Star and Flag. This is a very wonderful topic that you have brought up!
"Declaring war on negative self talk is taking back the power of intention and success for ourselves. This is not an attack on risk assessment
this is an intention based construct in its purest form."
I will share a technique that I have used to fight off negative inner talk:
First, you must become mindful of all your thoughts/emotions in the first place. Know
and be aware of negative, positive, and neutral
thoughts/emotions as often as you can 'remember' to be aware. Next, determine your realistic goals and decide which type of emotional state you want
to be in more often. This is knowing, and knowing is half the battle!
We can help to re-write our subconscious mind. This is important because our subconscious mind plays a part in shaping our thoughts, emotions, and
actions. Get some paper or a notebook. On a piece of paper, write one realistic goal. Write the goal in positive wording only. When you write the
goal, say it aloud also. Do you hear the voice of doubt? The inner dialogue of criticism, fear, uncertainty, negativity? Listen to this voice, do not
'block it out,' you must acknowledge it. Tell this voice, "I can do this," or think of a reason that you can
accomplish your goal....
either say it or write it on the next line below your goal. Then write your goal again and say it aloud. Still hear the negative inner voice? Again,
say "I can do this," and re-write your goal and say it aloud. Keep doing this over and over. Take your time doing each step, this is not a writing
race, this is subconscious programming. Taking your time, repeat this exercise until that little voice goes away. It may take you 10 repetitions, it
may take you the entire paper, it may take several sheets of paper until the negative inner voice begins to subside.
• How/Why this works: You are thinking, writing, saying, and reading your goal. You are manifesting on so many levels! Just like a song can get
stuck in your head, and just like subliminal advertising, repitition burns things into your brain.
