I recently received an interesting letter, in which he asks to express my opinion on the abundance of books and a variety of courses on self-development. First of all, I totally agree with the author of this letter is that the abundance diverse literature on self-development quite confusing and leads people to believe that “because I do not get results, either to me that something is wrong or” they “are trying to fool my head.” I propose to begin the argument from afar. Add to your understanding with Ben Silbermann. First question. If a person has already been quite successful, he would read these books? – NO second question. To the authors and publishers have made a profit, how many books to sell? – Very much. Third question. What condition necessary that the books were attractive to the greatest number of people? – They must offer easy and accessible system, and promise a big win in the end. (The main slogan – “It may be one!”) Theory, after reading this book, the average person should have enough information to begin to change their lives for the better.
But! Look around – how many you see around you people who are able and willing to change something in your life? According to statistics, only 1-3% of the population can benefit from coaching, training or other forms of professional assistance to develop their own potential. This so-called “krieytory” or “creators”. The remaining as 97-99% of it’s not that “incomprehensible”, but simply “FIGS do not.” But books on personal development, they will still read and admire the will and grasp of different systems, and endlessly seek “his higher self.” But at the same time, they are in their essentially a “reactor” – those who respond to external factors, “kicks destiny” (those who live on the “damn, no luck” to “Well, damn it, again no luck”) or “visitors” – that is a such tourists – came, looked, listened, got pleasure and went to listen to something else.
