In this episode, Cheddy and Michelle discuss:
- The conscious and subconscious aspects of self-talk
- Intentionality and consistency
- Making positivity a daily habit
- Thinking positively versus lying to yourself
- Self-talk has a conscious and subconscious aspect to it, and it is often grounded in your belief about yourself. Managing your inner conversation makes the difference between taking control of your own mind and letting your beliefs control you.
- You’ve probably said a lot of things to yourself that still affect you even now. It takes a lot of intentionality and consistency to correct those conversations and it starts by apologizing to yourself for telling yourself those things.
- Make healthy self-talk and positivity a daily habit. Prepare your vessel - your mind and your body - for the day that you’ll face. Life is inherently filled with negativity, so if you don’t intentionally put yourself in that headspace, you’re gonna fall into that default state.
- There’s a big difference between giving yourself positive self-talk and manipulating yourself to believe in something you don’t really think is real. See the positive things about reality, but authentically recognize that negative circumstances are part of that reality.
“Our inner critic is often there to protect ourselves, but what’s happening is that it’s really holding us back from the unlimited potential that we possess as human beings… What you can do to alter the reality of your life is with your self-talk.” - Michelle Wickman
