It is impossible for you to be in a resourceful state demonstrating your best and highest capabilities if you are consistently putting yourself down or worse yet,allowing other people to belittle you.
Loving or hating the life you are living is solely all in your repeated self talk.
What you listen to from other people is a key influencer of your behavior.What you tell yourself over and over is one of the major determinants to success in any given area of your life. Both of these,self-talk and talk from others mold us and drives our behavior in any given situation.
What do you say to yourself?
Throughout the day, during every waking hour,we are carrying on a running dialogue with ourselves. We are thinking or more accurately,talking to ourselves constantly.
Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening- Lisa M Hayes
What are you telling yourself? When you make a mistake,do you view it as just that, a mistake? Do you start belittling yourself with a stream of negative self-talk? Learn from it and make it a point not to repeat it.
Be mindful of your self-talk,It is a conversation with the universe – David James Lees
Really our beliefs are molded by what we tell ourselves over and over again. When you do something well,recognize it and reinforce the positive behavior with positive self-talk. Use the power of self-talk to help develop the habits and characteristics you want to create.
For example,when you are on the treadmill,you can fill up your mind with positive affirmations like Everyday in every way I am increasing my mental and physical capacity.
Brian Tracy,author and speaker suggest that people I’d sales repeat the phrase, I am a great sales person! over and over for a few minutes prior to making sales call. This conditions their mind for success and helps support a healthy self-image.
Two of the most powerful words. For what you put after it shapes your reality.
Beware of the relationships you keep. If you are surrounded by those whose self-talk along with their self-image tends to be negative,quick to put themselves down and are very hard on themselves for even the slightest thing,you have got to take an excuse and leave. These are the set of people referred to as “toxic people.” They are poisonous to your wellbeing.These are the people in your life sometimes people quite close to you who keep trying to make you feel less than you are. For whatever reason,either they don’t know any better,or they believe that this is the way to motivate people. It’s not! Perhaps they just want to make sure that you don’t succeed. You really need to leave them behind.
