5 Habits of People With Remarkable Willpower

5 Habits of People With Remarkable Willpower | Mortgages | Scoop.it

Willpower is not something you either have or you don't.

 

Sure, some people may be more self-disciplined than you. Some people may be better at resisting temptation than you. But that's probably not because they were born with some certain special something inside them--instead, they've found ways to store up their willpower and use it when it really matters.

 

They have remarkable willpower not because they have more of it, but because they've learned how to best use what they have.

 

Here's how you can, too.

Willpower - its all about getting the hardest things out of the way when you are at your mental peak, keeping in mind your long term goals and taking breaks to refuel your sugar levels.  Doing all these things will help you have the stamina to tackle the hardest of tasks without resorting to "I'll start tomorrow" 

donhornsby's curator insight, May 20, 2014 8:30 AM

(From the article): Create reminders of long-term goals. You want to build a bigger company, but when you're mentally tired, it's easy to rationalize doing less than your best. You want to lose weight, but when you're mentally tired, it's easy to rationalize that you'll start tomorrow. You want to better engage with your employees, but when you're mentally tired, it's easy to rationalize that you really need to work on that proposal instead.

 

Mental fatigue makes you take the easy way out--even though the easy way takes you the wrong way.
