I don’t like working out like I did when I was younger. I have less energy, less strength and it takes longer to burn fat; or at least it seems it does. But the one thing I am better at now is discipline and discipline is definitely necessary when it comes to exercising.
Discipline is the art of training oneself to do something in a controlled and habitual way. I think of discipline as doing something even when you don’t want to do it. It isn’t easy to make yourself exercise when you body and mind are saying “don’t”.
I think discipline is something that can be developed through practice and I also believe discipline is what differentiates those who achieve great things from those who do not. I’m not the best at it, but I’m getting better at it.
