It’s not a big secret, Americans are glum about their futures. A recent Pew Research Study shows that most Americans are worried about money, their futures, and the direction of the country. All of this makes for a pretty gloomy outlook on life. However many of us are doing what we can to pull ourselves out of this funk.
At $10.4 Billion (with a B), the self-help market show no signs of decline. We are all looking for a solution to what troubles us. And we are willing to spend LOTS of money on the problem.
But I would argue that much of that money is wasted and we would be better served by following a simple plan to not only pull ourselves out of the emotional tailspin, but to really get the most out of our daily lives.
