The Way to Will Power by Henry HazlittWill-Power, then, may be defined as the ability to keep a remote desire so vividly in mind that immediate desires which interfere with it are not gratified.
Before you make any formal resolution whatsoever, make certain that you genuinely desire to carry it out. Let there be no doubt that the end you have in view is so desirable or advantageous that it will outweigh all desires or advantages or all the ends that are likely to have to be foregone or abandoned in order to attain it. In short, be sure you are willing to pay the price.
To make a resolve and break it is demoralizing.
Great little book full of wisdom. Must re-read.
