I’d like to share with you why you should NOT rely on your will power to help you achieve your dreams. Instead, you should rely on what I’m about to reveal to you.
I know things are tough theses days. There are many people who are not happy at with their current situation. So, if you’re Not happy with the way things are for you, this may be what you need right now. Even if you are happy, you still need to hear this. It’s that important.
Okay, let’s see if you can help me finish this sentence, “where there’s a WILL there’s a way”, right? But, it’s not really accurate. Do you think will power alone can get you what you want out of life? No! That’s what I believed for a longtime.
Let me tell you this; will power has nothing to do with it. In fact, when you apply what I’m about to share with you, you don’t have to find will power. It will find you.
Before you start doubting me, I want to prove to you that will power is kind of like a myth. I say a myth because most people don’t really understand it. Let’s see why I think will power is not what you need the most to get what you want.
Years ago, I met a guy by the name of Bill who was a heavy smoker. As a result, he had Emphysema. He carried a tank full of oxygen to help him breathe. His doctor gave him one year to live. And guess what? Bill was still smoking.
He’s what he told me, “It’s been twenty years since I have trying to quit smoking. I just can’t.” He then pointed a lighted cigarette at me and said, “This is a small thing. I’m a big man. But it’s been controlling my life.”
Shortly after I met Bill, he died. Now, it’s obvious Bill had a lot of will power. He was willing. He tried. But, he couldn’t.
There are so many people with habits that are destroying them. They have will power. They really want to quit. But they can’t. That is proof will power is NOT the answer.
Perhaps you’ve been trying to quit doing something. You’re probably using a lot of will power. But it’s not working out. As soon as you start making headway, you get right bad to the old habit.
Listen, you can’t force something with will power. It’s like trying to remember somebody’s name in a conversation. The more you try, the more you forget. Then a few minutes later after you walk away. Bam! You remember, right? That’s my point.
Really, how long have you been trying to succeed with a lot of will power? How is that working for you? Okay, you may be saying, “if will power isn’t it, what is it?” I’m glad you ask.
The answer is one word: Imagination. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Let me put it this way: It’s not what you know. It’s what you vividly imagine & visualize.
Some people refer to imagination as your subconscious mind. I agree. You see, your conscious mind cannot allow you to live the dream before you achieve it. It takes the work of your imagination.
All the will power in the world cannot help you realize your dream until you can vividly imagine it, see it, and feel it.
Now most people use their imagination in reverse. They imagine it’s not possible. They live their fears instead of their dreams. Anything that is imagined consistently is guaranteed to come to pass. And that includes your fears. Let me wrap this up with a quick story.
Walt Disney never got to see the grand opening of his amusement park, Disney World. He passed away.
On the day they were cutting the ribbon, a friend of the family went to Walt’s brother, Roy, and told him, “Wow! It’s too bad Walt is not here to see this.” Roy said, “It’s not too bad. We can see it today because my brother saw it before it was built.”
Question for you: How much do you imagine that which you want? Can you vividly see, feel, and touch it? If you can’t, it’s an impossible dream.
The journey to success cannot lead you to a place you’ve not seen in your imagination first. The more you use your imagination, the faster you can achiever your dreams!
Later, I will share with you some powerful ideas to help you use your imagination in a way that serves you extremely well.
For now, I dare you to truly visualize and imagine that which you want. It works!
Remember this: Change is a gift and attitude is a choice!
