Step 4: Handling the will - the ability to make choices
Living with freedom of choice.

Dr. Vittoz commented that “the Will, or the ability to make choices, is akin to free-will, an intelligent energy that blossoms under certain conditions.”  It’s not a question of struggling or of tightening up.  It’s like volunteering.  Struggle actually diminishes the capacity to apply free-will in decision-making.  When tension is present, we’re required to deploy excessive energy to accomplish a task which may actually require very little.  The exercise of free-will permits us to break old habits and exercise our capacity to make decisions outside the confines of obligation or guilt.

The desired action (for example, “I’ll call my mother tomorrow”) or the decision to be made (“I’ll learn Spanish”) is first clarified by three questions :

Question No. 1:  “Have I clearly stated what I want to do?”
Question No. 2:  “Is what I want to do clearly within the realm of possibility ?”
Question No. 3:  “Is what I want to do really a sincere desire?  Is it what I really want to do? (or am I just mouthing the desire, without really wanting it wholeheartedly?)”

If the answer to all three questions is, “yes,” then the exercise of visualizing the act successfully accomplished produces a surprising and effective result.

Master athletes have employed this technique successfully for many years.
As a result of this exercise, folks experience first hand the energy of the free-will they already possess, and the calm and satisfaction that follow a clear-cut decision.
There are many Vittoz exercises which permit people to hone in on what they themselves would like to do and to make better decisions as a result. 

Too, the capacity to make calm, precise decisions with less energy improves self esteem and self confidence.  Folks discover that they can depend on their own judgment.  By practicing these exercises regularly and sincerely, they become increasingly responsible for their own thoughts and actions, and no longer blame others for their disappointments and failures.
