Amber and I recently went to see a ‘documentary’ at the movie theater about the power that one’s will can exert. Someone with a strong will can overcome any obstacle put in their way. They can overcome external forces and internal ones, emotions and feelings like fear.
But you don’t have to go see Green Lantern (but you should) to discover that Will is a formidable power that each of us possess, but only a few put to good use on a regular basis.
I know a few people that have put their effort to good use in achieving goals and working toward things that are important to them. But will is not just about achieving things, it can be about putting your energies toward being committed to something even if it is difficult to do. Holding back wild emotions when someone lashes out at you. Persevering when things don’t go your way is another example.
I’m so glad to be surrounded by people that are able and capable of putting their will and effort to good use in a wide variety of endeavours.
