With the seemingly endless river of new personal development books flowing from publishers each year and the vast amount of shelf space devoted to self-improvement in bookstores and online warehouses, some psychology writers wonder if people interested in the topic of self-help are addicted to finding the ultimate self-actualization system.

Maybe that’s true.

But perhaps, and more likely, those of us interested in personal growth are simply looking to add to our self-actualization toolbox, and are not necessarily looking for an entirely new set of tools.

For some people, finding new approaches and ideas on personal growth is somewhat like a hobby and a new book, video, or pod cast on personal development adds to their enjoyment.

As with complex disciplines in general, personal improvement does not lend itself to one perfect system fitting all cases.

I think most of us realize that, or should.
