The Power of Will.

Not “will” as in a guy named William. I mean “will” as in sheer desire. As in, wanting something badly enough to make it happen. Or simply flipped: Willpower!

Jay Z and @Oprah speak a lot about speaking things into existence. Visualizing things into existence. About wanting something so badly, that you can taste & feel it, and that dream then lives in the fibres of your very being. That this energy helps create a whole manifestation.

What a concept… to actually first think it, dream it, wish it, work for it, and then EXPERIENCE it.

I believe that willpower, grit, tenacity, resilience, and desire are everything. They beat intelligence and high IQ tests everyday.

I’d like to leave you with one quote. And then ask you…

What do YOU imagine for yourself?
What do YOU dream of?
What do YOU wish for?
And what are YOU doing to make that dream a reality?

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” — William Arthur Ward (and funny that his name is Will)

Do you agree that wanting something badly enough gives you a head start?
