Warning: Please replace any words that you may be uncomfortable with, with their synonyms that work for you. These are the words that work for me.

Here is the BIG IDEA: Build great lives... with secret disciplines.

1. Give discretely.
2. Pray secretly.
3. Fast quietly.
4. Suffer patiently.
5. Invest Eternally.

POWER NOTE: Secret disciplines produce lasting rewards and instant well being.

To do this, it takes...
Faith,
Hope for the future and
Love for others.

How can you apply this?
Build with your focus on the future (vision, dreams, plans, etc), not fear of the future.
Deny yourself. Live the sacrificial life (attainment by sacrifice).
Don't cut corners in relationships (build equity).
Make satisfaction and gratification a blessing instead of a focus.
Understand the role of "delay".

4. Suffer patiently.

What exactly do you mean?

One can interpret this as deep as is needed for themselves, but look at the literal meaning from a dictionary: Experience or be subjected to something unpleasant and be able to wait without becoming annoyed or anxious.

To get to where you really want to be, immediate sacrifices reap the final rewards.

Some business related examples for me:
1. I sacrifice time spent with my family to build my business. My reward will be to do more with and for my family later.
2. I sacrifice time working at my JOB. My reward is a higher income to be able to invest more in my business' and do things with my family (when I am not applying #1)
3. I sacrifice time spent learning. My reward is my self development, personal knowledge and education (and hopefully saving some unnecessary costs).
4. I sacrifice money spent on my business' instead of buying doodads (sometimes). My reward is more income (or better doodads that I will not owe money on) later from a successful business.

This application applies to everything in life, not just business.
