Self Help Part 2
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I was recently described as a "self help junkie". Yes I guess I have become that. I reached a point in my life where I knew I needed to make changes. I didn't want to continue on the self-destructive path I was on and wanted real happiness. True happiness comes from within not from external sources so when you start to work on yourself, you attract more positive to you (just as when you are negative, that's what you attract). This isn't intended to make you BLAME yourself...blame is a waste of time and energy. It is intended to point out your responsibility.

My road to recovery started when my neighbour loaned me the book "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson. I mentioned to my therapist that I was reading and enjoying it. She then recommended reading "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne. Instead of getting the book, my significant other got me the DVD. That's when I started to learn about the Law of Attraction and how what you think is what you attract. It was initially hard to accept that I was drawing all this negativity to myself but I was fascinated and wanted to know more. So I purchased "The Missing Secret" by Joe Vitale.

This concept of you attract what you think has been around for many years and can be found in books like "Thought Vibration", "The Science of Getting Rich", and "As a Man Thinketh". These books are now downloadable free (just do a google search) as they are outdated but the concept is still valid.

The Missing Secret gives more information on how to make the Law of Attraction work for you and how to clear your "limiting beliefs"...you know....that little voice in the back of your mind that says things like "You aren't worthy." or "You don't deserve better" and so many other negative things. Recognizing you have these negative beliefs is the first step, then you need to work on “clearing" those beliefs. Joe Vitale has many excellent clearing methods that I use on a daily basis (many times a day) now. The idea is to re-train your subconscious which is where it is all coming from.

From there I progressed into meditation, writing a Success Journal (sometimes just getting out of bed in the morning is a success), one-on-one coaching, listening to subliminal audios and reading more books.

I want to talk about the Success Journal for a bit. Most people think of success as some major accomplishment - new job, promotion, making a million dollars etc. But success can be small things too...like for me telling those closest to me that I love them was not easy...now I tell them every chance I get!

Of course you can't just read the books, watch the videos/movies, and listen to the audios without making an effort to follow the advice. Have an open mind and follow the suggestions. I did (and still am) and I feel better now that I have ever felt in my life (and I've been around for some time)! I have had many comments from family and friends recently on the positive changes they have seen in me.

Speaking of friends and family, they are a very important part of recovery. You need to build a good support system. They may not always agree with everything you do but support and encourage you anyway.

Life isn't about being perfect; it's about having the courage to move forward one step at a time. - Noah St John.

If you would like more information about the books/movies etc that I have mentioned, please see my website: Healthy Mind
