What is “Self Help” anyway?

Is it a way to get slimmer?  Stronger? Smarter? Or Richer?  Or is self help actually that persistent yearning we have for our Soul?

When I first learned that Raymond Aaron walked to the North Pole, I was mightily impressed.  When I listened further and heard the story of how he trudged over 350 miles across polar bear-infested snowdrifts pulling a heavy sled with supplies . . . and won the race as a 62-year-old(!) I about fell out of my chair!

“Now” I mused, “that may not be much self help for the body, what it does for the SOUL is immeasurable!”

I knew then and there I had much to learn from him.  Needless to say, I immediately signed up for his Monthly Mentor Program, STOPPED procrastinating, and started accomplishing some amazing things.  I set up my blog, finished my book, started a radio program,and started riding a UNICYCLE after quitting over 40 years ago!!

. . . and I still have much yet to accomplish!  Thanks to Raymond Aaron.

Raymond Aaron hits the nail on the head with this presentation. You can get much more information at



Starting 2010, I’m getting organized!!

How many of us made THAT resolution?  Probably more than a few.  But how many actually accomplished this task? (I only hear crickets . . .)

For once in a long time, I can actually say I cleaned up my desk, organized my files, and even got stuff done I’ve been putting off in my business for years . . . from just doing the steps outlined in Raymond Aarons’ program, The Monthly Mentor. It is a phenomenal program where he takes you from zero to happy in about 18 months! Right now he’s even offering his book for free – for just the cost of postage and handling.  Check it out.

Also – FYI – I recently ran across a program by Lance Tamashiro and Robert Plank, a couple of Internet marketing geniuses who also offer a structured program to dramatically increase your productivity and reduce overwhelm.  While I have not taken their program, I’ve heard Lance and Robert speak on occasion, and was duly impressed.  I’ve also heard other small business people who say they swear by these guys.

Their course – IM Productivity Secrets – is geared mostly to Internet Marketers, but can be extremely helpful for you if you own a small business.

In the last two blog posts, I wrote about the uncanny power of our own mental potential, and about how our weakest link is our CONSCIOUS MIND. This post is about how to strengthen this weakest link without going through a lot of psycho-analysis, self-help courses and books.

Enjoy . . . and USE it!


Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor

Happy Pearl Harbor Memorial Day. This is the day that America made a decision to go to war . . . and finished that monumental task in fine fashion (at least from our point of view!). We set a goal and accomplished it.

On a lesser note, this is also the day that marks only 17 shopping Days ‘til Christmas!

Are you out looking for that special gift for that special someone?  Or are you, like me, waiting until the very last minute and ordering online, hoping to get that thing in before the US Mail decides to shut down on the 24th?  Assuming the Postman decides NOT to cater to our whim, we have a “contingency plan” of begging and blaming, i.e., give her a card with sincere apologies along the words “Well it SHOULD have been here by now…”

I notice we all do it – sabotage our success. But why?  The road to success is not easy, but really quite simple.  As the lesson of Pearl Harbor taught us, just finish what you start.

“It’s not what you do in life that counts; it’s what you finish.” – Kathryn Hepburn

Oh, there are plenty of excuses (and lots of blame to throw around) but why would we bother to agree to something and proceed NOT to finish or do it properly?  Is it laziness?  Inherent stupidity?  Are we at the whim of a vengeful God?  Or are we just overwhelmed with possibilities, don’t know how to say “no,” and forget what we agreed to??

I vote the last one. Remember the story of the dog with the bone in his mouth?  He was standing on a bridge staring into his own reflection in the water.  He wanted SO BADLY to get that OTHER dog’s bone that he dropped the one he had in his mouth to jumps into the water to get the other one.

Like that, we make a snap – mostly reflexive – decision about some item that we feel should be on our agenda, then jump before we realize it is all part of our own illusion.  This promised “bone” is very seductive, if only because it is new and fresh.  It could be a

  • “once-in-a-lifetime money-making opportunity,”
  • “must have” new pair of bejeweled jeans, or a
  • lover who “gets us” so much better than our existing mate.

