The ability to use willpower helps you more than you think. Much more.
Research has found willpower more important for academic success than IQ, that it improves social competence and assertiveness, and that children who were able to put up with temporary discomfort in exchange for a future reward are now more successful in almost every measurable way. Few skills offer such potential.
Most of us think about willpower helping us avoid eating too much chocolate cake, go to the gym, quit smoking, and the like. It helps with such things, but it helps a lot more than that.
This seminar covers willpower from many angles, with examples.
