Discipline > Motivation | Building Better Habits

Motivation, by definition, is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way, or the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

I need to make it clear that motivation should not be relied on.

We all have those days or weeks where we are motivated to set goals and crush them.

But naturally we have more days where we wake up and don't want to do a thing.

For me, motivation is a hit or a miss.

Half the battle most of the time is just showing up.

Winning that battle day in and day out is what separates the average from the elite.

It's the discipline on those unmotivated days that keeps you on track.

Discipline, by definition, the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior, using punishment to correct disobedience.

For any fitness goal, the lack of discipline leads to the punishment of no results.

Developing discipline comes easy to some but harder for others.
