About this Item

CD in reddish brown case; 1 videodisc (180 min.): sound, color ; 4 3/4 in. In English. || Series: Great courses. Better living (Personal development); Abstract: "We've all said it to ourselves at one point or another: "If only I had more willpower, I could do the things I really want to do." Having the mental fortitude to reach your goals, whether they concern your job, your personal finances, your skills at a hobby, or even your waistline, seems forever unattainable. But here's the truth: Greater willpower and lasting success actually well within your reach. It all depends on an understanding of the science behind self-control. Long thought to be nothing but myth, the connection between your mind, your body, and your behaviors and emotions actually has powerful scientific evidence behind it. And once you've grasped the fundamentals of self-control and learned how to incorporate them into your personal life, you'll find yourself in possession of a powerful tool for: becoming more goal oriented ; thinking more positively and constructively ; avoiding the negative health effects of emotional baggage and common stressors ; beating back self-doubt, and facing the challenges of today and tomorrow with greater confidence in yourself." Contents: 1. Why is it so hard to do what we should?; 2. Self control successes and failures; 3. Marshmallows, monkeys, and mortality; 4. Taming the impulsive beast; 5. First impressions and sterotypes; 6. Romance, finance, and your environment. Fine, unsealed case with clean, scratch-free DVD; Bookseller Inventory # 85220
