Daily Dose of Coach #256: Strength of Will

This past weekend re-watched one of my favorite movies, the Revenant.

It is a survival story. The plot take's place in the 1800's. It is about a man who works a guide for a fur trading group. A Grizzly bear attacks him, and he's left for dead. With a fierce tribe of Indians pursuing, watching his son get murdered, and almost being buried alive, he perseveres with nothing but his human will.

As I watched the movie, I couldn't help but think about how strong our commitments can be when we decide to execute. Hugh Glass, played by Leonardo Dicaprio, was driven not just by survival, but to avenge the murder of his son.

Though most of us are not living with these types of circumstances, it does testify to the strength of the human will.

You have more in the tank than you know. A lot of times we fail and give up. Sometimes we think we are stretching our will when we fail two or three times and then finally give up.

The truth is, failures and difficulties are like a filter. They separate and weed out the uncommitted.

If you want something, you have everything you need to get it. You must be clear about what you want to achieve. And you must impose an undying will to go and get it.

Hope you all have a great Monday! Stay committed. Impose your will.
