The Power of Positive Self Talk
Use Positive Self Talk To Achieve Your Goals
Do you feel like you are constantly talking yourself out of success? Do you set a goal for yourself, and then think about how you won’t be able to accomplish it? Or maybe you start thinking you aren’t talented enough or qualified enough to see your goal to completion?
If this has ever happened to you, you need to change the way you respond to your inner dialogue. Instead of obeying your negative commands, you can use positive self talk to counter and triumph over nearly all of your anxious and negative thoughts.
Stop talking yourself out of success!
Do you start out filled with excitement when you first set a goal for yourself, but then are plagued by self-doubt and self-defeating thoughts that stop you in your tracks before you even get started?
It can be nearly impossible to get the most out of your life when you are always talking yourself out of success. How frustrating and discouraging these thoughts can be! Many of us, in fact, don't even realize we do this! All we know is that we lack the confidence to stick to our plans and reach our goals.
You can start believing in yourself!
Positive self talk is an effective way to set your goals and ensure that you stay with them and follow through, even if you have never been able to accomplish this in the past.
First, you must decide on an important goal that you want to accomplish. Then you need to plan the logistics of how you are going to attain this goal. When self doubt starts kicking in, you will respond with affirmations that verify and affirm your success without giving in to the negative pressure. You can start believing in yourself!
Reprogram Your Mind
Affirmations are essentially positive statements that reprogram your mind for the positive. As soon as you have a self-defeating thought, you can counter the negative with a motivating statement. An example of a positive affirmation is: "I am worthy of great success," or "I see myself as a winner". This replaces the negativity with positive thoughts that will help you move forward with your goals instead of moving further away from them.
Put It Into Practice
Positive self talk is easier to put into practice than you might think. Most people are simply not aware of the severity of the negative dialogue currently within their minds.
Once you start to implement this positive inner dialogue with yourself, you will suddenly realize how you may have been sabotaging the goals you had set for yourself in the past, even from the minute you had made them. This process can help you realize exactly how much your inner conversation has been interfering with your life. You can feel hopeful that you will be able to set goals and conquer them.
Through your new habit of positive self talk, you can easily set long term as well as short term goals for yourself. Then, by using
you will have tools at you disposal to help you push yourself further and accomplish more than ever before.
Learning to overcome the negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts is a great first step to achieving your future goals with ease.
