“Discipline is really the key to accomplishments”

"Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most." - Abraham Lincoln

There are days when I wake up feeling tired, unmotivated, and just not in the mood to train. The voice in my head tries to convince me to skip my workout, telling me it’s okay to take a break. But over the years, I’ve learned the value of pushing through those moments of resistance and training no matter what I feel like.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of waiting for the perfect moment to feel motivated, energized, or inspired. We convince ourselves that once we feel good or comfortable, then we’ll take action. But the truth is, if we always wait for the perfect conditions, we’ll end up procrastinating and never making progress towards our goals.

Discipline is the key. It’s the ability to prioritize what’s important to us and take action regardless of how we feel. It’s about showing up for ourselves consistently, even on the days when we don’t feel like it. It’s understanding that training is not just about physical fitness, but also about mental strength and resilience.

When we push ourselves to train even when we don’t feel like it or stick to our healthy meal plan, we build discipline and mental fortitude. We learn to overcome obstacles and push through limitations. We cultivate a mindset of resilience and determination that carries over into other areas of our lives.

Don’t wait for the perfect moment or the right mood. Instead, prioritize your goals and commit to taking consistent action. It’s through discipline that we achieve our greatest transformations, both physically and mentally.

Remember, the discomfort and resistance you may feel in the moment are temporary, but the rewards of discipline and consistency will last well beyond the moment.
