What is Self Help
George Carlin on self help:
This type of reality shock may be a turning point where you discover that you have to depend on you.
The turning point for most of us comes when we realize we can improve our lot in life. The moment we accept that we are not controlled by outside events; rather, we are dominated by your own thoughts and actions.
It is at this point in time that most of us turn to some sort of self help.
Webster defines self help as the action or process of bettering oneself or overcoming one’s problems without the aid of others. Changing ones self.
The Four Types of Self Help.
Self help can be designated as one of four types:
1. The AHA or epiphany moment - where a person has a dramatic moment of absolute clarity and direction. Their life pivots and is never the same.
2. One on one help comes when you feel you can no longer handle the situation alone, you can no longer keep everything inside.
3. Group interaction. Groups emphasize face to face interaction.
4. Individual self help can be accomplished by reading and reeducating your self. You gain clarity into a problem or situation and overcome it by yourself.
The term, self help, refers to any measure used to improve mental, physical, financial or spiritual conditions. By means of books or other reference materials.
It is the act of providing help for oneself without assistance from others.
Individual self help emphasizes change done by oneself, like coping with one’s personal or emotional problems without professional help.
I’ve personally participated in all four types. They are all beneficial.
I still attend meetings, conduct individual and group sessions and write self help Ebooks. Don’t limit yourself to any one.
Self help is the acquiring of information for the solving of one’s problems. Those of a psychological nature, without direct supervision of professionals or experts. Independent reading, joining lay groups pertaining to your problem.
Read a book, an article, or take a home study course that offers information or counseling intended to be personally beneficial or profitable IE: self help books.
The best way to bring about change and self improvement is to begin.
Albert Einstein said:
The healthy spirit of self help serves to raise people from despair.
It advances them in intelligence, virtue, and spiritual growth.
Four actions you need to take before you set out on the road to self help:
Whichever type or types of self help you choose it should:
Apply what you learn and make real the life you’ve always dreamed of living.
Too often we limit ourselves. How sad, when we could learn to live extraordinary lives.
We can be happier, healthier, and more prosperous. Find your source(s) of self help and go for it.
