LIFE AND WILL POWER.
Will power is needed to wake up early, to run an extra mile, to do a hard task, to keep going when you are tired, to keep your relationship fresh, to face problems, etc.
Will power can help you to improve your life. How?
TIME AND PATIENCE.
A sequoia tree becomes really huge, but it takes many years for it to grow up. Some of them are more than 100 years old. Nature itself is amazing and it builds beautiful things like the Grand Canyon, but it took million of years to be the way it is now.
wisdom does not come form reading a book and not even form reading many books. wisdom comes form knowledge and experience built during many years.
do not expect things to be easy and/or quick. Will Power can be developed with discipline and practice; but it requires time and patience or persistence and patience.
YOGA AND EXERCISES TO DEVELOP WILL POWER.
There is not a magic trick, but a daily devotion to what you love. A yogi knows very well this: Nature takes time, it does not rush, but it builds what it has to build. It could take a year, a decade or more, but a yogi goes for it.
Will power comes as a result of a high discipline, perseverance and patience. What to do? Just keep your goal in your mind and work for it day by day. Each exercise, each yoga practice is one step toward your goal. That is it!
Some people might doubt about you. some might say you will not do it. But you are there to show then how wrong they are because you got a goal in your mind and courage enough in your heart to fight for what you want.
Age is not an obstacle, but an incentive to show that you can. Yes, it might be hard to do, but the price is worthy. That is what you have to set in your mind. If you want muscles you work for it. If you want flexibility you work for it. If you want strength you work for it. If you ant more focus you work for it.
Yes, you can take a break, but do not ever give up because the goal is waiting for you. Take the discipline of yoga and/exercising to your goals in life and fight for your dreams. Who else will do that for you? Nobody else. It is your own business and you are there for it.
The feeling to improve is awesome, the feeling to get it is even better. Nobody can stop you if you really want it. So you have to want it really bad to fight for it.
Each morning picture yourself tasting the victory because it will be yours if you fight for it. Each workout counts toward the goal you want to get. Each asana counts, so go for it.
That is the beauty of exercising with commitment. That is the power of doing yoga with your heart. Bring that beauty and that power to your life to fight and then you will know what will power really is!
PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE!
Many people fail because they lack patience and perseverance. Buddha said: "Patience is a whole army." The path to your goal might be long, but step[ by step you get closer!
Will Power can be developed as everything is developed. The key is practice, practice and practice. Yes, everybody wants a short cut; but this is real life, it is not a movie. Achieving something in real life takes time. So, practice, practice and practice until you get Will Power; practice, practice, practice until you get what you get!
Both (Patience and perseverance) are the virtues you need to get whatever you want. Will Power comes as a result of practicing those two great virtues of the one who wants to succeed!
Ask to any body builder: "How long does it take to have big muscles?" Ask to any gold medal Olympian: "How long does it takes to be like you?" The answer will be" "Year of practicing!" How can you ask for anything less? Be bold, go for it and practice, practice and practice!
MOTIVATION VS WILL POWER!
Will Power comes from your attitude and your sincere desire to get something. The way you see things (Attitude) is really important and so is a sincere desire.
Many people start something out of a desire and motivation; but many stop. Why? Because motivation along is not enough and without a sincere desire is fruitless.
If you need motivation all the time you will stop sooner or later. Will Power is the force that goes all the way to the end! It comes from practicing patience and perseverance: DO NOT GIVE UP UNTIL YOU GET IT! GO FOR IT!
I always say: "AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT HURT ANYONE THEN FIGHT FOR YOUR DREAMS, DO WHAT YOU WANT AND GO FOR IT!"
POSITIVISM AND WILL POWER.
A negative person, for example, think of the problems to achieve something. We rather think on how to achieve it! We better focus on how to get what we want. A negative person focus on his/her weakness. We rather focus on our abilities and if we need help then we get help. A negative person looks for pretexts to stop. We rather look for reasons to keep going. A negative person hears all those people telling him/her not to do or go. We rather listen those who support our actions; if nobody does then we listen our instinctive. Negative people see how long the path is. We rather focus on the goal. Negative people become frustrated when things are hard. We rather remember that WHATEVER IS WORTHY TAKES TIME TO ACCOMPLISH; BUT ALL EFFORTS ARE WORTHY AT THE END!
A negative person is holding on his/her back a huge sack of heavy things: Thoughts, emotions, bad attitude, etc. We rather empty that sack so we can move forward and without distractions.
yes, we all need to be positive when starting a project, we need to be positive all the way to the end. Nevertheless, actions are requires since the very beginning. Nobody can through any road without motion.
DO NOT EVER LET A PESSIMISTIC MIND TO CONTROL YOU, OTHERWISE YOU WILL LOSE PRECIOUS OPPORTUNITIES THAT MIGHT NEVER COME BACK!
will Power is a need to accomplish any task or project, but keep your faith. You have to believe in yourself, if you do not then you will not make it.
You need to develop patience and perseverance to get real Will Power. This is sure: YOU CAN DO IT!
