Use Willpower the Right Way for Any Goal. Willpower doesn’t always have the best reputation. Many times, people use the term as shorthand for white-knuckling their way through a situation that often includes some type of deprivation.
Use Willpower the Right Way. Instead of focusing on the progress you’ve made by being “good,” focus on how committed you are to your goal, and remember the why behind it. Any time you catch the voice in your head berating yourself for being “bad,” remind yourself that you are only increasing the likelihood that you will repeat.
At the core of willpower is the ability to resist short-term temptations and desires in order to achieve long-term goals. It’s the prevailing source of long-term satisfaction over instant gratification. Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear. Most individuals believe they could enhance their lives only if they had that unique quality known as self-control or willpower.

Imagination is a powerful technique for improving willpower. The body often responds to imagined situations in the same way it responds to experienced ones. If you imagine lying on a peaceful.
Willpower is the ability to resist short-term gratification in pursuit of long-term goals or objectives. Willpower is correlated with positive life outcomes such as better grades, higher self-esteem, lower substance abuse rates, greater financial security and improved physical and mental health. Your will is simply a goal (lose weight, earn a promotion, stop drinking, meet the right woman) and your power is the force you put into accomplishing goals (a powerful bodybuilder uses force to lift, a powerful communicator uses force to influence, etc.) So willpower is the force you use to complete goals you’ve set.
