I actually have a very strong case of “will” power. I. Will. Have. My. Way.
When we fail at goals or fall short of what we intended, we always search for the reason. Many times lack of willpower becomes our scapegoat. The reason we didn’t lose weight, the reason we didn’t workout, the reason we never quit smoking, yada, yada, yada.
I have come to realize that those of us who say we have no willpower actually have incredibly strong wills. If only we would quit allowing said will to carry us over to the dark side. We need to harness that stubbornness for good. We need to learn to stubbornly refuse to fail.
The Webster’s definition of “willpower” is this “the ability to control yourself”. Each of us has that capability within. We each need to learn how to control the things we can change, the things that would be beneficial were we to actually do them…and then we need to do them.
So the next time you want to use the excuse of “no willpower”, stop and think. Your will is very strong, you have control, you can do this.
