Is the idea of willpower even something that the general populace cares about? A Google search returns nothing but self-help hot air about how you are the only thing keeping you down blah blah blah. I think that is the most true statement of all, and something that I find isn’t readily admitted by the general populace.
But anyway; I don’t really see willpower as a skill that can be honed without the metaphorical whetstone of life to drag yourself against. Man, that turned into a really ham-fisted metaphor. Point being, you can only resist against a force. Obvious? Maybe, but I keep coming back to this concept and coming up with nothing.
