“I’ll never figure this out.”
“I’m too stupid.”
These comments are known as negative self-talk.
This is how too many entrepreneurs think and speak, and it is holding them back from leads, conversions, success and profits. Not to mention happiness, laughter, peace of mind and taking action.
Where does all this negative self-talk come from?
Many of our recurring thoughts come from our subconscious mind, and many of those thoughts were put there before the age of six. In fact, much of who we are today came from what we learned from before age six. At that age we absorbed and soaked up everything from our environment, whether it was good for us or not. Whether we liked it or not.
By the time we are a teenager, our thought patterns are set. Unless we take consistent, determined and mindful effort to change our thought patterns, they stay the same.
Along with those negative thought patterns or negative self-talk comes negative habits. Often we don’t even recognize our bad habits – we just do what we know and what we’ve always done. Terrible!
Maybe we keep a messy house. Maybe we drink or smoke too much. Or do drugs. Maybe we are too lazy to do our homework. Perhaps we are selfish or a bully. Eeks! Here’s the thing… we may not even recognize that we have a problem.
Want to create an amazing future for yourself?
Listen up – this is cool! Once we become aware that we have a problem, it is 90% solved. Just our awareness helps us to change our lives.
We can purposely create our mindset every minute of the day.
Imagine that! Once our self-awareness comes into play, we can easily incorporate positive self-talk and habits.
Soon we will believe in ourself and entertain thoughts like these:
“I know I can do this because I am creative and smart” and
“Thank goodness I am brilliant and I catch on easily!”
Start being aware of your thought patterns and your habits. Start expecting great things to happen in your life. Consistently reach for better feeling thoughts.
Start new habits – one at a time. After practicing it for 30 days, it is a habit. From now on, when you don’t carry out your new habit, you will feel uncomfortable.
And let’s keep a positive mindset every day, shall we?
Now, what thoughts, habits or awareness have made an impact in your life?
