Do you remember your first self-help book?
Mine was How Full is your Bucket? by Tom Rath.
I read it at the tender age of 13 and it is the reason I love self-help books so much today.
The book teaches you how it truly is the everyday interactions with those around you that determines how you respond to the good and bad circumstances of life.
- Every positive interaction adds a drop to your bucket.
- Every negative interaction dips (takes away) from your bucket.
Looking back now, nothing Rath discussed was earth shattering, but it was presented in such a unique way that I was fascinated.
Plus, Rath had 40+ years of research from Gallup Polls and his stories were mesmerizing.
Did I mention that he gave readers access to his Strength Finders test?
What about the cool resources to help implement the new information?
This nerdy chick, way back when, fell in love with self-help books and I’m still a bit starry eyed today.
If you want to wax nostalgic with me, give the book a read (it’s on hold for me at the library).
And if you want me to wax nostalgic with you, let me know the title of your first self-help book.
