Why To Dump Will Power And Get Motivated The Easy Way


For over 20 years I have been fascinated by the possibilities that exist for creating rapid and lasting personal change. And I learned some great tools for personal change.

And like you I would get excited about having more, being more and doing more but the momentum would never last. I would find myself waking up in the morning with very little interest in seizing the day!

I felt so much pressure to achieve that it was a lot easier to do nothing and not fall short of my huge expectations. So I would try to be as relaxed as possible and avoid experiences that might shake me out of my comfort zone.

Unfortunately this outlook does not work very well because eventually problems build up and the weeds start to grow in the garden of your life. Your procrastination is like a fickle friend, keen to take it easy with you but nowhere in sight when the work needs to be done!

At times like this most people give will power a shot.

Does will power work?

Will power alone will never work over the long term. It is the hardest way possible to get yourself to do anything. Its like trying to open a tin can with your teeth when there is a can opener in your pocket.

Instead you need to tap into the limitless power of your mind. When you do you can break bad habits, create beneficial new ones and put yourself back on track easily, quickly and with very little effort.

You see making changes to enhance the quality of your life does not need to be slow or difficult. Unfortunately most people are still struggling because they continue to rely on ineffective approaches like will power.

Motivation Tip for Today:

Forget about will power. Instead write down one small action you have been putting off and answer the following questions and really put some thought into the answers:

1 What am I missing out on of importance by not doing this?

2 What will I gain most by doing this?

3 Why is it important to me to get this done?

4 How is not doing this inconsistent with who I really am?

Pretend You Have Already Completed the Task:

Get a pen and paper and take 5 minutes to describe how you feel now that you have already finished the task you have been postponing. i.e. pretend you have already completed the task.

e.g. I have already cleaned the yard and I feel fantastic. My family and friends are really impressed and I feel so proud of myself and so delighted that it is finally done.

The yard looks immaculate, so tidy I have even impressed myself. I feel so powerful, energetic and motivated. I feel on top of the world. etc. etc.

Do this quickly and write with as much emotion as you can express. Spend at least 5 minutes on it.

You will be surprised at how well this simple process works.

You may find that you feel a boost in motivation that gets even better each time you use this process. Do it once a day for best results.
