Self-talk is the act or practice of talking to oneself, either aloud or silently and mentally.
Positive self-talk is telling yourself you can do something, you can be something. It’s the script that we use to frame our lives. If we constantly give ourselves negative messages like: You can’t, You won’t succeed, You’re not good enough, this kind of self-talk will take you down, tear you down. Positive self-talk will help you reach your personal best; it will boost you up.
The true riches:
What would make you happy? A new wardrobe, a faster car? A new house? People often think these things are the key to feeling good, but experts say only about 10% of a person’s happiness is related to them. Much more happiness, 90%, has to do with your general outlook on life.
Think on these things:
Self-talk is the conversation you have in your head about yourself and the world around you. Changing how you talk to yourself can actually help how you see life — your life. What you meditate on is important. What you are thinking, how you talk to yourself can and will determine whether you are successful or not. Instead of thinking the worst, begin telling yourself you are important, you are somebody. If God is for me, who can be against me? If you are a Negative Nancy, begin to change what you allow yourself to think about. Think on these things: Philippians 4:8 — Fix your thoughts on what is true. Look it up.
Change your self-talk — change your life.
