The Will

Having the “will” to do something is like having a magical power at times.

The “will to win” and even the two actionable phrases which most of us are now hip to:

  • I will or I can
  • I can’t or I will not

Say those two phrases in your head, and see if you can feel inside of you the inner motion of the waves and neurological energy that sparks or doesn’t spark.

Bruce Lee on The Will:

“It is the WILL that makes men, success takes perseverance.”

“Experience shows that the athlete who forces himself to the limit can go as long as necessary. It means that ordinary effort will not tap or release the tremendous amount of latent power in the human body. Extraordinary effort, highly emotionalized conditions, or a true determination to win at all costs will release this extra energy.”

“The spiritual power of a man’s will removes all obstacles.

lastly, and most importantly:

“What does self-willed mean? Hell, isn’t it knowing above all, that indeed, one is the captain of one’s soul, the master of one’s life? Now what causes such realization and , consequently, brings about a change in one’s behavior? TO BE REAL, TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ONESELF.

The innate power in the body enacted when you decide that you WILL indeed do something, no matter the cost, is quite possibly one of the strongest powers in the world.

Whether you decide to use it or not is completely up to you and your will.
