Publisher's Summary

Engrained in our culture is the belief that unbending discipline is the only sure way to success. You must go to the gym five times a week, never order the dessert, and don't even think about buying that dress you keep staring at in the store window. Breaking from such a regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong! -- and Joyce wants to tell us why...
Though setting rules in our lives are important, it's just as important that we break them from time-to-time. Structure is a powerful tool, but when diverging from your own goals is seen as catastrophic, it can have a hugely negative effect on us. Balance is a core value in life and every once in awhile we deserve to indulge in a guilty pleasure or two. So don't feel bad about straying from your goals every once-in-awhile and in fact, embrace it: eat the cookie and buy the shoes!

Eat the Cookie

What was most disappointing about Joyce Meyer’s story?

Fantastic speaker at conferences but I find her books boring to read and listen to, and don't keep my attention.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed in the audio. I found the narrator's voice irritating and would never buy an audio with this narrator again no matter how good the content.

Any additional comments?

Joyce Meyer is a fantastic, engaging, lively speaker at her conferences. Don't write her off because her books may be dull, boring or read in an irritating manner. I would recommend listening to her speaking recorded live at a conference rather than books.
