It makes you a disciplined person.
I think when you find yourself going through chaotic situations, you're forced to focus on the basics. Enough time doing that and you'll find yourself focusing on what you need to focus on a majority of the time.
As an undisciplined person (well, less disciplined than I'd prefer to be), I found this to be a huge blessing. I can now tell myself no, not yet and - more critically, yes. Because as I've learned, knowing when and how to say yes is a powerful thing.
