"Building The Will"

Written by John Q. Miller

Continued from page 1

We each have a personal responsibility to makerepparttar most of ourselves here and now.

Our will-power, no less than our other powers, is given to us for intelligent development. As we realize this divine responsibility, we shall seerepparttar 138150 vital importance of willpower and make an increasing effort to build it for high and definite ends. "The education ofrepparttar 138151 will," says Dr. Morell, "is really of far greater importance, for shapingrepparttar 138152 destiny ofrepparttar 138153 individual, than that ofrepparttar 138154 intellect; and it should never be lost sight of byrepparttar 138155 practical educator.

The fatal habit of procrastination should be fought persistently.

You must do things promptly, clearly, and systematically! Instead of permitting ideas, plans, and goals to lie aboutrepparttar 138156 mind in confusion, like scattered papers on an untidy desk, they should be classified, "pigeon-holed," and put into their proper places. Then take them one at a time; give them due consideration, and complete them in a satisfactory and orderly fashion. Doing things gradually in this way, strengthensrepparttar 138157 will-power and, at length, renders it capable of great achievement.

To begin is often halfrepparttar 138158 battle. Don't say "I shall start tomorrow," forgetting that "tomorrow" never comes. For many people, procrastination has conspired to fritter away a whole lifetime in needless and unproductive tasks - due not to lack of ability, but due to weakness of will-power. Goethe says: "Seize this very minute. Whatever you can do or dream - you can begin it."

It is surprising how difficulty yields before a strong and earnest will-power.

A little more resolution and effort, a determination "to do or die," andrepparttar 138159 seemingly impossible is accomplished. "Where there is a will, there is a way," is still true. No one should allow temporary failure to disarm or discourage him or her. A "too easy" success would hardly be worthrepparttar 138160 winning. It isrepparttar 138161 realization of difficulties overcome, of opposition conquered, and of great heights scaled that bring satisfaction torepparttar 138162 mind and joy torepparttar 138163 heart ofrepparttar 138164 victor.

If you have read this far, then you definitely realize that developing your will-power is a fundamental requirement for increasingrepparttar 138165 mighty power of our self-confidence.

-How strong is your desire to acquire this great power? -Is it strong enough to lead you carefully to read more suggestions and to put them into actual practice? -Will you enter upon this study with intense earnestness and perseverance? -Will you make reasonable sacrifice to achieve this great end?

Your answers to these questions will largely determine what your success will be. In fact, I have come to believe that without strong will-power and self-confidence, it will very difficult to be very successful at anything.
