20 Top Self-Discipline Quotes

These are 20 of the top self-discipline quotes I have found in my research.

As a leader, you constantly need to speak and remind your team about principles of success and quotes add credibility to your speeches. By using sayings that great leaders and wise men of old have used before, you add the extra impact to the point you’re trying to make.

Self-Discipline Quotes are quotes about the need to constantly discipline ourselves to a higher standard to achieve success in the long run. This quotes I have chosen are specifically meant for that purpose. Use these quotes to inspire and motivate!
