I understand that nobody can be a rock all the time.
What does that have to do with what I'm saying?
To compare it to the training thing, you can skip training once, a week, a month due to lack of will.
But if you quit permanently I doubt it has to do with your will being depleted all the time. It has to do with failure to rise up to the occasion on your part.
Basically the author is saying that even though learned helplessness exists you should never succumb to it and give up.Quote:
Every day – your job, the government, your addiction, your depression, your money – you feel like you can’t control the forces affecting your fate. So, you stage microrevolts. You customize your ringtone, you paint your room, you collect stamps. You choose.
Choices, even small ones, can hold back the crushing weight of helplessness, but you can’t stop there. You must fight back your behavior and learn to fail with pride. Failing often is the only way to ever get the things you want out of life. Besides death, your destiny is not inescapable.
You are not so smart, but you are smarter than dogs and rats. Don’t give in yet.
GUESS WHO ALSO HAS BEEN SAYING THAT?
Are you saying that someone shouldn't be responsible for their actions if their will is depleted?
I don't want to put words in your mouth.
