Master self-discipline in 40 days? Well, mastery is a tall order, and to be realistic, mastery generally takes a lifetime, not 40 days. So perhaps a better title would be “Introduction to Self-Discipline in 40 Days.” But every master has his starting point, and I don’t know about you, but I could use a starting point in Self-Discipline in my life right now.
A while back, I became introduced to Ron Pereira and Mike Short’s online apostolate, IntentionalEncounter.com, a site created by men, for men, to promote bodily and spiritual wellness. Fostering both spiritual and bodily wellness requires Self-Discipline, and I was elated to learn that they offer a free E-book that will take you on a 40 day journey to encounter Christ through your intentional and devoted commitment to physical and spiritual wellness. Sign up, and I hope you find it well worth it!
Good habits (aka virtue) and the Self-Discipline to maintain them is truly the heart of being a Catholic Gentleman on the path towards Manly Holiness. And so today, I want to recommend that you take a look and give it a try! Even better, team up with a few of your Manly Brothers and hold one another to the daily commitment. In fact, this would work VERY WELL for your LENT experience!
On a current and quick personal note, this is what I’m going to try this Lent and I’ll let you all know how it goes! The simple truth is, I need better habits and stronger discipline. If you do as well, check out IntentionalEncounter.com!
