ZERO TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
THE SECOND INNER VOICE - YOU TALKING TO YOUR MIND
The second voice is what you
say when you talk to your mind. This voice changes who you are
by changing what you put into your mind.
You donít have to wait for
years to make your life better. You can do it today using
positive self-talk. What you say when you talk to yourself
changes who you are right now, and it guarantees your future
will be different from your past. Not only will it be
different, it will be better if you put positive things into
Self-talk contains the script
for the rest of your life. That script goes straight into your
memory banks, and you replay it dozens of times each day.
Some people denigrate positive
self-talk, implying itís a trip to Pollyanna. They mock and
accuse you of looking at the world through rose-colored
glasses. These cynics and critics have a bias in favor of
negative self-talk. As long as you tell yourself everything you
canít do, your self-talk is perfectly acceptable. But the
moment your self-talk turns positive, you become the object of
their scorn. They regard positive self-talk as a sign of
weakness. To them itís nothing but internal hype. They tell
you to grow up and leave fantasyland behind. Face reality and
accept the world as it is. Stop all that foolish palaver about
unlimited potential and living your dreams.
One of the smartest things you
will ever do is to ignore the voice of the cynics and critics.
Most of them live in Nowhere Land and have never done anything
positive with their lives. They arenít qualified to advise you
about your self-talk or your potential for greatness, and you
donít want them to write the script for your life.
YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO WRITE YOUR OWN POSITIVE SELF-TALK
You donít need to be a genius
or hire a consultant to write your positive self-talk. You have
been creating it on your own for your entire life, and now isnít
the time to start believing you donít know how. If you have a
purpose, plan, and dream, you have everything required to write
POWERFUL SELF-TALK COMES NINETY
PERCENT FROM THE HEART
Powerful self-talk comes ninety
percent from the heart and ten percent from the head.
For most people, emotion is the
most powerful component of the language of the mind. There is a
world of difference between saying, ďTake this job and shove
it,Ē compared with saying, ďI have decided to quit my job.Ē The
world of difference comes from the emotional impact of the first
statement compared with the second. The first statement is
packed full of emotion and evokes the image of power and
self-assurance, and the second statement sounds lame.
Make sure your self-talk comes
from your heart rather than just from your head. Donít waste
your time or do things the hard way by using self-talk that
Usually itís better to state
self-talk in positive terms rather than negative. You want its
focus to take you in a positive direction rather than a negative
Your self-talk will be more
effective if itís specific and if it uses all of the sensory
modalities of the language of the mind. If it has strong
auditory, visual, and emotional components, it will have a
greater impact. Powerful self-talk lets you hear the sound of
your dreams while you watch them on the motion picture screen of
your mind, and it lets you feel their motivating power.
Positive self-talk allows you to say your dreams, see your
dreams, and feel your dreams even before they happen.
Read books on how to write
powerful self-talk and take their advice when itís helpful. But
donít become enslaved to writing self-talk to a formula that is
supposed to work according to the experts. Sticking to formulas
guarantees your scripting will feel stiff and artificial.
Good self-talk is more like
poetry than prose. It should be music to your ears rather than
a cognitive assessment of where you are and what you need to
do. The most effective self-talk contains powerful thoughts
written into a melody you enjoy singing to yourself all day
long. You repeat it many times each day because it has the ring
of truth and moves you in the direction of your dreams.
