Self-help books: God helps those...

A worried look...  (Public Domain)
Those who believe in utter predestination might want to stop reading this article now.   All others might wish to take a peek at some of these self-help teachings.

MSN Living reports on a potpourri of books that claim to help you help yourself.  Dale Carnegie's How to Stop Worrying and Start
Living is a classic in this genre.  Beyond simply "winning friends and influencing people," it gets to the root of why some folks would rather just hide:  they are filled with anxiety.  This book provides
some "old-timey" tips for relief from this gnawing fear.

The Secret, of course, is no secret.  Ever since Oprah's promotional campaign, this title has been on everyone's lips. The book's message is quite straightforward:  "if you think about something reeeeallly hard, you'll get it."

Then there's Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance.  Author Jonathan Fields invites readers to "embrace the unknown."   He knows whereof he speaks, having quit his "corporate gig to open a yoga studio…"

There are many more such books – books that not only entertain you, but also educate you to the possibilities of co-creating a life filled with miracles.
