You Can Be Tricked

The power of will is in resisting temptations and impulses that might not create the best results. Your willpower believes what you tell it. This can be powerful if used correctly. However, if you consistently give in to negative temptations, your subconscious prioritizes those actions. Your willpower becomes convinced that this is what you should truly be doing. 

You can combat this by consistently and consciously making smart choices. Continually making positive choices that are in your best interest tells your willpower to resist negative temptations and do what is best for you

Affirmation: “I am in control of my choices.”

Affirmation: “I am radiating confidence.”

Strength of Will Is like Garlic to Vampires

Vampires hate garlic. We are referring to emotional vampires, people who suck the life force from you. We just talked about the relationship between confidence and will. When you display an ability to resist bad choices and choose instead to work towards a healthier experience, you drive a wooden stake directly into the hearts of any emotional vampires in your life. Your improved self-image and confidence make you immune to people who intentionally or unintentionally bring you down.

 

Affirmation: “I protect my energy.”

 

Brief Exercise: Visualize a protective shield around you, like a cloak of resilience. Imagine it repelling negativity and draining energy vampires aw

 

Improve Your Vision

Having a good sense of will is all about clarity of vision. Your eyesight won’t improve when you practice resolution , but the vision of your future will. Focused determination on a clearly defined goal is what willpower is. You begin to see the world around you and your actions very clearly. Your vision reveals fewer temptations and more paths to achieving your goal.

 

Affirmation: “I see my path clearly.”

 

Brief Exercise: Close your eyes briefly, then open them with intention. Look around and notice the details—the colors, shapes, and possibilities. Imagine your future goals with clarity.

The Power of Your Will Decides If You Are Lucky or Not

Most people who focus on the negative aren’t usually lucky. Misfortune befalls them frequently. Positive thinkers move through life, enjoying success that sometimes is effortless. Why is this? In many cases, it’s because the person with a cup-half-full attitude has worked to build up his willpower.

 

A strong will is like experience. You don’t develop it by avoiding difficult situations. It can only improve by making tough decisions. When you consciously resist temptation, you strengthen your willpower for future decisions. This triggers a release of dopamine, which makes you feel good. Your subconscious picks up your positive thoughts, which silently influences most of your actions and behaviors.

 

So, the person who consistently and consciously improves his determination unconsciously moves towards positive experiences. They may seem lucky when, in actuality, they are benefiting from a natural scientific process.

Affirmation: “I create my luck.”

 

Brief Exercise: Write down three positive decisions you’ve made recently. Acknowledge how they contribute to your overall well-being. Embrace the feeling of empowerment.

Conclusion
