2. Will it Ever Change? A study of decision

The road to success in anything is paved with the tiles, of all the things one is un-willing to do to get there. 

Many might say, “It can’t be that simple?”. I’m sorry. It is. If you boil down every goal we have and work in reverse, from what it would take to get to the next rung on that success ladder, one will always divide and divide until they reach a task that hasn't been done. A place they can't seem to get past. Furthermore, this inertia is not the cause of lack of resources or money or any other external stimuli. The square root of it comes down to something we haven’t done, because we have been unwilling.

Will. What a powerful force it is. One of my all-time favorite movies, "The Usual Suspects" is a dark dramatic mystery movie with five robust characters. Imagine the screen time it takes to develop 5 characters in 2 hours and have one them leave an impression on you forever... Kaiser Soseh. For those who have seen the movie, you shudder at the mention of his name. Kaiser Soseh.

In this film their is a conversation where they discuss power and this character breaks all the myths of what true power is and boils it down to - the will to do what the other man will not. Scary. but it can also be beautiful. As with all power, it is how one uses it that determines one's fabric. Power is all together another topic, but an element of power is will. In some these movie examples, the sheer impression left by the scene is a greater lesson than my words.
 We cannot discuss will without discussing our illusions, our beliefs, and our examination of is possible, or better yet, what we believe is possible. 

That’s why we ask the following questions in this manner:

What WILL you do?
What WILL you do?
WILL you crumble?
WILL you get up?

WILL is the determinant root, of any level of success and/or personal change.

The road to success in anything is paved with the tiles, of all the things one is un-willing to do to get there. When asking ourselves, "Will it EVER Change?", our self should reply, "I don't know, will it?". The decision to make it happen; is in and of itself victory, if there is a powerful will (ie. will-power) to enforce it.

Inside the root of making any change is a mere decision.
