Using Won’t Power in a Positive Way

At one time in my life, I was guilty of almost letting “won’t power” take over my life. It was because my dad constantly used the word won’t: “You won’t amount to anything Joe”. “You won’t make it. “You won’t get anywhere in life”. I had to grit my teeth and counter with “I will, I will, I will. I will became the spark of my ambition. I’m no psychologist, but my personal belief is that using willpower is, for many, simply too much effort. Well, of course it calls for effort. It calls for being tough.

I mastered my way to the top by learning to use “won’t power” in a positive instead of a negative way. I simply used the opposite of willpower to good advantage and made it work for me. Be ambitious! Be tough! Use those words as you practice this Girard technique to develop the self-discipline necessary for willpower to really work for you.

I start each day with affirmations like these:

  • I won’t give up as I take the stairs to the top, one step at a time.
  • I won’t let obstacles get in my way. I’ll kick them out of my path
  • I won’t let others discourage me.
  • I won’t put off until tomorrow those things that I should do today.
  • I won’t quit anything I’ve started that’s right for me to do.

By using “won’t power” this way, something strange and wonderful takes place. You’ll soon find yourself using willpower instead, and you’ll be surprised at the results. You will push yourself to work smart. You will find yourself using your time to the best advantage. You will be exercising self-discipline day after day. You will stay ambitious and be tough on yourself.

And whenever someone or something tries to knock you off balance, tough it out! You are the world’s number one product and you will become what you think. Have faith in yourself and believe that good is going to come your way. Don’t fill your head with discouragement; think of yourself as a strong person who is in control and who won’t give up!
