Too Much Self in Self Help

How to Win Friends and Influence People, Keys to Success, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, The Prophet, The Alchemist, Who Moved My Cheese?, The 48 Laws of Power, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Awaken The Giant Within, The Secret,  The 4 Hour Work Week, The Power of Myth, The Power of Now,  The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, The Art of Happiness,  Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, The Tipping Point, The Four Agreements, The Aladdin Factor, Self Esteem, Unlimited Power, Better Than Good,  When Bad Things Happen to Good People,  The One Minute Millionaire, Learned Optimism

If how-to’s were enough, we’d all be skinny, rich and happy!!  Seriously!  Just go buy a book – there are MILLIONS of them on as many topics telling you all the things you need to change, not change, do, don’t do, think, not think, invest, not invest, eat, don’t eat…it’s maddening.

Here’s a thought.

You are OK and more than enough, right where you are right now!!  If we’d all just accept that, know that, live that – imagine the amount of trees we could have saved – tears we wouldn’t have shed, lies we wouldn’t have believed and time we could have re-invested.

I’ll say it again.  You’re perfectly ok right now, right where you are.  It’s ok.  Let it sink in.

Take SELF out of it.  You’re left with HELP.  Go do that.


About amidean

An entrepreneur with 20 years experience, Ami most recently started the newest addition to her business family, The Rally Point. As the CEO & Mailroom Clerk at The Rally Point, Ami oversees Operations, Sales, Marketing and well, um, the mailroom. After starting WithIn, Inc. (an employee training and development firm) in 2005, she found herself repeatedly asked by her clients to find them a venue with a more inspiring and creativity provoking environment than the saltine cracker hotel room or in-house training room. Frustrated that she couldn't fill her clients requests (simply because it didn't exist in the market) she, being the customer service fanatic she is, created it for them. Ami holds her MBA but she truly feels her greatest accomplishment is being a living example of work/life harmony and to make that work - "You've gotta get creative!' she says. Ami has always felt that if fun couldn't be part of her job responsibilities, she just wouldn't fit the culture. "Now, I laugh, play and am truly able to create the perfect environment for those teams, businesses and organizations that need to incorporate fun into their meetings to boost creativity, production, morale and inspiration. My job rocks and so does The Rally Point, I mean, have you seen this place?" Fiercely passionate about her faith, her three daughters, and the MiAMI Dolphins, Ami still finds time to enjoy sitting on the Boards of Easter Seals of LaSalle and Bureau Counties and Women in Leadership of Central Illinois, shopping, interior design and traveling.
