When we think of conversations we generally think of ones we are having with other people. Have you ever stopped and listened to the conversations you are having with yourself? Do you speak to yourself with the level of respect you deserve, and more importantly, are they actually helpful?
Jack Canfield, co-creator of the super successful “Chicken Soup for the Soul” shares with us that the average person talks to themselves thousands of times a day. The alarming part is that 80% of those conversations are negative. This negativity is creating or enhancing self-doubt, allowing us to accept all we fear, stopping us from doing and achieving our best work, and just making us feel unworthy.
What if we had a choice? We could choose to stay in the 80% or we could jump across and help increase that low 20% result.
Often, we are not even aware of our own conversations, we just have them without even realising. So some tips to turn our negative self-talk into self-talk that is powerful, productive and will be rewarding to how we conduct ourselves is:
These things don’t happen overnight, but the exciting part is, we can change every day for the better, changing even a few conversations will be empowering to yourself.
This is your life, your body, your choice. Respect yourself enough to have great powerful conversations that will help you be confident, successful and happy.
I love this quote from the fabulous singer Adele…
“I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me”.
