People want to tell you that willpower alone isn’t strong enough to carry you through.
These people want to push you towards motivation, systems, and products.
The problem with these things is that they’re unreliable.
Your will and commitment to discipline, on the other hand, is infinitely reliable and gets stronger with time.
You can train it like a muscle.
When you want to improve your squat, you do progressively heavier squats.
Your will is the exact same. It will get stronger and more reliable the more you force it to act.
You do this by committing to actions that push you beyond your comfort zone.
Things like getting up early, working out, and sticking with things when you want to quit.
Instead of waiting for motivation to strike just get up and do it.
Force yourself to conquer the obstacles in your way.
Don’t over think it, just do it.
