You can’t achieve personal improvement without work, but you can make it feel less like work!
With all the countless self-improvement systems, why is it that so many people still don’t feel capable of achieving their most important life goals?
Most self-improvement systems depend on brute force willpower, which is -
despite appearances - actually quite feeble. Consider: have you ever been determined to achieve a personal goal - like getting fit, saving money for a car, or learning a new skill - and then felt like you were at war with that part of yourself that wants to veg out in front of the TV, make an impulsive purchase, or eat one (or two, or six!) of the freshly baked cookies calling to you from the kitchen?
It feels like a battle because it is - between two different parts of your mind. If cookies are your weakness, then it’s as if there’s a cookie monster living inside you. If you deny him what he wants (through Willpower), it only makes him grow stronger and more insistent, while Willpower gets progressively more exhausted. If you get tired, distracted, angry, or bored, Willpower weakens, and as soon as you let your guard down - even for a moment - the cookie monster leaps out and gobbles the cookies.
It’s the same with the Couch Potato, the Social Media Junkie, the Impulsive Shopper, and many other characters - they’re all living in there with us, each looking for their opportunity to take control and grab what they want. Willpower alone is no match for this wild bunch!
The reality is that you are easily twice as capable of achieving your goals as you think you are. But you have to use the right tools! Willpower can be useful but alone is not enough. The fact is, most of our behavior is driven by habits. Habits require no thought—they run automatically. In fact, it takes work to interfere with a habit. To really change your life, rewire your habits so they move you steadily toward your life goals.
