Every person has an internal process called self-talk and this is when you make statements or affirmations to yourself in your mind or out loud. Self-talk will occur multiple times throughout the day from the second you get up until you go to sleep. You can experience both positive and negative self-talk. For example, have you ever been exercising and in your mind thought, “I can’t do this.” Or when working told yourself you are useless when you have made a mistake. These are forms of negative self-talk. Using the same examples but with positive self-talk when exercising you would be saying, “Come on! I can do this! I’m not giving up!” And if you made a mistake at work you would say, “Mistakes happen, I will learn from this and do better next time.” These thoughts influence your actions. Negative self-talk chips away at confidence and reduces your ability to believe you can get things done. Positive self-talk leads to positive beliefs about yourself. This in turn will lead to positive outcomes such as you putting in more effort. Be aware of your thoughts today and focus on being positive about yourself and your capabilities. If you become aware of negative self-talk then replace this with a positive counter statement.
