When a person’s inner conversations, also known as self-talk, are based on the premise that he already knows that (1) he is who he wants to be, (2) he’s doing what he wants to do, (3) he already has what he wants to have – that person is living from a feeling of faith. His constant inner question is, “What I do next to further my intention?” He asks without a shred of doubt. His eyes are firmly set on his goals, and consequently – right and perfect answers come to him. That is why it is said, “faith shapes and molds one’s world.”
When a person’s inner conversations are based on the premise that there are a lot of obstacles and challenges between where he is and where he wants to be – that person is living from a feeling of insecurity. His constant inner questions are fraught with thoughts of, “Woe is me.” He has his eyes on the psychological fences he’s placed between him and his goals. That is why Julius Caesar said, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” Act I Scene II
