Inborn in every individual is a will to live. This will to live is based on love. It is your love for life that gives you the will to live.
You must cultivate your will to live. Your will to live is basic to your survival.
How do you cultivate a will to live? Simple. Just be aware of the rewards of living. Be aware that you love life.
Whenever you engage in an activity, remind yourself constantly of why you love that activity. When you do, you are cultivating your will to live.
Imagine the rewards of the activity coming to you in great abundance. Never lose the connection between an activity and the rewards of that activity.
Receive these rewards in your imagination a thousand times a day and you will have a strong will to live.
