March 10: The Happiness Myth

Day 22


You cannot be happy without discipline.


Rate the level of discipline in your life. If you want to increase the level of fulfillment and happiness in a certain area of your life, increase your level of discipline in that area of your life. (If you have the 2018 BEST LENT EVER Journal, you can use the rating chart provided.)

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 119–123 (paperback version) or pages 125–129 (hardcover version).


Jesus, help me to live out the words of St. Paul: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23).

What area of your life needs discipline?
