Book Description

3 July 2003

You already have willpower. Everyone does. All you need is to learn how to use it. With just a little practice, willpower can work even when you don't feel inspired, when you are faced with your strongest temptations. And the wonderful news is that willpower isn't something that gets handed out to some and not others. It's simply a matter of understanding how to access it and unlock its potential. When you do you'll see just how liberating, exciting and rewarding using willpower can be. Very soon, rather than being your own worst enemy, you'll become your own best friend.

Use the brilliant strategies in this book to:

- overcome addictive behaviours

- quit smoking

- take control of overeating

- achieve your dreams

- enhance your life

With a little belief, some confidence and the techniques laid out in this revolutionary book, you'll soon discover just how strong your willpower can be.

This book can actually be summed up in a couple of sentences: Willpowercomes from recognising you have a choice. A choice to stop doing but moreimportantly - a choice to do. And this is the crux of the matter - toomany of us say "Oh, I can't do this and I must not do that.'
Truewillpower comes from saying: "I could do that IF I WANTED TO" but I choosenot to. There is real peace in realising that just because I want to stopdoing something does not necessarily mean I am denied it. Otherwise thelaw of rebellion comes in - the more I CAN'T have it, the more I wantit!
If there were a downside to this book for me it would be that the authorfocuses on the obvious habits to give up - smoking, overeating and so on.There are many more habits than that! But she has done us all a realservice in identifying some of the possible components of willpower, andas usual the most useful information (above) is often the mostparadoxical. Although not Eastern wisdom the principles remind me of suchstatements as:
"Give it up to get it back" and "non-attachment"
I do reccomend this book although if you want a more cognative approach tothinking about willpower I would go for something like The Secrets ofPersonal Mastery by Michael Hall.
All the best

5.0 out of 5 stars Willpower Clearly Explained 17 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
Once again, as with all Gillian's books, this is a masterpiece in clear, easy to understand explanation. The reader will leave the book in no doubt about what willpower means, how it affects their lives and what to do to help improve it. The science and research are clearly explained but easy to understand. I was fascinated to realise just how much of our lives is influenced by our ability (or lack of ability) to exercise willpower. Gillian often refers to willpower as 'freewill' which I feel is not only a kinder word but a good description in itself of what we are dealing with.

Most books quite readily tell you 'why' but seldom tell you 'how' - Gillian's books are always the complete package, and once read, you are equipped with the knowledge and confidence to tackle problem areas yourself. Highly recommended.
