    Funny I have never read any self help books or articles. I have overcome my struggles myself. For example I would become depressed certain times of the year,well I came to realize that it was the same time my first husband died also I was in a terrible car accident inwhich my best friend died right next to me so I would become depressed this time also. I never dwelled on their deaths it was my subconsious going thru the motions, it is funny how the mind works.

    LOL,I did have a fear of snakes that I overcame by learning how to dance with one (bellydance I had a back injury that the doctors were amazed that this helped,it's not fixed, it will never be but I have given it enough strength to function ) I got her when she was only 12 inches long,I could barely look at her without getting the hebbie jebbies, it would take me like five times of putting my hand in the cage to even pick her up. The last time I danced with her she was just about 8ft long,what a beauty plus I could hand feed her.

    I'm finally at a point where I want to self help myself financially so I have been just wondering thru these threads.

      Some of us have that kind of thing come to them naturally. I can certainly relate to that. Alethia, you're probably more in a position to teach others.

      As for me, my best topics are:

      Happiness
      Motivation
      Spirituality
      Affirmations
      Attraction
      Goals
      Leadership
      Public Speaking
      Spirituality
      Subconscious Mind

      At least those are the ones I really enjoy writing about.

        Hey Dantplayer

        Well said. I too enjoy all your topics. I am into public speaking too. But don't really read about it or study. Coz public speaking comes natural to me. Too natural.

        But,.......2 days ago. I was thinking about it and decided that I will need to begin reading about public speaking. I know I will learn a lot

        Thanks

    Spirituality is something I have been working on for a while. There is so much to learn sometimes it can be overwhelming.I like reading about the Hopi, did you know that they are on the exact opposite position on earth as the Tibetian Monks. Also that the Hopi word for hate is the Tibetian word for love and Hopi word for love is the Tibetian word for hate. How did that happen?

      Waal Alethia, You just taught me something here. I actually wrote something about the tibetians but didn't know "Nada" about the Hopi.

      As for you Alethia at least you have the ability to cope. There are so many people who will never recover from what you went through. They will play that VICTIM MENTALITY of how there is NO GOD, life is not fair, why did these things happen to me mwa mwa mwa......mwa

      But, you see in life we can't dwell on the past. we have to concetrate with the future.

      And your future should always be seen as bright and nothing else. Thanks for your contibutions Alethia. Hey, I will also check out about the Hopi.

    Great post Alethia. You found everything that you need within yourself. You are now a new person with new qualities and resources and don't have to remember something you read. Congratulations.

      Hey Thomas, great contribution. Many people don't know how equipped and knowledgeable they are. Sometimes we just need to calm down, relax and "go inside"...if you know what i mean. We do have answers within.

      Hahaha......Sticking me in the desert would be right up my alley,I've been teaching myself and children how to survive off the land,though the desert would be a definite challenge.Infact we are turning the main part of my property into a permaculture,we have plenty of homegrown meat,chickens,hair sheep and goats, now we need to get the vegetation going. It's a long slow process hopefully before my life is over it will be going strong, in any case it will always be here for my children and their children.

    Time management and focus. Those may not fit into what most people consider self help, but I find they're essential to any kind of long term achievement.

    For me it will have to be goal setting and focus. I tend to stray all the time and not get things done. It feels so bad whenever my day ends and I realized that all I did was search and read stuff.

    maybe you can add planning on that.

        Hi Hesaidblissfully

        Time Management & Focus are part of self. Definately 100%. You know, after visualising and staff, you need to be organized and committed, otherwise mind harnessing won't take you to your dream alone.

        Hi J Mendez

        Yes, Goal setting and Focus are important. From experience, everytime I lie to myself and say, I don't have to write down my goals, I will remember them cause I was clever, I ended up being distracted and lose focus of what I intended to do in the first place. So it's important to write goals down, set time frames for accomplishment, use timers, etc.....that will keep you focused.

        Taz,

        All those that you mention are very helpful. But, if you are looking to make money online, my thinking is the one that has been most useful to me is "The Emotional System" And, I'll give you my reason. The way humankind is constructed they can't make a decision with the rational mind.They can only make a decision with their emotions.



        Jimmy.

          Hi Jimmy

          Thanks for your contribution. Yes, Emotions are major contributors to what happens to us or how we react. But remember we still have that voice of reason, that aid us with help in making decisions as to which emotional states we should be in. That is the rational Mind from your perspective.

          If you are feeling highly angry, the voice of reason knows it's wrong so it really tells you not to be. But your will is then needed as to whether you should give in to that emotion, or listen to the voice of reason. But we can make decisions from the voice of reason as to which emotional states we should accommodate.

          Thanks

            Hi Mari

            You hit the spot there. Gurus like Tony Robbins are only there to motivate you so that you yourself can initiate the change.

            Change is feasible when you are ready to change!

        We are a bunch of belief system competing for domination. That is our world, our reality. Which belief system of yours is dominating at this moment - positive or negative? If your positive belief system is dominant then you feel positive most of the time. Your world is a positive one and positive things will happen in your life.

        If your world is dominated with negative belief system, then you need to learn to identify, isolate and get rid of the negative belief system to make your world a positive one.

        Transformation comes in different form to different people, because everyone is unique.

