5 Habits of People With Remarkable Willpower
Willpower is not something you either have or you don't. Sure, some people may be more self-disciplined than you. Some people may be better at resisting temptation than you. But that's probably not because they were born with some certain special something inside them--instead, they've found ways to store up their willpower and use it when it really matters. They have remarkable willpower not because they have more of it, but because they've learned how to best use what they have. Here's how you can, too: 1. The more choices we make during the day, the harder each one is on our brain--and the more we start to look for shortcuts. In fact, we can't help ourselves: We've run out of the mental energy we need to make smart choices. That's why the fewer choices we have to make, the smarter choices we can make when we do need to make a decision. Say you want to drink more water and less soda. Or say you struggle to keep from constantly checking your email. Choices are the enemy of willpower. 2. 3.
