Positive self-talk leads to great changes.
Society has set an impossible standard, from the looks we should have to the acts we should take and other things that we let affect our day and judgment. When we don’t measure up to these standards and the standards of the people surrounding us, we feel negative and tend to blame ourselves. We should not. Why? Because we are free to set and follow our standards, no one else’s.
To master positive self-talk and not let negativity affect you in any way, try the following:
Listen only to POSITIVE things
Life is many things. We can make it positive or negative. But that is the thing, isn’t it? We have a choice. Don’t pay attention to negative things. Always focus on the positive. When you think negatively about something, there will surely be something positive you can think about, focus on it and on it only. This way, you only listen and act on positive thoughts from others and from yourself, most especially.
Be kind to yourself
You owe it to yourself to treat YOU better. When you do this, you realize that you deserve better and that you will not settle for anything less. Forgive yourself when you make a mistake and allow yourself to learn and grow. Nobody is perfect, but we can always try to do better every single day.
Learn from each mistake
Lessons are learned every single day, and the hardest of all is learned through big mistakes. When you look at it this way, you will not have any problem encouraging yourself to try once again. It is also easy to convince yourself to not dwell on what happened but to focus on the lessons you are being taught.
Believe in what you can do
You are capable of great things, you have always been. Believe in this and in what you can do. When you know where you are headed, even when you don’t exactly know the way to get there, you know you can make it happen.
Remember, change starts with one positive self-talk and encouragement.
