One of my great passions is helping people to achieve success and reach their true potential, after all life is too short to not define and reach your smart goals. But saying is very much easier than doing.
I know a lot of people who seem to have tried everything, but are still not able to make the breakthrough. It may be fear of failure or even fear of success, maybe they feel overwhelmed.
Whatever is causing it, the impact is the same. Something is holding them back. This can manifest itself in procrastination, lack of focus or displacement activity, often leading to despair and frustration.
It can be difficult to know what you need to do. You need an actionable plan and the focus to stay the course, but where to begin. Do you have the skills you need? Do you have all the information you need?
There are a million (probably an exaggeration) self-help books out there, and it’s difficult to know which ones are best. The best one for you is undoubtedly the one that speaks loudest to you. All good self-help books basically have the same message, but they all have their own take. They all reflect the author’s path and speak in their language. They all have a different process, and in my experience, the best thing to do is find the one that resonates with you and stick with it.
I find the language aspect fascinating. I am an NLP Practitioner, so I understand the power of words, even though verbal communication forms a tiny part of any communication. But more on that another day.
One of the most important steps in any process is setting small, achievable steps. I have always spoken about, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” That analogy works for me. A smart goal can seem daunting, impossible even, so the best way to tackle it is to break it down into small, manageable steps. Imagine my surprise to read Brian Tracy in Eat that Frog speaking about eating frogs. Different language, different analogy, but underlying massage absolutely the same. To achieve your goals you need to articulate your vision, set smart goals, then create an outline of steps that you will be able to follow all the way to success.
But it’s difficult to know which book will work for you.
The other day I happened on a great book which has moved me forward a bit in my thinking. It’s called the ‘10 Best Self Help Books That Change The Lives Of Millions Of People.’ The sales blurb describes it as “One Of The Most Valuable Resources In The World When It Comes To Powerful Tips to Achieve breakthrough.” While I think that is maybe going a little far, it does set out the principles behind 10 of the most popular self-help books ever written.
The author says, “As a person just like you who has struggled with bettering my future and destiny, I have searched high and low to find the best strategies to fix this problem and I am fully qualified and equipped to help you put an end to your frustration with trying to wade through all the info you need to know to be a better person in the future!”
This book is a great way to get a good understanding of the message from some of the best self-help gurus around and hopefully give you enough information to move forward in your journey.
The book explores:
Viktor E Frankl - Man’s Search for Meaning
Steven Covey - The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People
David Burns - Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
Tony Robbins - Awaken The Giant Within
Spencer Johnson & Ken Blanchard - The One Minute Manager
And, of course, my new favourite, Eat That Frog, and many more.
