Where there is a Will there is a Way

Hello, Young Minds,

What is willpower? Where from it comes and what can be done with strong willpower. Will Power, in brief, is to have a strong will to achieve an objectively good or bad. When there is strong will power then all the internal and external forces work in one and only one direction to achieve the objective. Today, you just think that I will strive hard to fulfill an uphill task. You will start thinking and all your thoughts get converted into actions to fulfill the difficult uphill task. Even doctors accept the role of willpower when they say he or she has no will to live and sooner or later the disease takes over such an individual. But if you have strong willpower, which comes from within yourself, then you can defeat even all the odds. At the age of 25, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with cancer in 1996 and now he is a father, cancer survivor, advocate, and philanthropist. He not only fought the deadly disease with his strong will power he founded Lance Armstrong now known as LIVESTRONG foundation which has helped more than 2.5 million people through its Cancer Support Services. This is a rare case of strong willpower when people leave all hopes but Lance Armstrong not only lived with the disease but also made millions of cancer patients to fight by infusing willpower. We shall not be discussing the bad part of objectives achieved through strong willpower.

Tell your Kids,

Kids need to be nurtured in such a way that they acquire strong willpower and do not avoid difficult tasks. Kids should be taught to face the challenges head-on so as to succeed. In an avoiding attitude, the kids are likely to develop withdrawal symptoms due to fear of failure and lack of confidence and willpower, as where there is a will, there is a way. Here is an old story for the Kids, which I used to read in my primary classes during 1964 to 1968. Watch this Video and Read Story of a "Thirsty Crow".

It was a hot summer day in the month of June in one of the hottest deserts where water was already a scarce commodity. All rivers, pond, water taps, wells and even the disposable water sources had dried up. Birds were dying due to non-availability of water. A black crow was flying here and there in search of water but could not find even a drop of water anywhere. The crow neither lost the patience nor the willpower and the crow once again went flying in search of water and it could find a pitcher of water. His joy knew no bounds but when the crow reached the pitcher, he saw that it had a little water and that too was at a very low level at the bottom of the pitcher. His beak could not reach the water level to quench his thirst. But, where there is a will, there is a way. The crow found pebbles nearby. the Crow was very intelligent. He took the pebbles one by one and put in the pitcher. After about an hour's tireless job the pitcher got filled with pebbles and the water level came up and the crow could quench his thirst as the water level rose to the level where the crow's beak could sip the water. Crow saved his life with strong willpower. Tell your friends and share the story.

Moral of the Story
  1. In difficult situations, we should not lose heart as we can convert impossible tasks in possible.
  2. We should apply presence of mind under odd circumstances.
  3. We should not leave hope against hope and apply our mind to come out of difficult times.
