Despite their popularity, self-help books are often hit or miss. Nine times out of 10, you wind up wasting time reading information you already knew.
But every once in a while, you stumble upon that one book that you fill with annotations and sticky notes because — holy hell — it's just jam-packed with a ton of tips you can actually use IRL.
Maybe Lois P. Frankel's advice on using 5% of your day to build relationships motivated you to step away from your desk and mingle more with coworkers.
Or perhaps you reaaally re-evaluated your friendships after Timothy Ferriss explained why you shouldn't underestimate the bad qualities of your best friends.
Or maybe Aliza Licht's note on climbing the metaphorical ladder of life really drove home why it's important to always be nice to others.
So tell us what self-help book quote was most useful to you. The book can be about love, work, wellness, family — literally anything! Be sure to include the title of the book and the author. You may be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video.
