Self-Help

selfhelp Self-Help is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.

It is an act or an instance of helping or improving oneself without assistance from others. It is also the practice of solving one’s problems by joining or forming a group designed to help those suffering from a particular problem.

Self Help Techniques: Reprogram your sub conscious mind;

Our mind is made up of two parts, the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind makes up only 10% of the mind and controls such things as rational/logical thought. The subconscious mind makes up 90% of the mind and stores habits and beliefs, memory, personality, self-image and such things.

It is estimated that we are bombarded with more than ten thousand external stimuli every day. Imagine what a difficult task our mind must have in dealing with so many stimuli. An important factor to bear in mind is that the conscious mind uses the information stored in the subconscious mind, for example beliefs, as one of the programs to run your life. So, for effective personal growth it is necessary to change the beliefs, i.e. it is necessary to reprogram the subconscious mind.

Setting goals and achieving them is an important step in self-help and self-development. It helps you become an achiever and raises your self- esteem.

Affirmations are simple, straightforward statements of positive action or a declaration of your current status. We repeat affirmations over and over again so that the subconscious mind starts believing them as true. It then moulds your actions to suit your thoughts, which takes you nearer to the life of your desires.

Creative Visualization is probably the most powerful life changing tool. You simply visualize, or see in your mind’s eye, the kind of life you desire. Do this again and again till your subconscious mind starts believing it as true and make you act to bring it about.

Hypnosis is yet another way of bypassing the conscious mind and influencing the subconscious mind to change your life for the better. And you don’t even need a hypnotist for that! There are ready made tapes and CDs on almost all topics.
