    Basically, it just takes determination and hard work. Set yourself small goals and once you reach them, you will gain more will power to reach your ultimate goal. Good luck!

    To gain will power I focus on what I want instead of what I don't want. I think of things I want to do. For example I want to maintain a healthy diet so I eat a lot of healthy food. Since I fill up on healthy food I don't have much room for junk food. I want to be lean and muscular so I exercise. The focus is on being active and building muscle while doing things I enjoy like biking to the beach, going for walks in the woods and playing Wii sports games. I don't focus on fat or my weight,

    Another way I gain will power is to do body weight exercises like planks and push-ups. It provides me with mental and physical exercise because you need to will yourself to continue to do the exercise.

    Sometimes it is not lack of will power that you're facing, but an emotional problem that you haven't found a way to solve. One solution, that seems to have success, is using and repeating positive affirmations to strengthen and improve your mental psyche. If you're interested here is a link to a site that has some affirmations for you to follow: http://www.prolificliving.com/blog/2012 … irmations/

    I don't know if this helps you with your question, but  I thought it would be good to mention it.

    I gain will power by motivation and daydreaming about how wonderful my life would be if I put my will power into place. To motivate myself I could watch a few motivational videos on youtube or go check out some motivational books from the library. Good luck!
