Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's class "The Science of Willpower," The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity.
Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters. For example, readers will learn:
Willpower is a mind-body response, not a virtue. It is a biological function that can be improved through mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, and sleep. Willpower is not an unlimited resource. Too much self-control can actually be bad for your health. Temptation and stress hijack the brain's systems of self-control, but the brain can be trained for greater willpower Guilt and shame over your setbacks lead to giving in again, but self-forgiveness and self-compassion boost self-control. Giving up control is sometimes the only way to gain self-control. Willpower failures are contagious--you can catch the desire to overspend or overeat from your friends--but you can also catch self-control from the right role models. In the groundbreaking tradition of Getting Things Done, The Willpower Instinct combines life-changing prescriptive advice and complementary exercises to help readers with goals ranging from losing weight to more patient parenting, less procrastination, better health, and greater productivity at work.
The Rev Martin Luther King had a incredible gift of communication we preachers today need to take note and ask God to enable us to do the same. Dr. Kings timeless messages speak directly to the social ills today and we see that clearly in his sermon "The drum Major Instinct." Certainly theentitlement mentality would be eradicated if those whom are deluded by it would incline their ear to this provocative homily. Dr. King also shows his willingness to be literally a living sacrifice for the cause of civil rights in America. Martin chooses to give instruction about his funeral arrangements and what he would like to be said. This presentation is revelatory to the hearer of what they should find to be significant in life and what we should pursue while yet in the land of the living

On this episode of Unspoken Words, Robert describes the difference between Human Instinct and Human spirit. When it comes to how we interact with each other, especially in our personal relationships, we don't realize how much we still respond out of our instinctual nature. Our Instinctual nature is the the part of us that is just purely concerned with our survival and doen't have much care about our happiness or well being. Our spiritual nature is what brings out all of the traits and characteristics that make human beings and our relationships great, so listen in and join Robert as he breaks down these two aspects of human nature.

Recent events in France highlight the importance of understanding the roots of the death drive in humans and civilizations. Freud called it the "Death Instinct." Wilhelm Reich released it in his "Oranur Experiment" and described it as "Deadly Orgone Energy." Occult philosophers and theologians know it as demonic energy or deadly psychic energy. We need to understand it, and prevent it. Humanity is faced with nothing less than a clash of civilizations of life and civilizations of death. Life on earth as we know it, now hangs in the balance. As old Dr. Freud put it in his seminal work "Cvilizations and its Discontents," which force will prevail: Eros or Thanatos? Join your host, Dr. Steven Katz, philosopher of law, psychoanalysis, theology, and the occult, to think about this emotional plague and ways to prevent it.

Roland Comtois ( pronounced KOM-TWAH) is an expert in the inner voice is what we often call intuition or gut instinct. In many cultures accept that our inner voice emanates from that part of us that is connected to the universal whole and which seems to know things before we do. It may warn us of impending danger or give us insight; it can make us feel connected to people we have just met or make us uncomfortable with what should seem to be easy.
Have you ever ignored a gut feeling? You felt a certain something lunge in one direction, then you allowed your mind to pipe-up and say, “Don’t be silly.” Or maybe you heard a little voice inside that said, “Oh come on, don’t be rude—just go along with it—what can it hurt?” Only to find out later, it not only hurt, it came back to burn a hole in your wallet, shoot an arrow through your heart, and bite you in the butt, all at the same time.
