    I read 100 self-help books. From The Power of Now to Deep Work, to Daring Greatly and Awaken the Giant Within. You can say that I have a bit of a problem. But I learned so much from these books, and the lessons might change the way you look at self-help.

If you die tonight, do you know where you're going? Did you know that Jesus Christ is THE only way to Heaven and He loves you? Through Him, God offers you a FREE gift – forgiveness. All you need to do is repent, turn away from your sins and evil ways, from now on put your faith completely in Jesus Christ and be obedient to Him. Biblical explanation of the Gospel: God doesn’t want anybody in hell because He loves us, but you must understand why we deserve hell and why those who refuse to live under His authority will go there. (Matthew 12:30) ''Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.'' He gave us the law (Ten Commandments) not to make us righteous, but rather to show us our sin (Romans 3:20). God gave us free will and since Adam sinned in the garden, sin is the nature of our flesh and we ALL have sinned. (Romans 3:23) The law demands death to those who sin (Romans 6:23). Revelation 21:8 says that all liars will go to hell. For someone to be justified before holy God they have to be sinless, that's why everyone need Jesus Christ - for He lived a sinless life and resurrected. None of us are good in God’s eyes, because for God good means moral perfection. We all have broken God’s commandments, we all have sinned in our lives so none of us are good. ‘’For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.’’ (James 2:10). Our carnal mind is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's moral law and it never will (Romans 8:7). We hate the thought of God for the same reason a criminal hates a policeman - we know we have sinned against God and are guilty of it, but we don't want to be damned. Good News is that Jesus Christ lived a perfect, holy, sinless life, Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was buried and He was raised from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.’’ (John 3:16) We aren’t saved based on our good deeds/works, but only by the grace of God through faith. ''For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) Jesus said ‘’it is finished’’ (John 19:30) just before He died on the cross, which means He paid the fine for our sins (past, present, future) to be forgiven if we repent and trust in Him. ''What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!'' (Romans 6:15) ''Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out'' (Acts 3:19) Repentance is a turning away from sin and all evil works, and it always results in changed behavior (Luke 3:8). Biblically, a person who repents does not continue willfully in sin. While sorrow from sin is not equivalent to repentance, it is certainly an element of scriptural repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10). Do not play a hypocrite. ''God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.'' (1 John 1:5-6) If you have repented and have genuine faith in Jesus Christ then you will receive the gift of Holy Spirit and be born-again spiritually. (John 3:3) Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again." When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession - to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14) You are born again with the Spirit of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. (John 3:36) ''You will know them by their fruits'' (Matthew 7) If you have been truly born-again with the Holy Spirit and He has regenerated your heart, you will desire righteousnes - to do what is good and righteous in God's eyes, to seek God everyday in His Word and prayer, to strengthen your relationship with God. You will no longer desire to willfully continue living in sin but will want to obey God out of your love for Him because of His amazing grace revealed to us through the death and resurrection of His Son. ''Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.'' (2 Corinthians 5:17) ''For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.'' (Eph 2:10) You will have a testimony - of what your life had been before and how has it changed now when you have surrendered it to Lord Jesus Christ. As a declaration and affirmation of your faith in Jesus Christ, get baptised in water because He commanded us to do so. In John 3:5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.'' ''Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit'' (Matthew 28:19) ''Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.'' (Acts 2:41) ''And this water symbolizes the baptism that now saves you also - not the removal of dirt from the body, but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God - through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,'' (1 Peter 3:21) ''We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.'' (Romans 6:4) ''Having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.'' (Colossians 2:12) Please get right with God and start your relationship with Jesus Christ today before it’s too late, because there’s not much time left! "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.’’ (Mark 13:32) Get to know Christ through God's Word - Bible. At first I recommend reading Gospel of John and book of Romans. God bless you! Jeremiah 29:13 - ''You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.''

I feel like a lot of self-help books can be summarized in one sentence: "The secret to happiness is that there is no secret." I've read a few self-help books, but for me, real self-help comes from good stories. Whether fiction or nonfiction, learning about someone else's life and how they overcame obstacles is what really helps me improve my own life.

And thats why i avoid reading self-help books. Ive read a few and sometime i strucked gold, but most of them are forgettable, boring, irrelevant to my life, and thus, hard to finish. Quite a lot of times i was drawn to a clickbait of "new york best seller", "translated into 50 languages" blablabla then found myself dissapointed. Id rather read fiction. I grew up with them and i took lots of meaning from feading them that somehow i get surprised and i thought "hey, didnt i read something about this a while ago?". And thats the best feeling. A feeling of you being incapsulated and found yourself within the story that youve read and loved so much. I live for that feeling. And thats why i'll keep reading fictions and avoid the self-help ones.

