To use a dictionary Definition: Self help is the action or process of bettering oneself or overcoming one's problems without the aid of others; especially: the coping with one's personal or emotional problems without help from a professional.
Self help, by choice or necessity is about taking the required steps on your own to improve your physical or emotional state and therefore your external circumstances. Be they your relationships, financial matters or physical wellbeing.
So in the broadest sense, self-help is 'playing the game of living'. And by playing I mean getting actively involved in the process of continuous self-improvement.
