Influencing Powerful People - #7

Energy – what an essential ingredient for success!

A couple of years ago, I wrote:

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

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.

Now, as Dirk confirms, a deep-rooted drive to succeed somehow ignites and sustains people's energy. And, powerful people have a deep-rooted drive to succeed. Powerful people clearly understand their goals and the effort they must sustain in order to achieve those goals. With efforts and energy focused toward achieving goals, decisions become easier and exercising willpower can more-easily become a habit.
