2019 Self-Help Year in Review

At the end of the year, many of us like to reflect on what has happened over the course of the past 12 months. Hence all the year in review countdowns, lists, etc. At SEEK, we’re curious about your experiences with self-help in 2019.

We want to know:

What have been your best and/or worst experiences with self-help/self-improvement in 2019?

Here are some more specific questions to get you thinking about your experiences:

  • Over the past year, did you make use of any self-help resources that were particularly helpful, effective, or even transformational?
  • What did you especially like about this resource?
  • Did you discover a self-improvement resource in a new format? Through a podcast, YouTube channel, phone app, Instagram account, for example? What attracted you to that new resource? 
  • Did you discover any new teacher, book, method that you consider a “keeper,” something to revisit regularly?
  • Did you have any negative experiences or did any of your encounters with self-help this year make you feel uncomfortable?
  • Did you question or criticize a self-improvement teacher? What was the encounter like?
  • Did any self-improvement resource, leader, or event leave you with the feeling that you had been taken advantage of?
  • What else would you like to share about your self-help experiences in 2019?

And here’s a forward-looking question:

What are your biggest questions or concerns about how to approach self-help?

The reason we ask is this: SEEK Safely started with our story. We experienced an unimaginable loss that revealed a problem to us. Facing our loss meant facing that problem, and that is why we created SEEK. But SEEK continues with your story. Your experiences point us in the direction of developments in the industry. Your experiences tell us about self-help teachers doing great things, whom we can look to as a model of positive self-help. Or about concerns that seekers have over how to best stay safe on their improvement journey. Your experiences raise new questions we hadn’t even thought to ask.

If you see value in SEEK’s work, consider your story a gift to us. We so appreciate every comment, question, and story we get from you, the seekers. If you feel you have thoughts to share, comment here or on Facebook. We also appreciate that you may want to share, but not with everyone… so send us an email using the following form.

Thank you for the support!
