There’s nothing more liberating than to be free from negative self-talk, from harmful inner voices that make you feel inferior and insecure. The rewards of such freedom are out of this world.
Are you tired of emotional torment that tricks you into believing your dreams are just foolish fantasies? Fabulous. I’m going to give you three powerful tips that liberate you from the constant assaults and insults that habitual negative self-talk inflicts on you.
Are you ready to make room for a life of success and happiness? Here are my tips:
Tip # 1: Whenever you’re being unpleasant, you’re obeying the orders of negative self-talk. Just being aware of this empowers you to say, “No way. I no longer tolerate this kind of inner thinking that compels me to act in unpleasant ways.” Talking back to your negative self-talk this way is a great start for undermining it when it tries to dominate you. In the next moment, choose to act naturally, no matter what the circumstances may be. Acting pleasantly is the natural thing to do.
Tip # 2: When you’re feeling insecure, your very own negative self-talk is harming your psychology by inferring that you don’t have what it takes to succeed. This awareness of what your negative self-talk is doing empowers you to say, “My talents and intelligence are being hidden by false thoughts of inadequacy, and I tolerate it no longer.” This affirmation of power weakens that inner voice that has been whittling away at your inherent confident spirit. Now you are free to think again in the right direction. The truth will reveal a very different point of view about you.
Tip # 3: When you hear yourself wailing, “Woe is me,” inwardly, and whining to yourself about how you’ve been wronged, consider this inner conversation nothing more than a bad habit that can be broken. State the opposite to yourself: “If it is to be, it is up to me to do what needs doing to live a life filled with sweet victory.” With that, begin thinking of the next logical step you should take to prove that “WOW is me” is your natural expression of authenticity.
Negative self-talk can be replaced with healthy inner voices that offer you inspiring counsel. By reading this blog, you’ve already made a start in the right direction.
