Summary
  • "The noted psychotherapist and bestselling author of The Power of Kindness offers a concrete, meaningful program in developing your willpower to face periods of crisis. Crisis is an inevitable fact of life. All of us experience times of despair, gloom, fear, and uncertainty. But we each possess core reserves of internal resilience that can be cultivated for overcoming and anticipating such setbacks. In this stirring and deeply practical work, Piero Ferrucci employs insights from classical mythology, religious traditions, psychological teachings, patient case studies, and human-potential exercises to provide a full program in how to develop the adamantine chords of our interior selves. Ferrucci explores the pitfalls we face when traits of inner strength are deficient, and what we can expect when they are healthfully developed. Your Inner Will is an immensely practical study that helps readers navigate crises and pursue more integral lives"--
  • "The noted psychotherapist and philosopher uses concise, topical chapters to provide concrete steps to developing internal willpower during periods of deep stress, drawing upon insights from classical mythology and wisdom teachings, psychological traditions, patient case students, and human potential exercises"--
