Willpower | August 12, 2008


Why most self-development books are useless? They describe methods, materialistic and universal truths. It’s very boring to read and leads to disasters if implemented in real life. However, they do have good points when it comes to willpower training. For example: Start painting the house as soon as you decide it needs a fresh white paint, etcetera.

In my understanding though, it’s never about the methods. Once you believe in truths (in my case it’s existence of The Creator), then this truth starts driving you. The belief migh fade, and consequently the willpower too. Yet as long as it holds, there are always moments of truth, that sometimes long for months, when willpower rules the ego and the body and strives for a single goal. Because the belief drives it.

If the need for habits need to mentioned, then “Yes”, I agree that forcing yourself do write a post (do some exercise, jog, talk politely) for months can eventually become a habit, become your very own nature, and the willpower can deal with something next. There’s no such thing as “vacation” for a real Turkmen.



  1. I really liked this excerpt. It is meaningful and great, not as boring “Strangers” movie.
