In a previous article we discussed the importance of possessing or acquiring certain needed traits in order to move forward toward your goals. We expounded on the importance of developing an Intense Desire and how so doing would move you to action. In this article we are going to examine another needed attribute. To continue to forge a path toward prosperity you must possess or develop a Steadfast Will.
Will power enables you to maintain balance and constructively utilize all your energies. It will afford you the ability to overcome inertia and the temptation to procrastinate. You may be attempting new and difficult tasks and with a weak will you have little chance of succeeding. A Steadfast Will, on the other hand, empowers you to follow through on your decisions. To succeed in business, to fulfill dreams, to master an art, to become skilled in a new profession requires determination, perseverance and an indomitable will. Therefore it behooves you to develop a strong, resilient will, one that will carry you through impediment.
How can you strengthen your willpower? Create physical, emotional, and mental challenges to test yourself and overcome them. Just as physical exercise strengthens your body muscles, challenges to your mind will brace you determination and endurance.
For example, do something you are fearful of to put your emotions to the test. I do not like the dark and generally leave a light on at night. Recently I decided to confront my fear. I have been walking/sitting in the dark. At first I was fearful and uncomfortable. My urge was to get up quickly and turn on the light. But I exercised my will (I wanted to conquer my fear) and stayed in the dark until I was unafraid.
Challenge your physical will by walking a few miles daily, Each day increase the distance to demand more from yourself when it becomes strenuous. Use difficult crossword puzzles or a profound book to challenge your mind. The key to making it successful and strengthening your will is to not give up when it gets difficult or tiring but going on until you have completed the task at hand.
Use your inner power to overcome these small challenges and you will develop an inner strength. that will overcome the internal emotional and mental resistance for taking action. If you persist in an earnest endeavor to become stronger, whether it be physical, emotional or mental, you will succeed in creating a steadfast will. A Steadfast Will , once elicited into action, can lead you into happy and prosperous lifestyle, brushing aside every hindrance.
