Why self help and prosperity?

In today's post I'd like to explain why this is called the "self help and prosperity blog". I'd just like to take a bit of time to explain my philosophy for putting up this blog.

10 years ago I decided to start two websites one devoted to self esteem and the other devoted to depression. The reason I chose these two subjects was that I had suffered from depression over many years and decided to do something positive about it. On the one hand it was a bit of self therapy and an attempt to help others as I also tried to put the problem into my own words and analyse what problems I had been facing. Self-esteem came from some thought into Happiness. A website discussing happiness in itself was just far too general so I decided specifically that self-esteem was central to everything we do and everything we think about ourselves. I believe that it was central to our behaviour and our motivation and as a result every achievement depended on your level of self-esteem as did your level of happiness.

So why have I called this blog self help and prosperity?

Well I thought it was very important to try to improve yourself not only internally but also physically. What I mean is that self improvement is one thing, highly important of course, and I believe that we need to do this all the time. But if we're talking about self help and improving yourself then surely prosperity is another important factor which you should seek to improve.

The whole point of this blog then is to discuss in particular subjects such as self-esteem, depression and wider issues such as improving yourself financially. In particular, my aim is to show you ways to earn cash online and improve your prosperity through the freedom that Internet online earning brings because I believe this is a natural extension of self improvement and personal growth.

So what can you expect to see on this blog?

  1. Do you think it is a good idea to discuss prosperity with self help or should these subjects be seperated? Let me have your comments please...
