William Walker Atkinson compiled a few great quotes about the Will:
“Disraeli, who not only wrote of Will but also manifested it fully, once said:
“I have brought myself by long meditation to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a Will which will stake even existence upon its fulfillment.”
Simpson said: “A passionate Desire and an unwearied Will can perform impossibilities, or what may seem to be such to the cold and feeble.”
Foster says: “It is wonderful how even the casualties of life seem to bow to a spirit that will not bow to them; and yield to subserve a design which they may, in their first apparent tendency, threaten to frustrate. When a firm, decisive spirit is recognized, it is curious to see how the space clears around a man and leaves him room and freedom.”
Foster here uses the word “spirit” in the same sense as others use the word “Will.” Substitute Will for spirit, and re-read the sentence, and you will see the point.
This quality was one possessed and appreciated by Napoleon, one of whose favorite sayings was: “The truest wisdom is a resolute determination.” It was a marked characteristic of this man, and it showed forth in many of his utterances. He fixed his mind and attention upon the desired goal, and then went straight to his mark. When told that the Alps were unsurmountable obstacles to the passage of his armies, he replied, “There shall be no Alps,”—and he proceeded to make good his words. “Impossible,” said he, “is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools.”
The Will is indeed one of the most powerful skills you can develop. It’s the skill that increases the power of any other magnetic skill. It’s a strong booster and dynamic influence over yourself and others.
It’s finally time to have a full training dedicated solely to your Will.
