Each of us has been in the following situation – you have a great desire to do something, promise to start tomorrow / Monday / next month.
At best, take 1-2 attempts and leave the occupation, which is why yesterday you were shining eyes. At worst – you did not decide to make the first move.
Why does it happen? What do you lack? Motivation ? Willpower ? Time?
Let me reveal why:
Let’s start with the importance of self-discipline!
This is the ability to make (themselves) to take action, regardless of your current emotional state.
In other words, what are the concrete steps that you make after putting some purpose of attaining it. You’ve decided it’s time to lose weight – do you diet and you start playing sports. Words that seem very simple.
In real life, however, the interval between decision and action is saturated with torture doubt, avoidance, procrastination, forgetfulness and eventually failure. This can not go on forever and ever not to get closer to the goal.
You must not confuse tenacity and motivation.
Motivation depends on what you sometimes do with the fire in his eyes and sometimes can not get to get up from the couch. Stubbornness means action without a sighting , whether you like it or do not want to continue.
At the same time, we should distinguish persistence of stubbornness.
One is if you find it within themselves to a daily workout. And quite another if you believe in that after months of training you will be in the form of a professional athlete. Stubbornness is correct to target search of new roads, even refusing them, if not received. Without persistence, but only treading in one place long you risk hitting your head against the wall that will not break even with a sledgehammer.
