Positive Self-Talk Shapes Your Future

by Blair Evan Ball on October 17, 2013

Positive Self TallkDo you talk to yourself positively? Negatively?

What do you say when you talk to yourself?

We are always having an inner dialog with that still small voice in our brain. Reinforcing either good thoughts or negative thoughts. It affects our lives, our relationships, our career, and your business.

Looking for a Better Way

We have all heard what life is supposed to offer…

  • Endless Opportunities
  • Fulfillment of our dreams
  • A chance to live each day in a way that brings happiness and success

Have you ever wondered, then, why things don’t work out the way they should?

Mastering one’s future must surely start with managing one’s “SELF.”

The End Result of Your Own Thoughts

“As a Man Thinketh, so is he.”

It follows that if every action you take, of any kind, is affected by prior programming, then the end results of your actions are equally affected – in short, how successful you will be at anything is tied to the words and beliefs we have about ourselves.

Do you do communicate some of this self-talk that sounds like this?

  • I’m no good with computers
  • Social Media is for young people
  • I can’t market
  • I just know it won’t work
  • That’s just my luck
  • I don’t have enough time
  • I’m not successful
  • The market is too tough
  • Things change too fast
  • I can’t adapt
  • I’m too old
  • I’m too young
  • I’m too overweight

Good News…

You can start changing the programing right now. Today.

The brain simply believes what you tell it most. And what you tell it about you, it will create.

Supercharge Your Personality

The higher your self-esteem, the faster and easier it is for you to develop the

Success Habits that enable you to accomplish extraordinary things with your

life. Since everything you do on the outside is controlled by your subconscious

mind, by your current programming, as you change your self-concept, you change

your reality.

The Missing Ingredients

1. Permanence

All “External” Solutions are temporary. As Zig Ziglar use to say, is motivation permanent? No it something you have to do everyday like bathing. You have to apply constant attention and effort to see continual results.

2. Process

Without the understanding of how the human brain accepts information (Programming) you efforts will fall short. The brain runs the ship. If you want to make a permanent change of any kind, you’ve got to follow the rules.

3. Instructions

Your mind needs specific instructions, word for word. Give it clear and concise direction. The goal is to replace “old” programming with “NEW” Programming.

Think for a moment about some of the things you would like to accomplish or achieve in your life. Maybe it’s a little thing that’s been nagging at you. Your objective could be to earn more, do more, better family life, improve on you skills (Social Media Marketing and SEO come to mind) I know…I know…shameless plug, someone has to do it. I find a lot of the Boomers confused with this Social Media thing.

Whatever means you choose to make the change, unless your first begin to choose to make the change, unless you first begin to change your old “Programming,” the years of conditioning that keeps you doing it the OLD way, the likely outcome is that what you want to accomplish will not work – or will not last.

Action Exercises:

1. Identify the primary causes for the effects in your life. Why are you where

you are and what could you do differently to get different results?

2. On a scale of 1-10, how much do you feel that you are in control of your

life? What could you do to increase your feelings of control?

3. What do you think about most of the time? What should you focus and

concentrate on to improve your life?

4. What are the values, qualities and attributes of other people that you most

admire? What actions could you take to incorporate those values into your


5. How much do you like yourself? What are the experiences that give you

your greatest feelings of self-esteem, and how could you create more of


6. What are your greatest fears? How would you behave differently if you had

no fears at all?

7. What can you do, starting today, to feed your mind with more of the

thoughts, words, people and pictures that are more consistent with the very

best person you could be, and the most important goals you want to achieve?

“Man becomes a slave to his constantly repeated acts. What he at first chooses,

at last compels.” (Orison Swett Marden)

The race is on, and you are in it.
