What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life)

What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life) | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

In the past decade, there has been a lot of fascinating academic research conducted around habit formation and willpower. By examining things like how smokers quit, why student perform well, and how New Year's resolvers stay on track, researchers are starting to piece together the answers to how we can build lasting habits and improve our ability to resist temptation. One surprising result is this: to improve your overall well-being, start a new regular habit. Pretty much any positive habit will do.

John Michel's curator insight, March 19, 2013 7:21 PM

At the turn of the 21st century, a landmark meta-study was conducted that looked at the question "Does Self Control Resemble a Muscle?" After reviewing hundreds of studies over the past few decades, the authors concluded that the answer was "Yes, it does."

Social scientists all over the world started to examine willpower and self-regulation from this "muscle" metaphor. For instance, if willpower is like a muscle, and muscles can get stronger over time with training, could willpower similarly be trained and strengthened?

Strong enthusiasm and willpower is great to get started with our missions to serve the world. My concern is that if we keep pushing ourselves without enjoying the process we can may start to become lost in the field of 'wanting' and not doing.

We are all creative machines who desire passion and purpose in what we do. So I believe that willpower is much more effective when we create a underlining purpose which gives us the passion keep on track to achieve the goal with flow. Focus is very important. What helps me stay on track of my mission to help people find their creative flow is to ensure I have a healthy balance for work and play. For example, I normally get my best ideas when I relax and dedicate time for fun. Thank you for this inspiring post. http://creativeflowevolution.com
