Last month I wrote on Ikigai. This month I am writing on Self Help. What is happening to me? Well, nothing. Fear not, for no alien has abducted me and replaced me with a self-help books loving clone.
I have always found the concept of self help books a bit abhorrent. If you know what’s wrong with you and you want to change yourself, you don’t need the validation of a book to motivate you. If your concern for performance improvement is genuine, the motivation to change will come from within. If not, then I can describe your situation as “What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?”
Well if you don’t know the answer to the previous question, it’s a paradox, and so is your dependence on self help books.
Here is hoping everyone tons of self improvement minus the psychobabble of these self help books.
