Motivation Vs Discipline

Do you know the difference between discipline and motivation? Discipline is about what we do, while motivation is about why we do it. Motivation is a feeling of excitement or enthusiasm for something. Discipline is a system that helps us to maintain focus on our goals.

Discipline is about self-control. Motivation is about getting yourself to do something. Discipline comes from within and it can be developed through practice, while motivation comes from external factors, such as praise or rewards.

Discipline has nothing to do with wanting, but everything to do with following through. Discipline is a state of being whereas motivation is a state of mind. The difference between discipline and motivation is important to understand, because if you have the wrong one, you can end up in all kinds of trouble. One issue that often comes up with people is that they focus on their motivation but not the discipline needed to actually do it. This can lead to all sorts of problems because there's a constant state of wanting without any work

  6. Motivation can come from outside sources like loved ones or friends, but discipline has to come from within ourselves first and foremost.


Getting disciplined can be a difficult task. There are many ways to get disciplined but not all of them work for everybody.

Some people swear by their morning routine while others rely on the support of friends and family. Everyone is different, so you need to find that one thing that will work for you.

The most important thing is to find what works for you and what motivates you to get on track every day.
