We all fall victim to negative self-talk from time to time, saying things about ourselves such as, “I never do anything right. I look terrible. I’m not smart enough. I don’t have the right resources.”
As Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” In other words, the way we talk to ourselves will most definitely affect our lives. Start talking to yourself like a champion. Repeat over and over again to yourself, “There is nothing average about me. I wasn’t put here to be just ordinary. I am special and I have greatness within me.”
When you switch the negative self-talk with positive and uplifting words, the quality of your life will start to change. One of the biggest misconceptions is that we need materialistic things or to reach a certain level of success before we can be fully happy and live a great life.
We create our own happiness and one thing you have to understand is that no amount of success will replace negative or self diminishing self-talk.
Next time you find yourself downplaying your ability or second guessing a situation, talk to yourself like a champion. No one will believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself!
Action tip to help talk to yourself like a champion throughout the day:
Write powerful statements and uplifting quotes on a notecard. This exercise has helped me tremendously with battling negative thoughts or situations during my day.
The key is to keep your notecard in your purse, wallet, or pocket so you can easily access it. Look at this card and repeat the words with conviction. If you make this a habit, you will begin to see increased motivation and boosted confidence levels.
Today, many people will walk around and operate not knowing who they really are. Having no aim in life and just “hoping” things work out for the best. Instead of wandering around not knowing who you are or what you really want out of life, connect with your inner-self.
What makes you happy? If you could achieve one goal this year that would change the course of your entire life, what would it be? What are your values?
You’re not average so don’t wander around with average habits. Only the average don’t know who they are or what they want out of life. You have the opportunity to make today a masterpiece, but that can only happen if you know exactly what you want out of this day.
Set a purpose for today, and then do everything in your power to fulfill that purpose. Little daily victories might seem like not much, but over time they accumulate into big achievements. For the people and tasks that don’t align with who you are as a person, pay them no attention.
Every single one of us has a deep burning desire planted within us. Your job is to find out what that deep burning desire is and then work day and night towards making that desire a reality.
That’s where true happiness lies. Look out through the eyes of faith today and see your dreams coming to pass. See yourself walking in abundance in every area of your life!
This is your time to shine! You are equipped and empowered with everything you need to make your life meaningful. Please understand that the only limitations you have are the limitations you place on yourself. You have the ability to rise higher, overcome every obstacle, and experience greatness!
Instead of looking far ahead into the future, learn to love your life right now, right where you are. No one ever said you wouldn’t experience storms, but you do have the power to find peace in the midst of storms. Today, trust that everything is working in your favor.
Don’t try and cheat looking for shortcuts in life. Regret eats millions of people up every single day. Don’t let today come to an end with you having regret about anything you did or didn’t do. If there is something you want to do, do it!
If there is someone who means the world to you, tell them! If there is a dream you have been putting off, pursue it wholeheartedly!
This is your time to shine. Let your life and actions speak so loud in such a beautiful and special way that people can’t help but want to take their life to the next level when they see you. You are special. You are powerful.
