Odysseus

Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear. – Dan Millman

It was a Greek myth – of Odysseus ordering his men to tie himself to the mast of his ship, so as not to be tempted by the Sirens.

How many times do we crumble due to lack of will power?

How many times do we expect ourselves to deliver only to find us failing?

How many times do we want to achieve, only to realize that we are distracted?

Man’s mind-power is strong. Our willpower is strong. Just like any of our muscles, it gets better through practice.

Yet, we don’t have to make it any harder for ourselves. Make it work for you.

Know what temptation standing between you and your dreams.

Nip it in the bud, never let it grows to uncontrollable size.

Change your environment – remove all distraction.

Surround yourself with supportive and like-minded persons.

Fill your mind with positive thoughts.

Listen to motivational speeches daily.

What are your techniques in removing the temptation? What tips work best for you?
