Recently Abhinandan has been the talk of the town. Imagine if he went on to save India from the Pakistani aircraft aimed at destroying us without his willpower? What if he didn’t have enough willpower to destroy the critical documents by swallowing them and trying to escape by running almost half a kilometre when one of his legs were shot, Isn’t that the perfect example of sheer willpower? Would he still be praised the way he is being praised today? The best power one must exercise is Willpower. Nothing shall amaze you more than this. If you imagine your life as a vehicle which takes you to your destination then willpower is nothing but the fuel. Rockets take off even in gravitational force but only when the acceleration is at a higher speed as compared to the gravitational pull.

There isn’t an individual in our entire history who has been successful without willpower. Any knowledge which a person possesses is a complete waste if he/she does not have the will to use it and to do something productive with it.

Take an example of any leader, be it Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, JK Rowling or Kalpana Chawla; a significant part of their success purely depended on their sheer willpower to execute their ideas. They are an epitome of what it takes to be successful with real willpower. No one believed in the idea of a phone which would have one single button which was visualized by Steve Jobs. Everyone ended up rejecting the idea but Steve Jobs was super packed with the will to change his idea into reality. Willpower makes things happen for a person. An individual should learn to create a way through will power even at his/her darkest times in life.

We see so many people who have fought severe diseases like cancer, paralysis, coma and won. If we are to analyze the common factor in order to understand what was inside those people who struggled with some of the most deadly diseases where many people give up living a normal and healthy life; then the prime difference is the will power. A person who has Will and a person who doesn’t lead a very different life. A person who has a beautiful road to reach his destination would never reach there if he does not have enough will, but a person with a maximum will power will reach his destination even if he does not have a path and will make sure he creates a road for that.

This is the fundamental difference between a person who has willpower and a person who doesn’t. Whatever you wish to achieve in your life or whatever you wish to become; can only be achieved if you have will; then you shall create your own path. If you don’t possess the will power to achieve your dreams, then despite having all the resources; you won’t be able to do any wonders in your life. So try and learn things that build and create the willpower in you.

I have been a Graphologist since my earlier days of practice and so I exactly know how handwriting creates an impact on our lives because it is the reflection of our mind, body and soul. The easiest way to build and strengthen your will is to start writing in your diary with heavy pressure. It shouldn’t be too heavy but a moderate-heavy pressure will do the trick. Heavy pressure shows the energy you possess and derive it to write. You should practice writing the goals which you want to achieve in life and the ways you are going to achieve them and write those down for 49 days straight without missing a single day. You may choose to write anything. If you aren’t living the life you dream then I can be certain that there is a lack of willpower which is required to reach where you want to be.

So start doing things which will enhance your willpower but then again; starting with this will require willpower. Begin with it right away as it is never too late. If you are an owner of a certain organization, then do some daily exercises which will increase the willpower of your employees. If you are a parent, then challenge your kids to raise their own willpower because if they develop the Will at a tender age, then the rest of the journey will be automatically be taken care by them.
