Learning Diabetes Willpower and Motivation

Diabetes willpower and motivation

MotivationDiabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin converts sugar into energy so it is critical to the health of every organ. Diabetes can lead to a wide range of other serious health complications, including heart disease, high blood pressure, blindness and kidney disease.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 to 95 percent of all cases of diabetes and is generally associated with obesity, family history, lack of exercise, and aging. Successful diabetes control starts with weight control. A mere
5% reduction in weight could lead to a 20% decrease in diabetes related complications and death.

Why weight loss is so hard for some people

The answer lies in habits and willpower. Actor Will Smith said he doesn’t believe he is talented but if you put him on a treadmill race, he will make sure he stays on treadmill after everybody else dismounted. He declared in one interview if it needs to be he would die on treadmill. That’s willpower. Willpower is the action that is inscribed in the deepest part of your brain which works as a fundamental driving force for you to succeed. Willpower is constantly reminding you of WHY. if you understand WHY, willpower will work continuously for you. Remind yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing and the consequences of not doing what you’re supposed to do. When you internalize the WHY you will gradually form a habit to do what you’re supposed to do. Best way to remind yourself of WHY is to write down WHY on a piece of paper stick it in your bathroom, your bedroom, your kitchen and in your exercise room.

Small steps equal to big results

Map out your weight loss strategy and write it down, make it a goal and execute with baby steps. Apply “sustained thinking” strategy used by Voltaire. Voltaire declared in the 18th century that no problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking. Simply said, sustained thinking is a process of thinking constantly by putting a priority on the things (problems) which are most imminent. The sustained thinking strategy worked in the 18th century and it still works in today’s world. Every hour, successful people use the sustained thinking strategy to advance their cause or solve their problems. It works because it makes you focus and take action and enjoy doing it.
