OM, Purnamata purnamitam purnat purnamutachyate, purnasya purnamataye purnamevavasishyate – Bri.Up V.i.1



What is will power? In my view it is ‘confidence and determination’.  In what else way can we define it?  Can there be any obstacles for will power?   Definitely ‘NO’.  Will power is a unique energy, which breaks the obstacles.  Obstacles and hurdles on the path can change the direction, but not the goal.  Strong and repeated thinking about the goal, will pave way to reach the goal.  We are surrounded by thought waves.  When our thoughts are about the goal, that energy from us will explore the way to achieve the same.  Trying hard to reach the goal without caring for any obstacles paves way to success.  Determination is very important.  We should always remember our goal and think of the possible positive ways to reach it.  Obstacles and failures should be taken in a positive way, because it guides one to choose the correct path.  Repeated thinking of failures and obstacles will definitely divert us from achieving the goal.  Even under adverse circumstances, we have to think about the goal strongly.  The paths towards any goal are many.  It is only our intelligence and circumstances that help us to select the correct path.  When we take our effort, sometimes we will be criticised in a negative or sarcastic way.  This has to be ignored by keeping the goal in mind. A matured mind will not respond to negative criticisms.  Any goal is reached by a positive brave mind, which is not scared of obstacles and failures. Shear will power helps to achieve the goal. Because will power comes from the ultimate source. A strong mind can realise it, weak mind cannot realise or use this power.
