Improve Willpower, Discipline and Procrastination the Easiest Fix of All.

I had a bit of an epiphany today, on the whole willpower thing.

Why the hell would you want great willpower? That is madness. I feel that willpower is just a load of rubbish.

will-power

I think we look at people with great willpower with awe and say wow I wish I was like that. However I think we are looking at the result of the situation, not the cause.

When I want to do something, it takes no effort, to do it, at all. I feel that these people with great willpower are actually just people who want to do what they are doing, more than not doing it.

Imagine yourself how hard is it to do something that you really do not want to do. I know for me in many work situations, I did not want to be there and it took great willpower to go in. So much so my desire always won out in the end and I stopped going in.

Now imagine how hard it is to not do something you really want to do. Its dam near impossible.

Over the past few years, I’ve spent all my time and effort getting rid of the negative stuff in my head, which caused me to not like work and aspects of life. Basically I’ve been getting rid of stuff in my mind and learning how to make my life easier.

That is basically what personal development is, you make yourself better so your life is easier. But to get better you have to get rid of ill or un effective thought patterns.

I know a lot of my friends may look at me and say wow, it took a lot of willpower to keep plugging away at that personal development stuff for so long, (about 10 years now) but to be honest it’s been fun, interesting and of course at times hard, but on a whole it has taken no willpower at all.

I keep working hard at making my life easier every day.

Imagine doing a job, you loved, and on your way to that job you woke up with energy and enthusiasm for the day. While you drove to work, all the traffic didn’t bother you, because you had time to think about what you wanted to do, that day. So then you where organized for the day and it was fun. You got to meet people who were interested in what you were doing and by the time you got home you where so excited, for the next day that you barely wanted to go to bed.

That little story is what I’m aiming for in life and to get that, all you have to do is work on your perceptions about the world, your life and your beliefs.

Willpower, discipline and procrastination have no business in that dream because they do not come into the equation, they simply do not exist because you want to do, what you want to do and you are allowing yourself to do it. How easy would that be?

But from someone who is looking in at that life, from their life, where they do not like what they are doing it will look like you have the greatest willpower in the world.

So I came up with a little thing that should stick in your head. W,i,l,power should stand for WHAT I LIKE power.

If you keep working towards what you enjoy, every day, you will have great will power.
