Gumptionade makes your self-help plan work better!
You know what to do. You just can’t make yourself do it.
Gumptionade shows you how to develop the grit and mental toughness you need to reach your goals. It works with your self-improvement plan the way Oxyclean works with laundry detergent. You’ll get better results.
Gumption is the power to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. Gumption is courage, resourcefulness, and common sense in harness together.
Gumptionade shows how you can build your gumption with an entertaining, touching, and often funny collection of practical life instruction and great maxims such as “Put excellence before success;” and “Don’t lead with your wallet.”
The advice is firmly supported by true-life examples of gumption-driven problem-solving (e.g., NASA’s Apollo 13 rescue, Billy Beane’s accomplishments with the Oakland A’s, and Texas governor Ann Richards’ victory over political foes and alcohol). The author draws lightly on his own failures and recoveries, then gives concrete ways to rewire destructive thought patterns.
Sixteen compact chapters, and rewarding worksheets, spell out how to cultivate what you can control (your character) and show how properly applied doses of gumption can root out fears, head off destructive responses, and help you do what needs to be done.
Don’t start your diet, or any self-improvement plan without reading this unique willpower booster.
