Many of us have been given a misunderstanding about the word “Will”. We think of willpower and we say “if I just had enough willpower”.
Often when we think of willpower we are going to try to make ourselves do something and we just push ourselves. Really, that is such a small amount of the strength we are capable of.
There was a little boy who was out for a walk with his dad. He walked up to a big rock and he looked at his dad and he said, “do you think I can move that rock?”
The dad said, “I think you can if you use all your power”.
The little boy moves up his shoulder and he presses on that rock hard, hard, hard and he can’t make it move. He tries and tries, but he can’t make it move.
Finally he says to his dad, “Dad you were wrong! I couldn’t make it move”.
The dad said, “you didn’t use all your power. You didn’t ask me for help”.
