There’s only one person who can help you

Help yourself

What this paradoxical maxim implies is that no one but yourself can basically help you, and that unthinking devotion to a master, a guru or cult has great limitations.

To improve, you have to think for yourself and take suitable, self-changing risks yourself.

The corollary is also true with teaching (and parenting). You cannot teach anything, but everything can be learnt. Teaching is just facilitating this process of learning. The real guru is the one who awakens the guru in his students, creates curiosity to learn and inspires to improve.

The only person who can help you is… wait for it…wait for it…wait for it… is YOU!
