The power of ‘will’ is not unknown to any of us. Either we have experienced it ourselves or have heard loads of stories about the will power magic.
I always feel surprised to know that it really works-yes even if I’ve experienced it on my own. It’s all in mind after all and we have to push ourselves to come to ‘that’ point where in we feel confident and say ‘we can do it’.
There is a theory in psychology which is called as ‘Auto Suggestion’. It works on you in a very simple manner like telling yourself that ‘this is possible and you’ll do it’. [That’s the best I could put it in lay man’s language].
Like for example if you want to get up early than your daily routine say around 4 am and if it’s going to be a difficult task without the alarm/s and other’s help try ‘auto-suggesting’ ,with concentration, yourself before sleeping-that you gotta get up at 4 am tomorrow and see the magic. Without any alarms ringing you’ll find that you’re awake. [I’m sure many of you must have gone through this already…nothing new in this but for the name of the theory, right?]
But if this is so simple and known to everyone why can’t everyone do what they please to do or wish to do with their lives or targets or whatever? Are there questions in mind?
There is a reason behind it. This is not all. Even if you’re able to open up your eyes at the desired time what’s important is you get up and are out of the bed which is the actual desired outcome of the whole exercise, right? So there lies the gap between opening eyes and getting up. How does one bridge this gap? Yes you’re right. Will power comes into the picture here. It’s the will power within that makes us take that one required step towards achieving the goal.
So this is the gap which makes each one of us lose or win in the exercise of using the will power that all of us have within. That one push separates us from each other.
So next time you think that certain task in impossible try auto-suggesting yourself and use your will power to the fullest..oh and when it works do remember me 😉
