Contrary to what you’ve been told or what you might currently believe, there is no such thing as a “secret to success.” The success you desire is patiently waiting for you. It always has been. You don’t have to chase it. You don’t have to figure it out. It’s just sitting there, waiting for you to claim it.
There’s only one thing you need to know in order to reach out and grab it. The key that will unlock the door to whatever you desire is your ability to harness and direct your Will. It’s the only thing you need to climb to the very heights of life.
The human Will involves mysteries which you can’t even imagine. You can deny your spiritual nature, but you can’t question the existence of Will-Power. Numerous books have been written about its source, its constitution, its functions, its limitations and its freedom, but everyone can agree that the Will is an actual part of the mind.
The Will is sometimes defined as “a faculty of consciousness“, especially of deliberate action, but the word “consciousness” is not essential to the definition.
Some unconscious actions are expressions of the Will and some involuntary acts are conscious. All voluntary acts are deliberative and deliberation can proceed with swiftness, but deliberation is not always conscious.
A better definition of the Will is The Power of Self-Direction.
