Willpower is an essential factor in achieving our long-term goals.
By trusting that we possess the necessary resources to overcome upcoming challenges, we enhance our likelihood of future accomplishments. We also release limiting habits and build self-esteem, which in turn moves us closer to our goals.
vidence shows that we are more likely to persist in a task if we are made aware that our determination is boundless, rather than limited. Although developing willpower can be challenging, psychology suggests that a significant aspect is trusting in one’s ability to achieve it.
Recent research and theory also suggest that there may not be a fixed amount of willpower. Instead, think of it as a muscle that can be strengthened through practice and positive reinforcement.
