During our motivational blog posts from previous week, we highlighted the importance of willpower and how it shapes your life.
In this last part, we are going to introduce three new methods that can effectively increase your self-confidence and give you a boost of willpower.
Evidently, willpower is the cornerstone of all our efforts.
Eventually, this inner power determines our fate in this world…
Seventh Approach: Get Up Earlier Than Your Norm
As William Chatham once eloquently said:
‘I would have it inscribed on the curtains of your bed and the walls of your chamber: If you do not rise early you can make progress in nothing.’
Depending on how long it takes for you to get up when you wake up, we suggest you wake up an hour or half hour earlier to get ready for your day.
Use this time to relax or spend it on whatever you think gives you more energy.
For some people, it’s meditating, exercising or if you’re a workaholic, an early start to your work.
Eighth Approach: Make a To-do List of Your Goals
‘Most impossible goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them and going full speed ahead as if they were routine.’
– Don Lancaster
So, you’re probably familiar with to-do lists. I have encouraged you many times to embrace the idea of writing things down.
But if you want to increase your willpower, you need to do it with your goals as well.
As we said, achieving small goals and victories on a daily basis are a crucial part of strengthening your willpower.
Make a to-do list of your goals and write down the progress you make with each one during the day.
This way, you can keep track of your strength and weaknesses to make yourself more competent.
Ninth Approach: Learn to Say No to People or Yourself!
Learning to say no to desires and temptation from inside and outside that derail you from the path to achieve your goal is one the most important steps in building your willpower.
When you feel yourself slipping on the slippery slope of finding some way to avoid fulfilling your task, you need to develop the strength to say no, to stay focused and go forward.
In order to achieve this strength, practice the idea of saying no to yourself and other people.
Say it out loud every now and then just to make sure you know how to say it!
It may seem stupid or pointless, but when you hear it, the word affects you.
It might make you think about it and your goal and the price of it all at the end of the day.
Think about the feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction you get when you achieve this milestone and learn how to say No, both to yourself and other people.
A BIG HUG!!!
