Willpower - Your Inner Strength
By Remez Sasson

Willpower is the inner strength and inner engine that propels towards success and achievement. It is the power that pushes into action in every area of life. It is one of the most important and desirable inner powers, and its lack or presence determine whether you will fail or accomplish your desires and ambitions and attain success.

Willpower is erroneously considered as a quality belonging only to highly successful people, who depend on strength and force to achieve their goals. The truth is that it can be developed by everyone, and it is important, useful and desirable in the small affairs of life, as it is in the achievement of major goals.

If you usually feel too lazy, developing your inner strength will help you to overcome this laziness. If you usually procrastinate, possess low self-esteem, feel weak and vulnerable or lack self-control, strengthening this power will help you too.

Willpower, which is inner strength, manifests as the ability to control unnecessary and harmful impulses. It also manifests as the capability to decide, abide by this decision, and follow it with perseverance until its successful accomplishment. This ability gives you the courage and strength to endure and overcome inner and outer resistance and opposition, difficulties and hardships.
There are many who lack the inner strength to say "no", when they mean it. They find it difficult to follow and assert their ideas and beliefs. They are afraid to take action and make changes. They lack resolution and the persistence to go on with their plans to the end. A strong power of the will can change all this.

It is the right and privilege of everyone to develop this ability. Everyone can develop it to a greater or smaller extent, depending on the desire, earnestness, ambition and time devoted to developing and strengthening this inner power.

In many of my other articles, and in the book "Will power and self discipline", I have emphasized the importance of developing this ability, and showed how to do that. You do not require super ordinary powers to develop it. You do not need to sleep on a bed of nails, fast or stand on one foot for days, as fakirs do. The concept that to develop this ability you have to undergo suffering and physical mutilation is not true

Developing the power of the will is a gradual process that anyone can undertake. Some will be able to reach higher levels of power, and others will reach different degrees of development, but the way is open to all. You start with small simple exercises, and as your power grows, you gradually progress to exercises that need more inner strength.

You will have to give up some unnecessary and harmful pleasures, and change some unhealthy habits, but this is for a higher good. You give up something harmful or useless in order to gain strength and power that will help you in every area of your life. In fact, the whole process can be turned into an absorbing, enjoyable and interesting challenge.

Training and exercising the willpower will fill you with strength, courage, and assertiveness. All you have to do is give up your negative and unnecessary habits, weaknesses and obsessions. As your power grows, it will be easier for you to throw away habits and attitudes that stand in your way to a better life. You will gain inner strength that will help you at your job, home, relations, hobbies, tasks and ambitions.
