Motivation.

What a fun word. People love to toss it around.
If you perform a Google search for “how to increase motivation”
there are approximately 174,000,000 results.

When you Google “how to increase willpower”
there are only 600,000 results. 600,000 versus 200,000,000.
That means that motivation is 99.7% more popular than willpower.
(600,000 out of 200,000,000 is 0.3%.)
But hopefully this book will bump the popularity of willpower up to 0.4%.

Because seriously, willpower is freakin’ epic.

I’m telling you. Motivation is a big deal to a lot of people.

Most people think it’s the key to success.
Most people figure that if they could simply find a way to increase
their motivation, all of their problems would magically disappear
and life would become a dandy daydream.

But can I let you in on a little secret?

Motivation is a scam.

Motivation doesn’t work long-term.
It’s finite. It’s a short-term solution to a long-term problem.
And it almost always fails.

No one has ever become successful at anything based
on motivation alone. Motivation can be a really useful tool,
but it’s not enough to push you all the way to the finish line.
In fact, if you use it like a crutch in the way that most people do,
it will handicap you and prevent you from EVER being successful.

But if motivation doesn’t work…what does?
You ready for this?
Drumroll please.
Willpower.
