THE POWER OF FREE WILL IN LEADING YOU TO A SUCCESSFUL LIFE

The Power of Free Will in Leading You to a Successful Life

There’s almost no greater power available to us than the power of free will. It’s our free will that allows us to choose the direction of our lives, and it’s an equally powerful tool to get what we want from life.

The power of free will always give us the choice to decide. Maybe you could almost say that we have the power to decide our fate. Of course, it might be sometimes difficult to avoid accidents that occasionally happen in life. But in general terms, our free will allows us to create opportunities for ourselves and then capitalise on them when they arrive.

HOW TO USE THE POWER OF FREE WILL TO REACH SUCCESS

YOU CONTROL WHAT YOU DO

I executed the power of free will when I chose to sit down and write this article. Although I could’ve gone for a swim, cooked something to eat, done the laundry (well maybe not) or made the decision to do just about anything with this particular block of time, I’m now using it to write the article.

What I’m getting at is you always have the choice to implement the power of free will as you see fit, unless you’re in jail or hospital then your options are limited. Yet, you still have a measure of control over how you use your free will in your free time.

YOU MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES

Successful people know how to use the power of free will to achieve their goals in life and acquire what they need or want to make them happy. Lazy people may decide to use that same power of free will to watch TV or waste their valuable time following meaningless pursuits that usually have them running around in circles without moving forward with their lives.

Some individuals apply the power of free will to use drugs and alcohol. But just as they used their free will to start using, they can turn things around with that same power of free will whenever they choose.

Pessimistic or angry people use free will to complain that life isn’t fair. They end up spending their valuable time feeling sorry for themselves. However, free will is like magic. You can choose to wave your magic wand of free will in the twinkling of an eye, make different choices and move towards what you want and away from what you no longer wish to do.

YOU CHOOSE WHERE YOUR LIFE IS HEADED

I have had some ups and downs in my life I guess like most people. It was because of the downs I experienced in life that I decided I needed to make some changes and became interested in personal development. I think if everything was always okay and I never made any mistakes or stupid choices, I’d never have had any reason to get involved with personal development.

However, I’m glad I did experience the downers since they forced me to use it to move in a new direction. Since I started reading books on the power of the mind especially, my life has become so much happier than I could ever have wished for. Although I could be back where I was years ago if I had not decided to use the power of free will constructively.

YOU DECIDE TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES

You can implement the power of free will at any moment and move in the direction of your dreams and away from fear and pain. But no one can make that decision but you and you alone.

You can get to the top of the world, literally, if you choose to. I recently read that a blind person climbed to the top of Mount Everest and returned to tell the story. This is about as good of an advertisement for the vast power of free will as you’ll ever get.

That person could have easily chosen to sit back and do nothing but feel sorry for himself. I doubt anyone would blame him. Instead, he made the decision to undertake one of the most dangerous quests anyone could ever choose to do even without sight and conquer that mighty mountain.

So, the next time you decide to sit down in front of the TV and wish you had the resources to go travelling, buy a new car or eat at a restaurant that does not have a drive-thru, remember you can have any of these things and much more through the same power of free will. We all have the ability to use it as we please. It’s always your choice.

When you put together the sum total of my 30 years of bodybuilding training, the contests, the vast array of diets I have experimented (tortured) myself with as well as the experiences I have been through with various training partners in the gyms I have trained in all over the world, it’s been a great ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do lots of personal training for private clients alongside my day job. For a few years during my 30’s, I moved to Asia and worked as the Fitness Manager and head personal trainer at one of Thailand’s leading gyms in Bangkok. Learn More
