Self Improvement Advice: Don't Be A Self-Help Junkie!

Home >> Self Improvement >> Advice


The key to self-help is to take action...

Whether it's with existing skills, or with knowledge newly acquired, you MUST eventually act, for any positive self-growth to take place! Otherwise, well you're nothing more than a self help junkie, greedily seeking your next fix of self improvement articles, ideas or advice.

And junkies are NEVER satisfied, they always need another hit!...

  • So this page aims to help you understand, again, the importance of YOU taking action - taking one small step, no matter how 'small' it feels, in the direction you want to go. (Even if the only action you take today is to get in touch and share your views on this not-so-surprising piece of wisdom I'm sharing here!)

Are You A Self Improvement Junkie?

What I say...

All the self improvement ideas in the world mean little if you don't take relevant and timely action afterwards. In that case, you really would be a self-improvement junkie with a 'hobby' - simply seeking out self-help articles, tips and training for the sake of it, but lacking the motivation to do anything useful with this knowledge.

I say 'no' to that! I say actions speak louder than words! (And I'm hoping that you're nodding in agreement with me right now.)

Taking action is not always easy, though - sometimes it is easier to read than to do; it's quicker to read a self improvement quote or visit another self-improvement site than to actually put what you've learnt into practice...

And that's why I've listed some recommended actions at the bottom of this page. But any action that takes you in the direction you want to go is a good enough action. Here are some example actions that are personal to me right now, but may well be relevant to you, too:

  • Face rejection fear - keep on opening yourself up to important relationships; keep on giving what you want the other person to give; it is the ONLY way!

  • Share self with others - share self with friends; share self with strangers; share self with anyone and everyone - confidently so

  • Let go - let go of attachments, of control, of 'need' and ALLOW life to flow as it wants, instead, and TRUST in yourself to be enough

These actions may well be less practical than the ones you might like to take - set goals, apply for a new job, join a new class etc. - but that's fine. Ideally, the actions you need to take should be the HARDEST actions you can imagine taking (as the ones I've share are).

Anyway, there's more of this kind of self improvement advice in my video below...

What these recommended resources say...

More self-improvement advice and ideas, more self improvement articles even? Maybe, yes, as you long as you don't over-indulge and you promise to take action with you what you end up reading!

Yes, to reiterate once more the main message on this page it's always about learning then doing! So my recommended self improvement advice to you is to do the following:

  • Read 1 of my favourite articles and DO!

    Or...

  • Read 1 of my favourite self-help books and DO!

    Or...

  • Buy a recommended self-help course and DO!

    Or... (my favourite idea!)

  • Commit to changing your life, today, via action
    You can't help but DO when you decide to commit to helping others via translating your passion or interest into your very own income-generating web business. And that's what SBI!, the service I used to create SelfHelpCollective.com, allows anyone - anyone with Brain, Attitude and Motivation anyway - to do (no matter if you have no web-building skills whatsoever, believe it or not!).

    I explain more on this SBI! self improvement page...
