I want you to be aware of the trap that any self-help will present to you. Self-help traps are often something we get into, generally self-help is magnetizing to a certain type of personality, when we find out how much neat things we can begin to change and implement into our lives. You begin to see the potential in yourself for change, but you also see the short falls of where you are now. You might have a lot that you can work on right now. There is a lot of improvement coming into your awareness the more you learn about the ideal place to be. That’s the problem. We all have an infinite amount of self-help that we can reason for ourselves, imagined or not. That’s why if you’re inclined to self-criticism, self-hatred, self-loathing, or any other type of self-inflicted punishment of failing to live up to our own standards, self-help can actually be very damaging to the self-esteem. Essentially the more you learn, the more you realize the less you know. Now, what we have to do is accept that fact. Let the ego go. Don’t fight it. There are no “know-it-all’s” on this planet, and the majority of what we know isn’t completely true either. Take one topic, one subject that is important to you and slowly chip away at it. That quick success, and that lasting success will increase your confidence in your ability to handle the bigger picture. Don’t spread yourself too thin, and work on five little goals at once, and try to get as far away from where you’re now as you can. You will just spin your tires and be in the same place once all your gas has been eaten up. Find a core one, and an enabling one. For instance, a diet that involves eating an immense amount of calories will disable any hard work put forth towards losing weight on an exercise program, and that can be discouraging. Understand your sticking points, for instance, portion control, and get to work on building up that little voice of reason in your head that reminds you there’s time later to eat the second half of the big meal.
