Discipline Over Motivation

Day 84

This might be the last thing I want to right now. I’ve seriously contemplated quitting this challenge dozens of times. I don’t feel like writing. I lack motivation. When you lack motivation, you’ve got to find your discipline. Doing something while you’re motivated is the easiest thing ever. But it’s an emotion. Do you just brush your teeth when you’re happy or feel motivated? God, I hope not. What about getting dressed in the morning? Of course, the more challenging the task, the less likely you’re disciplined about it. However, if you don’t start finding discipline around the hard stuff, you’ll never live a meaningful life. If all you have is motivation, you’ll never live out your dreams.

I hate ever second of this. Every word annoys me but I said I would do it and I’m doing it. Done.

Discipline > Motivation
