Willpower...Do you have it?

The New Year usually brings change. We all have good intentions about how we will change our lives for the better. And we DO give it the old college try!

But not surprisingly, many of us revert back to our olds ways within a short period of time. Why? I'm not sure...YET! This year I want to find out why I don't have the willpower to do what I need to do in some areas of my life.

So?? I've been reading LOTS of books and articles on the subject. Today I was reading one in the January 2008 issue of the Oprah Magazine called, "The Willpower Myth". A writer by the name of Stephanie Losee gives us a glimpse into a book by Alan Deutschman where he discusses the framework to successfully change yourself.

Read an excerpt of the book here.

You'll have to buy the magazine to read Stephanie's article...there's no online version of it. The article is a GREAT precursor to the book which I'm on my way to buy right now...

Toodles!
