and improve your willpower in seven easy steps! Written by a
clinical psychologist and cognitive therapist, the book proves that
willpower can be learned like any other skill, and provides tons of
practical exercises and strategies you can start using today.
You'll learn how willpower works inside the brain, and how choosing
goals and identifying challenges can affect your success. The book

short view. Controlling which aspect wins out is the key to
willpower. Willpower For Dummies breaks this complex science
