Strength Of Will
If you’re sitting around waiting to be motivated, you’ll never get anything done
Sure motivation might help you get things started,
But finishing things is a completely different story
Motivation can spark you into action, but it’s not what sustains you
What sustains you is your strength of will.
Having the conviction to see something through
And like any muscle, strength of will can be developed
But it requires exerted effort, intentional exerted effort.
It’s painful and uncomfortable, but it’s the cross you bear if you know its worth it
But we may have become a little spoilt in this life
A little too accustomed to easy
When nothing of any real value ever comes easy
We’re so addicted to comfort, that we don’t know what to do when things become uncomfortable
Don’t expect easy, because life was never meant to be easy
And no one is coming to save you; it’s YOU that needs to will it into existence
Not by sitting around and manifesting ‘secrets’
But rather by making a commitment to yourself and then getting at it and keeping at it
If you’re looking for a secret, then it’s this.
There aren’t any.
Everything is laid out clearly before you, if you care enough to look.
Nature tells you, you only reap what you sow
It’s motivation y strength of will y grace, all conspiring to get you where you need to be
There are no shortcuts
There is no easy way
The best way to get ahead is to get started.
And it’s when you combine your will, with the overarching will inscribed in all of creation, that things really start making sense
