Will Power: Learning to Focus for Success

By Glenn Cutforth

Developing your will-power is directly related to your success in life. No one can over-estimate the power of your will to do.

Most people do not fail because of a lack of education. History is filled with uneducated or poorly educated millionaires who didn't let this supposed shortcoming hold them back. On the contrary, what they may have lacked in education was obliterated by their overpowering will to succeed no matter how many times they failed along the way.

It is the lack of determination and concentrated will-power that is the true reason most people fail. Just as an athlete trains for a physical game that takes concentrated effort to accomplish, the mind must also be trained with the proper skills to win in life.

The process of obtaining this self-mastery - the complete command of your mind's powers - is a gradual one. It involves determination and the daily task of making it a habit. Once you have self-mastery, the cost of obtaining it will bring a real sense of accomplishment and a realization how minimal the cost really was in the long run.

You don't need to be a genius to succeed - just make yourself do the thing you have to do when it has to be done, whether you like it or not. It's one of the best lessons you can learn!

In "The Power of Concentration" Theron Q. Dumont makes a powerful statement when he says, "Do not expect that you will always have easy sailing. Parts of your journey are likely to be rough. Don't let the rough places put you out of commission. Keep on with the journey. Just the way you weather the storm shows what material you are made of. Do not let a setback stop you. Think of it as a mere incident that has to be overcome before you can reach your goal."

When Henry Ward Beecher was asked how he could accomplish so much more than others, he replied, "I don't do more, but less than other people. They do all their work three times. Once in anticipation, once in actuality, and once in rumination. I do mine in actuality alone, so I end up doing things just once."

Beecher could concentrate his mind on what he was doing at a given moment. Then he"d go to something else and concentrate on it. One of the secrets of a successful life is to be able to focus all our energies on one thing at a time.

Don't waste your time worrying as it only crowds your thoughts with worthless clutter. Focus on what you're doing while you're doing it, and stop worry before it stops you. Worry is an energy zapper. It reduces your chances of success and it can make life just as miserable for those around you.

Learning to focus your efforts is the only way you will achieve the success you're capable of. The earlier in life you learn this simple fact, the more likely you will overcome everything that slows you down and prevents you from true success in everything you do.

Here's a recipe for a wasted life - just go about every day trying to do too many things at once. Splitting yourself up into a hundred parts leads to nowhere.

The old saying in real estate is: Location, Location, Location.

In life, it very well could be: Focus, Focus, Focus.

Some people like to juggle a number of tasks. Some people are even good at it. But most of us need to concentrate our efforts on one task at a time in order to reach our goals. It's not the amount of work you do in an hour or a day or even a year, but it's your persistence in constantly moving forward that will get you where you want to go.

Keep at it! And remember "

Focus, Focus, Focus.
