Discipline vs Motivation

There’s a famous quote by Stephen Covey, and it reads: “Only the disciplined are truly free. The undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites, and passions.” — Stephen Covey In a nutshell, The undisciplined will look for every excuse as to why they can’t stick to their goals. When you are disciplined, It doesn’t matter if you want to do the task at hand or not. When you are disciplined no matter the obstacles, You make it happen. You see, Weight loss won’t happen unless we create discipline. When you are loosing weight, it’s like a constant battle between delayed gratification, and instant gratification. An instant gratification is something that you must have right then and there. Delayed gratification is how you create discipline. For example, You may want that slice of cake only because you see it. In reality, Your subconscious mind is telling you go for that temptation. When we go for that temptation, Especially when we are just starting, It can lead to a set back. It can lead to self destruction, and that’s not what I want for you. Delayed gratification means to resist; Fight temptation. So next time you think you may want something off your diet, here’s a check list:

  1. How has my diet been all week

  2. Did I loose at least 5lbs last week

  3. When was the last time I’ve treated myself.

If all of those points are a yes, I say go for that gratification. Just remember to have the DISCIPLINE to get back on track right after! Thank you so much for clicking on today’s blog. I hope this message was clear and meaningful. I promise to keep bring more content like this. Stay safe, and I’ll holla later
