In today’s episode we are talking about the myths of motivation and discipline.
Motivation, discipline, and habit are three things we all know we need, but struggle with, and often get confused with each other.
Discipline is the stage just before habit. It takes discipline to develop a habit. It’s when we are forcing ourselves to do something, we don’t want to do, it doesn’t feel natural. It requires a thought process.
Motivation is overhyped. Motivation is kind of your why. People expect motivation will work as a magical elixir that will jump start your future.
The reality is that motivation comes and goes. It fluctuates depending on the circumstance.
We both have good days and bad which we share with you today.
What worked before will not always work. You can’t rely on natural motivation or discipline, so you need to create your own.
If you google motivation vs discipline, you will see arguments that you need one over the other. You need to figure out what works for you.
Tune in today to hear how we motivate ourselves, our children and family. The steps we take as well as what keeps us all happy and motivated at the same time. Who we choose to surround ourselves with and the personal development work we do to help us achieve our end result? All this and more on today’s show.
