Do You Want Willpower?

Written by 

One thing which is repeatedly heard by dieters is, "I don't have any willpower." Do you know that just saying you don't have willpower over and over, you are actually affirming that very thing? Let that be one simple lesson in changing the premise that you don't have any. Instead start saying, "I'm in the process of developing willpower." Doesn't that feel better?

Catch your thoughts. How many times are you actually weakening your will power by simply saying you don't have any? Gandi says it the best, "Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny." This embraces the whole idea of the intense power of your thinking and how you can really change your behavior by first changing your thoughts.

Another aspect to this notion is the fact that you really do have will power whether you realize it or not! Do you get up and go to work every day? Do you bathe and shower daily? These things and others like it require your willpower. Don't underestimate what you do that is right!

Lastly then, how do you develop willpower? Researchers say the most impactful way to develop willpower has to do with several components:

  • Establish and then maintain a strong motivation for change.
  • Set a realistic and clear goal.
  • Monitor your behavior toward that goal. By monitoring your progress you can see what your personal obstacles are and then what actions you need to take to be successful toward achieving your goal.

So what things do you need to do?
