I went to a bookstore and asked the salesman,”Where’s the self-help section?” She said that if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
Self-help is actually knowing what you feel and believe in any moment. Our minds are wired .We aren’t designed to do uncertain and scary things in our life. Even if it is in order to be best.
Let’s imagine a scenario like you are in a meeting or in a conversation, an incredible idea comes in your mind. The micro moment you hesitate, your brain send signals that something is wrong.And it starts working to protect you.
But you didn’t hesitate to put on your favourite sneakers, your favourite perfume and list goes on.The second you were trying to give an incredible idea.The mind went blank.The brain started sending signals called ‘spotlight effect’ for your protection.
you know the most difficult thing is to do little things that improve you. No one can help you until you want to help yourself.
Let me be loud and clear- Motivation is a garbage.You’ll never feel like doing things that are tough or scary.So, stop it till you feel it.
You are only one decision away from a totally different life. The life you imagine. The life you want to live and the life you’re probably working for.
just for once take the control of that micro moment,the moment you feel hesitated.
why you need self-help?
Inspiration is for strangers. For you only you can motivate and inspire yourself. Resolving our own problems is known as Self-help or Self realization.
There are many podcasts related to self-help that will probably motivate you. But being a book lover, I prefer it over any other thing. A book a day keeps the stress away. But also nothing can inspire you only you can do that.
