[My Eclat Coach] How can you increase your WillPower?


Willpower for me is the ability to do the right thing, at the right time, time and time again.

It could be in the face of adversity, loss, sheer negative emotions, or in the high of a backwind.

How can you increase this power?

Think of it as a muscle.

You can build you muscle essentially by increasing the weight you exercise with or the repetitions (number of times you do the same exercise)

Now, how does that apply to willpower?

1. increase the 'ASK' you have of yourself. let this be in small increments, but nevertheless let there be an increase.
so if you wanted to write, have an incremental goal of number of words every week.
if you want to wake up in the morning, set your alarm a little early every week.

2. increase the repetition. make your willpower a natural instinct. so if you think you cant walk a kilometer, just start walking one everyday, until your body walks a kilometer like it was second nature.
do what you hate, you fear, stuff that gives you anguish. just keep doing it, till it gives way. hammer away.

start with this. see where it goes.

I have one small request.

keep promises to yourself. however small, fulfill them or let yourself free if you cant accomplish them.
either way let your mind know you are boss.

Happy Willing!
