eSelph is an acronym for a set of principles derived from the teachings of wise educators and life practitioners.
Examples of such teachers are:
· Napoleon Hill in his book Outwitting the Devil
— Hill’s other books such as Think and Grow Rich embed these same principles;
· Tony Robbins in Awaken the Giant Within;
· Steven Covey in The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People;
– Richard Bandler in Get the life you Want
· and many other works by these and other thinkers over the ages.
The eSelph acronym derives from the
ESPs (Empowering Self Principles) of:
e – Empowering Self:
Giving permanency to positive thought habits and developing wisdom;
S – Self Discipline:
Stay focused and on course. Executing with caution so as to think through things before moving forward as opposed to
e – Environment:
Acting with definiteness of purpose to become the dominating influence in my own mental, spiritual, and physical environment, including choosing my supporting associations;
l – Learn from experience:
Not allowing failure to define me but instead learn from experience, both positive and negative, and keep moving forward;
p – Purpose:
Definiteness of knowing what I want and going after it;
h – Harmony:
Creating the right habits in my life to create harmony and flow.
Empowering Self is the core of Invest in My Self
Practitioners of the eSPs (eSelph principles) reach their goals in spite of the obstacles the may occur. These same obstacles cause others to dwell on negative feelings such as fear, anger, procrastination, and jealousy that can enter their mind and keep them from reaching their goals. The greatest obstacles to success are in our minds.
The greatest cause of our success is the ability to control our emotions – transforming possible negative reactions to conditions into positive feelings and constructive thoughts.
To realize this control, we can invest in ourselves. To make this more powerful – since we are speaking to your unconscious mind, is to make it personal:
Invest in My Self, rather than a dissociated statement such as Invest in Yourself. Taking ownership with feeling is a primary key to consistent practice of the principles. Learn more powerful and empowering ways of thinking and feeling. Feel positive feelings even more powerfully to enhance the pleasures of life. Diminish or eliminate the negative feelings that get in the way of a more fulfilling life, now.

Learn powerful techniques for controlling thoughts and feelings to enrich life. These techniques are largely from NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and include any other techniques that are synergistic or may bring about faster or more lasting change.
What is NLP? Briefly, it is the study of excellence and how to learn from excellent behavior to teach it to others. Phrased another way:
NLP is an attitude and a methodology that leaves a trail of empowering techniques.
- The attitude is curiosity and experimentation.
- The methodology is modeling of excellent behavior.
- The techniques are numerous and have a history of self empowerment.
What is Self? There are many concepts of Self – we prefer to keep it simple and just use whatever it means to you. Some others have said:
Self is a person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
NLP, meditation, proper exercise and rest, and other manners of behavior can be empowering our Self to live a more fulfilling life and, hopefully, to enhance the lives of others who are willing to make changes that they want.
Some of these possible behavior changes for your Self are as described in the book (in work) Invest in My Self: The Magic 20 Minutes +/- 5.

- What is a system? What is a software system?
- What will the system do?
- Why will the system do what it does?
- Who or what will use the system?
- How will the system be used – explicitly? How does the system start? What will the system provide – and to whom/what? What does the system need to support what it does? How does the system shut down? How is the system maintained/fixed/updated/improved/replaced/retired?
Primarily, what will the user(s) of a system get from that system, and
how will we know that the system is doing that?
- What is the primary goal of the system?
- What other goals must the system meet?
