Thanks for sharing. Very timely as I start the first day of NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo. *Chants* Discipline, discipline, discipline.
Motivation is overrated.
With every goal I try to reach and every habit I try to internalize, I always start off motivated and eager to climb the ladder to success.
But where is my motivation three months later at 5:45am, looking up at a long day of work after a sleepless night?
Where is my motivation during a horrible week, wrought with upsets and disappointments?
I curl up in bed, knowing full well what I have to do, but my motivation is no where to be found.
Motivation is a feeling. It is sand in your palms, sensitive to even the slightest breeze.
So what force do we use to accomplish our goals if not motivation?
Courage is not the absence fear, but the ability to go on despite it.
Discipline is not the absence of avolition, but the pledge to push forward regardless of it’s presence.
