Do you have any self help books hanging around? Maybe some you’ve never read! I’m guilty, lol. We all have the best intentions of getting ‘past that thing’ – that one nagging behavior or thought that spins us around & drives us crazy. So we buy a book to help get us there, and then don’t take any action.
My friend Amy Ahlers just wrote a bestselling self help book, Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves. I attended her book signing here in Los Angeles, and among the many great things she said, there was one funny quote she shared that cracked me up – ‘don’t let self help become shelf help’. Ok, fess up, you have a couple of books you never even cracked open. Me too! It prompted me to share this tip with you (and myself).
The Tip………. get off the shelf! Go through your collection and see which book is calling to you at the moment. Blow the dust off the cover if you have to, and give yourself time to delve into it. While you’re reading, do 3 things:
1. Keep a journal so you can jot down all the important things coming up
2. Keep a friend on call for support
3. Keep an open mind & enjoy your process!
Before you know it, you’ll be cruising into a new, dynamic, you 🙂
Let me know what book you decided on & why in the comment section below. Thanks, Paula
