About the Presentation:
Willpower – The Force That Shapes Us
Are you determined to make a meaningful change in your life, but do not know how to bring it about? Are committed to achieving your goal, but do not know what is holding you back? Have you been frustrated by your inability to overcome an undesired habit, or to adopt a new healthier habit?

In this presentation Uri explores three science-based interventions that will help you pursue your goal with greater effectiveness, replace an undesired habit with a healthier one, and become the best possible version of yourself.

The Willpower presentation addresses the following interventions:
• The Willpower Muscle •
• Mindfulness – A Powerful Tool for Change •
• The Habit Loop: Cue-Behavior-Reward •

Stepping out of your Comfort Zone

Fear not the podium

Thanks to all who joined us for the The Newmarket Toastmasters Open House

Here is the poem that Teena presented, keep TNT in mind when you want to step out of your comfort zone!


I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail,
the same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
but I stayed inside my comfort zone
and paced the same old floor.

I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
but deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and
closed and locked the door.

If you’re stuck in your comfort zone afraid to venture out,
remember that all winners were once with similar doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can
make your dreams come true.

Greet your future with a smile.
Toastmasters is there for you!
