I always thought any lack of willpower was my fault

"The material was eye opening about how certain stimulus leads to certain behaviors and how we can break the chain. I had quiet a few "Aha" moments as I progressed through the material. I always thought any lack of willpower was my fault or resulting from my own laziness about changing. I learned so much about how our brains work and how outside stimulus contributes to the runaway train when we feel a lack of willpower. My overall willpower has definitely improved. There are several exercises that I will continue with after the course because I feel like there is still quite a bit for me to learn. All the ideas around self congratulating were new to me. Lisa is able to celebrate small victories that lead to larger victories that ultimately lead to real change." Susan B.

Building wealth and willpower overall

"My goal was to get better at managing money. Through the course I was able to identify all the ways I was wasting money and even ways I should be spending more money to save myself more money in the future. I was able to make a lot of different choices that now, 6 months later, have become habits. My savings to spending ratio is twice as good as it was before the class, and I'm building wealth. Also I was able to apply those same principals in so many different parts of my life, whether it be my relationships, my professional life by hitting my sales quotas, and even little things like having the willpower to walk my dog and clean up the house every day." Jeffrey G.

Improving health and saying "No"

"I worked with Lisa a year ago. Working with her has given me the ability to realize the power of willpower. I read, while working with her, The Willpower Instinct and have continued to apply what I learned to my everyday choices (from passing up fast foods and junk foods to starting and sticking with a regular exercise routine and realizing when to say "no"). Lisa is a caring coach and is very knowledgeable on the subject." Dorese B.

Willpower does not need to be difficult

"When a person says "I'm ready" I believe they will find relief in learning about themselves and the tools to unlock their aspirations. We are continually changing and learning about ourselves. This course gives you a leap in your knowledge about yourself and others. I would expect everyone in the course to feel good about their progress. Part of my learning curve was to feel the same about myself. Amazingly, my focus has had a ripple effect into other areas. What an unexpected surprise. Willpower is contagious. I can catch willpower the same way I catch laughter. Willpower does not need to be difficult. I can have ease and joy in change." Stephanie W.

The Science of Willpower program led to a profound change

"Lisa developed, organized, and facilitated a 10-week willpower program with an emphasis on personal growth and self-awareness. I highly and unequivocally recommend her in this role. The experience was quite powerful and effective in changing patterns I had developed in life that I passionately wanted to change. I can say, honestly and sincerely, that the experience resulted in one of the most profound changes that have occurred in my life of many years." Robyn S.

Growing in ways I couldn't imagine

"We read The Willpower Instinct and Lisa led us through the book with enthusiasm and a genuine interest in helping us achieve the goals we had set out to accomplish. I especially liked the questions and assignments she gave, they helped me dig deeper and answer honestly about my true goals and values. If you're struggling to accomplish something and need motivation and direction for your path, The Science of Willpower is for you. If offers a concrete timeline and Lisa keeps you accountable, helping you make strides while growing in ways you might not have imagined." Jennifer D.
