WILL: (Verb) intend, desire, or wish (something) to happen:energetically and resolutely. make or try to make (someone) do something or (something) happen by the exercise of mental powers:
“Where there is will there will always be a way”– There are so many things in life that twist and turn our journey… AND THAT IS OK! Every twist and every turn is a new adventure, a new lesson, a new strength learned or earned.
The “WILL” is the secret ingredient here. Do you have will? Where do you get “will”? Is will something you can learn? YES! Is will something that you already have? YES! Is will something that your grandma can pass down? YES! Will is everywhere! The real question is WILL you take it, use it, and allow it to drive you? Will you use the Will to power you? Will you become WILL POWERED?
Be Willing to TRY– “How will you know if you never try” the famous line of all parents, teachers and mentors… Who knew how wise that was! So many times we are afraid to try. But why? Because we’re afraid to fail, I used to be but….guess what– you can let go of that fear… failure is good.
Be Willing to FAIL- Fail early Fail often, If you’re not failing, you’re not trying. Failure is the absolute best teacher. It teaches you more lessons than you can ever imagine- perseverance, forgiveness, passion, teaches you how to adjust the situations to create the outcome you desire. Failure makes us stronger, ask any lug-head at the gym- but it works on our inner strengths as well! Each fail teaches us to try it this way, that way, learn more, access and re-access. To reach higher, run faster, think harder, become stronger. Besides after failure you can go home satisfied saying “At least I Tried.”
NOT TRYING IS FAILING!
Be Willing to LEARN and RELEARN- Thanks to technology and innovation… things will ever be changing, Keep learning and re-learning the new ways of everything. Yes some old ways are fine. But what if the new ways and the old ways mixed together become the next great idea! Ideas change the world. My Grandma always said… “If it’s hard you’re doing it wrong” and what she meant by that is there is always a better easier faster way to do things. Stop struggling and start finishing. So that you can move on to something greater.
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
proverb: determination will overcome any obstacle.
HOW BORING would it be if the path were perfectly straight beginning to end? Accept the twists and turns, EMBRACE THEM. They are what makes life the Grandest Adventure of all!
