Willpower comes from your self-awareness

Do you have the willpower to do anything?

What is willpower?

You want to achieve, to be overcome your obstacles and to become successful too.

Are you the one with too much will or not much to go on with at all?

The big talk of losing weight as your New Year's resolution goes on year after year but nothing achieved.

It is all or nothing in your willpower.

What you need is balance to be able to have the willpower.

It's easy to give up and fall right back into the same routine or habits you have.

You need self-control to have that willpower!

Each day begins with a new schedule.

The day feels at a loss when you lose energy to keep up with the choices you made.

Change patterns to be on the right track. This allows for long-term thinking.

Negative thoughts sabotage your mind randomly.

These thoughts just pop up and make you feel weak and negative at some point in your life. Toxic thoughts make you feel less will-powered. Your character and your mind tells you about yourself.

Control your mind and focus on succeeding in your practice. Your work can look good on paper, but you need to be balanced out with observation.

It doesn't mean if it looks good on paper then everything works out. You can expect to fail if you don't value stability and certainty. To have willpower you need quality sleep to function smoothly.

Your brain power will burn out if you don't have enough sleep. Think about it carefully. Without a good nights sleep there is no way your thinking power will be energetic. You want to feel energetic mentally to feel good about your ideas.

The brain triggers your efforts.

The effect allows you to see for yourself of your failures and of your experiences.

Above all, if you think you are not going to achieve your goals there is nothing you can do to change that.

It just won't happen without your brain power to enable you to have that willpower.

A plan is worth having in mind but you need to prioritize your skills.

Be efficient and work fast at what want to achieve with your strong willpower.

Willpower is a weakness in you and a strength in you.

Willpower is you!

It is what makes you your true self. Some people lack willpower while others are full of willpower.

What do I think of Willpower?

It's a fascinating part of my life. I experienced challenges through using my willpower.

I mastered my willpower to achieve goals with practice and advantages. I applied my knowledge and figured out I had more to offer than I had expected.

I learned willpower is about my present self. So, I had a hard day and didn't have the time to exercise. That didn't mean I had to just sit back and forget about it.

I had to make this practice part of my lifestyle. I found the willpower in me and did what I thought I had no time for that day. That change of mind from one activity to another made me feel at my best.

The easy way out is to get out of it, isn't it?

I had to better manage my present self to have that willpower, that is to do for myself.

Giving up is not an option, at least not for me!

Do something you enjoy and love that will make you want to do more than that. The willpower is to make things right for you.

Are you willing to do the activity?

Are you using meditation to connect with your present self?

Peace and quiet allows for the brain power to increase the ability of willpower. If you won't power as I have learned, it is when I had resisted a chocolate cake.

I avoided sweet treats for along time as I had the willpower to do that. To have the will power as I had when I forced myself to do what I put on hold for few years. I had to speak a foreign language,

I finally saw through my challenges with my willpower. To have the full understanding of my willpower I had to perform it. The whole concept is for me to better my communications with the local people. To allow for better relationships in our small community.

I knew if I had delayed actions I would lack the willpower to move on in Croatia. You will find excuses to get out of your responsibilities. Sometimes change is not for you because old habits keep on repeating itself.

People struggle with their behaviors and can't stop their bad habits. A bad habit is spoken of more than the good habit. It is up to you to change your negatives and make the positives with your willpower.

Rediscover you and find out what you are really capable of in simple daily tasks. Firstly, eat properly to see the changes in your willpower. It is the key to living healthy.

No need to dive into your changes a change happens slowly and with each day as practiced. Small habits form a routine and this shows your willpower.

Every positive move you make it improves discipline and self-control. High stress levels is a risk for decreased willpower. Always refresh from one task to another. Focus on breaks to gain a relaxed mind.

Exercise your positive temptations to have willpower. A weak relationship with yourself allows for a lack of willpower. A poor understanding with yourself lacks self-control, and your challenges can feel most difficult.

If you want to learn a foreign language do it right away!

Everything you do is in your mind and you have to be in control.

You need to connect with yourself in order to have willpower.

Relationships don't have to blamed for your wrong doing.

The people you surround yourself with are not the ones to be blamed for your lack of willpower.

You have a mind of your own and need to focus on what you want from your goals.

Every person you meet won't want what you want from life.

It doesn't mean you should stop being friends with certain individuals of what bad you think of them. You are the light in your path.

If you want to achieve your goals only you can do that for yourself.

Willpower comes from you not others.

What would you suggest for the increase of willpower?

Have control over your actions.

When you have self-control and self-discipline you have the willpower.

You can have willpower but you got to be confident to keep that willpower alive in yourself.

You can accomplish anything with a strong willpower.

Build your willpower with simple tips as the following:

Be motivated, and responsible for your actions.

I feel in complete control of my life and self, and know with discipline I can have easy self-control.

Have the willpower to say NO

Willpower is about self-control

Do you lack willpower?

See results

Believe in yourself

The most important thing in life is to stop saying 'I wish' and start saying 'I will.'

CHARLES DICKENS, David Copperfield

      I use positive self-labels to make the changes that I need to. I’m pretty strong in will power and can successfully make any needed changes if I decide that’s what I want.
