A short story that will show you the benefits of discipline & dedication.
The story of the great flutist Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. Panditji during his early childhood was majorly into Kusti (wrestling). He used to go to the akras and participate in Kusti bouts. But he also loved playing his flute. Panditji opted to pursue playing the flute. I had heard him in an interview that he used to get up daily at 4am. And then the whole day he practiced playing the flute. He maintained the discipline without any compromise. His dedication was full. Nothing in this world could attract his attention. It was as if the flute had become his life. He had decided to be the best and he did not compromise in his discipline and dedication. And this resulted in the delivery of music from a master flutesman. The decision to play the flute, followed by the discipline and the dedication to master the flute and then delivering some of the best music on the flute that the world has ever heard had changed the destiny of Hariprasad Chaurasia. From Hariprasad the master became Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, who the world salutes for his music on the flute.
It is very important to understand that once you decide to do something, you need to discipline yourself. Discipline brings the best out of every human being. Then one needs to be fully dedicated to practice the discipline. Once decision has been taken, discipline and dedication strengthens to make a complete delivery. One needs to master the craft which he wants to perform. And that comes only with the combination of the four D’s. Decision, Discipline, Dedication and Delivery. And once all the four are in place the destiny of a man changes. So take a conscious decision today of what you want and then follow it up with discipline and dedication, you are bound to give your dream delivery which shall change your destiny.
This motivational short story will help you to understand the power of Dedication & commitment. Be committed in your life and see the success will follow you.
