I just want to know that, Can you be sued if you just rewrite paragraphs and sentences that sound similar to a self-development self-help articles from a book, if they were the first one to write about it?

It's a bad idea and not very ethical to just rewrite someone else's work and pass it off as your own. And it can indeed lead to being sued. The safest course is to either be original, or cite your sources properly.
