This week, we answer a listener's question: "Wondering if you could discuss willpower especially in the workplace? It’s hard when people are negative when you won’t have a biscuit etc... if you’re not in the right frame you end up giving in for an easy life and then beating yourself up & not getting the results you wanted that week! I find once you say yes, that’s it your mind gives in and it’s a slippery slope. How do you say no and not cause animosity??
