Personal Development is Much More than Self-Help | Linda Deir -author, speaker, transition coach, trainer

“Personal development is sometimes called self-help.

So, is helping someone else also called self-help? We would like to think so. Self-help and helping someone else has the same effect on the person helping. Whether you are improving yourself or helping someone else you are, indeed, improving yourself. Therefore, self-help is not just a singular action; it can also be a shared action. People gain just as much from helping others as they gain from helping themselves.

Self-help is also experimental to find what works and what doesn’t.

By experimenting, we mean that you should read or listen to a self-help book, go to a seminar, or join a group. Experimenting with different avenues of self-help can lead you to find what works best for you.

Loving…Self-help and improvement must be done lovingly. You should take great care to not be too hard on yourself or expect results in others too quickly. You can’t rush improvement as it is not an end result goal; it is a process. Being too hard on yourself can make you not want to continue the process.

Fulfilling…The results you experience should be fulfilling. You should feel good about the improvement and like what you see and feel. If you do not like the results you are getting you must go back a step or two and experiment with different kinds of self-help methods.

Healing…Your results should also be healing. Your improvement program should strive for healing, abundance, and peace in your life. These three things are the opposite of sickness, lack, and torment in your life. These results also need to be experiential. You must experience continued change in order for that improvement to become implanted into your routine.

Goal…Your goal is to strive for improvement that happens unconsciously because you have found the right method, are doing it for the right reasons, and have incorporated improvement into your life’s routine. Once these routines are in place, the self-help and improvement become long-term.

You must live a life of continuous improvement in order to realize your potential as a being.

Lastly, the routine of self-development and improvement is perpetual. It is on-going in your life and is an example to others who may need your help to improve.” SUMMARY:

  • For several decades people have been consumed with consuming. Many felt that improving their lives meant acquiring more things, making more money and flaunting their success. These types of people now need to learn how to help someone else so they can restrain themselves.
  • You can never discover who you are when things and money are in the way.
  • Never justify the pain in your life. That is what keeps you stuck on your path.   

How It Works: A balanced life is healing, abundant, and peaceful. But many people are sick, lacking, and tormented. What happened? People have been so far out of balance for so long that now they have swung the other way. They sought what they thought was abundance. They chased money but not abundance. They had money but were not at peace in their life. They had wealth but not a healing lifestyle. The opposite of healing is sickness, the opposite of abundance is lack, and the opposite of peace is torment. People need to focus on improving all areas equally and forget about chasing an isolated result. ~ Linda Deir
