Before we walked our way, we were the way. An abstract of values, efforts, goals and dreams. Therefore, if there is a tree to plant, let's plant it; if there is an error to repair, repair it; and if there is an effort to be made, let's do it.The will is what allows to remove the stone from the path.If we had enough willpower, we would almost always have enough resources …
Hermann Hesse, a German writer, poet, novelist, and painter, said that when someone really needs something, he finds it; it is not chance that will offer him but his own person. His own desire and need will lead him to this thing. In other words,there is nothing we can not achieve if we are hard at it. Even if it seems difficult.Perseverance is what gives value to things.
Believing is the second power. To want is the first.The mountains that faith moves are nothing beside what the will does. Man does not realize what he can do before trying it, meditating and putting will.
"It is said that I am a hero, me, that weak, timid, almost insignificant being, if I could do what I did by being so, imagine what you can do together."
The choice of the path
Nobody lacks strength. It's mostly consistency that has flaws.The great difficulties become smaller if the will intervenes. Any path can be traveled if it proliferates. Rudyard Kipling said it already in his time: if you ask a man to do more than he can, he will do it. If you only ask him to do what he can do, he will not do it.
We are half awake. We use only a small part of the physical and psychological resources we have and the same thing happens with our perseverance.We are better able to hide than to look ahead to confront problems and seek solutions.We forget that as soon as we have confidence in ourselves, we will discover how to live and be happy.
To be authentic in a world that is constantly trying to make us others is our biggest challenge.The paths are a mirror of our decisions. Do we really want to end up hiding our dreams under a rug to reach a supposed and overrated compliance? If so, take the paths that everyone takes. If not, choose to deviate from this road and cross fields: in doing so, we will be ourselves in a world created by our will.
"If we did all the things we are able to do, we would literally catch ourselves, it's all about willpower."
-Thomas Alva Edison-
Will is the most powerful of the driving forces
The force of will is the impulse that drives us to achieve our goals.A person with great strength of will will make his decisions, even in the face of great opposition and obstructions of all kinds. On the other hand, a person with a weak force of will will yield easily in the face of adversity.
This force is linked to desire. If we do not desire something enough, it is likely that the will we use to succeed at this task is weak. On the other hand, if we have an immense desire and a great will, we will surely persist until we reach our goal.
As we see,to love is not everything in life: it takes willpower to move mountains,to go forward and plant the seeds of self-confidence.
"Successful people are scared, successful people have doubts and successful people have concerns, they just do not let those feelings stop them."
