Self Talk

“Oh sure”, you say,”I’m never going through that stuff again. Nobody is ever going to do that to me again. I’ve changed”. And then surer than a daily sunrise, somebody does”it” to you again. Why? Because you really haven’t changed. Oh, you got a bit more experience under your belt but you are still you. You haven’t really changed.

If you dress up like a lumberjack, people are going to treat you like a lumberjack. If you change the part in your hair and dress up like a lumberjack people are still going to treat you like a lumberjack because you’ve only made a small change. If you really want to change, you’ve got to make GREAT changes and if you want to make GREAT changes, you have to make GREAT changes in the way you talk to yourself.

You can’t criticize and whip your self all day everyday and then complain that there is no joy in your life, that you are stuck.
Self esteem problem? NO!
Self confidence problem? NO!
Self talk problem? YES!!!!

Starting right now, make a commitment that you will no longer linger on any thought that is critical of your looks, capabilities, income, past or relationships. Starting right now, make a commitment to accept and be kind to yourself in every bit of self talk and to start envisioning a brighter tomorrow in every way.

Starting right now, tell yourself that you are heading to the top of the mountain and you’re not packing anything negative for the trip. Talk to yourself repeatedly about how blessed and wonderful you are and you’ll be surprised at how fast you get to the top. You can do it!