Also, while not everyone is into "alternative views of the subconscious", like I am, it is a fact that we are not all wired the same and we are not all going to have the same path to success. This is why self - help books are a start, but often people work 1-1 with coaches to find that combination of special sauce for them. It's the rare person who is going to read a book and make massive strides, or there would only be one book. Like all areas, take a nugget of two from each and filter the rest through your own lens of what reality, self-awareness, application to your individual goals, and stage of life. And I agree, storytelling is the way we all learn and grow, because that's truly the best way to relate to others. Otherwise it is just information.

Lately I’ve found that fiction can be just a good source for inspiration to improve myself: I get inspired to do well at university while reading The Name of The Wind, more focused on paying attention to my conversations when I read Norwegian Wood and so on.

@gloverelaxis fiction isn't just about what's in it for me. Yes we can get caught in a thinking trap like that but most people don't like to think rigidly like that. Fiction is self help even better sometimes cause it can teach you how to empathize with people who are different then you. Different views. Teach u Things you didn't know you cared about. I also consider these benifits benificial for me. Doesn't mean it's selfish or self centered.

@Cole Mumme atheism is literally correct, though, as in it's the most accurate model we have of how the universe works. you don't believe in magic or ghosts, nor should you believe in gods or resurrection. saying that "most truth lies between two extremes" is so unbelievably asinine and stupid. some of the most important "truths" right now, such as Marx's model of how capitalism works, lie so *beyond* the conventional/popular "extremes" as to make those two "extremes" seem identical. it doesn't matter if 2 billion people insist that 2 + 2 = 100,000, and another 3 billion people swear that 2 + 2 = 100,001. 2 + 2 = 4 regardless of the social popularity of that position.

There was a point when I read and listened to ALOT of self help books and podcast . In the years of mid 2000s to early 2015ish … But after a while so much of it became overlap and repeating the same message. “Face your fears, never quit on things you are passionate about, life is short” . A paragraph could summarize most these books … And the advice and “action steps” of many of these books was so vague and esoteric. Also I got tired of self help books from people , who’s only life experience was, self help .

I'm now testing a personal theory. Everyone knows the "get hobbies" and beat fears bullshit. But we can't do those anyway because comfort, discomfort, comfort zone, fear etc stops it. As a solution I'm doing cold-showers and it got me on track to doing other things that require discipline. It's like simply that my nervous system got stronger, or brain resilience went up, so now I unlocked the stage 2 activities that were locked due to discomfort or out of comfort-zone. Now I do them and it's so much easier to keep building 1% every day. I presume if I keep performing at stage 2, many more difficult things will seem easier. I will start those scarier things. Face the flinches. Consistently log progress into a greater goal. Every day is enjoyable. I haven't done shit, or achieved anything yet, or any of the major goals, but there's progress. Better than being the 90% who quit at chapter 1.

I agree! Self help books can be useful, certainly self awareness is a positive attribute, but also can be addictive. They can promote self-absorption. How many of these books does one need to read? Seems like it can be an obsession. Also, the more messed up and dysfunctional an author of some of them can convince readers that they are, the more profit for the next book in the works..it also makes for a profitable industry to repackage each other’s concepts over and over. I pulled back from reading these books awhile ago, after sensing a hamster wheel of sorts, and now I feel less anxious, more peaceful. A few key ideas were helpful I’ll admit and to maybe even hear repeated, but with a limit. It’s human nature to think ‘this is good more is better’ when it’s not..

I strongly agree! I used to be obsessed with learning as much self-help and personal improvement as possible, especially going from video to video. But eventually realized that I wasn't seeing much benefit because I couldn't recall much of what I had "learned" and didn't put it into practice. Overall, if you aren't first covering the essentials (enough sleep, eating right, exercise, have a planner), then you'll see minimal benefits from other tips like email management techniques. First though, grapple with why and whether you should be pursuing self-help. In what way do you want it to improve your life? To what end does being hyper-efficient matter if it just means you can now do more work? What do we lose by trying to turn our imperfect selves into unreachable perfection?

I started struggling with memory retention issues last year, so I've started underlining in my precious books--something that my younger self would have found unforgivable. It's actually been so much easier to flip back through and read the underlined portions to remind myself of my biggest personal takeaways from the book.

