Need for a better newbie guide
Just seems like many people have come to find the courage to start improving their lives, and have ended up one way or another to these forums.
But whatever the problem is, low motivation, shyness, something anxiety, bad grades, hate something, fear of something, ect.ect.ect...
They all seemed to have the same basic first steps to improving.
Getting a life purpose because if you don't know what you want to do in life, or you don't know what your goal in life is, then there is not going to be a strong drive for the wanting to improve (motivation), and if this is not there, then there is not going to be a reason to continue when it becomes tough to improve. This one is huge.
Stop saying bad thoughts and have good thoughts
Well, you can call this several things like, law of attraction, intention manifestation, some other stuff, but the fact is you have to first even be concious that just having bad thoughts makes things worse, and even if you force yourself to say good thoughts, even if you think they are lies, they still open up the way to improvement.
Gain knowlege of what fear really is (all fears have the same common cause, which is just the fear of unknown)
Break the negative life patterns... just recognizing that all your subconscious habits and environment will just keep you glued in to where you are,
Patterns podcast #4, and how to do the first steps of break any type of habit...
And what to expect when trying to break habits, install new habits, [about my
And it all just seems linked to having low consciousnesses...
On Steve's home page, because he kinda just throws a whole bunch of articles at you, with no overlying guide.
Steve's Courage to live conciously is somewhat of a newbie guide, but it quite dense to read, and it's not that easy to extract a plan of how to improve.
And that people might ask certain specific questions, but that the underly solution to all these causes is the same, and that the solution is usually the same.
Do people get what I'm getting at and have any ideas to contribute about how to make a better newbies guide?

Try this very short and paradoxically very effective book:
Book Review: "How To Get Control Of Your Time And Your Life" by Alan Lakein

I would probably also include eating habits. Because like what was said in the energy thread, nothing else matters if you have no energy.
I remember reading a book that my mother had about leaky gut syndrome, and after eating bad food, just makes you feel horrible all the time. And through that bad feeling of eating bad food then you'd blame that feeling on some other external factor, like other people, or just your situation without realizing it was just your food that was causing all the bad feelings. Like that one guy who became depressed from eating nothing but McDonald's food for nothing but a month.
So perhaps its like a pyramid. On the base is your health with eating and exercise habits. And then everything else on top.

Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy is the best nutrition book that I have read. It is well researched and well written. Dr. Walter Willet is a scientist not a Guru. He doesn't have an ax to grind like many self-proclaimed nutrition experts. This book does not contain a single piece of advice that isn't supported by overwhelming evidence. If you only have money for one diet or nutrition book, this is the one you should buy. And if you don't have the money to buy it, go to your local library and check it out.
