The 3 D’s

These three D’s will change your life, as they have changed mine.
Learning to live them, putting them into action everyday, not necessarily perfectly, just consistently will make a difference. One decision at a time.

Hello, My Friends
Welcome to Episode # 29

Today’s podcst is a recording of a speech I gave last week.
It’s a bit scratchy but I think the message is worth hearing.

The 3 D’s
Master these three aspects of your personality and you can master anything.
What are these three things:

When I began my journey of self discovery I was undisciplined, I would not take any responsibility for my life.
some would say I was living in the victim mode of being.
I was dedicated, to the harmful aspects of my personality- like negative self talk, laziness, and balmae.
Being diligent wa not a word that I would have used to describe myself.

I had an elderly neightbour, Mr Cawley, how would lean over the fence and chatter away to the children.
One day, he called me over, I was frazzled, and he was stopping me from getting things done.

he leaned over closely, “Linda”, he said. “If you use these three D’s, your life will change.
I half-heartedly listened, what does a 10 year old man know.
Huh, such youthfulness, such foolishness.

He explained, if I mastered the art of inner discipline, nothing outside of me would faze me.
If I became didligent in the little things, the big things would take care of themselves.
Instantly I thought about money and budgeting.
If I dedicated myself to something bigger than myself, my life would have more meaning.

For the longest time I struggled to put these in place.
My life heritage was a strict religious background and everything I kneew was based on how things looked, and a ‘relationship with a strict deity.’

Discipline was something doe to your, under the guise of being good for you. I rebelled against rules of any knid, until I figured out he was talking about me making the rules for my life.

I get to make decisions on how I want to live.
Inner discipline comes from loving myself- it’s what I do for myself reather than what I am told to do.

Diligence was the day to day, following the routine I had set out for myself, until it became a habit, he was so right, by taking care of the little things while they were little, life became less chaotic.

Dedication is choosing something that I believe in, and that I am willing to give myself to.
This is am interesting cpncept, because we can dedicate ourselves to a cause, not because of the cause, but from what we give and receive from the giving.

Learning to dedicate my time and money, my energy and my soul to helping people is giving me meaning and purpose, which has a compounding effect.

So in conclusion.

These three D’s will change your life., like they have changed mine- if you will put them to work for you.


Discipline yourself from within and nothing will faze you.
Be Diligent with the little things and the big things will be less chaotic.
Dedicate yourself to somethng bigger than yourself, to find meaning and purpose.
