Selling Self help Ebooks is big business.

It seems that millions of people, just like you and me, are seeking ways to improve their lot in life.

They are looking for ways to make life changes, to make their life work. They are hoping to feel better about themselves.

They are seeking spiritual self help; they’re looking for AHA moments.

People look for self help books because they are unhappy with some aspect of their life.

Mary Engelbreit:
“If you don’t like something, change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”

Here’s a common pattern: you read an ad, you like their promise and say this is for me. You buy their product and then you do nothing.

Most people read a book then set it aside and wonder why their life hasn’t changed.

People pay thousands of dollars every year for self help:
Books and Ebooks
Videos and CDs

And at the end of all that, their life situation remains the same.


Victor Frankle says it so well
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
Most people want the book to change them. It doesn’t work that way.

To bring about a change in your life you must be willing to change.

People are often dissatisfied with present conditions.

They are dissatisfied about some aspect of their present life:

Spiritual quests
Spiritual itch
Or they simply feel that life sucks

Who are these people? Anyone who is not satisfied with life.

People of all ages, sizes and characteristics are searching for:

A better way
A more peaceful life
More money
Better sex
Improved relationships
Self knowledge

People of all ages seek to improve their life through:

Self change
Changing partners
New cars
Sex and drugs
Self help books
Other personal growth tools

Peoples’ unhappiness is Big Business.

Mignon Mclaughlin:
“It’s the most unhappy person who most fears change.”

With the current economic down turn many more people are experiencing dissatisfaction and depression.

A good time to buy self help products is right now. During tough economic times more and more people seek relief; they are looking for a feel better course of action.

“ If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.”

The majority of people buy their self help Ebooks online. There are millions of sites offering self help books, Ecourses, videos, and CDs.

Some have something to offer and others are simply junk.

So how do you know?

How do you keep from getting ripped off?

There are some gazillion self help tapes, books, seminars and Ecourses available and unfortunately, many of them are rip offs.

How do you protect yourself?

How to effect real change in your life.

Author Unknown:
“God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it is me.”

Once you find a product you feel good about, buy it.

Then you must do the footwork. Don’t expect the book to change you. You must change you.

Joan Wallach Scott:
“Those who expect moments of change to be comfortable and free of conflict have not learned their history.”

Rosanne Cash:
“The key to change . . . is to let go of fear.”


Life changes can only be done by you.

No matter how good the book, the course, the seminar, the lecture, the video; if you don’t take action there will be no change.

No matter how good or bad the material you buy, if you won’t treat and move the feet, nothing changes.

I like these quotes; they sum it up well.

Bruce Barton:
“When you are through changing, you are through.”

Ellen Glasgow:
“The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimension.”
