that seeks only to fulfill immediate, baseline needs and desires.
Nietzche wrote at length on the difference between "Master" morality, and "Slave" morality. But on a larger scale, in the hierarchy of life on this planet, Humans are the masters and animals are the slaves. This isn't a moral judgment on the state of things, just a statement of fact. So why the **** would any creature who had the option to be a Human, allow themselves to be limited by their animal nature?
If you find yourself avoiding effort, seeking temporary comfort at the sacrifice of eventual greatness, then you're no different than any other animal, save for the potential you're wasting.
Obey yourself, or you'll end up obeying someone else.
