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.
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.
