6 Steps to Take When Your Willpower Is Gone



6 Steps to Take When Your Willpower Is Gone

Having a healthy willpower allows you to become capable of accomplishing a lot of things in life. Setting a goal and having the motivation to achieve this goal would be a type of willpower.

For example, you want to lose fat and gain a little muscle. Having a high willpower gives you the mindset to encourage yourself to complete this goal no matter how long it takes.

However, a low willpower means you will not have the mindset to achieve your goals, and you will most likely fail unless something is done.

Let’s take a look at seven steps that will take your willpower from the ground back up into the air:

1. Stress decreases willpower

Stress will drain your mental energy along with your physical energy as well. Modern science is starting to piece together the clues that stress is causing medical conditions such as high blood pressure and depression. Your heart is not only healthy when you train and eat right. Understandably, you need to eliminate stress in order to have the willpower for goal accomplishment. Take a look at your work, family, and love life to see if something needs to change in order for your stress to reduce.

“We all have those things that even in the midst of stress and disarray, they energize us and give us renewed strength and purpose. These are our passions.” – Adam Braun

2. Bad habits lead to bad results

A bad habit could be something like eating high carb foods routinely, but the issue is you are on a diet. This could also be something like never waking up on time in the morning, which destroys your willpower to even want to work. A bad habit needs to be targeted and fixed if you wish to increase your willpower. Sometimes you may need help from a friend or family member to help keep you from going back down the path of bad habit making.


3. Balance your life out to sustain willpower

Your willpower cannot exist if you are overwhelmed with a hefty daily schedule. Trying to squeeze in work, family time, and training is difficult without having any willpower. You could try making your schedule work better around your work. For example, go to the gym before work so you have the rest of the day afterwards to have family time. Work obviously cannot be eliminated, but you can try to request hour changes to better fit your daily needs. This doesn’t hurt to ask if the opportunity to ask comes around.


4. Your goals need to be accomplishable

Long term goals are great to set, but sometimes they are a bit unrealistic unless it was set for 10 years from that date. Short term goals help you stay motivated because you are accomplishing tasks one after another until that possible long term goal has been reached. A goal of losing 40lbs. in one month to look slim and strong is pretty hard on your willpower because it is virtually impossible to achieve. This could lead to a possible crash in your willpower, which basically is the reason why most people fail with their goals.


5. Think highly of yourself

Sadly people who start something new in their life often talk bad or negatively about themselves, which leads to their motivation and willpower decreasing. This carries over to a new diet or fitness program. You feel the progress is just not there and often state you suck at this type of thing during conversations. Don’t do this to yourself! Look in the mirror and say out loud you can do it, and while in conversations state that you are doing your best to succeed. This will create a major boost in your willpower.


6. Your willpower derives from actions

Lastly, you have to take action in order to boost your willpower and complete your goals. Motivation and confidence begin to rise as a result of action, and you start to feel that everything is possible if you continue down this path of achievement. However, action only happens because you choose to make it so. Push yourself past your drops in willpower because most people are going to experience the same thing.

“Willpower is essential to the accomplishment of anything worthwhile.” – Brian Tracy


Your drop in willpower should not be considered permanent. Even top professional athletes wind up down this road at some point in their career. As mentioned, the actions you take make the difference of success or failure. Focus on short term goals and keep your expectations to a lower level. Sounds odd to set low expectations, but your willpower benefits from this because you can maintain low expectations and begin to go above and beyond them.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
