Self Talk Powers Accomplishment
« on: 2013 06 28 - 15:00 »

When I was a child I spent a lot of time by myself. And like many children I would talk to myself. Yes, I know, it may seem a bit crazy, and yet, I have no apologizes. I still talk to myself. I give myself little pep talks, little pick me ups and encouragement throughout the day. Or I use small talk to bounce ideas off the wall.

John Maxwell, the leadership expert, speaker, and author, has said, “Remember, man does not live on bread alone: sometimes he needs a little buttering up.” It is your job to be the butterer when no one else is around to do it for you.

Giving yourself an internal pep talk can go a long way toward improving the moment and reducing your anxiety about a situation. Sometimes you just need to talk through the problem to find the solution.

Now, I am not suggesting that you walk around muttering to yourself, and answering your own questions. I am suggesting that a positive attitude comes from self-encouragement. Sometimes you may feel beaten down, discouraged, and unworthy of success. You have a responsibility to pick yourself up when needed, congratulate yourself on your accomplishments, and boost your self-esteem from time-to-time.

The popular Tulsa, Oklahoma doctor of philosophy and family therapist Asa Don Brown says “Self-talk reflects your innermost feelings.”

You must be your own best cheerleader. As much as everyone might love and care for you, they too have their own worries and challenges. It is not their responsibility to pick you every time you need it. In your quest to create a positive life, with an open heart, you must build yourself up. You must take charge and make it happen. No one else can do it for you. It is your responsibility.

There is no specific formula for doing this. You can do the talking internally or by writing down your thoughts. The main thing is to reflect and boost your own self-esteem with positive self-talk. Talking to yourself is a key component of intelligence; it allows you to make connections and explore possibilities. Think about your gifts, your gratitude, and your dreams. Direct your thoughts toward encouraging yourself to remain positive, thankful, and worthy of receiving everything you have asked for in life.

Your positive self-talk will start to make a difference in your daily attitude and others will notice you have a sense of purpose; a sense of accomplishment. Continue to bolster your own self esteem with positive self-talk. The results will be readily apparent to yourself and everyone that you meet.

Hi, Very well said and I totally agree with you. I believe that speaking your thoughts out loud gives them more clarity and power, but obviously it is best not to do that in public, and they should always be positive ones. It is the same with daydreaming, when we are young we are told to stop daydreaming, which is so wrong as it is basically visualization which can be powerful in steering our lives in the direction we truly want.

Anyway great post:)
Regards
Rob

Hi,
I also agree with positive self talk.  I like to make an audio recording of my thoughts and solutions to problems.  There's something about hearing your own voice giving you solutions that gives it more credibility.  We have automatic thoughts going through our mind continually and too often they're negative,  so why not make it positive self talk that will help change our life for the better. 

Thanks
Dena :)

I own a home studio here in Nashville and I often record my own affirmations to pair with music. I think that when you use self-talk it really begins to pull things into your life rapidly. I've seen such a huge turn around in my life because of self-talk and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon! Glad to see I'm not the only one using this method.  :)

what you say to yourself is so vital. We have all heard that "we become what we think about most of the time"; the words we use are a reflection of what we are thinking. I also believe that we can change our thinking with the words we use and with our physiology. So the way we hold our body and the words we say to ourselves WILL change the way we think and that will change the results we get.

We should all say positive uplifting things to ourselves all day long

I agree with what all of you shared. At the end of the day, you are the one who is there for yourself. So why not give yourself the positive self-talk? It has certainly helped me from slipping into the negative on several occasions. :)

Self talk is one of the greatest tools one can use to improve himself and his life. 
It got me out of shyness and help me build a leader character.

Everyone should try it and see the result for himself.

"I'm Powerful beyond Measure" that is self talk.

If you don't believe in yourself, why should anyone else believe in you?

Self-talk, I believe, can instil confidence and boldness to live the life that you are destined to live. Sometimes we have to talk ourselves out of the shadows of fear and doubt  - not a thing wrong with that!

Good post - I thank you even though I couldn't figure out how to actually do that "officially".

The only one that can change you is yourself. Self Talk is great for doing this, focus on the things you must improve with clarity.

Self Talk/Affirmations are immensely powerful and a single  contributing factor in developing many of the inner resources we have been blessed with as well as being the difference between wishing and achieving.


By constantly telling yourself what you want,that you can achieve, that you are worthy of greatness and that you are phenomenal your subconscious will change frequency and begin to  reveal to you ideas and inspiration to accelerate you  towards your goal.
