I only find myself taking a disciplined approach to things when I have a strong motivation and passion for it. I'm not sure you can even commit to being disciplined without motivation. Even at gunpoint your motivation is not being shot.

There are a number of things that lead to one achieving their goals. One thing that helps one person may not work for someone else. I'm sure there are people out there that enjoy the motivation they receive from their loved ones.

I think motivation usually leads to discipline to be honest.

Motivation is the fuel for discipline. If you're disciplined without any motivation, that would just make you a sheep or a robot. What's the point of disciplining yourself without any motivation? You need a trigger to stay on track.

You need the motivation to want to achieve something, but you need the discipline to stick with it and see it through. Sure I want to be a Teacher, but I need the discipline to study and work hard at my goals to actually achieve it. I accept nothing less than my best effort, and I feel that this decision will reflect well on me when I enter the workforce and start submitting resumes to school districts. Its also just a good policy in general to be disciplined. You might not find your job all that motivating, but you have the personal discipline to see it through and get that sweetass paycheque. So yes, I wholeheartedly agree.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but were you prompted to make this thread by that one tweet that was getting retweeted a lot? The one about how aspiring professionals in creative careers (ie. drawing, writing, animation, filmmaking) can't rely on motivation as a way to achieve their goals, and instead need the discipline to set goals and work at them every day?

Sorry but I don't have twitter, instagram or snapchat, FUCK SOCIAL MEDIA and I think that what keeps my going is the routine not any type of motivation since I do things for myself

I agree with you that to achieve your goals is being discipline (or consistent). However, it is only 1/3 of the equation. To be discipline requires motivation (or inspiration). To be motivated (or inspired) requires desperation (or hunger). All of these three components combine help you achieve your goals. You cannot have one without the others. It is not possible, whether you believe you don't need motivation, you do. You just don't realized that you have been motivated and desperate in the pursue of your achievements. Upon reflection you will.
