Watch Your Inner-Talk as It Dictates Your Success

The words within your mind can always have a great impact in your life. When you are reaching and thinking conclusions within your mind, the words that you are using create a powerful impact on your own emotions.

The words that you speak are reflections of your beliefs and thoughts. Once you learn to change the manner of your thinking, you can also change your way of speaking.

Through changing the way that you speak, you can always enact great and positive changes in your life. Your success and your failure often depend on the words that you speak to yourself – the inner dialogue. .

There are numerous studies that prove the effects of self-talk, particularly when it’s negative, and how it affects your mental and emotional health. It can damage your self-esteem and self-worth and you won’t accomplish the very things you want.

To be more successful, you must stop this behavior, which is not always easy to do. Here are some tips to help:

  1. You must stop at the first second a negative thought occurs so you won’t continue and berate yourself. It’s easier to put a rubber band on your wrist and flick it to stop the thought.
  2. You must override negative thoughts – research shows that for every negative thought you must have three positives to replace it. This might be hard at first, especially if you tend to look for the negatives but, the more you practice this, the more you will see good things about you and your life.
  3. You must challenge your thoughts as they are not ‘real’ – they are yours and not others, meaning they are your perspectives. When you have a negative thought, challenge it by saying ‘oh really you actually can’t do ____? OR, look at a past situation when you did do something you didn’t think you could (which there are probably thousands) as this will challenge the negative in the moment.
  4. You must focus on your successes – the wins, no matter how big or small. Our brains tend to latch onto negatives, letting positives ‘slide off.’ Make it a habit to write down your successes each day so you can focus on them and change your self-talk to be more uplifting and affirming.  

If you want to become successful in your life, it starts with your thoughts and beliefs around how you see yourself and your abilities. You always have a choice for your thoughts and self-regulating your emotions. Your mind is very powerful, so use it for the good. When you speak positively, you will see positive results in your life today and in the future to have more success in your life.

If you want to stop any negative behaviors that are preventing you from achieving all you want, reach out to get started on your success journey.
