Every person has to show his own willpower on a daily basis. Moreover, this aspect of life affects everyone and everyone, not only those who struggle with excess weight, quit smoking or tries to quit other addictions.
So, scientists have long proven the fact that will power sooner or later ends.
Willpower: how it works, what to do with it
1. Do not try to change everything in your own life. Willpower is not needed for this. Many parameters and actions cannot be controlled at the same time. Violence leads to the rapid depletion of human resources and forces.
Scientists have proved that people who restrain their own internal motives necessarily acquired negative qualities in some other direction. For example, you can imagine a person quitting smoking, and at the same time, start overeating. If we start to restrain emotions, then at the same time, we spend much more money – this is a proven fact.
2. Every instance of self-control and will reduces our ability to resist other temptations. And, the level of self-control, almost always, goes down towards evening, why all important and difficult tasks are better solved in the morning and before lunch. In the evening, coping with these tasks will be much more difficult.
How to Train Willpower?
Like training physical muscles in the gym, training willpower begins with small loads. It is better if at the first stage of the tasks there is less willpower is needed. For example, we could follow the straightforwardness of the posture while walking, make 5 ups from the floor every day, wash hand before meals or do any other minor act that will pop up into the head. The essence of all these movements is the training of willpower.
After a couple of weeks, as a rule, a person is already beginning to notice a certain self-confidence, a certain ability for self-control, some inner strength and strength, because the resource of willpower has increased in volume, the reserves of endurance have become larger.
Now you can continue the session, gradually increasing the burden on the inner willpower, endurance.
How to achieve it without any effort?
On the other hand, the willpower of a person can turn out to be completely useless where motivation can work. It is the internal motivation that can push the smoker to an instant separation from the cigarette. It is the inner motivation that leads to the fact that the idler in one fine morning changes the image of his life, turning into an energetic and active person. It is the internal motivation that pushes athletes to victory and makes him a champion.
In view of this, motivation can be considered a key internal tool of a person, with the help of which, without exaggeration, you can achieve anything, anything.
