The power of the human mind is awe-inspiring. It can move mountains, conjure up planets, and conquer galaxies. And yet, sometimes, it’s as fragile as a house of cards. It’s easy for your will to break down when you’re tired and stressed out because you are no longer in control of your mind. But don’t worry! Here are ten ways to increase your willpower so that you can tackle any obstacle that life throws at you!

10 Ways to Increase Your Willpower

1) Plot your progress toward your goal

This is perhaps the single most crucial hack because it encompasses everything else in this list. To reach your goal, you have to set up milestones. You plot out how much weight you’ll lose, how much money you’ll make, how much time will pass before you accomplish your goal. Finally, you know that there is an end to your struggle, which gives you strength and courage because it’s no longer endless. Life is a series of peaks and valleys, and there are other peaks ahead of this one.

2) Learn how to manage stress

Stress can be your enemy or friend. It is often the most potent obstacle that stands in the way of your goal, and yet it’s also one of the biggest allies you have. Stress helps strengthen us and make us better people. Learning to manage it will help you fight temptation and stay focused, both on the task at hand and on what’s important to you.

3) Meditate for 5 mins a day

This is a straightforward and compelling thing you can do. It’s also very cheap and accessible, so there is no excuse for not doing it! Meditation is an ancient technique that has been used by men and women of all walks of life to achieve some of their most incredible feats. Meditation is useful for everyone, from the bodybuilder who desires to lift more than he thought possible, to the artist who wants his work to go viral.

4) Think beyond the short term

This is a common problem. We think of the long term as something that happens after we die. Therefore, we tend to forget about a long time and focus on short-term pleasures. But you have to remind yourself that there is nothing wrong with thinking beyond the short term. It would help if you did it because it’ll help you in your everyday life and make it much more fulfilling.

5) Forgive your own mistakes and use them as inspiration

Everyone makes mistakes. You’re not perfect, and you never will be. That is bound to happen, and that’s OK! What isn’t OK is staying stuck in the past and letting it consume your future. Instead, learn from your mistakes and use them as fuel for your journey. Now that you got the hang of it, you’ll make even better progress because you won’t make the same mistakes twice!

6) Focus on what is important now

This principle will help you in many aspects of your life. How many times have you skipped out on dinner to go to a boring meeting, or ignored family, friends, or work to watch a mindless TV show? Family and friends are a whole lot harder to replace than jobs. At the same time, money makes it possible to live well. Strike a balance between taking care of responsibilities and cultivating healthy relationships with family and friends.
