What’s it about?:Will Power
Will Power doesn’t work!
Or at best it’s in limited supply.
So many people fail to keep up the exercise regime.
You give in to the chocolate cake when you see it.
The extra glass of wine is so hard to resist.
When you try to exercise your will power, it taxes your brain.
It drains energy.
And even if you can keep it up for a short time, you give in.
You’re caught off guard.
Tired after a busy day.
Stressed by the job interview.
Exhausted after another poor night’s sleep.
In these weaker moments, your limbic, primitive brain craves instant gratification.
The dopamine rush from a Facebook like.
The shopping item you don’t need.
In these moments, your will power doesn’t stand a chance.
So, as humans have a limited amount of will power, what can you do to make positive behavioural changes that doesn’t rely on will power?
Change your environment.
If you want to give up the wine/chocolate/caffeine in the evenings – don’t have them in your house!
Simply remove the temptation before your primitive brain takes over and puts you in an impossible position.
Want to get fitter? Start spending more time with fitness experts who live a healthy lifestyle.
Want to create more ideas? Spend more time with creative people or in an environment that inspires you.
Want to feel less negative and anxious? Stop watching the news and violent tv and feeding off the fear that they spread.
More and more psychological evidence is emerging that clearly demonstrates the huge impact your environment has on the way you think, feel and behave.
So rather than looking at what you need to change and then relying on your limited will power, why not think about making sure you are surrounded by the right things, people and environment.
Because you and I know…
“If you want to fly with the eagles then don’t hang out with the ducks.”
I’m off to make sure my environment is helping me to create the habits I want in my life.
How about you?
To your fulfilment.