Vor 4 Monate

I’d recommend not going down the rabbit hole of self help to begin with. High 5 Habit, anyone? That said, I think minimalism is a good habit to get into. Own as little as you can. So, read something on that, Joshua Becker for one is good I think. Practical stuff that will benefit you. And apply minimalism to self help as well - carefully select what you read. Also, mindfulness…not really a practice like yoga where you do it for an hour a day, just something you are. Basically - don’t think too much and pay attention to the moment. Best book I’ve read on this was The Practicing Mind by Thomas Sterner. As for James Clear - he claims by improving 1% each day with a compounding effect, you can be 37 times better at the end of the year. But if you take that to 2 years, now you can be 1,427 times better. 3 years - 53,939 times better, and now we are into lala land. Compounding knowledge requires increased effort each time because the more you know, the more you need to learn to increase a similar percentage each time. A million dollars compounds as easily as one dollar in the same investment account, but applying the idea of compounding to self improvement doesn’t work because you’ll eventually run out of hours in the day. A poorly thought out concept, and good example of a lot of the fluff in the self help world.

After going through quite a few self-help books/videos, I realised that, mostly, the answers are within us, unless we need help on specific, more technical, topics. Our mind knows already what it wants and what's right for it. Persistence and discipline is where most of us lack.

My unoriginal yet effective 5 cents for finishing the books you start: 1. Always pick a book that jumps out to you right at that moment (not one you think you should read) 2. Don't be shy to skim through boring sections (don't force yourself to read them word for word) 3. Attach reading to something you're already doing (for me that's drinking tea in the morning & commuting - I now read at least 1 book/week)

SOME IMPORTANT NOTES: 1) Taking Action, non matter how small, is the Key to making progress 2) A good rule of thumb: pick at least 3 concepts from every (self-help) book and put them into practice immediately. 3) Take notes and put bookmars when you read (probably actual books are better) 4) We often flinch in the face of fear, BUT if we embrace the flinch (instead of suffering it and getting blocked): when we repeatedly expose ourselves at different kind of flinches, both big and smalles, we can start to overcome fear and build the life what we want. 5) Avoid the mistake of blindy follow whatever advice is being shared (in self-help books): find what work for YOU 6) If you ask yourself what will stood in the way of progress, and than you develop targeted strategies to change beahvior, the results will be far better 7) The best self-help book ask you to think critical, the worst ask you to blindly follow a step by step plan: it's your responsability to question everything and ask yourself "how can I adapt this work for my life?". What's important is to be able to go in with an open mind, find 3 things that you can test, and hopefully find one thing that'll stick for the long run. CONCLUSION: Is important to remember that ultimately self-help is about the self, that's YOU: whatever piece of content you consume, consider how you can be an active participant in your own journey, by questioning, implementing and taking action in your own life (see #1): while it's great to take inspiration, you need to become your own "guru".

I agree. Even if the person does not take the important action, the tendency is that the general mindset will change. I see this in a colleague who loves Ted talks. While they've not really acted on the ideas, they have become a much more positive person over the years, (and do have some good advice sometimes).

Interesting that you mention the thing i found out about self-help books within the first minute - taking action! You can read 100s of these books and become the greatest expert on the topic, but if you never take action it doesn't matter. And most people will read these books and continue to not take action. That is why this industry is so successful. People have all the needed tools in their hands but when it comes to action they rather quit and read the next book hoping for the secret formula that will change their life.

Agree yes, most people basically _read_ those books as an end, rarely as a means that leads to acting. And besides, most of the information contained in them is available for free online in a ton of different shapes and forms.

Great Video Matt. and I absolutely agree with this one. I'm lucky that I started highlighting and taking notes after only reading 3 books without doing so because I felt like I was not able to recall any info from them. Now I highlight the key ideas in every chapter, and every Section or so I copy these highlights and try to rewrite them in my own words. It lets me recall the ideas and keep a small summary of the book to refer for later when needed. I'm not doing my best at taking action but I'm definitely trying to.

I just realized exactly the same what you have explained. I like to read self-development books every morning for 10-20 minutes, but sometimes I forget things, so I'm getting serious about taking notes. What else what I have noticed, that not all the time you should take actions immediately after reading books like these. Maybe, you are already on the right path, but these self-development books will strengthen your belief, that you do the right thing already.

Thanks for the book recommendation. Based on that I just bought it on my audible account and listened to it in the car on a long drive. Love that he takes a variety of self-help philosophies and psychological methods and distills them down to the important practices we can follow. I have a daughter who has labeled herself as "having mental illness" and I have done a lot of thinking about the idea that one could have heart disease and the remedy is to get in shape by working out and for mental health, same sort of thing, one needs to develop mental habits and practices that promote and protect good mental health. We can all let life drive us crazy if we don't.

Probably both. Anyway, this type of content can often be the door to a world.

