Would my life be better if I had more willpower? What could I achieve in life? What would I see through and master? Which of my dreams would come true?

The long-term rewards are abundance and true happiness.
A simple trick to increase your willpower is: For seven days define 3-5 daily tasks you feel uncomfortable with. Write them down and get them done. It feels great.
The best time to do that is right now (; which is why I have prepared a template for you: HERE
