Why Increase Willpower?

thYou can answer this question for yourself: What would your life be like if you had all the willpower you’d ever need?

In other words, your willpower would be high enough that you are simply not tempted to make poor choices for yourself. Apply this imagined willpower to any problem area of your life and see what it would do!

What difference would it make for you?

Chances are that willpower would make a significant difference! If not, then you may not need more will power.

To create more will power than you had last week, you need to begin by understanding what will power is. Then, you’ll learn seven simple steps that you can begin to apply immediately.

Even better, you can sign up for our free email series that guides you through the process and helps you track your results day by day – with free feedback.

What is Willpower?

Your will is your capacity to make conscious choices.

Will power refers to your level of motivation to exercise your will. If you have tons of willpower, you have high motivation to make good choices for yourself. In other words, high willpower people have lots of self-discipline.

If you have minimal willpower, you may recognize your choices, but lack the motivation to make the right ones. People with weak willpower often take the path of least resistance and end up feeling powerless or out of control.

Since most meaningful achievements in life require high willpower, it is critical to develop it if you want to accomplish your goals.

If you have low willpower, there is good news! Willpower can be strengthened. And, with the right method, it is simple, fun and easy to do.

This is the purpose of our free, 5-Day Willpower Boot Camp.

You express your will on many levels. These levels can be made into a Pyramid of Will. The higher you go up the pyramid, the more complex your expression of will. The lower you go on the pyramid, the simpler your expression of Will becomes.

 

The goal for each of us is to get to the top of the pyramid! This 5-Day Willpower Boot Camp will focus on the Behaviors level because this is the best place to start.

7 Steps to Create More Willpower Than You Had Last Week

1. Focus on Concrete Behaviors.

For the purpose of increasing willpower, we want to focus on simple, practical behavioral choices.

Do so by formulating a statement of will:

Today, I will _______________________.

For example: exercise for 30 minutes, eat a large salad, balance my checkbook, read for 20 minutes, etc…

If you want to STOP a behavior, then use the following formula:

Today, instead of ____________________, I will _______________________.

For example, if you want to stop eating potato chips:

Today, instead of eating potato chips, I will eat a piece of fruit.

If you want to stop yelling at your kids:

Today, instead of yelling at my kids, I will simply explain the consequences of their actions.

If you want to stop watching so much TV:

Today, instead of turning on the TV when I get home, I will take a walk around the block.

Etc…you get the idea. Fill in the blanks!

2. Make it Easy – Too Easy!

We’re training your will, here. And the key to training ANYTHING is to start small. Don’t even entertain big ideas. In NLP, we call this chunking down. Chunking down is simply taking an idea and breaking it down into smaller, manageable chunks.

It’s important that your will statement be easy to accomplish. Remember, we are training your will. This is the primary goal. And we need to make it a total no-brainer.

So, double check that the behaviors you want are very easy to accomplish. Don’t state that you are going to exercise for two hours, for example, if you currently don’t exercise at all. It would better to state that you are going to exercise for ten minutes! The goal here is to make sure you can accomplish this first step. So, make your behavior super-doable.

Then, one little success will build upon the next until you’ve got some serious momentum. Start with little chunks!

3. Find Your Accountability.

It’s always best to be held accountable for doing the right thing. If you don’t hold yourself accountable very well, then you want someone to help out. Beyond accountability, having an additional person in the loop also encourages celebration of your small successes, which is critical to long-term achievement.

In the 5-day Willpower Boot Camp, accountability is built into the program. You receive everything you need to design your will statements. Then, you get an email every day for five days asking you to report how you did.

Go ahead and register now…

4. Track Your Progress.

will-point-iconIf you don’t track your progress, you will fail to notice your successes and areas for improvement. Track it daily!

In the 5-Day Will Power Boot Camp, we use a cool scoring system to motivate you to get as many “Will Points” as possible during the boot camp. As we track your success, you will find that your will power is indeed growing, little by little.

We also invite you to take a survey after the email series that will highlight your progress over the five days. After you complete the survey, your accumulated Will Points will be redeemable!

5. Identify Self-Sabotage.

When you don’t do what you intended to do, there may be a valid reason. Most often, however, not doing your willed behavior is an act of self-sabotage.

When you realize that you did NOT do the behavior you wanted to do, complete the following sentences:

I didn’t do ________________ today and that makes me feel _________________.

Self-sabotage is a twisted thing! When we sabotage ourselves, we are not only avoiding what would make us feel good. We are ALSO seeking something that makes us feel bad.

Identify how you felt after avoiding the positive behavior you wanted to do. Chances are, it’s an old and familiar feeling that you have not reconciled in your psyche.

6. Use a Bold Truth Affirmation.

Every time you succeed in doing what you intended to do, affirm it! Immediately after every success, take a deep breath, smile and say, “My willpower is increasing and this little success is the evidence.”

When you don’t succeed, it may be that you chunked to large. Try scaling it down to a smaller action. Once you accomplish that action, go to the next, etc. Until you get to the one you originally did not succeed at.

However, if you simply chose not to accomplish the intended task, use your Step 5 statement.

Form this truth affirmation from Step 5 as follows:

Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel _________________ instead (use the feeling you identified in step 5.

Examples:

• Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel like a loser instead.

• Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel humiliated instead.

• Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel worthless instead.

• Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel rebellious instead.

• Today I did NOT do my intended behavior because I chose to feel empty instead.

It may sound harsh. Yet, if it’s true, it’s true. Now, here’s the good news…

By making a truth statement, you are actually building your will power. The truth statement brings your feelings into conscious awareness and acknowledges they they are a choice.

You could have avoided feeling bad by doing your intended behavior. Since you did not act they way you intended to act, the next best thing is to acknowledge the choice.

Remember, building will power involves expanding conscious choice. Even when your choices are unhealthy, it is important to make them conscious! This is a significant step forward.

Often, such conscious acknowledgement helps you turn negative choices around quickly. Try it.

7. Keep Going!

This may be the most important step of all. Just keep plodding ahead. Don’t give up.

Giving up is like stating that you will never have willpower when in fact you CAN build it and enjoy higher willpower for the rest of your life. It’s more than worth the effort you are putting in now.

If you want to apply this system to build unstoppable willpower, then you have two options:

1.    Just start applying it and track your results on your own.
