“I’m going to lose 10 pounds before summer.” “This time, I’m going to stay in school until I finish my bachelor’s degree.” “From now on, I’ll work on strengthening my marriage every day.”
We all make promises to ourselves. But only a handful of us are able to follow through on those promises. Why? Because we never learned how… making and achieving personal goals is not a skill taught in school or covered in on-the-job training. But now popular author and motivational speaker John Powers provides a road map to keeping those private commitments.
In The Five Disciplines of Powerful People: How to Keep the Promises You Make to Yourself, John Powers takes you step by step through making and keeping a promise to yourself. You’ll explore how we think when it comes to improving our lives; discover how to build the inner strength you need to stick to your goal; and, most importantly, follow the process for achieving the commitments you make to yourself. As you work your way through this powerful program, you’ll learn to:
- Go from wishes and dreams to promises you can keep
