Combating Negative Thinking with Positive Self-Talk

Do you talk yourself out of being excited and hopeful every time you feel good about yourself? Do you often start out feeling confident in yourself and your abilities, and then drop to zero confidence when your inner dialogue kicks in?

This negative thinking is something many people struggle with, but there’s a better way.
 
You can combat negative thoughts with positive-self talk instead of letting an automatic negative thought process rule your life.
 
Negative Thinking, Positive Self-Talk, and You
 
Many people lack the confidence to realize that they deserve to feel good about themselves. These people never pay attention to the fact that they are the ones telling themselves that they don’t deserve rewards.
 
Are you one of these people? You can discover if you are sabotaging yourself by tuning into your thoughts and listening. What do you hear? Are you encouraging yourself with positive thoughts? Or are your thoughts filled with negatives?
  • You may not even realize how negative thinking may be dominating your life. This may be something that you deal with daily and have come to see as normal. However, it’s only normal if you allow it to be that way!
Positive self-talk is the practice of responding to negative thoughts that run through your mind. For example, when you tell yourself that you can’t possibly land the job because you aren’t good enough, you can respond with positive thoughts that do not leave room for negativity. These thoughts can be as simple or complex as you like. The important thing is that you continue to think positively.
  • Positive self-talk allows you to be the one controlling your thoughts!
Many people pair positive self-talk with affirmations. Affirmations are simple statements you can repeat to yourself over and over again. You can allow these thoughts to become true for you. The process is as subconscious as it is conscious.
 
When you continue to reaffirm the positive thought, you will make it true for yourself until you eventually don’t need to remind yourself to think that way.
  • Affirmations are positive statements that replace your negative thought processes. You can change your life one thought at a time!
When you are feeling low and thinking negatively about yourself or your future, try saying, “I give myself permission to be successful,” or “I see myself in the winner’s circle.”
 
Strive to replace your negative statements with positive thoughts when you repeat your affirmations. Soon it will become second nature to repeat your affirmations anytime that you start to think negatively.
  • With positive self-talk you can truly change the course of your life. You can go from being a negative person with no hope for the future, to being an optimist who can achieve anything you put you mind to.
Does this mean that there won’t be challenges along the way, or that you’ll never fail? No, because those things are a part of life. But what it will mean is that you’ll have a better attitude, which will allow you to grasp the very best that life has to offer.
 
Positive self-talk isn’t difficult and it’s worth the effort that is involved because it can truly change the way you view yourself and the world that you live in.

Die kaizen wealth uitdaging is iets wat ek al lankal moes gedoen het. Ek is "n regte boertjie wat moeilik leer maar dan onthou vir altyd. Om die daaglikse eentonige roetine te verander vir die groter goedheid is die grootste uitdaging wat enigeen kan aanpak.   Ek het nog nooit ingesien hoe nietig en klein Read more...

Thank you Hannes for the opportunity to participate in the Kaizen Challenge. One of the biggest realizations for me on the course was just how influential my thoughts are in determining what my course of action in life is. Read more...

I approached the Kaizen Challenge at first very skeptically mainly due to the fact that I have already started reading self improvement books and though I know it all already. I had some successes but mainly failures (and mostly in terms of money). I never realized why as I thought as I exhibiting the right behaviors and Read more...

Die Kaizen Challenge het my omtrent heeltemal verander. Ek het myself nooit voorheen gesien as “een” met die skepping nie. Dit alleen was al klaar `n wonderlike besef en ervaring.Voorheen ek het met my voertuig net baie ongeduldig van punt A na Punt B gery en ek het my nie gesteur aan my omgewing nie. Nou kan ek egter verstaan hoekom ry die karre so vreeslik stadig oor die Read more...
