Self help books have the potential to create positive change in people’s lives. There are so many people in this world, ordinary everyday people doing the best they can in their lives, who don’t yet know that things could be different, that their lives could be better, that they could feel better. Self Help books contain many ideas, philosophies and suggestions that may open the door to a new way of thinking, behaving or looking at life for people who are feeling lost, burdened, sad, stressed, overweight or struggling with any number of life’s challenges.
Everyone needs some extra support and encouragement at times in their lives and if you are really struggling with life then please find a counsellor or therapist that you feel safe with. Even If you feel that you are generally OK talking with someone is always very beneficial. Many people would prefer to do some exploration in private and this is where Self Help books can be very helpful and a good place to start. No matter what concerns or issues you may have there is bound to be a book out there written about the very thing you are struggling with.
Knowledge is power. The more you read about a particular thing, the more you know about it. With knowledge you can make informed choices and decisions and evolve your own philosophies. While it does take some time and energy to source and read different books the effort is well worth it. You are worth it. This is your life and your life is precious. Why not make it as good as you can for yourself?
How do you find a good Self Help Book? Browse in a book shop and ask about best sellers in the Self Help section- whether that be general topics or specific topics, visit your local library, read reviews and articles online, ask around friends and colleagues about good books they have read or heard about and visiting second hand bookshops or opportunity shops can prove be a real hidden treasure chest for older but cheap books which may give you some new ideas.
There is no need to continue to struggle with things in your life. Somewhere out there some answers and hope can be found if you will only take the time to look for it. While it would be wonderful to be able to wave a magic wand and make all things just the way you want them unfortunately that’s not the way things are in this world in which we live. It is up to you to reach out or ask for the help you need whether that be by going for therapy, talking with a friend or reading a Self Help book.
