Most of us have no idea why we fail to reach our goals. Now eminent social psychologist Heidi Grant Halvorson shows us how we can finally win by revealing how goals really work—and by showing us how to avoid what typically goes wrong.
Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson offers insights that listeners can use immediately, including how to set goals so that they will persist no matter what; build willpower, which can be strengthened like a muscle; and avoid the kind of positive thinking that makes people fail. The strategies outlined in this book will not only help everyone reach their own goals but will also prove invaluable to parents, teachers, coaches, and employers. Dr. Grant Halvorson shows listeners a new approach to problem solving that will change the way they approach their entire lives.

Good but not Nine Things Successful People Do
I liked the book but it was long winded for what it brought. While her other book was to the point and extremely relevant this one had good things regarding when to be promotion focused and when to be prevention focused but it was drown in a sea of examples and explanations.
I would recommend if you like to improve on your thinking depending on the situation to improve your odds of succeeding at a task but definitely read Nine Things Successful People Do Differently before as its way better and it will take you a fourth of the time.
