The other resource I can't neglect to mention - for people really committed to being successful - is the book The Power of Habit. The author does a great job of explaining why it's far more powerful to invest our energy in the slow, steady process of building good habits to change our lives than to expect to be able to make something happen solely through sheer will power. Hint: Your brain likes to automate things - and once they're automated, you stop needing will power and just do them!
Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!!
