Willpower consumes energy. Energy is scarce. Use willpower wisely.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Willpower must be one of the human body's most energy-intensive processes. 

We must exercise willpower or it becomes weak.

We must rest willpower so it re-energizes. 

Exercising it wisely and resting it: these are the keys to building willpower and growing success.

Beyond Business | Habits: Good Habits, Bad Habits, & New Things | Thought Tweets

Fear is neither our birthright nor our destiny...it is simply a bad habit we picked up and chose to live with...or overcome.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

To overcome fear people must do small amounts of the thing they fear and experience small successes. 

Positive thinking is helpful. Positive action is truly powerful.

Fear crumbles when assaulted repeatedly by methodical small actions.

Here's a definition of Mediocrity: living in bad-habit shadows.

Bad Habits follow us like shadows. Bad Habits make us mediocre. We can replace Bad Habits with Good Habits...it's a matter of choice...and commitment & self-discipline...and it's a matter of trying New Things.

Do you see the light?

A comment for the media: Bad news does not have to make such good news.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We can choose to avoid or choose to limit our exposure to negative situations, experiences, and people.

Bad news does not have to make such good news.

Criticism has no right to reign.

We do so much better when we avoid the "Negative Society"

Willpower: we make a good habit of it or it slips away on us.

Willpower, like any other good habit, demands much energy. So, we must use it wisely and regularly. We must drain it, rebuild it, and strengthen it.

Willpower [and its outcome, self-control]: you must use it or you will not have it. 

The greatest leaders overcome their bad habits. They mould their character to improve their ability to influence others.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Sometimes they replace combative ways with kindness; sometimes they replace softer ways with assertiveness.

Other times they improve their voice, vocabulary, and body language to improve their communication style...adding clarity and power to it.

Great leaders are attuned to their habits, both the good ones and the bad ones. They choose to replace their bad habits with new things - adding good habits, habits proven to deliver positive results.

Beyond everything else, the greatest leaders are masters of self-awareness and self-control.

And they know leadership is an ongoing series of thought-and-action choices. So they define thought-and-action boundaries for themselves and they work continuously at living within those thought-and-action boundaries.
