Step 2. Okay, now really open your mind.
Step 3. Read this book.
Step 4. Change your environment for success.
Of course it’s not that simple, but damn it's a good start! Ben Hardy’s latest work, Willpower Doesn’t Work, is a powerful read that will help you build a better life for yourself. Starting with understanding what you really want in life, why you haven’t achieved those things yet, how to set up your environment to align with the life you desire, and the challenge/plan to make it happen.
This book can be a bit confronting if you’re not ready for it, but if you’re in it to get serious about changing your life for the better, add this one to your list.
Like seriously, add this sucker to your cart right now and check out.
I’ll wait for you to get back…
You there? Good. Okay while you wait for it to arrive in the mail, get excited for the gold you just purchased for a mere $20. What a steal! This read won’t do much for you though if you think you have it all figured out. And maybe you do! Are you living your dreams? If so… wait, why are you here reading this? I mean that’s cool, we are always evolving - good for you! Okay for the rest of us, if you are considering this book, that means you are ready to unstuck yourself from your current life and as Beyonce would say “let me upgrade you!”
My point is this. It’s easy to gloss over a few of these ideas and think you understand, but life is full of stuff like that. We become disengaged even when the answers are staring us in the face! So please do yourself a favor, read this from a place of curiosity and discover. These ideas are high level and Ben does a fantastic job of breaking them down and connecting the dots. Then actually implement these things and see for yourself! This is the best way to learn after all. Use those beautiful critical thinking skills to decide what works for you and what doesn’t.
For me, this book works. 10/10. It’s essentially a blueprint for life that I am implementing fully this year and beyond. This is definitely a book I will be recommending to everyone I know who wants to seize the reins in their life. I’m confident I’m on a path to success and I hope you are, too!
Full disclosure: I was able to receive an early version of this book via pdf, but I know I need my own version to write notes/highlights in so I've already purchased my own version.
This is the kind of book that you need to read once in a while to keep yourself achieving things at a higher level.
