I have never been much of a fan of the self-help genre. I view all of that genre as a racket. And, if you are looking for help from someone else and outside sources then is it really self-help? Maybe you find this surprising or maybe you don’t, but I have always found better insight and answers to life’s problems in simple children’s stories.
Take the book above for example, The Three Questions, it is a short, simple, yet profound story that offers more help to a reader’s life than any self-proclaimed expert/self-help author could ever conjure.
This story is simple and powerful. The illustrated book format is aimed at a young audience but its message should be for everyone.
It sets out to answer three questions:
- When is the best time to do things?
- Who is the most important one?
- What is the right thing to do?
I won’t tell anymore as it will ruin the story but if you are interested in it’s message then you should check it out.
Sometimes the answers to questions we have can only be found in our actions.
Until next time, good reading.
