While turning my moral science book pages, my eyeballs stuck and zoomed at the chapter “Where there is will, there is a way” glorifying the significance of will power. Various bestsellers are based on enhancing will power, a common topic among students, here and then the angel of will power whisper in the ears. What is will power and why do we need it?
Will power is the ability to swim against the tide and make things happen. Let’s understand it with an example: – Scorching summer is burning you down into ashes. You can’t dim the sun, either you surrender and adapt to the situation or learn the art to construct a house and live inside it with AC on. The situation is same, but you are different. This is a brilliant example of exalted will power.
No motivational videos, books and influential personality can explode the bomb of will power with you. Yes, they could be a catalyst, but not prime igniter. God helps those, who help themselves.
Break your comfort zone
The human tendency is to seek security, he lives in constant state of fear and anxiety. He defines the boundaries, making him feel secure just like a rat in the hole without realizing the unlimited possibilities the world possesses.
Burst the comfort balloon and swim against the tide, pearls are waiting on the other side. Don’t form concrete boundaries, make it stretchable
Learn to forgive and forget
The human mind has unexplored capabilities and imaginative powers. After the sudden success or appreciation, we tend to lose our focus and halt our progress. The overinflated ego and superiority complex makes us feel the master. I am not vulnerable neither can fail, I am a destiny’s child born to win.
When tough times arrive, you fail and due to exceeded expectations, crumble. Be a learner and learn to forgive yourself for the mistakes made. Better be a human rather than demi Gods.
Don’t run on other batteries, self-sustainable personality development is the need of the hour.
