We all see those people. They talk to themselves. And we judge them a little bit. When actually, we use self-talk all of the time, usually without realizing it. And most of what we tell ourselves is negative, counterproductive, and damaging, preventing us from enjoying a fulfilled and successful life. Shad Helmstetter helps us break the cycle with tips from What to Say When You Talk to Your Self.
Think for a moment of some of the things you would like to accomplish or achieve in your life—or even smaller things you would like to change about your life right now. Your objective could be to earn more income, have a better family life, improve your skills, do better in school, do better at work—anything at all. Whatever means you choose to make the change, unless you first begin to change your old programming, the years of conditioning that keep you doing it the old way, the likely outcome is that what you want to accomplish will not work—or will not last.
When you use any of the personal growth ideas and concepts that are available to you, the practice of self-talk—the practice of consciously and actively rewiring your brain with a more successful, new picture of yourself—is the ingredient that programs your brain and changes your future. But bear in mind that as you do this, it is essential to program in the right new self-talk.
Whatever you put into your mind, in one way or another, is what you will get back out, in one way or another.
