A lot of the people that I talk with tell me their problem is that they don’t have enough willpower.
And this is really interesting because back in the ‘90s research came out SAYING that willpower is a limited resource.
So - if you’re tired, stressed, or have made a ton of decisions during the day, you’re more likely to run out of it.
And that of course sets you up for not following through on the health and fitness things you said you would do.
But here is the interesting part - new research suggests that ego depletion may only apply
if you believe in it.
So, if you believe you will run out of willpower, you probably WILL.
AND - I think this is actually really great news because it means we can take back control (and personal responsibility!) over your actions — and stop “relying” on that limited resource of willpower!
