"Most people live, whether
physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted
circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small
portion of their possible consciousness -- much like a man, who,
out of his whole bodily organism, should get into the habit of
using and moving only his little finger

Development of Will Power is
Everyone should develop Will Power. Whether
you're the top executive of a company or a clerk; a student or a
professor; man or woman; child or adult doesn't matter. You need

Thus self-development is everybody's
business. Whether we know or not, we are expressing ourselves
through all our deeds/activities and thoughts. You cannot
separate it from your activities.
Today self-development has increased in
importance because of the following main reasons:
- the competition has increased and one
requires to use his full potentialities to survive
- one needs his unique specialties to
keep an advantage or for competence

Will Power - The First Step to
must have faith in yourself and in your powers. This
faith is developed by overcoming obstacles cultivating
'will power', 'exercising' your will. You must learn to
overcome the sordid heritage of olden days in yourself
and outside you. Even a trifling victory over yourself
makes you much stronger." Maxim Gorky
Importance Of Will POWER
Will power is that makes all and
every endeavor one undertakes an instant success. The
mind that is weak or fluctuating cannot reach the goal at
all. So it is important that all of us who want to be
successful in our respective fields should strengthen our
will power. Again, if one does not have a strong will
power, others who understand this would try to exploit it
to their own advantage. Those who do not have a good will
power fall prey to drugs, alcohol, terrorism etc because
of the influence of those who have greater will power. In
short, will power is not only important for making one a
success but to maintain one's character and integrity as
well. Strong will power is required to keep oneself away
from illegal/unethical activities or to respond against
such activities. Thus it is necessary that all of us
should improve our will power.
Note: You should not
mistake obstinacy for will power. Will power is a
manifestation of your integrity and self-development
whereas obstinacy is a manifestation of your weakness.
How To Develop Your Will
All will power is not conscious. In
other words, will power is both conscious and
unconscious. We can improve conscious will power easily.
To develop your will power, you should develop those skills
and attitudes that are conducive to the
development of will and at the same time remove those
blockages and negative parameters that hinder the
development of your will.
PART 2 - TECHNIQUES
Believe You Can
If you believe you can, you can.
So believe you can do what you
want. Believe you can achieve what you want. Believe you
can become a successful person.
YES! You are actually a successful
person. What is needed to make it a reality is to believe
in yourself and work for it. So tell yourself that you
can achieve what you want, can do what you want, and can
become immensely successful.
Believe in yourself.
Believe in your ability to
become a successful and happy.
The power of Auto Suggestion is
tremendous. All of us use it knowingly or unknowingly. If
you can use it knowingly, you can work wonders.
By suggesting to yourself that you
can achieve what you want you really can achieve that.
Here are some statements you can
suggest to yourself :
I can do this and I will do this.
I am OK and I will stay OK

statements and say it to yourself.

HOW TO OVERCOME YOUR FEARS
There are two steps in overcoming
fears. First step is to understand the nature and
characteristics of fear in general and your own fears in
particular. Fear is of course a state of mind, but it is
also an instinct. So, to some extend, we need fear for
our own existence. When your fear crosses that limit, you
become ineffective and inefficient.
The second step is to encounter
your fears. Paradoxically, the most practical method to
overcome your fears is to actually encounter with what
you fear. This is again done in two steps - encountering
the fear situation mentally (i.e, in imagination) and
encountering it in real life situation.
Once such an encounter is made
safely, you automatically begin to transfer the effect to
at least some similar fears.

HOW TO OVERCOME YOUR LAZINESS
Actually you are not lazy at all.
You know that you have been very enthusiastic about at
least one or two things. Say, in watching films or
Cricket match, Collecting stamps, reading books you like
and so on. So actually no one is lazy(provided one has
got psychotic disorder).
The main reasons for laziness are:
- You are not interested in
the work or the work is boring
- The work is not well defined or
meaningful to you
- The outcome of the work or the
benefits that it may bring to you are not so clear to you
- You are a perfectionist or you fear
criticism by others on your work.
Some tips to overcome laziness:
Love your work.
Take interest in your work. This is
actually a difficult task to many.
But it is actually easy
