It's important to understand that just because information is free doesn't mean it's
not helpful. Conversely, just because you pay for information doesn't mean it's useful.
Selfhelp, as some of you like to call it, can
help effect positive personal change - it just has to be the right kind of self
help information for you, that's all! AND you need to take actions accordingly.
New Year Resolutions & Self-help?...
So, let me ask you a question: What do the ten most
popular new year's resolutions have to do with that dreaded phrase 'self help'?
weight, and get in better physical shape 02. Stick to a budget 03. Reduce
debt 04. Enjoy more quality time with family and friends 05. Find my soul
smoking (Hypnotise yourself to stop?) 07. Find a better job
something new - build a web business 09. Volunteer and help others 10. Get organized
Well, to me,
it's a recipe for self-help, don't you think! Either it's how to solve a problem
(e.g. debt, smoking) or it's how to make your life better (e.g. love-life, job).
This list, in essence, is about self-motivation
and self growth - don't you think?
the last thing I have to say about self help improvement - whether we're talkingwhat I consider to be the best self help books, articles,
tips, websitesaudio etc. etc. - is that sometimes self-help
doesn't make things 'better'; sometimes people can get addicted to
reading without doing; or they find too much comfort with the notion that their
problems are not their responsibility.
take care when it comes to self-help, eh!
Choose your resources wisely!
And always, always, always take action!
And, lastly, if you're
not making any progress with self-help you're probably self-sabotaging!
And you really want to stop doing that. It won't make you go blind (I don't think)
but it certainly will not help you live the life you deserve. Anyway, that's enough
