A New Revised Edition of the Book Strengthen Your Willpower and Self Discipline
The chapters have been rearranged and some of them rewritten. Some of the exercises were also rewritten, and new ones added. I have written this book about ten years ago, and it is still very popular today. I believe it will be even more successful now, after being newly revised. It teaches the evergreen subjects, willpower and self-discipline.
These skills have always been important skills, and will always be so. The book explains and teaches in plain English, what are willpower and self-discipline, what are their benefits, and how to strengthen them. It offers a training program, which anyone can learn, follow and practice, and offers various simple, but powerful exercises. The exercises have now been grouped under various topics, such as assertiveness, patience, persistence, overcoming inner resistance and others.
Willpower and self-discipline are essential tools for success in all areas of life, and are two of the most important skills everyone should possess. Their presence or absence is often the factor that leads to success or to failure, to taking action or avoiding it. This applies to major goals, and also to simple, everyday tasks. This book is a practical manual, offering special techniques and exercises. Most of the exercises take advantage of common, everyday situations and activities, making it unnecessary to set apart special times for practice.
This means you can practice the exercises at any time or place.
