You know how it is, you’re going along, minding your own business and then it happens…you get hit with something that overturns your apple cart, and you fall back into those patterns that you don’t want to admit you have. Negative patterns that you thought you had gotten rid of long ago. You’re looking at your self talk and wondering what are you saying?
You didn’t realize that your thoughts were negative until you took one reflective moment to see that your thinking was not in alignment with where you wanted to be… moving forward and winning your way through life.
For me, these past couple of weeks my Achilles heel has been my internet connection. This one little thing has me wanting to spit nails, and throw the modem through the window. Now, is that actually how a winner should be thinking? You know the answer.
When days like this happen I (we) need to reflect (calmly) and realize that things happen, they will always happen, and I (we) will move forward in spite of the circumstances. On these days, I need to go back and reread the second chapter of the book I’m reading by Shad Helmstetter, Ph.D, “What To Say When You Talk To Your Self.”
Dr. Helmstetter shares that though we read good books, listen to audios and try to develop ourselves with our “keys to success,” we have overlooked what we are saying to ourselves. Our brains have taken in so much negative “programming” that we have to learn how to treat our brains, and give it the right directions.
We have spent years with people telling us “no,” or that what we are attempting is not possible. Learning to erase these negative patterns, and talking to ourselves in a manner that will move us forward is essential. Dr. Helmstetter states that success is no longer contained in a success theory, but what you think about the most. He gained all of this insight from this verse in the Bible:
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
I’ve only just finished the second chapter, but I would recommend this book.
So, when it comes to self talk…what are you saying?
