Relying on motivation alone will slow down your progress
Motivation is great when you have it. You feel like you can do anything. You suddenly believe that you can do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. However, it’s not always like that.
Motivation comes and goes. Waiting for motivation before doing the action will ruin your plans and slow your progress.
I feel like I’m wasting my time when I feel unmotivated. Lazy, wasted and misdirected. If I’m always like that, I don’t know where my life would be.
What you need is Discipline and the power of Habit.
Motivation will fire the engine… at first. Discipline will keep you going when you think it’s out of gas.
Most of the time, When we are not in the mood of doing the action, we hate it because it is out of our will and that lead us to procrastinate.
But if you are Disciplined enough, whatever your mood is, doing the action is buttery smooth without any friction. By doing that repeatedly and consistently, it will become a Habit.
It gives us unusual powers of focus and productivity. Your progress will soar high by the time you know it, you are already an 8 of an inch to achieve your goals.
