How to build willpower.

Willpower is a vital ingredient in the recipe of success. No matter what your goals are, you are going to need guts to make your dreams a reality. Willpower is just a daily commitment toward your goals: it means that you are in it for the long haul and it means that you can say no to instant gratification in order to protect your long term visions. So we all know dedication and willpower are important, but how do you develop them? Why do some people unwaveringly decline fun, food, and friends for their priorities while others struggle to turn down seconds on desert?

Consider that every person who has ever achieved happiness or success has had to start with the end in mind to achieve what they were after. While it’s true that the happiness is achieved more from the journey than from actually reaching the destination; its the idea of being on a set course: the idea of living a life with purpose that is truly fulfilling to us on a deeper level. There is one simple idea that can cause you to achieve far more success than you ever thought was possible… to begin with the end in mind.   In 7 Habits of highly effective people, we learn this important principle to direct the course of our lives. To begin with the end in mind means this: imagine yourself in 10 years, really try to see yourself and try to envision as many details as possible…and then make today bring you closer to that day. What do you look like? How do you act? What are you doing? What great things have you achieved in life? REALLY ask yourself what your perfect life looks like. When you...
