The Benefit of Willpower
“That’s what marks out the warrior: the knowledge that willpower and courage are not the same things. Courage can attract fear and adulation, but willpower requires patience and commitment” – Paulo Coelho.
It takes courage to continue to choose better circumstances for ourselves. And, yes, it takes courage to face circumstances in opposition to our choice.
But in all circumstances, it is willpower that continues to make the difference.
The will to keep choosing, in every moment, at every juncture, what action we will take to make a positive difference to the outcome.
No matter what the circumstances.
Courage. Willpower. Patience. Commitment.
