Self Help Books and Your Goals
It's a new year and, like most everyone, you probably appreciate the fresh start. I know I do.
Isn't it just the grandest feeling to say -- metaphorically at least --
Yeah, baby! And guess what -- that's exactly what your new goal does.
Yet ... enthusiasm alone will rarely carry the day. You and I both know that even though you may have fallen short on a few things in the past, you were doing your best at the time. Being your best "you," and making the best choices you could with the information you had available. Don't we always?
Considering that, it's probably occurred to you that in order to take the shortest path to your heart's desire, accessing new resources might be wise. For many of us, one of the first resources we think of is a book. A self-help book! As the author of several self-help books, of course, I'm thrilled.
Yet I'll be willing to bet that you haven't gotten this far without cracking a self-help book or two already. And here you are. Still moving toward that goal and not quite there yet. While even a poorly-written book can open your mind to a wealth of new ideas, the very cream of the self-help crop is still going to have its limitations. Let's see why.
