You have been embedding negative and/or positive self talk patterns into the deepest parts of your mind since early childhood. Those self-talk patterns have take hold and have deeply affected you, so much so that you are what you say!
Because you are what you say, and because positive self talk has the power to increase self-confidence, reduce stress and make your life infinitely more enjoyable, sending ripples of happiness throughout your world, I encourage you to get hip to your self-talk.
Get Hip to Your Self Talk.
Is your self-talk primarily positive, or negative? Are you sure? Here follow a few strategies that can help you become more aware of your inner dialogue.
Write It. At night and in the morning, jot dot a general summary of your thoughts. Today is; today will be; today was … Don’t judge it; just let it rip and then read it.
Stop It. It’s as easy as that! When you hear yourself saying something negative … STOP yourself in your tracks by saying “Stop!” It’s more powerful to say it aloud.
Snap It. I’ve heard that some people wear a rubber band around their wrist, and when they hear themselves saying something negative, they snap it! I don’t know how I feel about that (ouch!), but if you are really deep into negativity, you might want to snap it!
Neutralize It. When you catch yourself saying something negative, turn it around. Instead of “I can’t do it,” say “I don’t now how.” “Instead of “I’m in pain,” say, “I am experiencing discomfort.” Instead of “today was an awful day,” say, “today was trying and the best part of it was _____.” No matter how bad, there’s still a best.
Positive self-talk has a positive effect on permanent fat removal!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
