Discipline Stands

Motivation fades

It abandons you in adversity

In the toughest moments

Motivation is nowhere to be found

It makes you feel good

But only in the beginning

In the middle of the struggle

Motivation becomes a ghost

What remains is discipline

It stays with us in defeat and success

On the verge of giving up

Discipline clinches our teeth and pushes us through

Discipline embeds itself deep within us

Part of who we  become is through our discipline

Determination is birthed from discipline

It gives life to overcoming, to success, to looking past the failures

Discipline stands where motivation once stood

Motivation might start the journey

Discipline sees the journey through to the end
