Your Inner Coach
Our daily self- talk sends powerful messages to the emotional and motivational parts of our brain- affecting how we feel, guiding our activities and motivating us to behavior in a certain way. Is your self- talk positive and constructive or negative and deconstructive? Dr. Jan Fite guides reminds us that we can influence and change our own self-talk and as a result how we feel.
We talk to ourselves every day, throughout the day.
Our self talk is powerful. It gets us down with negative thoughts, or can lift us up with positive thoughts, remove self doubt, self defeatism and cheer us on to achieve and live our best. Self talk will get us up the mountain to our own personal summit.
Remember to listen to yourself and take note of the words you use as you 'talk to yourself.'
If your self talk is negative:
- Can you catch yourself before these words affect how you feel?
- Are there positive words you can use instead?
If your self talk is positive:
- Remember your positive words and say them to yourself when you need the extra boost, encouragement or self confidence to move forward.
