More will power and more effort are not the answer

More will power and more effort are not the answer 
If I have a story that if they say “no” then I will die – then it will take a lot of will power and effort and angst for me to make phone calls to prospective clients. And, I’m going to end up not making calls very often.
In a situation like this, more effort and more will power are not the answer. Instead, I need to spend some time in the personal growth gym and upgrade my story about phone calls.
When I create an inspiring story about making calls then it is going to take far less will power and effort to make those calls and probably no angst at all. And, I’m going to end up making more calls.
More effort and more will power are seldom (if ever the solution). Upgrading our stories is almost always the solution.
Our stories create our behaviors. So, when we have a behavior that we would like to change, start with upgrading the story around that behavior.