Whatever the reason to jump ship, cut short our existing project or commitment, or just spread ourselves too thin, is it so important that we give up our very center?  Our peace of mind?  I think not.

Part of a complete “mental detox” program is to actually DECIDE (consciously, not subconsciously) that a particular course of action is worthwhile . . . then proceed to finish it NO MATTER WHAT.

By doing this even a few times, you will build up the mental strength (i.e., habit) to continue doing this over and over again.  Then you know what?  You WILL accomplish your goals.  You WILL gain that elusive peace of mind.

“But Dr. Craig, what if I decide half-way through that this course of action is a waste of time and counter productive?”

Hey, if you REALLY feel it is that way, then quit. Be aware, however, that every time you start something and quit, you are driving another nail into your own “success coffin” and weakening the mental strength you would need to finish other, more important project!

Do this simple exercise: If you have trouble completing goals – say finishing a whole book – make a very small one, like reading two pages by next week.  Then DO IT.  Then set another goal, i.e, read 3 pages before another week.  Then do that!

Before you know it, one of two things will happen – either you will complete what you set out to do, or you will do MORE than you set out to do, get bored, and do even more!

I did and it made a HUGE difference in my ability to accomplish my goals.  With the help of Raymond Aaron, I set out last May to ride my new unicycle 3 miles in one month.  Now I ride almost 3 miles per day, and I did this by setting (and completing) very small goals each time.

Try it for 3 weeks, long enough to establish this action as a new habit.  Then write me to say how it went!

Hey Raymond! 

Stop fooling around and get your $%#@& Unicycle out of storage!  I started riding because of you, so hey!  What gives?

They say that you never forget how to ride a bicycle.  I guess “they” can add “Unicycling” to that list of unforgetable skills, because this 56-year-old guy apparently didn’t. 

Unicycle rideThe last time I rode a unicycle was before 1970, about 40 years ago.  I hung up my wheel after years of being labeled a weirdo and show off.  Since I don’t have any need to avoid such labels these days, I figured I’d make a go of it once again, especially since mentor Raymond Aaron gave me permission by publicly stating he was one of us weirdos.     

But this whole unicycle thing was harder than I thought.  First, I had to buy a new one because my old 24-inch Lizzie had (almost) breathed its last tire-breath.  A 29-inch one-eyed road warrior is my new ticket to adventure, and I wanted to take her out for a spin right away.  I had already made an outrageous goal of riding five miles before June 1st, and the month was almost over. 

The first thing I experienced after sharing my goal with Soma of riding the unicycle cornerCherohala Skyway on a unicycle next year was calmness.  Having spent years using the Logical Soul technique to process through all my “stuff” such as low self-esteem, fear, procrastination and other forms of self-sabotage, I felt really confident making such a bold declaration.  I know I can do it . . . and will! 

The first outing was unsensational, but rewarding.  Tuesday, May 19th I was able to keep my balance and tool on down the highway (in a local public park) with a minimum of spills.  One mile down, four to go.  So far so good. 

unicycle joyThe next day I did my second mile, although I started to feel my age on the uphill grades.  My wife Soma took these pics of me after a full day’s work on a a house renovation.  I slept well that night, despite some throbbing in the left knee. 

Two miles down, three to go…

I worked a full day on Friday, then came home and hopped on my unicycle in front of my house, just to ride to the corner of the block as I did the first day. 

Big mistake.  I immediately felt wobbly and crashed after only 200 feet downDown the Road the road, plowing my head into the asphalt.  It was REALLY good I had my helmet on . . . a blow like that would have sent me to the hospital for sure!

Needless to say, I didn’t continue the ride.  I figured out that a state of exhaustion where I can barely walk is not the best time to do a rolling balancing act!  Besides, I had quite a headache afterwards and decided to wimp out and head for the showers. I’ve got another week to log three more miles. 

Unicycle Sunset


I’ll be better prepared this weekend.
