If you would like to change Your life , there is one thing that can help you more than anything.
It has been proven by research that 2 most important personal qualities that determine how successful you will be.
This means that if two factors are highly impacting whether you will have good life, where you succeed or need improvement.
1.) First factor – Intelligence Quotient:
First success determinant is your IQ ( intelligence quotient), which you cannot increase too much.
You might have come across games for IQ improvement, But there is no scientific evidence to prove they work.
IQ is very much predefined already and despite possibility of changes, there is only little you can do.
Good news is that most of successful people don’t have extraordinary intelligence.
They often don’t have elite education too.
What is this secret recipe for success then? They simply ” want more” , ” want stronger” , ” want with all their existence”
Which leads us to next success factor for How You can change Your life – Willpower tips.
2.) Second Success Factor – Willpower:
I would like to focus on Second success factor in this Become Awesome tutorial.
You might ask: ” So, How can I be successful just by wanting something?”
Luckily we can work on cultivating willpower and correcting our destiny by growing willpower and self discipline.
It is ” Willpower” that determines most of your future.
Willpower versus IQ:
Willpower is what proved to be a better predictor of school degrees than IQ.
Self control is more important than IQ since it changes so many things.
Willpower is engine of self-motivation.
You can call Willpower as well the desire, fascination, never satisfied hunger.
Strong desire to succeed is moving power of most of human achievements.
Willpower and self-discipline are strongly connected. For example – if you really, really want something, you are able to learn to ” play by the rules”.
Discipline are rules that will help your desire to get satisfied. Only till next one is ahead of you.
Willpower in school
Students with higher discipline would typically start working on their home assignments sooner.
They would spend more time on tasks assigned by teacher than in-front of TV.
The reason behind might be subject of home assignment, but it can be as well something very different.
Desire might be related to wanting to look very knowledgeable in front of classmates, teacher or colleagues.
Benefits of willpower
People with better self control have lower rate of divorces, they are more emotionally stable.
You can also observe that people with higher willpower are less prone to many other issues.
They would typically not have issues with anxiety, paranoia, drinking disorders, overeating, depressions and even problems related to teeth.
Reason is a that when you are disciplined, you brush teeth regularly and for recommended amount of time – which is 2 minutes :)).
More about Benefits of Willpower
Willpower can help you resist desires and overcome urge to react immediately.
Especially today , when You cannot focus and have problem with paying attention, being present in the moment.
No wonder, just look around Yourself. more distractions than ever try to get Your attention.
Willpower is extremely valuable today, paying full attention to people, being present in current situation is rare and valued.
What is important to remember is that humans are masters of willpower compared to any other living organisms.
Just imagine a dog sitting next to dining table. Dogs have unbelievable patience when it comes to waiting for possibility to get some food from dining people.
You are better, Yes, You are !
People have have highest amount of willpower and resistance to temptations in the morning hours.
We have only one pool of willpower and we use it for everything: resistance of buying something sweet while at shop as well as working on crucial assignment for school.
In practical world this would mean that it is always better to have only one big goal at the time instead of multiple.
How to use willpower?
You should use Self-discipline pool primarily for Your most important task. Also ” Eat that frog first” as Brian Tracy likes to say.
Work on Your Most important assignment first thing in the morning if possible. Otherwise you are risking never completing Your work on it.
