Willpower is the outgrowth of definiteness of purpose expressed through persistent action, based on personal initiative. By The Napoleon Hill Foundation
Envious people sometimes attribute success primarily to luck. Nothing could be more wrong. As coach Darryl Royal once observed, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” Success occurs when you have a definite purpose for your life and you take the initiative to follow through with action. You may make mistakes occasionally -- everyone does -- but any action is far better than doing nothing.
