The Financial Independence Now Podcast

Hosted by Randy Luebke

EP 0007. Disciple vs Desire

Welcome to Episode 0007, “Discipline vs Desire.” In this episode, we unravel a powerful truth: Discipline alone isn’t enough to sustain you on the path to achieving your most cherished goals. Discipline can get you started, but in the long run, you are going to need more than discipline to see you through to the end when you are trying to achieve almost any worthy goal.

In this episode of The Financial Independence Now podcast, we dive deep into the mindset required for achieving financial independence with our expert host, Randy Luebke. Randy throws discipline out the window and replaces it with a stronger and more powerful emotion, desire.  

Discipline works like a flashlight. You flip the switch and immediately the light goes on.  However, over a short period of time, the batteries wear down and the light goes out.  When this happens with your financial goals, you become distracted or discouraged and possibly give up on trying to achieve your goals altogether.

 Desire, on the other hand, works like two magnets irresistibly drawn to each other. As these magnets draw closer, their pull intensifies until they eventually snap together. With desire as your guiding force, giving up is not an option.  As you diligently pursue your goals, your desire to achieve them grows stronger and stronger. Ultimately, you become unstoppable. 

Topics Discussed:

  • Leveraging your emotions to help you to achieve your goals.
  • Envisioning the benefits of achieving your goals many years from now
  • Recognizing the consequences of not achieving them
