Choose Better Words To Talk To Yourself With


In a previous post I talked about how the sub-conscious is always listening to what we say to ourselves (and to others). Words have power!!

self talk wordsWe use different words in the different environments we live in each day. The environment of home, family, extended family, play, work, work colleagues, friends, money, social….the list goes on.

Each environment can be thought of a bubble. Individual bubbles or paradigms may intersect with another bubble or paradigm. That is, we may use a certain set of words in one environment and not in other, or we can use words in two or more environments.

bubblesThe above sounds pretty complex, but what I am trying to convey is that we define ourselves and our abilities in each of those environments. Our definitions of ourselves is reflected in the words that we use.

Lets take the environment of work. We may define this environment with words like: “I’m no good at ….; or I can’t do that…; or I don’t know, I’m not sure, I’ve not done that before….”

These words show a reflection of our mindset and beliefs about ourselves.

When we continue to use these words, we continue to reinforce the neural pathways associated with that thinking and set of beliefs.

The beauty is that we can change and rewire our brains. By using better words. Words that are supportive and positive like: “I can do this! I don’t have the skills at the moment, but I am giving myself the time to develop them! I believe in myself!!”

The old adage – the pen is mightier than the sword – is very true!

Words can build us up or knock us down. And keep us down!!

What words are you going to choose to change to support a better tomorrow for yourself??

until next time
