Life is Easier with Strong Willpower

The comparison of willpower and muscles makes it visual. Imagine someone athletic going up a mountain: This person will get more quickly to the peak as a couch potato. The athlete will enjoy the hike, not complaining about every step. Let the mountain embody the healthy things you want to do in life. You might have to start with a hill or a single step. Over time, you can become athletic, but only if you practice a bit ahead of what you can do every day. The higher you get, the easier daily decisions become. And so the more joyful your life will be.
