Self Transformation

The process of Self-transformation is simply A 4 step cycle of :-

  1. Self-Awareness – “Know Yourself” physically, mentally and (optionally) spiritually
  2. Self-Awakening – reflect upon social problems being mindful of your situation and the situation of many others that may need your help or who may be able to enlighten you in your life experiences by drawing upon their success strategies
  3. Self-Activation – motivate yourself into an Action Plan for both taking better care of yourself and caring for others less fortunate
  4. Self-Accountability – monitor progress with your Action Plan and be responsible for your own successes and failure by learning from these in your progressing your self-transformation journey of a lifetime in making better informed decisions for your next challenge(s)

Simply described, but not always so simple to achieve!   Why?   Generally the perceived pain to change and help YOURSELF is most often seen to be greater than the pain in persevering with a current problem.   And the perceived future benefits are seen to be out-weighed by the sensory pleasures of instant gratification being experienced now.   Changing bad habits requires a mindset shift and adoption of a better strategy proven to solve such problems.   That’s why its not that simple!

Saying “If you don’t like what you are doing now, then stop doing it!”  or “If you know what the solution is, just do it” (Nike-style) may all sound very simple and appear to be sound advise, but not when there is a mindset issue involved with a stubborn old habit that just cannot be broken (like loosing weight, stop smoking, etc.   Most smokers and obese people are well aware of the huge health and social problems arising from their bad habit but their fear of the perceived pain in giving up their addiction (is mostly in the mind) and of delayed gratification always wins. Despite all the compelling evidence from all those who have completed this journey successfully.

Below is a brief summary of the vision behind the YourSelf Helper website, free for use by ordinary people and sponsored by specialists known for caring more for others (like yourself) than themselves and for devising successful strategies, tools and techniques for solving such problems.

Being mindful that I’m no expert in the many big hard problems being faced by people like yourself and society generally,  I have gathered together some place-holder samples describing my impressions on how a properly supported Self-Transformation process can make a serious contribution towards solving such challenging problems.    How do I know this to be so?   Because most of these problems are known to be “Self-inflicted” and thereby are open to the possibility of being “Self-preventable” and “Self-correctable” over time.   Big hard problems like:-

  • Obesity & type-2 Diabetes
  • eHealth Management (Aged care, Home-care, Self-Diagnosis)
  • Inequalities (in Wealth Distribution, Women, Culture)
  • Addictions (to Drugs, Alcohol, Gambling, Pornography)
  • Broken Democracies & Corruption (in Government, Media, Interest Groups, Financial Institutions)
  • Population Growth and Environmental Pollution (of Air, Land and Water)
  • Education
  • IT Innovation
  • Energy Management

The erroneous habits of ordinary people all contribute to what are the biggest social problems being faced by mankind today.   Yet solutions to these self-inflicted problems elude us today.

Whereas, other social issues not necessarily self-inflicted but Circumstantial problems like the:

  • Poor
  • Homeless
  • Sick
  • Disabled
  • Disadvantaged
  • Unemployed
  • Elderly
  • Refugee
  • Mentally-ill
  • Lonely, Depressed, Anxious,   etc.

The YourSelf Helper website is designed with all these types of problems in mind.
