Self Help Courses: Worth Your Time Or Not?

Sedona Method Course
Although no one can put a figure on it, it’s probably fair to say that a huge percentage of people around the world are unhappy with the way that their lives have gone. Many will do nothing about it and will continue being unhappy and unsuccessful to the day they die. Others will contemplate doing self help courses to improve the quality of their lives.

Now I must admit that I’m a bit of a soak when it comes to gaining knowledge on personal development. I’ve read many books over the years on the subject, and I will continue to read for the rest of my life. I’m sure that a lot of people are in the same boat when it comes to reading lots of the top self help books. But how many people actually implement all that knowledge and take action to make changes in their life. The only times that I have made progress in my life is when I’ve knuckled down and taken action.

The Results Are in the Doing

That is the value in doing some actual self help courses (either online courses or at a venue)… it’s only when we PRACTICE and EXPERIENCE that true changes can take place in your life. This is the advantage that courses will always have over books, in that you are more motivated to take action on what you learn. This is something that you will have to accept… the only way to have success in your life is to take action and implement what you learn. Knowledge is power, BUT only when that knowledge is applied.

Abubakar Jamil in his article, 4 Most Overlooked Reasons Why Self-Help Material Doesn’t Change Your Life talks about people that take on self help books and courses and then do nothing… and then blame the self help course for the lack of change. He says…

“They attended the seminars, read the books, listened to the audios, received the email courses in their inboxes, attended tele-classes—but that is all they did. And that is exactly why they failed at changing their lives for the better.” More reading at … 4 Most Overlooked Reasons Why Self-Help Material Doesn’t Change Your Life

What About Online Courses?

The beauty of doing online courses is that usually the lessons can be downloaded onto CDs, MP3s or an Ipod. You can then listen to these lessons over and over again while exercising, walking or driving to work in peak hour traffic. The key to success in personal development is… repetition, and lots of it. Listening over and over helps you absorb the material more readily and motivates you more to take action. You can’t effectively read a book while you are exercising, or driving to work, so the audios really come into their own in this situation.

Although meditation is my main weapon in personal development, one of the most effective self help courses that I have ever undertaken is The Sedona Method audio course. In this course, the Sedona method teaches you how to release your feelings of doubt, fear and anxiety in the short term and the long term. It also allows you to release things that are holding you back from having real abundance in your life. If you’d like to learn more, you can read my Sedona Method Review here.

To me it seems like a no-brainer to complete good self help courses to further my success and well-being in life. My goal in life is to reach my highest human potential, and I find that courses help me achieve that much better than getting it from a book. For a small investment in time and money (which is usually paid back ten-fold in the long term) it’s definitely well worth the short term pain for the long term gain.
