Improve your “self-talk” with 3 easy steps!
By Richard A. Luck
Did you know that you talk to yourself all day long?
No, not the mental chatter about activities and chores that you need to remember throughout the day. That’s a form of self-talk too – but I’m referring to the things you say to yourself on a regular basis; and more importantly, the tone in which you say them.
When you make a mistake, do you berate yourself angrily? Do you put yourself down or call yourself derogatory names?
When you have a hard time making positive changes in your life, do you bemoan what a “worthless” person you are and conclude that you can’t do anything right?
Negative self-talk can be incredibly damaging to your self-esteem, especially if it’s a big part of your daily life. When you keep saying things like that to yourself, eventually you begin to BELIEVE them!
Highest self-esteem and self-confidence are two of the “keys” to unlocking the door to your desires.
Most often these negative messages begin as statements uttered by the adults in your life when you were a child…. They may have said something negative about you when your actions displeased them, or perhaps they had a habit of saying unkind things even when you didn’t deserve it.
As painful as these experiences can be, even worse is when you pick up where they left off and keep repeating the same negative messages to yourself over and over!
Keep on reading to find out the 3 steps to change your “self-talk”…
The good news is that you can change your “self-talk” any time you want. The first step is to become AWARE of the ‘tone’ of your messages and consciously ‘replace’ them with more encouraging ones.
Try these simple steps for starters:
Step 1: Develop AWARENESS of your self-talk.
It may take practice, but if you start “listening” in to your inner voice, you’ll begin to notice when you talk negatively to yourself.
Step 2: CHALLENGE the negative messages.
When you notice yourself saying something negative such as, “You’re such a screw-up, you can’t do anything right” – Stop yourself and challenge that belief. Is that really true? Maybe you mess up sometimes, but do you ALWAYS mess up? Probably not.
Step 3: REPLACE these negative messages with positive messages.
When you realize you’re saying unkind and untrue things to yourself, simply TURN IT AROUND in your mind.
Using the above example, you might say, “Wow, that’s not true at all! I do plenty of things right. It’s true I make mistakes, but so does everyone. I’m a good person and I try my best.”
Over time, your efforts will pay off in the form of stronger self-esteem and RESPECT for yourself and your capabilities. It probably won’t happen overnight, but the more you work at turning your self-talk in a more positive direction, the better you’ll feel about yourself.
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|One of my favorite things to do to quiet negative self-talk is this…
Ask yourself, “Whose thought is this?”
Here’s the deal – most of our negative self-talk isn’t even of our own creation. Think about how freeing it will be when you realize that the negative thing you are saying to yourself, in any given moment, isn’t even your thought or belief…
When you try this for the first time you will feel exactly what I mean.
So, start asking yourself this question, “whose thought is this?” every time you find yourself in negative self-talk.
You will feel it when the thought isn’t yours – when it is a thought you assumed was yours, but it isn’t, and you ask this question, the power of the negative self-talk immediately dissipates.
I started using your ideas the last week in February, during March my sales doubled!!
I work at Verizon in retail in a small town. I never thought it was possible to make the numbers I did. I changed my thoughts and my customers came in and bought. I truly doubled my sales in 30 days!!! Can’t wait till April and I believe April will be even better!!! Thank you so much!! .
Btw, my store is not in a rich area; the customers didn’t change – I changed and I made the decision to be confident. Every day I wake up and say I am the best and I am successful. I do not use the words I can’t anymore!!
Thank you for your programs, I truly appreciate all of them!!”
