Motivation will only get us so far; things will get done when we feel charged to do them.
However, with discipline... a structured, consistent and persistent approach... things will get done to schedule, giving you a consistent sense of purpose and achievement, without the guilt, pressure, and excuses.
Today I lost my excuse of needing motivation, and owned my need for discipline.
MOTIVATION WILL ONLY GET YOU SO FAR. GET DISCIPLINED.

Sometimes we are our own worse enemy - we undermine ourselves, we sabotage our success, we ignore our desires, and repress our needs. We act as our own nemesis, actively seeking to find the imperfections within ourselves, and constantly placing ourselves in positions, relationships and circumstances that do not nourish our growth.
We do a better job than our rivals, at blocking our happiness.
So just for today, promise yourself to get out of your own way....
If I read a copy of your resumé, took the time to read through your Linkedin profile, or sat in on one of your interviews, would it be a true reflection of who you are, right now?

We all have a 'passport', be it education, a particular craft, an ability to network, or create... we just need to ensure we keep it up-to-date, use it as much as we can, and understand its importance in opening the door to new experiences, opportunities, and literally enabli
There seems to be an obsession with making moves, especially the 'right' moves, with a fear of being left behind, or not 'appearing' to be winning.
Many compare their real life with the glossy social media 'showreels' of others, resulting in rushed commitments, or spending too much time overthinking each turn, wanting to ensure it is the 'right turn' - with quick returns, no risks, large payoffs, and zero investment. This is a fallacy! The ability to take risks, accept losse
Many fail and block their own blessings by worrying abouth the success, journey, and ideas of others.
Instead of investing their time within cultivating and appreciating their own greatness. they sit still feeling threatened, or rush into new things in order to compete, out of fear of being left behind or out done.
Some even stand in the way of others, or intentionally withhold information, with misguided belief that it somehow slows others down. Yet the only person they ha
