Can Self discipline induce Passion?
While I must agree with Steve, the tried and true method of achieving results is self discipline and passion is the icing. However, it should be noted that self discipline and passion would achieve better results if coupled. Ideally, we all should strive towards having both in achieving the best results no matter the endeavor. My question is this: If self discipline is constant and passion is fickle, could one use self discipline to induce passion?

If you use your self-discipline to gain control your emotions, yes. You'd be able to summon any emotion you wanted at will.
Take an object you're neutral toward, like a small block of wood, and try summoning an emotion and then return to a neutral state. Eventually you'll be able to evoke any feeling on command.
Do keep in mind that feeling passionate all the time isn't desirable. For one, you'd eventually become accustomed to it and the benefits would be reduced, if not totally disappear. Second, you'd risk burn out. It's nearly impossible for a person to stay sane through sustained heightened emotion. It's like arousal that lasts for more than a few hours- it's great until you need to go to the doctor.
