Quote: “I learned how to believe in myself. Learned how to set goals, you know, self help books man. I just read every single one I can get a hold of, and I still do.” –Drew Carey
Question: If I’m looking for self help why would I read a book written by someone else?
Fact: Self-improvement books now account for at least a $2.5 billion a year industry in the U.S. alone.
Person One: You’re the type of character to spend hours in libraries reading and scanning through multiple books, analyzing most, if not every sentence and examining all the ways the author could have possibly reworded the sentence you just finished reading.
Person Two: You’re the median, the one who occasionally scouts for books outside of their comfort zone. You spend around 3 weeks searching, scanning and reading reviews for the perfect book whileslowly starting to give up thinking “There’s no books out there for me” or “I’ll just read To Kill a Mockingbird for the sixth time.” I mean no hate towards Harper Lee and the classical American literature; but c’mon, the 21’st century has became another dimension for authors and their masterpieces don’t give up now!
Person Three: You are none of these things. Not the book worm and not the type to even scout for a book. However, just because you aren’t type one or two doesn’t mean you can’t start now. I mean you obviously don’t hate reading that much since you’ve just read 250 words to see if I was going to write about those who don’t like reading. So no, I didn’t forget about people like you. Shockingly, I was once just you. So let’s make a deal, you continue and finish reading this article about the benefits of reading self help books and finding spiritual and emotional happiness and if you’re not fascinated and interested in reading at least five pages of one of the books I recommend, then you can take it up with my manager, however I have a feeling by the time you’re done, you’ll be saying “I’ve been missing out on so many helpful opportunities” and you will forget all about your phone, and showering and eating because you’re just too busy improving your life.
Self help books can range from balancing your work, academic and social life to reaching your spiritual climax or even just adding a touch of color to your wardrobe. Let’s get started in this amazing adventure to starting your new and improved life.
