A Man’s Power of Will

By gender, a man’s approach to life is, “I will, therefore it’s done.”

Todd Beal

The saying, when there’s a will there’s a way, is in one way or another every man’s core motto.  Every man uses his will to assert himself into life, to make his mark.  Some men have a weak will, others have a strong will, but strong or weak every man has a burning desire to strengthen it, build it, and use it in the most powerful way possible.  This will is what drives men to become champions: whether they are writing a book, building a computer program, building a muscle car, going for the gold at the world Olympics, or designing clothes.  Whatever a man does, his will gets him there, driving him to push the boundaries and be the best he can possibly be.

The human will is a powerful tool whether we use it for constructive or destructive purposes and a man spends his entire lifetime learning how to direct it properly.  Some men are naturally more in tune with their will and can use it quite readily yet lack the wisdom to direct it constructively.  Other men are not so in tune with their will, or it is naturally weak, but with maturity and wisdom hone their mind and senses to wisely direct and strengthen it.  Whatever the case, the mind and will that work together through maturity and wisdom allows a man to see his goal, know in his heart that he will accomplish it, and resolve to make it happen whatever the sacrifice, including himself, to follow it through.

About Todd Beal

I love truth and its facts. I love thought-provoking conversations that give both the other person and me a better understanding of a particular topic. I love to find answers to life-long questions; answers that let me see things for what they are instead of what they seem to be. I truly enjoy being in the midst of a group of people where all individuals are joining in, where everybody is enjoying the company of each other. I relax in the company of individuals who are competent yet humble. I like to catch myself doing or saying something ridiculous and then laugh my head off. I enjoy my church and being involved.

    Isn’t it a distinct possibility that will only has destructive applications, and that the very definition of ‘ego’ is the ability to draw this line where some of will’s actions end up on the good side of the ledger?

      Thank you for your comment.

      The human will is not intrinsically destructive or constructive; it is the power to assert oneself in part or in whole. The heart is where all intent originates. If that intent is destructive, the will carries out destruction. If that intent is constructive, the will carries out life-building thoughts, words, feelings and action. Our tools (including the will) are just tools, and the state of our heart determines what we do with them.

      Without your will, you would never will yourself to do anything (thought included): you would not assert yourself in a debate; you would not strive to achieve; you would not strive to please your mate – you would possess no drive to propel yourself in any direction. You would quite literally lose your ability to live.

      A person who loses their will to live, dies. Among the elderly, it is common for one spouse to lose his or her will to live and soon die after the other passes. Many cancer patients and accident victims defy incredible, and seemingly impossible, odds because of their will to live. This same phenomenon fills our history books and news articles regarding soldiers in battle. Despite being mortally wounded while in the midst of a hail of gunfire, these individuals not only stay alive, but continually return to where their comrades have fallen and carry them to safety. They do this not because their ego, in one way or another, wisely directs them, but because their heart will not let their will do otherwise.

      With a wisely directed will, we positively engage life and the people that live within it, providing one’s heart is in the right place.
