26 Jun, 2020055 The Willpower Effect – Guided meditation
I am delighted to share a powerful meditation and visualisation to help you relax and boost your willpower.
Do not listen to this whilst operating machinery or driving. Only listen when you can relax and not be disturbed from the outside world.
I have always been fascinated with the subject of willpower. It is such a vital part of a person’s armoury when changing ingrained patterns of behaviour such as adopting a healthy lifestyle or meeting a goal in life.
If you look it up in a dictionary, the definition of willpower is ‘the unwavering strength of will to carry out one’s wishes.’ Over time I’ve discovered a different, and more helpful, definition is:
Take a moment to read that a couple of times and really think about what that definition means for you and your life. Willpower, or self-control, is the ability to control one’s desires and impulses. The things you need to do. Imagine for a second what your life would be like if you had the ability to control your desires and impulses and, instead, did the things that would take in the right direction all the time.
For most people who have goals, dreams and aspirations, the missing link in the puzzle is a lack of willpower. In fact, self-control came in top when people were asked about what was their biggest failure. Is
this a surprise? There are so many distractions ready to divert us from doing what we know we should and that pander to our desires. Social media, the internet, the phone, TV, radio, computer games, and the easy accessibility of food and drink.
And yet, what quality do you suppose is most undervalued in western societies? The answer was revealed in a survey of over a million people. Self–control was ranked last in a list of virtues that people attributed to themselves. This came after honesty, kindness, humour, creativity, bravery and modesty.
This meditation is designed to help you in many ways so enjoy and listen as often as possible to get the maximum benefits.
