Which Motivational Power do you have – Will Power OR Want Power?

Today, we will be discussing one of the most important topics that is of interest to you all. It called “Motivational Power”.

What is Motivational Power?

Motivational Power in other words called the Inspirational power within us. This is the power that fuels the positive energy which makes us achieve any worthwhile goal in life. Success in any field requires a positive mindset, hard-work and the determination to succeed.

Achieving any goal in life is like taking a drive by car. You set your starting point – then you put fuel into your car and then set towards your final destination.

Will Power to Want Power

When it comes to the question of achieving any objectives in life, the ‘vehicle’ that you use to achieve your objectives is your mind. Just like you make the journey by car, when you want to achieve your goal in life-  you need to identify your starting point, decide on your destination point, put the right fuel in your mind and then decide on your journey.

Now let us talk about the two different kinds of power that we have. They are Will Power and Want Power. Now, I will explain both of them in detail.

  • Will Power:

When you are increasing the levels of Will Power, you are forcing yourself to take action.  From my personal experience, this simply does NOT work. The main reason is that Will Power is a Fast Burning Fuel. It burns rapidly and then it runs out.

One of the common example is the New Year’s Resolution. At the beginning of every new year, you have seen that you make great resolutions to achieve something productive and after a few days, you come back to normal schedule.

One example I will give you is the resolution of becoming fit. You take the oath of going for exercise everyday in the morning. One fine day, you had to go out for a party. This disrupts your schedule and you don’t go for exercise that day. From next day, you will it easier to make excuses of not going to exercise. This is because the Will Power Tank is empty.

So, what is the alternative to this approach. If Will Power is the fast burning fuel that runs out – what is the alternative that can help you achieve your drive and motivation.

There is another alternative – that is called “WANT POWER”. Now, we will talk about Want Power.

  • Want Power:

Want Power works completely in a different way to Will power. When you try to use Will Power, your mind is filled with Negative Thoughts. When you use Will Power, you force yourself to take action. But this Internal Battle is exhausting and your Will Power runs out.

When you replace these negative thoughts and use them with Positive Thoughts – it compels you to take action which becomes a Burning Desire to take action.

Let me explain this with an example. Imagine the final year engineering student who has to complete this final year project. The internal thoughts that run in her mind are as below:

  1. This project is tough.
  2. But I have to get it done.
  3. I have to stop wasting time and do some work.

As you can see from the above example, the student’s mind was filled with negative thoughts. When she made the switch to Want Power, the internal thoughts completely changed. They are as below:

  1. This is my last project.
  2. I am so close to achieving my goal.
  3. If I ace this project, I could win the Project Award of the year.

By replacing the negative thoughts to positive thoughts – the student completely transformed her attitude. Rather than forcing to do the work, the student wanted to do the work. This is what Want Power is all about.

When you make the switch from Will Power to Want Power, you will find that everything changes. Unlike Will Power, the Want Power is a slow burning fuel which can sustain the efforts for months or even years if required.

Advantages of using Want Power:

  • Really Want Something to do.
  • Eliminate the Negative Dialog.
  • Develop a Burning desire.
  • Never Run out of Steam.
  • Never lose interest.
  • Never be distracted.

How do we make the Switch from Will Power to Want Power?

Now I will talk in brief about the three important steps that you need to take in order to make the switch. They are as below:

  • Visualization.
  • Create a Morning Focus Routine.
  • Create a Evening Focus Routine.

Visualization:

Visualization involves you to take a future photograph of what you want to be in the future. By Visualization, I don’t mean to close your eyes and just imagine what you want to be in the future.

This maybe in the past. But today, technology has changed and there is a way you can do this. The method I call – is creating a Vision Video. A Vision Video is a combination of images, text and music to bring your goals to life. This will be used to plant them deep into your sub-conscious mind.

Create a Morning Focus Routine:

This is the second step where you spend 15 mins in the morning. This involves 5 mins of prayer, 5 mins of watching the vision video and 5 mins of meditation.

When you begin to do this on a daily basis, you will begin to feel a more productive day which will trigger your day in achieving greater results.

Create a Evening Focus Routine:

This is the final step where you spend 15 mins in the evening. This involves 5 mins of gratitude, 5 mins of Vision Video and also 5 mins of planning for next day.

Once you develop doing this for the next 90 days, you will realize that your life will change dramatically.
