Social media and self-help books make the hustle culture look easy. They use the dopamine of positivity to make you think you can carry on non-stop without thinking. But our vision often doesn’t align with the result.
The self-helps keep rubbing your face about how working hard can help you get the rich level of Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos, but they don't tell that they only got super-rich in their 40s-50s. They did work hard and smart, but they had many failures and obstacles to overcome.
Self-helps are often repetitive copy-paste works from other books, but self-help can't copy-paste philosophy. Philosophy questions the subject to get a clearer answer instead of just touching the surface. They question the what, when, where, who, why, and how.
Philosophy can save you from accepting blindly what people might call "great" or "you need to buy this". It can save you from blind preaching too.
“He (CS Lewis) taught me to look deeper into the millstone than simply the surface. Everything that comes across in life should be examined, not simply accepted. And that includes religion and personal problems.”
Once you have exposed yourself to some philosophy, it's easier to spot the many self-help ads or self-validating posts on social media.
Most people on social media use it for the notifications or to be influencers by showing flashy or luxurious objects. But the truth is that if you want to spot the real businessman, you have to look for older people or people who are humble. From their stories, it is clear that they have been through a lot of stuff and had to swallow their pride.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
