Developing your will-power is directly related to success in life. No one can ever estimate the power of your will.
Most people dont end up failing because of too little education, but from lack of determination and concentrated will-power.
Just as the athlete trains for his physical race around the track; the mind must be put into training if you want to win lifes race.
The process of obtaining this self-mastery "the complete command of your minds powers" is a gradual one. It involves determination and the daily task of making it a habit. Once you have self-mastery, the cost of obtaining it will seem like a drop in the bucket.
You dont need to be a genius to succeed, just make yourself do the thing you have to do when it has to be done, whether you like it or not. Its the best lesson you can learn!
When Henry Ward Beecher was asked how he could accomplish so much more than others, he replied, "I dont do more, but less than other people. They do all their work three times. Once in anticipation, once in actuality, and once in rumination. I do mine in actuality alone, so I end up doing things just once."
Beecher could concentrate his mind on what he was doing at a given moment. Then hed go to something else and concentrate on it. One of the secrets of a successful life is to be able to focus all our energies on one thing.
The habit of worrying crowds your thoughts with worthless clutter. Focus on what youre doing while youre doing it, and stop worry in its tracks. The worry habit constantly saps your energy. It reduces your chances of success.
If you dont learn to focus your efforts, you will never achieve the success youre capable of. The earlier in life you learn this, the better! Heres a recipe for a wasted life, just go about every day trying to do too many things at once. Splitting yourself up into a hundred parts leads to nowhere.
Concentrate your efforts on one task at a time, and youll reach the top. Its not the amount of work that you can do in one stretch, but your persistence that pays off.
Keeping at it... thats the key!
