My friend, Ben Hardy, wrote an amazing book called, “Willpower Doesn’t Work.” I don’t know about you, but the title certainly got my attention! I loved this book so much, I bought 200 copies to give away (before you ask, yes they are all gone, LOL).
The book covers a lot of scenarios from trying to lose weight, dealing with addictions, toxic relationships, as well as workplace situations.
Jeff’s Top 2 Willpower Takeaway’s:
- Clearly identify what you want to achieve (make a decision). If you don’t know what you want, how are you ever going to get it? Whether you want to lose weight, kick an addiction, get a promotion, or lead your team better – write it down, internalize it and focus on achieving it.
- Commit and create conditions in your environment to make it happen! The fact is “willpower” dissipates as the day progresses, so you need to acknowledge this fact and be prepared with a strategy to stay strong throughout the day. If you want to lose weight, get rid of all the junk food from your house. If you want to be a positive person, remove negative people from your life.
Ben is not only a great guy, but he’s also a great “personal growth” author, please check out his awesome articles on Medium.com .
