“When your mind is preoccupied, your impulses - not your long-term goals - will guide your choices.” - Kelly McGonigal
Are you one of the many people who easily give in to the temptations of eating sweets, smoking, drinking alcohol, buying things you do not need, or just sitting and going through social media for hours?
Do you realise that giving in to temptations only provides temporary satisfaction and hinders you from becoming a better person? To have a better life one needs to have the willpower to overcome these temptations.
Willpower is defined as the ability to resist temptations or control impulses. These temptations provide short-term gratification and hinder us from achieving our long-term goals. Having willpower along with other factors can give you a better life.
Listen in as I give you insights on how you can unleash the power within you to have the great life you deserve.
