I love the book title, If How-Tos Were Enough… because it refers to a prevalent FALSE belief that willpower and information is all it takes to accomplish anything. That goes along with demeaning people who just can't make some things work that way.

We all set our automatic pilots when we were children. We may have reset them if we encountered trauma sometime later in life, but we each have a part of our brain wired to protect us from anything that part of the brain considers dangerous.

Our willpower does as much good as trying to change the locked-in direction of the automatic pilot of a boat or plane. You can pull it in the direction you want it to go and hold tight. It will go that way for a while until you get tired and let go. Then it reverts back to automatic. 

It takes a different process to reset your brain's automatic pilot.

There are many ways to do this–it's just that willpower isn't one of them. Logosynthesis, the process I teach you in this book, is one of them. One of the most simple and effective ways discovered so far. It is easy to learn and practice. All you need to do is learn it and remember to use it.

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 56 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work.
