Develop Your Will Power

Have you seen the following videos from my Inspiring Videos blog?

After having seen the above videos, I believe you will agree with me that "Where there's a will, there's a way."

Too many develop every talent except the talent to use all other talents - Will power. In our every day tasks, we need will power to get things done. With it, many could overcome boredom, drudgery and obstacles. The most valuable education is that which trains us to do what should be done, when it should be done, whether we feel like it or not.

"Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear." - Dan Millman

"People do not lack strength; they lack will." - Victor Hugo

"Willpower is the strength of mind to carry out one's goals." - Sandy Anderson

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” - Confucius

An ounce of will power is worth a pound of knowledge. It takes guts to leave ruts. Successful men acquire the will power to make themselves do what success demands. They do the things failures don't like to do or can't make themselves do.

"There are dozens of success traits; but will power is the tool that builds them all. To develop will power or discipline, do one useful thing every day for no other reason than that you don't feel like doing it. In my 40 years of studying psychology, that's the best exercise I've found for developing will power" - the method of Wm. James, Harvard psychologist.

Well, what ways do you employ to strengthen your will power?
