Wonderful good morning ♥️ I wnt to start this day with an issue called willpower what comes into your mind when you think abot willpower? Is it naturall to you ir something you have to force?.
In my case I had to force it... many times! Yours ago I couldn't image that I would have goals in my life, literally nothing to motivate me was there! I had no willpower, I let days pass, didn't think about future, struggled very bad through my teenages! I took a job to make my parents happy. While hating this job, forcing my willpower everyday and fighting everyday with my parents I lost any kind of motivation, I got more and more negative, I lost myself somewhere. I talked to my parents that I am very unhappy, about quitting job and start something technical… the reaction of my parents was: “that’s normal.. you get used to it and technical stuff is for smart people” … that’s where I realized that my parent ain’t gonna live my life for me – Nobody is going to, so fuck what people say and I do what I want. My parents didn’t respect my decision. I had to move out, things got worse. I was on alone on my own with no perspective. All I heard was, you are nothing, so you become nothing, stop dreaming of bullshit. I realized that this was my MOTIVATION. Everyone was kind of disappointed and so I started to persue ME! I started a job, went to school in the evening, got my A-Levels and then started styding while working. And guys I tell this were the hardest times I had to go through. Today I am proud of myself and know what WILLPOWER itself can do when your circumstances are “humble” (sh*t)! The worst thing you can do in such situations is thinking the world is unfair, to sink into self pity, this will just stop you and lead you to bad thoughts -> bad reality. (experienced)
What helped me was that everything I do, I do FOR ME NOW, that’s why forcing willpower stopped someday and it become natural to work for my dreams everyday. And no, it is not always easy, it sometimes needs to be focused and reschudled again, but I never needed willpower to go to work or to post for instagram. Everything that you force won't make you happy [...in the comments]
