Self-help or self-hindrance?

Standard

Seth Godin makes yet another excellent entry on his blog about ‘self-help’ and concludes with the line:

“By the way, the only real help is self-help. Anything else is just designed to get you to the point when you can help yourself.”

How right he is. We all need guides in our life and they come in all shapes and sizes, sports coaches, mentors, family members, life coaches, managers, friends and they can all successfully take us to a certain point. However, the next step can only be our own. We are the only ones capable of making the decisions and the necessary actions to shape the life that we want.

It is a gift that we should all cherish.
