The Secret of the Will - Page 1

WHILE psychologists may differ in their theories regarding the nature of the Will, all affirm its existence, and its power. All persons recognize the power of strong Will - all see how it may be used to overcome the greatest obstacles. Some realize that the Will may be developed and strengthened by intelligent practice. They feel that they could accomplish wonders if they had a strong Will, and when attempting to develop it, they spur themselves with reliable satisfaction. They breathe, and do it.

Those who have investigated the subject closely know that Will Power, with all its latent possibilities and mighty powers, may be developed, disciplined, controlled and directed, just as may be any other of Nature's forces. You may entertain any theory about the nature of the Will, and you will still obtain the results if you practice intelligently.

Personally, I have a somewhat odd theory about the Will. I believe that everyone has, potentially, a strong Will, and that all they have to do is to train their mind to make use of it. I think that in the higher regions of the mind of everyone has a great store of Will Power awaiting their use. The Will current is running along the psychic wires, and all that it is necessary to do is to raise the mental trolley-pole and bring down the power for your use. And the supply is unlimited, for your little storage battery is connected with the great powerhouse of the Universal Will Power, and the power is inexhaustible. Your Will is just there it is your Mind that needs training. The mind is the instrument and the supply of Will Power is proportionate to the fineness of the instrument through which it manifests. Accept this theory if you like it. But, this lesson will fit any theory as well as mine.
