Unhealthy Approaches to Personal Development

Some people have unhealthy ways of pursuing personal development. Personal development is a means, not a religion.

  • It is unhealthy when the person becomes a self-help junkie. He buys every self-help book or talks about self-help all the time. Then, he regurgitates the ideas of your favorite motivational speakers as if they are biblical truths.

  • The person is susceptible to self-help fads. He believes in voodoo stuff.
  • The person spends too much time reading about self-improvement but little on acting and performing.
