Talking to Yourself Can Be a Sign of Success

leave a comment »

We all talk to ourselves. The key is to take control of this self-talk and use it to motivate yourself to achieve your goals. The next time you start to negative thought about a goal or a task, speak out loud a positive motivating statement like “I can do this!”.

I learned that you can’t have a negative thought when you are making a positive statement out loud. I’ve experimented with this hundreds of times and have even tried to keep the negative thought in my mind while saying the positive statement – it can’t be done.

This approach is not foolproof because you can’t walk around all day saying, “I can do it! I got this! I will get this done! I will win!”. But if you make positive statements often  enough, over time your automatic self-talk will change.
