Default Willpower

Would you say that you have willpower? I never used to have any. Someone would offer me something that I should not have eaten and I would stuff my face with it. But I have noticed that since I started working out and lifting I have had more will power than ever. Do you have it?

I do have willpower. I have noticed that since I started working out I have it more. So yes it does pay to work out

Willpower is getting better. I used to be one of those that had zero willpower and I do mean zero. But I find that my willpower improves each and every day

Mental discipline, will power, whatever you want to call it comes from a strong enough desire to do or not do something to better yourself.

When i'm training hard i get real focused on my diet. I went almost 2 years once with out slipping up. When I'm off or life gets to busy to be as focused on training as i'd like i tend to mess up on my diet a lot more.

2 years is awesome. Keep up the good work. Do you get hard on yourself when you do mess up?

I work way too hard to give in to a temporary fix like a giant piece of cake and ice cream!

Willpower, I guess, is defined as an inner battle in which you eventually come out as the victor by not giving in...so, no, I don't have any because if I set a goal or an eating plan etc, I stick to it, willpower is never part of it.

Cool

I think that Will is developed and honed by Practice—just like many other things.

When you feel better it's easier to exercise it.

Also, when you have a goal firmly in mind.

Once you establish good Habits, less Willpower is called into play.

That being said, People Fall into Error and Bad Ways.

You never hear of someone Falling into Truth or Better Ways.

Improvement is—almost by definition—an "Upstream" type activity.
