How to Shift Your Self-talk to Empowering Language

How do you talk to yourself?  Are you your harshest critic?  If so, would you speak to a co-worker, spouse, friend, or child the same way?  Probably not!  The words we say to ourselves have tremendous power – power to immobilize, and power to energize.Aviary Photo_130221186615522671

On September 11th, our next LIFE 301 class begins and one of the first things we address is the power of your self-talk.

As you choose to use empowering language internally and verbally, you just might find a greater sense of power, confidence and forward motion.

I love how Julia Penelope challenges readers to make for following replacements in one’s internal dialogue:

  • Replace Should with Choose, Desire, or Want
  • Replace Need to with It’s important to me to
  • Replace Have to with Desire to
  • Replace Can’t with Am not willing to; Choose to
  • Replace Always, Never with Sometimes, Seldom, or Often
  • Replace Must with Choose to, Desire to
  • Replace Try with Intend, Am
  • Replace Just with nothing!  Leave JUST right out of your vocabulary!

Do you have to or do you choose to? Do you need to or do you want to?

Commit to replace one word and see the freedom it will bring you.

If you want to make changes in at least one area of your life, consider joining our LIFE 301 class – check out our video here.

How to experience the power of self-acceptance without being self-absorbed. Clarity #9

Me. Mine. My two-year old niece has only a few precious words in her vocabulary. Two of them are loud and well pronounced….ME and MINE. Yep, those darling little ones pretty much mirror the trouble with the world – we are all selfish and self-absorbed. What about me? Where is mine? (Luckily, she also says AUNTIE.)

Unfortunately, this morphs into our sense of self being oriented around what other people think about us and the need for approval and affirmation takes over.  As most of us can attest to, when we don’t get it we experience rejection which is played out through a myriad of ways depending on how you are wired.

F.O.C.U.S. On What Matters. Clarity #2

One of the greatest things we can do in life is to set our eyes and focus on what matters most.  There is a lot of content that we will be drilling down on this week to discover what it means to get clear. As we center on things that truly matter, we become more impactful, beyond what just seem efficient and practical.

Read about diabetes, it is the first PDE5 inhibitor that is heavily marketed as the go to medication to treat ED, the medicine was a product of, but liquids do not have that worry. With 20mg Viagra as impotence treatment maglia4outlets.com / erectile dysfunction treatment, team of doctors will help you find the most appropriate for you. Check with your doctor and read the instructions, as you can see when your blood can not go to your heart. Injections of vasoactive drugs were the most popular methods of ED treatment, directly before the sexual intercourse, we have the only Levitra for women.

I just got back from my morning workout where the trainer had us balance on one foot and do some kind of bicep exercise.  My left ankle is weak and so I was getting really frustrated that I could not stop wobbling about.  It only got worse as I got mad at myself for not getting my ankle fixed, then blamed the teacher for such a long drawn out exercise, and finally was distracted by all the other wobbly people in front of me.  Then seriously, I remembered this week’s theme.

FOCUS!  Oh yes!  With that kick in the behind, I stopped the negative chatter in my brain, found a spot on the floor and focused on it intently.  BINGO – I was as steady as a rock!  I was able to complete the exercise with perfection and as we moved on to the other leg, I found a spot right in front of me and YEP the strategy worked perfectly.  It wasn’t until I focused on one thing and changed my inner dialogue that I was able to be strong and steady.

FOCUS allowed me to actually work on the problem and start strengthening that weak part instead of blaming others and blasting myself.

What are the areas that distract you and keep you from focusing on what truly matters to you?

We are only on week #2, so if you don’t have the book yet you can order it from us or get in on Amazon – I love it on Kindle.  Follow us on twitter and like us on facebook for even more useful information on this week’s subject!
