s3/e11 Understanding Discipline & Motivation with Coach Elisabeth
What IS discipline and how do we cultivate it? Do you struggle to stay "motivated" and be consistent? Do you believe that discipline is about sacrifice, denial, and rigidly inflexible scheduling? Coach Elisabeth explores the concepts of discipline, motivation, and willpower in this solo episode! Discipline & willpower are often associated with self-denial, with struggle, with sacrifice, but that's the wrong way to approach behavior change. Self-discipline is the ability to manage your thoughts, emotions, or behavior in the face of temptation in order to achieve a specific goal, and what your GOAL is and WHY you’re doing it feed into your ability to be consistent in working towards that goal. Learn about extrinsic vs intrinsic motivation, process vs outcome goals, and how our available resources impact our ability to be consistent in the long term! -- Elisabeth Scott is the founder and head coach of Running Explained.
