Talk Yourself Positive

Man, what a great day this is going to be, huh? Ready?

Say yes…

It’s very well known that Tiger Woods uses a very specific kind of self talk. He talks himself into staying calm at times when others are literally trembling inside (outside, too!). He’s not a wizard. He simply talks to himself in a way that encourages him. He says, “I can” and that type of talk opens up the door marked “memory of past success.”

And you know what?

When you talk to yourself, you listen. No matter what you say, you’re listening… and recording it in your memory.

And when you put thoughts into your mind, they CAN be rejected. However, if you do it often enough and they’re the right thoughts, your mind – your subconscious mind – will ultimately bring you around to believing whatever you tell it.

How many times have you heard a thing – it could be anything – and your first reaction was one of complete disbelief:

– You can earn your degree-“I don’t have the time”

– You can be a size 6 again-“Yeah, right. I’ve had two kids and just can’t lose that weight.”

– You can be in really great shape-“Who, me? I get out of breath climbing one flight of stairs.”

– You can advance at work-“I’m just a pee-on. No one notices me.”

Some things are just hard to believe at first…

…Until you’ve been exposed to those same thoughts over and over and over again. Advertisers know this–that’s why the same commercials are run constantly.

Soon, after some repetition, you open up a little to the possibility.

“Could be…”

Then, perhaps your belief gets a little boost.

“Hmmmn, well, maybe I do have time to take one course at the community college at night.”

“You know, I’ve just cut back on soda and I’ve lost 3 pounds!”

“Walking around the block with my neighbor is kind of fun, and I don’t get as winded as I used to.”

“I’ve been trying harder at my job and guess what-the boss paid me a very nice compliment on my work!”

At this point, a wonderful cycle has begun. As your belief gets stronger, you’ll do a little more, then your belief gets stronger, then you’ll do a little more, etc.

Positive, encouraging and optimistic self-talk is literally the software program that can flip your switch from lose to win in any area of life. It may not be “true” today. But with the right words and the right emotion – and with repetition – you simply must change. It’s unavoidable. Your brain won’t let you lie to yourself for too long before it says, “Ya know, I DO like getting up at 5:30 to exercise.” Bingo!
