Self-help is help from within. You are a creative genius, and you can use that inner resourcefulness to empower and help your self to a better life. If you have already read my creativity ideas and free articles on unleashing your creative genius, you will appreciate that the spirit of self-help and personal development runs strongly through them. It's no secret that I believe that you contain and embody everything you need to live to your fullest potential, happiness and bliss.

Self-help is a broad term that encompasses the best qualities of pragmatism, resourcefulness and the ability to cope with any problem and rise to any challenge. The Victorian writer, Samuel Smiles voiced this term and spirit in his book "Self Help" which was a rallying cry to the more unfortunate people of Victorian Great Britian. Through the many examples he gave of famous people of the day who had overcome great odds to achieve fame and success, he sought to give encouragement and exhort others to follow this example. Others, notably Margaret Thatcher's right hand man,  Norman Tebbit, have echoed this sentiment by calling on the unemployed to "get on your bike!"

The spirit of self-help and personal development thrived amongst the American pioneers, and explains why this country, more than any other, has embraced and perpetuated the theme of self-help and personal growth so enthusiastically. And reaped the rewards of self-improvement so successfully!

I have compiled a SELF-HELP page that outlines the various resources available on the web for self improvement and personal growth. We have split these resources into different sections depending upon the area that you are most interested in.

If you find any other relevant self-help websites, please feel free to contact us and tell us about them! Self-development calls upon your personal inner genius, and ultimately the only resource you need is a little confidence in your own creativity to come up with the answers you need. If you want to get the full lowdown on bootstrapping your creativity, genius and super brainpower why don't you check out my creative genius articles? They give you the edge!

Top 10 Personal Development Trainers

1. Jim Rohn - a man of 100% solid integrity whose teaching has inspired and continues to inspire millions of people to help themselves to a better life - a life of quality, values and success.

2. Brian Tracy - is a self-help automaton! And that's a good thing. He is like a production line for high quality, usable, practical, tried and tested personal development information. I realy admire him for living by the very principles that he teaches. There is no gush here, just pragmatic, workable info to keep you on track for fulfilling the potential of your life.

3. Tony Robbins - a giant in every sense, Tony Robbins is the Captain America cum Superman of Personal Development and success coaching. Nobody beats him for adding energy and oomph to your quest for personal development. Probably the greatest populariser of NLP, he's has made it accessible to everyone. His teachings on controlling / utilising your emotional state are pure gold.

4. Denis Waitley - I like Denis Waitley. He's supposed to be the most successful personal development trainer (I read somewhere). I find him inspiring but not that useful. Let me qualify that by admitting that I haven't listened to any of his latest materials. Those that I do have, I enjoyed but nothing particularly "stuck"!

5. Stuart Wilde - Stuart Wilde doesn't really belong amongst a list of personal development trainers, however it's my list so I'll put him where I like! His brand of iconoclastic humor, new age can-do and fake-it-til-you-make-it warrior spirit will empower you faster than most "physical reality focussed" teachers can ever hope to do.

6. Mark Victor Hansen - Half a bowl of Chicken soup and a stick of dynamite! I love MVH's largesse, wild approach and generous vision. Teamed up with Robert Allen to give the world One Minute Millionaire! And the Chicken Soup For The Soul series continues to bless and inspire millions of lives.

7. Louise Hay - You Can Heal Your Life, her foundation product is a pivotal self-help tool that allows you to recognise yourself as a creator in your life. Overcome physical diseases, challenges and problems to create  the life of your dreams.

8. Robert Kiyosaki - Rich Dad, Poor Dad author and speaker Robert Kiyosaki teaches people to empower their financial lives by steadily building and acquiring assets - a fundamental and essential theme for personal development.

9. Stephen Covey - another man of diamond integrity; I personally find that Covey's language requires more chewing to digest its meaning than some of the more pop culture personal development teachers. His message focusses on fundamental principles and values and you feel a connection to the very bedrock of America when reading his works. 

10. Napoleon Hill - posthumously still an enormously powerful personal development guide. Probably an inspiration at some time or another to every single personal development trainer alive today. From his classic Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill set a standard that others to this day struggle to come near. Unmissable. 

Non-runner: Help yourself by avoiding Dr Phil McGraw! What was Oprah thinking when she let him on her show. Now he's unstoppable. Aaaaaggghhh! Wily Jr saw him on TV and got very upset, asking: Who's that horrible angry man? :-))

Open Circles - This Dutch self-help site offers various personal development trainings in Europe. Seminars have good titles and I'm sure they are enjoyable.  Go Now!
