    How can I improve the strength of my will power?

    Help needed with self determination and worth. I need to 'suck it up'. How?

    Test it.  Constantly.

    Try not eating for a day
    Try not using the computer for a day
    Try to stay away from dessert for a day

    It's the little things that you do to practice.  Those make it easier to do the bigger things.  It's hard to improve your will-power but it can be done.

    My opinion is you start off achieving things you are good at. Find a hobby and start achieving tasks you write down for yourself. Start off with small tasks and then build up to bigger tasks. You will start being very proud of yourself and hearing others giving you attaboys helps as well. I have a miracle video in my 5 video series that goes into more detail about accomplishing anything you want. It's in my new project called The Tank Method. Till next time. vic

    Start with something small, and easy to give up, Then use that success as a springboard for something a little harder. Practice it, build up to it.

    I guess it depends on where you are trying to place your will power. If it's on something you have little value for, then it's better to find the value, or let it go.

    If it's something imposed from the outside, then your chances of conquering it are pretty low or nul.

    What I try to do is look deeply into my heart to see what is really important. Then I vision myself having conquered it. Now I've fueled my willpower with my heart's desire and holding on is much easier and effortless. If I do fall off the wagon, I can more quickly pick myself up again.

    When concerning growth as well as change there is one wrods that sums it up Discipline.  You must change what you have conditioned yourself to accept as acceptable and discipline yourself to do those things that are needed for you to go forward as well as progress productively.  There is no specific way/rules or regulations, if you truly want to improve you will through discipline!

    Sometimes it is best to limit or promote your will power by creating the environment that is needed to do one or the other. For a simple example to help with will power to quit smoking try not to buy or be around cigarettes at first when it is the toughest, then work into the tougher environments as you can. Sucking it up as you say would to me mean there is only one choice. By this I mean if you were stranded in a area far from where you needed to be you would either give up or continue the journey under any circumstances. Again with this topic the strength of will power and the ability to "suck it up" are different for different people. I was in the infantry so sucking it up for me means, walking for 24 miles on a broken foot and twisted ankle to finish a mission. For others they may forgo their morning coffee as "sucking it up."
