Sit back a moment relax and let your mind clear. Then say this to yourself: ” I Believe In Me”
Then make a mental note of how that made you feel. How your mood may have changed. Did it inspire you in some way?
Self talk is very important to your own well being. Because it is how we feel about ourselves that has so much influence on everything we think and do. When I get up in the morning no matter how I feel at that moment. I give thanks for the new day ahead of me. Personally I too have been through some rough patches in my life and have dreaded each new day because I just knew that it would be as dreadful as yesterday. Many People have experienced a time in there life where it seems that every decision they make seems to get them farther from where we want to be. At these times it is real easy to give into the situation and just let the feeling of our self being no good and unable to get anything right take over our mindset. When a person lets this happen they put themselves on the sidelines of life.
Positive self talk no matter what the situation is, will allow you a more open mind to see your way through what ever is going on in your life. With a more open mind you will be able to understand more about the situation and what you need to do to deal with it. Negative self talk will pull you away from what is happening and basically avoid the situation.
I believe in myself, But over time through self analysis and trial and error I have a fuller understanding of my abilities and limitations. For instance I do not have a sense of negative self worth because I am not a pro football player. When I was was younger I never was very good at playing football and did not have the desire to become better. But I could ride a wheelie on my bike for a full city block. Even though a friend of mine finally road a wheelie a block and a half and beat my record. I was satisfied with my accomplishment of one block and felt good for his hard work to accomplish setting a new record. But did not feel good for him at the expense of feeling negative for myself.
Positive self talk goes hand in hand with a deeper understanding of our own abilities and our desires as to what we feel comfortable with and like doing. Hey I am completely happy being a spectator and watching the New England Patriots Play a game.
If you believe in yourself and have a decent understanding of your present abilities. You can be happier at whatever it is your desire to do.
