In 2016, Discipline drives actions. Discipline is the suppression of base desires, and is usually understood to be synonymous with restraint and self-control. According to Wikipedia, self-discipline is to some extent a substitute for motivation. I disagree, often times you may have absolutely no motivation at all to do what needs to be done. It is Discipline that drives your actions to do what needs to be done to keep in alignment with your goals or objectives, even though, at that moment, you have no motivation to do so, and also may be the opposite of fun. This is in line with the mental toughness concepts we promote at CATS.

Having control of personal emotions and wants, that if left unchecked, often let us down, by allowing us to make choices not in alignment with our true desires.
Virtuous behavior can be described as when one's values are aligned with one's aims: to do what one knows is best and to do it gladly.

Make the right choices this year regardless of being motivated or not. Be mentally tough and stay the path whatever that may be.

Hopefully you continue to make CATS part of your life, and continue to strive forward toward your health and fitness goals!