        For some it might be book or article, a life changing incident, a guru, a meditation technique or some other technique. You have to try some and find out what works for you best.

          Great post Success4all. Cheers for that. I totally agree with you. Now I just wish, people can totally register this in their minds, that they have to cleanse themselves from negative associations if they want any good in their lives.

          Let us make our world a better place.

    I think all of us can use a dose self help on a daily basis. In order to succeed in the areas we are lacking we have to apply ourselves in those areas consistently and persistently that's how one can experience progress therefore success through repetition.
    Affirmation,
    Leadership,
    Public Speaking,
    Positive Thinking are the areas I like and want to excel in.

          From an old post in this thread:

          Spirituality is something I have been working on for a while. There is so much to learn sometimes it can be overwhelming.I like reading about the Hopi, did you know that they are on the exact opposite position on earth as the Tibetian Monks. Also that the Hopi word for hate is the Tibetian word for love and Hopi word for love is the Tibetian word for hate. How did that happen?
          I really do not wish to be a "naysayer" (which I am not) but this is untrue. They cannot be on opposite sides of the world as they are both in the "upper half" of the globe. In order to be "exact opposite" of Tibet the Hopis would need to be somewhere south of the equator.

          That being said, I do find the word-thing most interesting. Can you sight a source? I'd like to follow up.

          Regards,
          Dave S.

            Interesting. I too have been thinking about goal-setting lately. I had all these plans, but lately I feel like I'm just floating through life. I guess it's time to sit down, and figure out what I want out of it.

            As far as self-help topics go, I've spent a lot of time reading about persuasion/influence. I've read Cialdini's works and, of course, Dale Carnegie's How To Win Friends And Influence People.

            Speaking of that book, I am currently reading a biography of Warren Buffet, and he was really inspired by Dale Carnegie's book. He also took his public speaking courses back in the day. I've always thought of taking one of these courses.

            Thanks for this thread. Got me thinking.

    I really enjoy reading about the brain, and how it is wired for emotion. Emotion is our heritage, it's our evolution, yet so easily understood by mainstream media.

    I also like to learn about the subconscious, because there is so much that we don't know about it. It's like this giant glacier of consciousness, where we can barely see the tip. What's fun is that cognitive psychology is starting to investigate the subconscious more, with things like priming and suggestion. It's so applicable to self-help, because we need to understand the subconscious if we are to gain conscious control over our lives.

    The buddha says, "To help yourself....help someone else."

    A man asked the famous psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Menninger, "What would you advise a person to do if he felt a nervous breakdown coming on?" Most people expected him to reply, "Consult a psychiatrist." To their astonishment he replied, "Lock up your house, go across the railroad tracks, find someone in need and do something to help that person."

      Great post. That's why we are here in the world you know. To make a difference!

      Problem is many people are waiting to get lots of money to do so. In the process they end up getting frustrated and develop negative emotions up to a point they end up not knowing what is the main purpose of being a human.

      I honestly think this is where self help is going to be honest. I think that most of us know or have read or whatever tons of stuff about goal setting, how the mind works, etc...

      I think the next phase for the self help community is on a spiritual level. We want to connect with our lives, the world, our goals, our dreams, our relationships, and everything else on a deeper more meaningful level, and we are looking for information that will help us do just that.

      The beautiful part is that science is catching up to us with areas such as psychology and quantum physics. The next 20 years of self help should be extremely interesting and I look for a new group of experts and guru's to come out in front based on this spiritual improvement idea.

      Of course I could be wrong, but we will see.

      I personally look for information that allows me to achieve my goals and dreams and become a better person, but in the process, I am looking for a feeling of being connected and improved and more in tune with things including success, animals, trees, life, my wife, my kids, myself, and everything else.

      To get back to a state of being like when I was a kid. When the rain was peaceful, and I could smell it in the air. When I remembered to look at the stars, and felt like a part of it. When the sun on my face was a welcome feeling and I would spend hours feeling it.
      That's awesome man. I even remember those peaceful days when I can smell the rain and have the peace within when I stare at nature.

      Yes self help is going to connect people to spirituality and the works of the spiritual realm

    I think that everybody here already mentioned the most interesting topics.

    For those who are interested in the subconscious mind and its power I would suggest scientific dream interpretation without a doubt, not only because I'm an expert on this field but because when you translate the dream messages you learn what the unconscious mind that produces your dreams is showing you, what means that you are not alone: you discover a wise brain that is constantly protecting you and helping you in all ways.

    This is a combination of forces: the unconscious mind is a natural doctor that depends on the dreamer, because if the dreamer won't follow its directions and put them in practice, nothing has any value. On the other hand, the dreamer will never be able to understand as much as he (or she) does with the help of the unconscious mind, so this is a kind of self-help with constant support.

        Another great topic is FORGIVENESS

        I listed a few quotes Simon Preacher shares on his Twitter Page where he shares motivation and inspiration

        ***************************

        "When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free." - C Ponder

        ***************************
        "There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love." - Bryant H. McGill

        ***************************
        The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~Mahatma Gandhi

        ***************************
        To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. ~Lewis B. Smedes

        ***************************
        Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. ~William Arthur Ward

        ***************************

        Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. ~Paul Boese

        ***********************************

        Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself. ~Harriet Nelson
