  1. SCIENTIFIC SHORTCUTS TO SUCCESS: INCREASING WILLPOWER OUR BIGGEST ASSET PART 3 UNDERSTANDING HOW IT WORKS Presented by Roman Saini


  2. Oscar Wilde: 'I can resist everything except temptation."


  3. Identification among people When asked to identify their biggest strength, people say they are honest, hardworking,p 1, loyal, d Willpower or self control is something they will never associate with themselves . When asked why do they fail so often and are unable to achieve, thern the answer is again a lack of willpower.


  4. In general, politicians, scientists, social activists etc. try to blame the environment and situation . They will hardly say because of genes of an individual or because he of his willpower, he/she is a success/failure (politically incorrect, difficult to fix) Since, zero emphasis is given on understanding willpower (especially in developing nations like India), hardly any development happens eIt remains like a muscle which is never exercised


  5. Willpower in resisting urges A research conducted in Germany using beepers found that roughly 25% of waking hours is spend in resisting urges (4 hours everyday!) e Common urges include: . Eat . Sleep o Pleasure activity like reading a book, watching a movie etc. . Sexual urges . Internet


  6. Willpower in resisting urges casily than others e Surfing FB, playing a game on mobile, eating a small cookie, relaxing instead of studying/working etc. are almost impossible to resist (very small investment) e Sexual urges, sleeping, shopping etc. are easier to control (as relatively large investment) In general, these people succeeded every other time (50%)


  7. Perfect Day e Sound sleep for 8 hours . Wake up fresh, do yoga/running/cycling/gym/swimming for 1-2 hours . Eat perfectly healthy natural foods e Perfect productivity in work/studies for 8 hours e Perfect harmony in relationship (parents, children, loved ones, spouse)


  8. Perfect Day No anger, stress, anxiety or depression No time wasted on watching television/gossiping . No drugs taken: Alcohol, Nicotine etc. e Invested 3-4 hours on productive hobbies: playing guitar, gardening, cooking, reading books etc.


  9. You feel alive


  10. You look forward to waking up the next day
