Once you replace negative thoughts with the positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.
~ Willie Nelson
One of the most powerful things in life we do that can make us constantly sad, mad, afraid or happy and grateful are the things we say to ourselves on a daily basis. People get discouraged easily because of unhealthy inner chattering. This is arguably one of the most important skills to master in life; how to communicate effectively with yourself. Whether you know it or not, you are always dialoguing with yourself – asking questions and answering questions. If the questions you are asking are negative, they automatically attract negative answers – which will then disrupt your focus and send distress signals to the body. For example, if you ask a question such as “Why is it that I am a failure?” You will probably get an answer such as, “Because that’s what you are.” The key skill here is to ask positive and constructive questions; such as, “How can I be successful? What can I do to achieve? Who can I learn from? What can I learn from this setback?” You are responsible for your inner chattering. Master how to give positive answers to all your negative thoughts. Ensure that no internal dialogue within you is ended without you coming out victorious. Dominate your inner chattering; it is a valuable key for sustaining your positive energy and motivation. Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
