Daily Lift #754

Exercise Your Will-Power

Three times a day, use your will-power to take actions that you do not feel like doing.

Start off with some minor tasks that you know would be helpful to you but you tend to procrastinate. For example, you can apply this to acts of kindness that you could easily do, but tend to put off. Or, you can apply this to doing things for your spiritual well-being and to your health.

After maintaining this for one month, you will find that you have achieved greater self-mastery

(see Rabbi Simcha Zissel Ziv - Chochmah Umussar, vol.1, p.65)
