Learn how to silence your negative self-talk, and speak your fulfillment into existence, (in 30 days, or less).
"You're not smart enough," "You're too old," "Your idea isn't original," "You'll never find love at that size"... Now that you've met the cynical jerk that lives in my brain, I ask, can you relate?
Don't you hate how that negative self-talk, jumps out exactly when you're finally ready to put yourself out there? It knows precisely which insecurities to target, in the cruelest ways, at the worst times.
How many times have you allowed that negative self-talk, to sabotage your progress? How often does that negative voice, have a platform to speak down to you, (without you jabbing back)?
You don't have to remain hostage, to your self-sabotaging, self-talk anymore!
Some of What You'll Learn in The 9 Sections of The Art of Positive Self-Talk:
1) How to become aware of your inner self-talk.
Bombarded with distractions, and never-ending "to do" lists, it's easy to be unaware of our inner self-talk. It's the reason we mean to grab a healthy lunch and end up inhaling a Super Sized #1 instead. Learn how to become aware of your self-talk, like a "fly on the wall" of your internal conversations.
2) How to interact with your inner self-talk.
Go from being a "fly on the wall" of your internal dialogue, to consciously and deliberately engaging in your inner self-talk. Build your positive self-talk, while silencing your self-defeating negative self-talk.
You're training your positive self-talk to hit back, silencing your negative inner critic (and to win by knock out every time)!
3) How to keep your positive self-talk strong.
There are multiple influences that our inner self-talk mimics. You must identify the voices contributing to your internal self-talk. Understanding who feeds your positive self-talk vs. your negative self-talk is critical to keeping your positive self-talk resilient.
Because you can't defeat your negative self-talk, without actually getting into language, you'll also learn:
4) How your perceptions and perspectives affect your definitions of words and ideas.
If you think the dictionary assigns words their meaning, you're unaware of your power. Words have layers of meaning. Our definitions of the words we commonly use often mislead us from taking appropriate actions to our desired results.
5) You'll become conscious of how language can deceive you.
Many words appear to be opposites though they share common traits. For example, we can feel jealous of someone; however, when we dig deeper, we find that we're inspired to obtain something they have. Recognizing the positive element within the negative context makes confronting feelings more comfortable. It also allows us clarity to resolve the issue.
Realizing you're inspired by (rather than jealous) by what someone has achieved, encourages you to be more proactive about your own goals. Our negative perception of jealousy makes the person feeling it seem dirty and untrustworthy. In contrast, our perception of inspired is positive, and something we often seek.
Masterfully navigating your perceptions of words empowers you to use words that increase your odds of success rather than go along with the popular consensus of a word or idea.
(Think of it as creating a navigation system as specific to you as your unique fingerprints, rather than using the same navigation system everybody else uses).
6) I'm going to share my unsexy hack, allowing you to look at a situation from another perception, dramatically increasing your chances of success and fulfillment.
Seriously, it's the "granny panties" of hacks, but it will help take you from operating in a reactive mindset, (where you're only moving forward because of circumstances rather than choice), to a proactive mindset, (where you're moving forward on your own terms, with an abundance of available options).
As we expand The Art of Positive Self-Talk, we will notify you.
Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following.
The key is activating as many of these pathways as possible.
With deliberate practice, you can retrain your self-talk, to become positive, leading to a growth mindset.
I've been working with at risk children, suffering from abuse or neglect, for over 20 years. Every day I see the heartbreaking affects of negative self-talk. Working in such negative environments, I realized how negative my own self-talk had become. Taking the Art of Positive Self-Talk has been the most significant investment I've made in myself. Not only have I reaped the benefits of this course, but I'm taking what I've learned and empowering the kids I work with. It truly starts with your thoughts and how you speak to yourself; from there the sky is the limit.
