Seven steps to inner peace and optimism.

Ever since I was a high school student, I had this urge to go through self-help and biography books. Initially, the idea was to understand how great people like Abraham Lincoln, Steve Jobs and Richard Branson rose from ashes and contributed in shaping the world we live in today. As life became more complex and real-world problems began to pour in, I found my interests shifting towards exploring solutions to depression and anxiety; which according to the World Health Organisation are faced by, over 300 million people around the world (I).

These are the important aspects that I have comprehended from the work on self-help that I have had the pleasure to read so far. Following these steps (especially during events of great anxiety) can be a tedious task but the effect this shall have on your life is truly promising.

While he was working for eighteen hours a day during the war, Winston Churchill was asked if he was worried about his great responsibilities. Churchill reportedly answered: “I’m too busy.
