Ambitions, dreams, goals, career accomplishments, family interactions, healthy diet, mental well-being, and many other things in our life rely heavily on our willpower.
Willpower, or as Friedrich Nietzsche once called it the ‘will to power’, is believed by many to be the one of the main driving forces of mankind in all their endeavors.
Our lives are riddled with small or big unforeseen problems and obstacles.
Not every single one of us can emerge victorious in the face of all these dilemmas. How do we fortify our willpower?
Almost everything in life requires a manifestation of will and the power to go through with it with a clear mind and unwavering determination.
In this blog post, I am going to teach you ways with which you can release pressure from certain areas of your thought and gain your willpower again.
First Approach: Set achievable and small goals!
Now this may come as surprise to many. Instead of telling you to dream big and set your goals and standards high, I am telling you to set the bar low.
But hear me out!
You are eventually going to achieve your life’s dream, but in order to do that, you must convince yourself to take small or even insignificant steps.
First, create a big picture of your goal, then break it up into smaller parts.
Write down a practical plan that can be as small as a daily to-do-list.
Determine the specifics of your plan.
Remember that this plan has to include achievable goals in your path to the big picture, otherwise it will be pointless.
Second Approach: Self-Control
The ability to control thoughts, emotions, actions, and other behavior when we are faced with impulses and temptation is an important step towards achieving our lifetime goals.
Self-control and willpower go hand in hand on many occasions. In fact, the drive to not stray from the path comes from the willpower to delay or stop gratification or immediate indulgence.
The capacity and strength to resist or override a destructive or negative feeling or thought is something that a lot of us fail to do and that is why our lives fall into misery.
When you hit an obstacle, it is only normal to feel that you are falling apart, and a lot of people tend to act without thinking when they feel scared or stressed. This is why self-control is fundamental.
Stay calm, find the problem, then remove or solve it and always keep your eyes on the ultimate goal.
Third Approach: Small Achievements as a Boost of Self-Confidence
When you set achievable goals and actually complete them, you get a boot of self-confidence, because these small activities are an achievement unto themselves.
Use these short bursts of confidence and power to push yourself on the way or even push past your own expectation to go beyond.
These small victories help turn your steps into leaps as much as you keep building them up. This process works like training a muscle in your body.
Your mind is the same.
You can train it on a daily basis to use these boosts of confidence and willpower to achieve whatever you want.
A BIG HUG!!!