Hi, Matt ! I agree completely on the first several points ('m continueing to watch the video, thus I can't comment on others yet). Great habits to implement: small steps each day lead to results + underlining the important info from the books you read. I remember me being at school and not being able to mark anything important for me in books, only with a very light pencil...But these days I underline with very bright markers and it helps me. I also fix stickers to the pages I like and.. it does help me!!! No need to reread the book because we don't have that much time in our life for the second action. And I do agree that whatever we like we should transfer from the theory to immediate practice. Otherwise, we will just forget soon ... or we will never try it... :) Thanks, Matt :)

Thanks for the video! I'm currently into reading self help/improvement books, too. I prefer to read these in PDF format because I can easily cut/paste passages that I think are gold. For each book I read, I create a “notes” file that I can come back to later and refresh my memory.

Appreciate you having a preference of your own between audio and physical books but it’s not fair to say one is better than the other. Different learning styles and abilities don’t all benefit from reading as much as listening. When we listen to a book we’re not using an inferior format. Just the opposite — it’s what’s best for us and our needs. And you can take notes while listening to something. Same goes for leaving markers, lots of audiobook apps support this.

I learned the concept of "netting out" useful information from the books I read. Highlight, underline, annotate, etc. to markup your book then afterwards build a summary presentation as if you were going to give a 5-10 presentation to someone, then do it. To truly test your understanding of material you have to be able to practice it and teach it. If you can handle any question thrown at you from your audience then you've mastered the material.

1000% Agree to either practice some of what they are saying as you are reading it or annotate your books. The self help book that really "opened my eyes" was How to UnF*ck Yourself. There is a line in there that really stuck with me about him bashing self help books (in a sense people are not putting them into practice) stating something along the lines of: What are you going to do? Buy a new self help book, read it, feel productive for a week and then spiral back into your old habits and buy a new one and restart the cycle. You know what you need to do so start acting and stop "pretending" you are fixing it. At the time I had read 15 or so books back to back no applying or practicing anything. I read less of the books now but do so with more intention to practice what I'm doing to actually help myself instead of putting a bandaid over it

I don’t have a lot of time to read, and that often stopped me from reading at all. If the time commitment of a new book is significant to you, I’d suggest using a strategy I learned a while ago: Go through each chapter and read the first page. You’ll get a good understanding of whether or not that chapter is valuable to you. Only read the chapters that are going to be relevant to you. I’d also suggest writing a short sentence or two above the chapter titles about the key takeaways of the chapter. You won’t want to re-read the book, but a few sentences here and there is easy when you’re revisiting the ideas.

There is so much to gain from them for sure, I’ve probably read maybe a combined 20 books around self help, property investment & business etc but Gary Vee’s twelve and a half ingredients gives a stupid amount of perspective. The world is changing! Big ups everyone 🤙

I have to say I'm not a fan of self-help books but I fricking love the Snail Mail newsletter, I always check out at least one of the articles or other media linked in each issue, and it made me discover Wordle! ❤

Good video, I am a multiple reader, meaning that I can't sit to read one book at a time, but read mainly one chapter of each book a night . But I like that take notes and highly. I like repetition but the fact that I lose myself in book stores and forget what books I have read and I think I should read again. I found your video very helpful.

Hi Matt, great video and content - thanks. This is Patrick here from Mind Life Flow Channel - I'm a Clinical Psychologist in Australia. Good to see an honest review on self help books as there is SO many right? I agree how to find friends and influence people is a classic self help book!

The cold shower. How funny. I recently tried that. I thought about it for about two weeks, before leaping in. Now I can handle cold showers, sort of lol! The smoking cessation one is more interesting. I had caught an essential sliver of information about Alan Carr's "Easy Way to Stop Smoking," that quitting smoking is hard because people keep saying it's hard. With merely that knowledge, and without ever having read the book, I quit smoking.

Here's what I'd learned: 1. You don't need a self-help book/advice in the first place. 2. Be realistic and admit your mistake. 3. Pick a better book, let's starting from pop psychology, pop philosophy, and turn into any classical non fiction works you could find. 4. Redefine your life purpose and reason to exist. 5. Retreating from the social media for a while.

Great video, as always, my man! I also am too careful about annotating my books and I also fall into the category of those that only read the first chapter, or two, of probably the same 100 self-help books you’ve read all the way through. However, that changes today. From the vid I watched right before yours and then Seinfeld yours now, I’ll get back to the full read and notes, because I learn way better that way myself! Anywho, GOD bless and keep it pushin’ man!✊🏾🦉💯

Great video! I am a single child and my parent's dont have much exposure to the world. From Time Management to understanding Narcissim; i owe everything to self-help books. My books are my mentors.
