To master anything, one must first become master of their own ideas, feelings, and behaviours. Eisenhower is credited with saying that freedom is actually just the chance to exercise self-control. The temperance virtue was described by Cicero as the polish of life. Without limits and self-control, we run the risk of not only falling short of our potential and compromising our accomplishments, but also of ensuring pain and shame. This age-old concept is more pertinent than ever in a society of temptation and excess.

In Discipline is Destiny, Holiday draws inspiration from historical figures like Lou Gehrig, Queen Elizabeth II, boxer Floyd Patterson, Marcus Aurelius, and author Toni Morrison as well as cautionary tales from people like Napoleon, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Babe Ruth to show us the importance of self-discipline.
