Negative Language vs Positive Self-Talk
Positive self-talk; a term that’s thrown around a lot. But what does it mean exactly? And when we use negative language instead, how does that impact us and our experience?
Now, let’s point out that these can both be expressed verbally as well as non-verbally. We might not actually say the words out loud, but our thoughts carry so much weight and truly shape who we are and how we behave. They have the power to be self-limiting or lead us to self-actualisation.
So often we hear in the gym:
“I’m not good at running”
“I’m not good at dead lifts”
“I’m not fit”
Whether you know it or not, you are conditioning your very being to believe this as the truth. It should come as no surprise then that when you do run, it absolutely sucks! You feel short of breath, your legs feel heavy, you hate every moment…
Let’s change the language. Let’s change our subconscious beliefs. By simply recognising our negative thoughts and language and shifting them to be more positive, you can take small steps toward actualising your potential. Because it’s LIMITLESS! But YOU must believe it first!!
Daily affirmations about the person you WANT to be help create momentum in that direction. Repetition makes our subconscious mind believe what we tell it, act upon it and eventually manifest it into our reality! Write down 5 affirmations about who you want to be, read them out loud to the mirror and really BELIEVE that they are possible. Do this every day to move toward the person you want to be and the life you want to live.
