Will - use it to surpass yourself

People who inspire respect and admiration are always those who have struggled and fought to surpass themselves, who have overcome obstacles and hardships. Why, for instance, do people, and youth in particular, admire athletes so much? Because they are always trying to surpass themselves. Even if it is only a question of running, jumping, swimming or climbing, this taste for exertion, endurance and courage are always considered great qualities. So why not try to show these same qualities in everyday life? It is all very well to concentrate all your efforts on running and swimming faster or for longer, jumping higher, catching a ball better or kicking it further, but it is even more useful to say, ‘I shall be more patient when I am faced with problems, I shall overcome sadness, disappointment, and grief, I shall master my thoughts and feelings’. Indeed, in this too you can achieve feats and claim victories, and it is mostly to this end that you must apply your will.
