In my reading today it talked about willpower. Who has ever blamed the outcome on willpower🙋🏼? The thing about willpower is it is like a muscle. If rely on it too much without strengthening it with good decisions it will fail you every time. A best practice is to plan ahead, avoid situations that will cause you to give in, and the more you practice good decision making the easier it becomes.
Typically your willpower is tied into your emotions. Just like when my workout gets hard and I want to give in I think about my end goal. Before making a decision think about your end goal. Think about how that decision is going to affect your goal. Is it going to get you closer or farther away? If it is not beneficial to your goals then it is best to avoid it all together. By relying on making better choices by thinking about it rather than acting on emotion or your "willpower" you are more likely to see greater success! My last move in my workout this morning was Sumo squats🏋🏼♀️ They used to be one of tougher workouts for me to do! Towards the end I would be gritting my teeth, saying a few not so nice words, my hips would be popping😆 and just like my willpower my weaker thigh muscles would be begging for me to give up! But with perseverance and practice they are now one of my more favorite exercises and are not nearly as hard as they used to be. What do you struggle with and blame it on your "willpower"?

I have never seen a kid be so fastidious with finger painting in my entire life! Give her a paintbrush and she throws all caution to the wind, but try to get her to finger paint and she daintily dips her finger in one color, makes a precise little dab on her paper, then has to wipe off her fingers with a towel before moving on to the next color! It's too funny to watch! (Oh, and can you tell she loves tattoos??) #lilybeth
