Motivation Vs. Discipline

Motivation may get you started, but it won’t keep you going.

And that’s not a knock on all of us personally, it’s just how motivation is. It’s like a wave it has a peak where you see great progress and ride the wave and then it just crashes out of nowhere because motivation is an emotion, not a character trait.

On the other hand, discipline is something much more concrete. And discipline builds character. It separates the dreamers from the doers, the quitters from the achievers. We all can be the latter, but it’s going to require working on yourself, investing in yourself, and a relentless mindset.
