For a self help book to work, we have to read right it through to end. While this may seem like a no-brainer, many people never finish reading books that they buy. In fact many people never read a book after they finish high school.
The next step after reading, is to re-read important parts and then start doing exercises – probably every day!
Self help books can give us great information but we actually have to put that information to good use….. (sigh)
Ah well! If we don't have time for a book, how about a tape or CD while we're driving in car?
Now that sounds like a good idea It's called *time management*. We can do two things at once! We can listen between news bulletins, while watching out for speed cameras or when driving kids to school (Mum do we have to listen to that again?)
Or we can prance round all day chanting affirmations, telling ourselves we are prosperous and abundant and how our business is improving . Trouble is we don't really believe it do we?
Or how about sticking little notes on all mirrors in our house proclaiming how we are losing weight and getting better and better every day, kind we have to rush around removing when visitors call....
I'm not saying these things don't work, they can and sometimes they do. There's some great motivational books, tapes and CDs out there and they're helping people all time. The problem is majority of us are simply not getting required results.
