Wealth Activation Blueprint

Suppose you've decided to swear off donuts. Wealth Activation Blueprint Review A friend offers you an especially delicious-looking donut, and you really, really want it. Will you have enough willpower to say NO despite the powerful urge to say YES? Let's say your intention turns out to be no match for the donut. As you lick the last of the crumbs and frosting off your fingers, you conclude, "I just don't have enough willpower." Your conclusion may seem perfectly logical. But it's actually wrong. It only seems right because of a faulty assumption you're making. You're assuming that willpower is like physical strength - that you own a more or less a fixed amount of it; that willpower doesn't really vary much from situation to situation. Nothing could be further from the truth. How much willpower you have depends a whole lot on the particular situation you're in. You can be in a situation that robs you of every ounce of willpower. And you can be in a situation that gives you more willpower than you've ever dreamed of having. What's more, it's possible to deliberately engineer situations to manufacture all the willpower you need. To illustrate how situations affect willpower, let's take another look at the donut situation. Suppose just as you were about to give in to temptation, your friend tells you that you will have to pay for the donut. "How much?" you ask. "Fifteen thousand dollars," she answers. "I'm serious," she adds. "I can see how much you want it." So, now do you have enough willpower to say "No thanks" to that yummy donut? I'll bet you do! If willpower is something you just have a certain amount of, how come you suddenly have so much of it? Where did this sudden influx of willpower come from? The answer is, it was manufactured by the situation. Putting an outrageous price tag on what had been an irresistible donut made the donut quite resistible. As a result of changing the situation, you went from not having enough willpower to having plenty. The new situation, in other words, gave your intention all the "lifting power" it needed to triumph over temptation. Whether we recognize it or not, situations always play a major role in determining how much willpower we have. Not only can the right situations give our intentions extraordinary lifting power, the wrong situations can - and routinely do - rob us of willpower.
