The western world is saturated with self-help literature, self-proclaimed gurus, and nonsensical material attempting to manipulate you into following their "best" methods. If you spend any time on social media the amount of content created to inspire and motivate you seems to be an up an established trend. This stuff is everywhere.
If you feel like it, take a moment and walk through a bookstore, scroll through some podcasts, or just check out the entrepreneurial community online a bit, and you will blatantly see that the self-help community appears to be running rampant. It is as though humankind has a desire to improve itself in life consistently. I find this expectation and culture a bit odd and attractive all at the same time. Self-help and self-improvement are ideas I enjoy and the people that come with them I appreciate as well.
