It’s A Decision, Not Willpower
Fuel for Thought, by Michael Todd Hudson
Creating or making improvements may not have the slightest thing to do with “willpower.”
It is far easier and better, to implement daily habits instead of relying on willpower or discipline.
Let’s say you rise at 6:00 am most mornings. It is not willpower rather a simple decision, which has you rising at 5:50 to do 3-4 reps of a full, slow squat and deep breathing as opposed to punching the snooze button.
It is not willpower rather a simple decision, to not overeat for several weeks, in order to achieve a fat loss goal.
It is not willpower rather a simple decision, to engage in progressive resistance training, in order to contribute to a fat loss goal. (Or any goal for that matter).
Ask yourself, what is more important?
A long term result or temporary indulgence?
If it is the result, then you just made an easy decision and so called willpower was not involved.
Don’t burden yourself unnecessarily with the concept of “willpower.”
Rather make small decisions each day so, that they become an easy habit.
