I am a proponent of Wikipedia.  I understand that there may be mistakes and debate over some content in Wikipedia, as with all sources of information, but in general I respect the information presented there.

The following quote from the Self Help page goes right to the point:

" "Salerno says that 80 percent of self-help and motivational customers are repeat customers and they keep coming back 'whether the program worked for them or not'."[34] Others similarly point out that with self-help books "supply increases the demand... The more people read them, the more they think they need them... more like an addiction than an alliance."[35]"

Let's assume the above is correct.  I have had positive results from learning self help and success principals, so how can that agree with the above statements?  First of all, it should be noticed that there is no mention about the success of the programs.  What if I said 80% of body builders keep going to the gym?  Does that mean going to the gym doesn't work because they have to keep going back?  How about the fact that the more a person goes to the gym, the more they purchase health books, clothes, supplements and equipments, does that make them addicted to health?

When we think of it in this context, it makes perfect sense that a person that has received positive results from self-help would want to continue to reinforce the learning.

Have you had positive results from learning success principals or is it a waste of time?


I am at this time not certain the location you happen to be getting your data, nevertheless good concept. I've got to start using a even though figuring out extra or maybe seeing far more. Significantly required to you intended for awesome data My spouse and i used to be in search of this kind of brightness with regard to the vision.
