Complete lack of willpower

I'm not sure what happened to me during the whole dividing up personality traits things but someone missed something. My willpower! It's not even missing, it's never been there in the first place!

If I ever find anything too hard-I can't see the point of wasting my time on it. If I'm short on cash , I will still buy something completely pointless.

And as for eating healthily -forget it!

I'm supposed to be completing a project at the moment but instead I'm here.

I just can never make myself do something I need to or even worse, I just don't even think about it. I completely forget I was supposed to be eating healthily or spending wisely or studying.

I'm sure this is all connected to me willpower because isn't willpower supposed to push you on to want to resist things you don't need or buckle down and do something you can't be bothered to do?

Or is that another personality trait I'm missing?!

And how do I train myself to develop it-because I don't have any willpower to make myself train myself-see vicious circle!

I'm screwed!

And I want my money back as I'm obviously a dud!

I don't get it. Running that is. Why do people do it?

I've tried-I was in an athletics club as a child and I've tried running on and off over the years and have even been told I have a good running technique (whatever the hell that is!!) but after 5 minutes I'm sweating my tits off, breathing like I smoke 40 a day (and I've never smoked in my life-well once as at 15 in the park and trying to be all grown up!) and my legs feel like lead weights.

The longest I've ever ran (without stopping) for is 20 minutes. I've tried building up my tolerance to it but nope. I still hate it.

The annoying thing is that high intensity workouts help me lose weight (unlike the norm which is to lose weight with a low intensity workout). Yes I am a freak of nature!

So ,anyway, I have to make myself do some running occasionally but usually it consists of 10 minutes walking and 10 minutes running before I give up and head for the shower with a beetroot red face that doesn't go away for 3 hours!

So now I've explained in a round about way why I try running and why I hate it!

I want to know how other people get past all that pain and actually get to the part they enjoy and what exactly that part is!
