Yes, I believe in self-help

I believe in self-help because I see no benefits in refusing to believe that I can make positive differences, however slight, in my own life.

I believe in self-help because I wasn’t aware that the mere existence of frauds, scam-artists, and false gurus constituted a legitimate excuse for ignoring (or refusing to look for) material that is life-changing, empirically supported, and philosophically respectable.

I believe in self-help because I didn’t know it was cool to be unmotivated, uninspired, and unmoved by the possibilities of life.

I believe in self-help because I don’t reject ideas on the basis of what section of the bookstore they’re located in.

I believe in self-help because no one ever taught me that the process of developing my potential was inconsistent with the practice of loving myself right now.

I believe in self-help because I’ve met people who think they know everything they need to know and I’m not interested in being anything like them.

I believe in self-help because all other forms of help are rooted in my willingness to help my self.
