WILLPOWER?


Have you ever tried to change something using your “willpower” ? Say that you have a very bad habit such as a drug addiction, or any type of addiction for that matter. You decide that this habit is causing to many problems and it's time to change. How hard can it be, you think to yourself as you put your plan in motion. And so you set out and it's fine the first day, second day, who knows maybe even a week or longer. But then somewhere down the road led only by your willpower you find yourself indulging in the same destructive pattern again. You can ’t seem to figure out how it even happened since you were so set on stopping. You feel weak as if you have failed and worse than you did before you even tried to quit. Now before you totally discredit yourself I will tell you why it didn’t work. It is because the addiction, whatever it is, started out as something you enjoyed doing. The more you did it resulted in forming a habit. Once something is repeated over and over and finds its way to your subconscious mind it cannot be overcome simply using willpower. You can consciously tell yourself you will stop but unfortunately this “habit” has made it through the critical factor and is now in your subconscious mind. Once this happens there is no amount of willpower that can affect it.


You may then think to yourself, this can't be true as you have witnessed other people quitting using “willpower” and it worked for them. Even though that may be the way it appears it is simply not true. These people might seem to have an addiction as well but their habit has never made it though into their subconscious and so that is why they can stop. Eventually it may happen as well to them at a certain point but at this time it has not. So you see they are not using willpower. There have been a lot of studies regarding willpower to back this up and after researching the concept I truly believe there is no such thing as true “willpower”.


It may sound hopeless and if this is all new to you I would just like to let you know there are ways around it. So if this is your first visit I encourage you to explore my site as it is filled with different paths to take to change your subconscious mind if needed.
