Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success


Change Anything Book

If you’re like most of us, you’ve tried to change one or more areas of your life and failed. In this New York Times business bestseller, you’ll be introduced to the six sources of influence that affect your daily decisions, as well as fascinating real-world examples that will empower you to reexamine the way you go about your business and life.

Individual change isn’t only about willpower.

So often, we want to make changes to our own behavior but lack the resolve to see them through. We can’t seem to summon the necessary willpower to take on huge challenges like hitting our sales quota, earning a promotion, increasing productivity, or losing weight. But it turns out that willpower isn’t the only factor that determines whether or not we’ll be successful in our individual change efforts.

We can affect the influences that govern our behavior and put the power to change back in our control. With a clearer understanding of the science behind personal change, we can become ten times more successful at changing anything.

When you read this book, you’ll learn how to successfully apply the science of change to any personal change problem.
