Self Aid Success Stories Radio Show with Helen Woo
Helen Woo was born to a traditional Chinese family who immigrated to America. Throughout her life, she overcame many challenges including low self-esteem, depression, mental and physical abuse, drug addiction, betrayal and financial loss. Now, as a single mother, Helen feels her life is just beginning. She is here to share her success stories, and encourages others to flourish by making positive changes in their lives, too. After all, we all have a success story in us! Part of Helen's mission in life is to help others triumph over their challenges.
Helen Woo uses “Self-Aid” to talk about overcoming low self-esteem, abuse, depression, addiction, betrayal, and reminds all that forgiveness and letting go of the baggage (anger and resentment) is important to self-improvement.
Recently, one of Helen’s favorite speech topics is: “Is Laughter the Best Medicine”? She talks about the benefits of laughter and how it applies to our personal and business life. Helen’s main goal is to encourage and inspire at least one person in a positive way, to help make a positive difference. She wants to be a reminder that WE are capable of helping ourselves through the many struggles that we encounter in life.
Helen Woo facetiously claims that she is the Chinese Ellen Degeneres.
Helen is grateful to Ellen Degeneres, as Ellen was the inspiration and support for Helen's recovery from depression years ago.
S= SELF AID -- One step at a time... We start by recognizing that we can improve, that we can get well, and that we can be better in every aspect of our lives. Self-Aid is necessary, as we cannot help anyone else until we help ourselves first.
E = ESTEEM -- With self-esteem and confidence, we also find strength to be able to face life's challenges. This is the beginning of achieving success.
L = LOVE -- Self-love is vital to our existence. Self-love enables us to give and receive love. LOVE is the main ingredient to finding happiness.
LAUGHTER -- Laughter makes us happy, laughter keeps us healthy. Laughter is more contagious than a cough or a virus. Laughter benefits us in more ways than one... Scientically proven, laughter helps us emotionally, physically, and mentally. Without a doubt, laughter is the best medicine.
(Inspired by Ellen Degeneres, Helen's last comment each week is: "Laugh a little, laugh a lot. Just don't forget to Laugh.")
