Did you know that most self-help programs that follow the standard success blueprint have a 97% failure rate? The truth is that the typical personal improvement mantra of tapping into your willpower and activating the power of positive thinking is actually a recipe for failure.  In Beyond Willpower , bestselling author and psychological counselor Alexander Loyd, PhD, ND, reveals a unique, highly effective program to help you finally achieve the life you want and the success you deserve. 
     Science has proven that stress, or internal fear, is the primary source of virtually any problem we encounter- physical, spiritual, emotional, and even circumstantial. New research has shown that fear is literally programmed into us at the cellular level, which is why most of us are unable to turn off our stress response by willpower alone. For the first time, this book teaches you how to change your cellular programming from fear to love, triggering a natural chemical chain reaction that fuels you for your best success.
   Rooted in science, ancient wisdom, and proven therapeutic techniques to remove personal obstacles that sabotage us, Beyond Willpower offers a revolutionary 40-day holistic program based on more than 25 years of clinical experience. With this program you will identify and clarify what fundamentally defines success for you.  Then you'll receive the three simple tools you need to internally shift from fear to love physically (using the Energy Medicine tool), mentally (using the Reprogramming Statements tool), and spiritually (using the Heart Screen tool). You'll also have free access to the unprecedented "Success Issues Finder" test, which accurately diagnoses your unconscious and subconscious issues related to success and failure, happiness and unhappiness. No matter how you define success - as wealth, career satisfaction, healing of health issues, or resolution of relationship problems - Beyond Willpower will help you achieve it once and for all, quickly and for the long term.

Author Notes

Alex Loyd, PhD, ND, holds doctorates in psychology and naturopathic medicine. His 12-year search for a cure for his wife's depression led to the discovery in 2001 of The Healing Code's system to heal the source of virtually any physical, emotional, success, or relational issue. Since then his private practice has become the largest of its kind in the world.

Booklist Review

All you need is love, said the Beatles. Psychologist, naturopath, and coauthor (of The Healing Code) Loyd proves it through a combination of scientific research and client case studies. His philosophical foundation is simple: self-help principles fail 97 percent of the time because they're based on fear and stress. His remedy, connecting science with spirituality, relies on developing a success goal that's focused on an internal state, not an external circumstance, and then ensuring that you deprogram, then reprogram your physical, emotional, and spiritual self. Sound daunting? Actually, less so than it appears, since Loyd gives clear, step-by-step instructions throughout backed up by anecdotes that just make good sense. His book and online tools also facilitate a rethinking of who we are and where we're going, a much-needed support in this age of anxiety.--Jacobs, Barbara Copyright 2015 Booklist
