“The Key to greater Willpower is being more Forgiving – not being harder on yourself.” “Self-control strategies like Guilt and Self-Criticism can result in our feeling worse.” We need to give those up if we hope to succeed.
Chapter Six (and the rest) of Kelly McGonigal’s The Willpower Instinct is full of liberating gems such as these. Necessary Words of Wisdom when we grow up believing we’re not going to get anything done, let alone keep our promises and resolutions, if we’re not at least a little hard on ourselves. Studies show this belief does not hold up in practical application.
Mordant & McFall explore what it means to Check Yourself before you Wreck Yourself. If you don’t cut yourself some slack, odds are you’re going to succumb to the “What The Hell Syndrome.” Why bother with the diet once you’ve caved with a heaping-helping of chocolate cake? What The Hell, right!? Wrong. And Forgiveness, not Guilt or Self-Criticism, is the fastest way to get back on track with your dreams, goals, and who you want to be in Life.
