    Do you believe in willpower?

    Some of us believe in paving your future path, and some believe despite of your hard work, it is your luck that decides everything. And some believes that you need to have a strong will force to make things happen. How do you feel?

    Some have good luck when comes to paving their future. While others require lots of willpower to persist in order to achieve. It is sometimes requires great strength to endure your pathway to good future. It does help to make your success whereas those who gave up will be left out.

    I believe in willpower but I believe it's not your only factor at work in paving your future.  I believe in fate and hard work and with a little luck and a prayer or two that if you push yourself and stay focused on what you seek then you will find it.   Think yourself happy and so it will be.  It even said that in the bible (maybe not exact words) and I believe your willpower and the person you thrive to be plays importantly for what you will get out of life.  If you always tell yourself your a failure and never push yourself to go forward then you will never get there unless fate smiles upon you and you get lucky but if your willpower is gone then how can you raise up and seize this opportunity?  Think yourself happy, think yourself thin, think yourself in that job your working your butt off for.  Not everything comes to you but those you don't try will never know for sure, must have the will to carry on or every downfall will keep you down.

    It is not about believing in will power it is about believing in yourself. It is believing that you are the author of your life. People who believe in luck may be just finding an excuse not to put in their best. I believe it is the difference between existing and living... read on for more on will power and how to develop it.

    Yes, I do. Will power is the force, which makes you initiate something.. Once you step-up on the track, luck make it's own way...

    Yes, I believe in willpower, you must have it to conquer!

    Will= to live and breathe and acheive what you will

    Power=the conscious effect to see things through to the final closure

    I think willpower is very important, but action must go along with it, otherwise willpower alone it's no use.

    I think that what some people call "luck" is really the confluence of preparation and opportunity.....

    What do you mean "believe in willpower"?  How can you not believe in it?  Some people have a little and some have a lot.  Somethings can be accomplished by willpower and some cannot.  There is a power beyond "willpower," but it is important to understand willpower and how it works.  Maybe you would enjoy a book I just discovered called THE WILLPOWER INSTINCT by Kelly McGonnigal.

    I believe in willpower as well as fate.  I think that it is impossible to accomplish any great feat with out the help of others.  Many people say "I did this and that" , but sometime I think that there is a bigger picture that they are not seeing. 

    First to have faith in oneself that has to be nurtured from young, so if you had good parents one should always thank them.  Second, there is always influences in one's life as long as one interacts with others, so if you have good friends you should remember them and be grateful.  Also know when to leave bad company.

    Third there must have been those who have passed on knowledge and supported one's effort to make what ever great feat that is accomplished successful. 

    I have accomplished many great things in my life as well as made some stupid mistakes, but I am always looking at the big picture knowing that it is not my will alone.  It is not all luck of all fate, it is a combination of many factors.

    All I am saying is yes there is willpower, but remember the big picture.

    Best wishes.
