Self-Help Isn’t What You Think

I watch people play a piano—sight read—and I comment, “That’s a gift.” People watch me write a book, from my head to the screen typing 60 words a minute, and they’ve commented, “That’s a gift.”

We all have gifts. We all have talents, some shared and some unique.

We grow by building on our talents, our strengths, not by correcting weaknesses. Ninety-nine percent of “self-help” books assume the reader is somehow “damaged” and has to “fix” shortcomings. But we don’t grow by correcting something(unless it’s ruinous). We grow by building on our strengths, which too many of us keep hidden.

Once you read someone else’s book, it’s no longer “self-help,” right?

Put the book down for a few minutes and think about what you’re great at, what your passion is, and build your career and your life around that. That’s self-help.
