Self Help Junkies
I have been away on a short holiday.I'd like to comment on the recent post and say that about a month ago I also took time to reflect on my life and the achievements I had so far made.It was a little painful because it is one of this things one would rather avoid .Well,given also the fact that I have done so much reading on self -Improvement I wanted to know if that knowledge had made a Significant impact on my life.The truth is ,It had upto some level.I realised that much of what I needed to do was what I've been doing.Things like Spending time with my family,taking them out for swimming,Strolls,ensuring that at least I try to be the best I can be for them etc and extending the same to my work place and in all other areas of life.But there was a nagging feeling of being stuck.I reviewed my way of living and the conclusion I came up with was that since I was already doing most of the things needed to be done ,the challenge was to up the ante.
I have now taken to learning meditation,being open to all ideas that come to me and implementing them.Learning not to live in guilt,learning Acceptance of all and putting premium importance to all things and beings that find a way in my life.
In all, I must say that it takes one to be responsible and courageous to want to really live and seek growth otherwise one might end up chasing the feel good factor of self help without the corresponding growth.

Steve, I've been reading your blog for a long time. Number one, Thank You! I really get a lot out of your writings. They always "ring true" with my spirit and it seems you are talking to me. Okay, enough of that!
Your "Self-Help Junkie" blog made me join group and post. I am a professional man..no, really, I am.....who was, er a "self-help junkie." You have described me exactly. Now I have had more pluses than minuses, but I had fallen into the habit of thinking...if I read, I did it!
Thanks for opening my eyes a little more. I wonder if at one time you were not a self-help junkie? To be able to describe with detail the attributes of "self-helpnitism" the way you have, it just seems you may have had some experience. It gives other's hope that they can turn "good intentions to good results."
