If you go to see your doctor, she gives you a prescription after. Will you go to drug store to get your medicine?
“Why not?” You May ask.
Exactly. You will.
But, think for a moment: did you read all the self help books you bought in the past? How many you actually read well?
I remember even last November when I clean my book shelf, I found a few books I haven’t started reading yet…
What is going on here?
For me, the time I search books and buy books is the most exciting time. Because I have the urge to learn something from reading these books and with underlined statement that I will gain skills and knowledge from the reading – to become a better self somewhat.
When books arrive to me, I feel that I have completed some of my mission – it feels that I already “there” (read the books). And my enthusiasm for gaining the information has diminishing a little bit.
I knew I need some help in contain areas, but I did not want to do the hard work to read the books.
The hard work is to take action.
The hard work is to do the work.
If we just buy the books and don’t read them, we are hiding. We using owning books as excuses for not doing the real work.
Getting the self help book and read them.
Do the real work.
Take your medicine.
You will become a better a little bit after reading each book. Your aggregated progress by reading one book at a time gets you a little bit better every time, and a better self.
