Why self-help comes from yourself, not from a book

Self-help books are everywhere. There are a lot of people that swear by them and an equal amount who write them off as being nothing more than wishful thinking.

Despite the fact that there is no scientific evidence to support claims that believing in yourself and setting out concrete objectives lead to success, many of us want to believe that it’s true. They want to believe that if they work hard enough then they can achieve their goals. And honestly: It’s true.

So yes, there are other resources out there that will help you — but not as well as you helping yourself.

Self help is very personal.

You have to learn about yourself and your struggles

It’s what helps you understand the problem and from there you find a solution.
