  1. 3 is the wrong concept of understanding willpower. Alot of people underestimate the vastness of the mind. Instead of thinking it like a muscle imagine a glass of water. How big you picture the glass of water is how big you create your limitations. Everytime you see yourself not doing what your suppose to be doing you will yourself back into course and you use up a certain amount of that water.
    Also to expand your will power effectively go to the edge of uncertainty and push (will) yourself to do that task or be in that environment for as long as you can.

  2. Plenty of girls have had precisely as much Will Power as they can handle. Will Power was hugely famous back in the 70's: big fan of white tube socks with navy blue stripes. Not as popular as Ron Jeremy, but still very famous, back in the day.

  3. If you even find it difficult to do meditation for 5 minutes in the begining, do it for 2 minutes daily until you get used to it, then increase the amount of time gradually. But remember one thing, you'll have to focus on your breath and not anything else in order to increase your focussing power.
