Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. Will power is essential to the accomplishments of any things worth while. It is the key stone in the arch of human achievement. It is the culmination of our complex mental faculties. It is the power that rules minds, men and nations. When there is a will there is a way. Will is character in will power is to the mind like a strong blind man who carries on his shoulders a lame men who can see. Free will and determination are like game of cards. The hand that is dealt you is determination. The way you play your hand is free will. Will power is our decision to use higher-mind thinking instead of lazing around in the clutches of our preanal mind. To arrest your willpower is simply to make up your mind that you want something and then refusing to be put off. In short, will power enables you to want and hold to that thought. It is with strong willpower that many action dreams come true. Nothing can withstand the power of human will if it is willing to stake its very existence to the extent, its purpose. It is said they can conquer who believes these can remember. Great souls have wills and feeble ones have wishes. Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except with your permission. Bharat Forge, Pune.
