Willpower is a different kind of power completely different from physical power. Generally people focus on physical power, and to amplify it, go to a gym or adopt different kinds of diet charts. It is good for health but the magic of will power is much superior to it. People hear this word a lot, but don’t know what will power really is.
Grammatically, the meaning of ‘Will’ is desire, the desire to get or do something. ‘Willpower’ means a very strong determination to get or do something, only desire is not sufficient to achieve something. If one doesn’t have a firm determination to get to the goal, then a desire can’t be turned into reality. The reason of most of our failures or our bad habits often stems from the lack of willpower to overcome them.
Perhaps, more than being physically strong, to be successful in life, it is more important to be mentally strong. Mahatma Gandhi was not physically very strong but his strong willpower uprooted the deep foundation of the British empire from India. Increasing the concentration of our minds with the help of meditation and yoga can go a long way in increasing your willpower, thereby paving a successful life.
