Four Steps To Develop A Gigantic Will – For Success In Life

Four important steps to success in life begins with a gigantic will.
  1. Clarify and make a commitment to the purpose
  2. Convert your thoughts into action
  3. Remove all distraction
  4. Be relentless in the pursuit of your goal
Clarify and make a commitment to the purpose
Have you got the will to surmount mountain-high obstructions? If the whole world stands against you sword in hand, would you still dare to do what you think is right? (Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: III: 226)

Convert your thoughts into action
…saying, “I can”, won’t do. Show me through action what you can do, and then only I shall know that your coming to me is turned to some good account. Get up, and put your shoulders to the wheel... (Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: V: 383)

Remove all distraction
Practice hard; whether you live or die does not matter. You have to plunge in and work, without thinking of the result. (Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: I: 178)

Be relentless in the pursuit of your goal
To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. “I will drink the ocean,” says the persevering soul, “at my will mountains will crumble up.” Have that sort of energy, that sort of will, work hard, and you will reach the goal. (Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: I: 178)
