Motivational Quotes - Health and Wellness: 04/16/11

"It has always been my thought that the most important single ingredient to success in athletics or life is discipline. I have many times felt that this word is the most ill-defined in all our language. My definition of the word is as follows: 1. Do what has to be done; 2. When it has to be done; 3. As well as it can be done; and 4. Do it that way all the time."
-Bob Knight

What an amazing quote about discipline is this passage from Bobby Knight. Obviously, the context of this quote likely pertained, more specifically, to the sport of basketball. However, I feel that it translates absolutely perfectly into the realm of health and wellness. If one really hopes to change their life for the better, get healthier and build a better physique, these four principles of discipline must be adhered to. Take these principles and combine them with consistency and, in time, you will achieve your goals - Without a doubt.
