Discipline and willpower doesnt exist. it is mostly a word which is used as an excuse by the mind. the mind paints the word discipline as a magic potion, that if you had it you would be able to do anything. The same with willpower.

at least when you use it in the "I have no 'x' to do 'y' "

There is no chemical hormone gene or part of the brain called discipline or willpower.

When we say someone has discipline or willpower all we mean is this: this person consistently commits to acting on their values, and doing what is required to achieve their goals- even when they dont feel like doing it.
This is from a book.

Here is something fun to try. Want to know where your surname is the most popular or least popular?

http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org/Main.aspx

I found that with mine, it's Highest in eastern Switzerland, but also seen in baden-wutternburg, southern and midlands in England and for some strange reason, the cataluna region in spain.

Just because we don't understand the why and how doesn't mean that it ceases to exist. "Willpower" exist, we just can't properly explain and describe it yet.

Some of these chinese/japanese novels I'm reading at the same time are quite weird.
In one, a man is reborn into a magical world in a Europe-like continent. He introduces Football as a way to gain a lot of cash, starting with his father's soldiers. One of them, a thin but strong blond guy, turns out to have a god sent foot and when he asks his name, he naswers that his name is David Beckham, the MC remains speechless out of feeling trolled by the Universe. Before that he captured a pirate ship and elevated a dark haired and slightly feminime man to captain and renames him as Jack Sparrow, the ship as the Black Pearl and his new growing fleet as the McDonalds.
He encounters the continents genius swordsman, a blond guy named Saddam Hussein, he also encounters a pathetic mage named Gargamel.

Yeah, this novel is kind of strange but very entertaining. The Universe trolls the MC and the MC trolls the Universe in return.

Sounds interesting.

Where do you find those translated Asian novels?

There's a few pages that gather translators, but only a few large ones. Wuxiaworld is the largest that I know of.
The novel I wrote about, Law of the Devil, is a bit harder to pin down. It's spread out on several translators as some have dropped it and others have picked it up, luckily that the current translator links to all older translators on his site.
Most translators like to take in donations to speed up their translations. Some release like 3 chapters a week but can release another 4 if they get donations, I've not donate yet but I'm inclined towards it.

The two most epic novel series that I've read and are still reading are Coiling Dragon(the great story of Supreme Master Linley Baruch) and Douluo Dalu(The great story of Tang San, the Thousand-hand Asura).

http://www.wuxiaworld.com/
https://bluesilvertranslations.wordpress.com/
https://bcat00.wordpress.com/
There's many novels on Wuxiaworld.
The second is Daluo Dalu.
The third is the Law of the Devil.

I finally caught up with translation of Law of the Devil. It is very well worth reading, things have started to become very serious and complicated.
Some wuxia and xianxia novels can be quite primitive and simple but Law of the Devil, Just like Coiling Dragon, Douluo Dalu and the novels written by Er Gen, are quite detailed and complex.
Meng Hao, the best protagonist of Er Gen, is quite the treat to follow especially as Er Gen's novels have quite the dark bend.

There is also http://shiroyukitranslations.com/
I've only read one of their novels so far, it's quite primitive but still enjoyable because the protagonist is the biggest troll I've encountered in east asian entertainment since Joseph Joestar and Gintoki.

Normally you'd ask an admin or moderator. There was a point a few years back where a whole bunch of people petitioned for name changes (myself included).

There is only one true Archdruid and his name is xxMoonbeamxx, wielder of the Scythe of Elune.

It does sort of resemble the black sun, now that I think of it.
