There are 3 big reasons why everyone should try reading self-help books:
Undoubtedly, there are people who look down on the self-help genre. They think we ought to know how to live well already. Well, fortunately they are the only ones who think that way. Really, there is no shame in asking for help!
The fact is, and this is true for everyone, there are more things we don’t know compared to what we know. Reading self-help books can be one way to fill those gaps in life caused by our ignorance.
“You can always connect the dots in your life if you are looking back. The true art is believing that this moment right now is a dot that is connecting you to something amazing that’s coming in the future.”
“When you fall in love with the process rather than the product, you don’t have to wait to give yourself permission to be happy. You can be satisfied anytime your system is running.”
“The better ambitions have to do with the development of character and ability, rather than status and power. Status you can lose. You carry character with you wherever you go, and it allows you to prevail against adversity.”
“If you live in a past dream, you don’t enjoy what is happening right now because you will always wish it to be different than it is. There is no time to miss anyone or anything because you are alive. Not enjoying what is happening right now is living in the past and being only half alive. This leads to self pity, suffering and tears.”
“Being open with your insecurities paradoxically makes you more confident and charismatic around others. The pain of honest confrontation is what generates the greatest trust and respect in your relationships. Suffering through your fears and anxieties is what allows you to build courage and perseverance.”
People say we are social creatures, ultimately and forever dependent on others. However, what is usually lost on people is that we, first and foremost, live with ourselves. Thus, making peace with yourself is absolutely important for everyone.
Reading self-help books is one way to gain confidence, but before that you need to first be advised how to conquer self-hatred.
