People who have weak willpower seldom succeed. They too easily give in to their temptations and distractions. They also give up too easily when they encounter challenges.
On the other hand, people who have strong willpower tend to become successful in life. After all, they are able to overcome difficulties and work towards their ultimate goals.
There are a few activities that we can engage in to increase our willpower. The first is to do breathing meditation. The enigma about breathing meditation is that it is the simplest, yet difficult activity to do.
To meditate, first find a comfortable place, sit down, close your eyes, and start breathing in and out normally. The objective is to then focus your attention on your breathing, and nothing else. Try for a couple of minutes. Then, as you are more comfortable with it, increase the length of the session.
The second activity we can do is to wake up early. I wake up at five every morning to go for a jog around my neighborhood. But I realize that the part that I trained the most is not my body, but my mind. Finding the motivation to exercise is one thing. Waking up before everyone else is another.
The third activity that I reccomend is to cultivate a habit of setting goals and working towards them.
The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful people are often intentional about their goals but unsuccessful people are usually not.
