Willpower Book Review

By Therealsupermum @TheRealSupermum

I was very eager to read the new Willpower book by Roy F Baumeister and John Tierney as it sure sounded a rather positive 052 252x300 Willpower Book Review

It has not failed me

The book looks at why self-control is the secret to your own success and that does not mean you have to be the boss of a multimillion pound company, your success could come from having a happy family, financial security or good health. We all define success different.

Based on years of psychological research this book will show you how self-control is the most important factor in achieving your success.

Willpower is something I personally struggle with, it’s so easy to just quit and give in so this book has been an eye opener.

Its rather an addictive book and once you start reading it you want to read more

Is Willpower more than a metaphor?

Where does the power in willpower come from?

A brief history of the to-do list

Decision Fatigue

Where have all the dollars gone?

Can willpower be strengthened?

Outsmarting yourself in the heart of darkness

Did a higher power help Eric Clapton and Mary Karr?

Raising Strong Children: Self Esteem vs Self-Control

The Perfect Storm of Dieting

And many more chapters …..

I never would have thought that willpower was taught but this book will do just that, teach you how to change the way you think.

If you’re in need of learning some self-control then this book is defiantly for you.
