How To Use Self-Talk To Your Advantage
The barriers we often face in our personal growth are caused by negative internal self-talk. When we start questioning our own value, the focus of our blame shifts to external issues.
Self-talk gets in the way by bubbling up as self-judgement, judgement of others, and a lack of presence when we need to work on the challenges facing us.
How do we address the issues and questions that arise inside our heads?
Mindfully Accept The Self-Talk
Striving against the chatter of our minds to create a still, quiet space tends to be disruptive. Instead, simply accept the distractions, note them in a journal and let it go.
All of us struggle with the distraction of the voice in our heads – the chatter, the doubts, the insecurities that surface as fear. Learning to accept this disruption as normal is the first step.
The usual thoughts that occur are, “Am I good enough to be paid for this service?” and “What if I fail?”
Avoid Judging Yourself And Others
When we allow our self-talk to give us a pep-talk when we have doubts, we can learn something valuable from the chatter in our minds.
If you are running late for a business appointment, you have one of two choices – you can berate yourself and call yourself a loser or you can make a mental note of it and let the thought go. In the former instance, everything you do that day could turn sour and you wonder why everything bad in the world happens to you. In the latter instance, you feel good about taking action to avoid the mistake in the future and go about your day with positivity.
