What Else I say...

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'?

Here are those common new year resolutions:

01. Lose 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 mate
06. Quit smoking (Hypnotise yourself to stop?)
07. Find a better job
08. Learn 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?

And, thankfully, you don't have to wait until New Year to start improving yourself! You could start right now by reading the best articles listed at this site.
