the self-help section at the bookstore is inherently oxymoronic, if you think about it. if you were helping yourself, why would you need a book to help you?
there are undoubtedly times when you need the sound advice of a mentor, friend, inspiration, or the page. collective intelligence and ingenuity is vaster than than the individual mind.
but, at times, instead of going down the rabbit hole looking for answers outside yourself, get quiet, listen…and help yourself. it might surprise you how often you have the right answer.
