The Power of Now
It's a process of understaning.
Has to be taken a chapter a week and maybe even listem twice to soak it in.
If you actually try these willpower challenges each week, you can definitely change yourself. Definitely recommend to anyone who is trying to change or just enjoys listening to how our minds work.
The book is well organized and presented in a way that is helpful towards thinking about will power differently. It offers several suggestions in each chapter allowing for people of a wide verity of backgrounds to find something they can use from each chapter.
