Struggle with willpower?
Its a funny old thing willpower…
it’s talked about as some kinda of X-men style super power
something that only mutants possess
people often think that you have it or you don’t
^^ don’t tell me you’ve never thought that, BTW
Anyway, it’s actually something I’ve always struggled with
really f*cking fickle
it comes and goes like the summer here in the North of England
and when it ‘goes’ enough times…
you’ll get to that dark little place known as “the f**k it button”
and resign yourself to another year of going round in circles and trying to find that perfect plan
doesn’t matter if it’s with your diet, your business or any habits you want to break or bring in
when you’re left with you vs willpower… willpower always loses
but I have a secret weapon..
and it’s NOT what you think it is
there’s no special ‘hack’ for this
CREATE A GOOD ENOUGH REASON TO HIT YOUR GOALS
See, if you don’t have enough leverage and your goals are ‘wishy washy’
you’re ONLY left with willpower
and THAT my friend is just one of the reasons why goal setting and a coach works so well
pushing to be better, overcoming obstacles and hitting goals…
VERY, VERY POWERFUL
If you only have to answer to yourself and you are not clear on why you are doing this for then goals will always fall by the wayside
no real targets to hit
nobody to tell that you didn’t do what you said you would
that’s the game changer
‘‘For me, the self reflection was the best part.
It’s one thing having a coaches feedback but rationalising and reflecting on my own choices brought a whole new aspect to it’‘
Are you ready to change?
