Positive Self Talk Affirmations
Positive Self Talk Affirmations will help you crush the negative self talk pattern of thinking and speaking.
Does the voice of your self talk sound like the examples above? Here, we can see that the stream of consciousness shown here is generally realistic and positive. The positive affirmations for negative self talk examples listed above would likely come from someone who has healthy self esteem. This person isn't likely to blow things out of proportion, dwell on the negative or have a pessimistic attitude.
If that's the kind of self talk that you hear in your own head, congratulations! You're doing pretty well for yourself. It's possible that you received lots of positive reinforcement growing up. Or perhaps you're currently surrounded by uplifting people.
As someone who's self talk comes through in a mature, emotionally controlled, optimistic and rational way, you could likely be of service to someone else who may lack the confidence that you were gifted with. Try to use your own positive self talk to influence someone else's life in a meaningful way. YOUR self talk actually shapes the voice in other people's heads, too.
What can you say to spur someone on, let them know that they have value, and that you believe in them?
Everyone has self talk. Your self talk is your own subconscious making
Only you know what your mind whispers to you as you go about your life's challenges. It's likely that other people have literally no idea what's going on in your head! Unless of course, you tell them.
So ask yourself this important question: what messages am I sending to myself in the form of my self talk? Are the messages mostly positive?
The quality of your own self talk is more important than you might think. In fact, the more successful and happy a person seems to be, the more likely they are to have developed a voice of positivity in their own mind.
If the voice of your own subconscious doesn't seem to be all that optimistic, you might ask yourself why that might be. Are you spending too much time with negative people?
Positive self talk affirmations give you the power to change the narrative.
You can work on
becoming aware, and changing your self talk from negative to positive.
And you can also take your cue from other people who have learned to
think positively, so much so that they have made optimistic, open-minded
thinking a habit which now manifests in the form of positive self talk.
Everyone experiences both positive and negative self talk. The perspective shifts from optimistic to pessimistic and back again depending on a variety of factors. These could be mood, how relaxed or stressed you may feel at any given time, whether you're hungry, tired, emotionally tweaked, or something else.
