Once upon a time, we told people that if they talked to themselves, they were crazy 🤪.
Nowadays, more and more people 👩👨🧓👴👩🦱🧑🦱 talk to themselves.
You talk to yourself 🪞 much more than anybody else does.
Regularly, you're telling yourself about the things you can do ✊.
You're scheming 📐📏 your future.
You're also talking to yourself about past regrets 😔.
And it is this last point that you should be aware of ⚠️.
- Well, we often wind up telling ourselves the wrong things ❌.
- We go the wrong way ❌.
- We discourage ourselves ❌.
- We tell ourselves that it's best not to try to do X ❌.
- We're going to fail ❌.
- We're going to waste our time ❌.
- We've got to make a fool of ourselves ❌.
- We discourage risk-taking ❌.
I have such thoughts when I have opportunities for new relationships, either in business or leisure.
I say to myself, it is a loss of time ⌛, it is not worth the effort 💪, and it will be again a bad experience 🤣.
But the point is to continue experimenting until you get it right 👍.
Unfortunately, neuroscience 🧠 has indicated that up to about 75 percent of those inner dialogues are negative ⛈️.
So the tip is to detect 🎯 when you self-talk badly and prune ✂️ out these negative thoughts.
Self-manage you 😉 ! Create an active, positive 🤗 dynamic dialogue that encourages and supports what you want, what you can do, and where you want to succeed!
