To the lessons in 'Power of Will' more than any other thing do I owe this sudden rise." These are the exact words of an owner of "Power of Will." His name is not published for obvious reasons, but will be gladly given in confidence on request. As remarkable as is his experience it might also be called typical of what this wonderful course,in W ill Training is doing for thousands of men and women in every walk of life who are using "Power of Will" as the stepping stone to greater accomplishment. What is "Will Power"? The Will is the motive power of the brain. Without a highly trained, inflexible will, a man has about as much chance of obtaining success in life as a railway engine has of crossing the continent without steam. The biggest ideas have no value without Will Power to "put them over." Yet the Will, hitherto entirely neglected, can be trained into wonderful power, like the brain or memory and by the very same method, by intelligent exercise and use. If you held your arm in a sling for two years, it would become powerless to lift a feather, from lack of use. The same is true of the will-it becomes useless from lack of practice. Because we don't use our wills, because we continually bow to cir cumstance,we become unable to assert ourselves. What our wills need is practice. "Power of Will" by FRANK CHANNING HADDOCK, Ph. D., a scientist whose name ranks with such leaders of thought as James, Bergson, and Royce, is the first thorough course in Will Power ever conceived. It is the result of over 20 years of research and study. Yet you will find every page in the 28 lessons written so simply that anyone can understand them and put the principles, methods and rules into practice at once with noticeable results right from the very start.
