In our daily lives it is important to have some will power and discipline. Without it we would be like rudderless boat drifting and tossed in the waves.
Will power a.k.a. resolve – gets us from point A to B without all of the little distractions.
We all want to take a bite of that candy bar but resist as we know it doesn’t help us meet our goals of health and fitness.
At 18 I had no will power – unless it was making it to the next Friday late night party. What changed?
It takes 21 days to build a habit – good or bad. I changed my environment – my situation and got myself in a place where I could only make good choices and build good habits.
A few months later I was a young man with many good changes under my feet.
Read good books daily. Fill your mind with good thoughts. It is very hard for you to think negative thoughts while your reading something positive.
Change your environment. Get away from bad people. Get next to good people – preferable those more athletic and better than you at business or whatever task that you seek to improve.
Enjoy the struggle. No one wants to be exposed and shown to be less than they are. But sometimes that is the only way to grow and become more. Just like the butterfly – it has to go from caterpillar to cocoon and struggle – fight to get out of the cocoon. Only then will it become a beautiful strong butterfly that can withstand gail force winds. The struggle is a gift.
