Self Discipline


Self Discipline

Bunda, everytime I go back home from school, I will put my bag in my room, then I’ll bathe, salat, and then take a nap, right?”

“Yes. And?”

“Do you remember my friend, Z? Everytime he comes back from school, he will only do 2 things. Throw his bag down on the floor, and then turn on his computer to play games.”

“How do you know this?”

“He told me when he came to our house, Bunda. Do you remember the day you asked him to salat with me? He saw what I was doing then he told me that he only does those 2 things. He didn’t even put his bag properly. He will just throw it down on the floor and let the parents pick it up for him.”

“Hmmmm … so, which attitude do you think is better? Yours or his?”

“Of course mine.”

“Do you know why?”

“Because … mmm … because … I don’t throw my bag anyhow and let you pick it up?”

“Why do you think I teach all of you self discipline?”

“Because discipline makes our life easier?”

“Correct.”

Disiplin membuat hidup menjadi jauh lebih mudah, Nak. Terbiasa melakukan sesuatu dengan teratur akan membuatmu terbiasa rapi dan well organized. Ini akan sangat membantumu kelak.

Mungkin segala aturan dan pelajaran hidup dari Bunda hari ini terdengar berat dan sulit. Namun semua ini akan terasa hasilnya ketika kelak kalian dewasa dan harus mengatur hidup sendiri, jauh dari Bunda dan Ayah. Percayalah.

Hidup Z, temanmu, mungkin terdengar lebih asyik dan menyenangkan saat ini. Tapi mungkin, ia akan kesulitan mengatur hidup dan waktunya kelak di kemudian hari. Hanya karena ia tidak terbiasa disiplin dan mengenal tanggung jawab sepertimu.

Self discipline is the main key to success. Trust me.
