THE SECOND GATEWAY: RECLAIM YOUR WILL
Below are excerpts from Dan Millman's 'Way of the Peaceful Warrior'
Inside you is untapped strength of will, of spirit, of heart. The kind of strength that will not flinch in the face of adversity. You have only to remember your purpose, the vision that brought you to Earth--the vision that will take you to the stars--to the depths of the oceans and up the stairway to the soul. Great strength of will resides in you, waiting for expression.
Until you reclaim you will--assert you power to act upon what you know--even the best plans remain unrealized.
JUST DO IT!!
-the terms "will, "willpower", "self-discipline" and "self-control" are used interchangeably, because any of them, when applied over time as patience, persistence, and perserverence, lead to self-mastery
The will is like a muscle: it grows stronger with use. And like your muscles, it needs to move to exert itself.
3 Basic Guidelines for Living:
Accept your feelings
Know your purpose
Do what needs to be done
Your immediate goals are the bread crumbs leading you toward what you cannot yet see........final goal.
