We all experience positive and negative self-talks on a regular basis. Realize it or not, you probably have the same internal conversations over and over: two opposing voices competing every day and every minute for our mindset. One says, "You can't, so don't even try!" The other voice says, "Go ahead and try – the worst thing that happens is you learn something new!"
Over time I have learned that these internal conversations are crucial to the success or failure of everything I do, from my business ventures to my day-to-day activities. They play a critical role in my ability – or inability – to meet challenges and achieve success in life and at work. If I let the negative self-talk win more often than the positive self-talk, I start to let my bad experiences limit what I do in the future. I fall into a pattern of avoiding potentially risky decisions, losing not only confidence but also hope. As an entrepreneur, that is the last thing I want to do.
Success comes from winning the & # 39; battle in your head & # 39; – not allowing negative thoughts to drown out the positive. Too often negative self-talk picks up a bad experience and turns it into a bright red light. But success comes from turning every experience, good or bad, into an opportunity to learn and grow. The key is to realize that the choice is yours and no one else. Here are 6 steps to start winning the battle in your head:
- Choose Positivity: Choose a positive mindset is the first and most important step to future success. You need to understand and deeply internalize the fact that winning the battle in your head is the most important thing you can do. It is step one in your long journey of growth and success. You can and will achieve great things as long as you start with a strong belief in yourself. According to Buddha, everything we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we will become. Take that to heart.
- List Positive Thoughts: Start by listing your personal accomplishments and positive attributes. No matter how much we struggle or how often we let negative thoughts speak too loudly, it's important to also remember the accomplishments that made us proud and the personal traits that helped us on our journey. It's helpful to remind yourself by writing everything down and reviewing your notes periodically. About those when that negative voice comes back at the first opportunity, back it up by simply referring to your notes. side, catch yourself. Take the time to get out of the thought completely and then put in a counter argument to turn it into something more positive. For example, rephrase & # 39; I'm a terrible public speaker & # 39; in & # 39; With a little practice, I bet I can become a better public speaker & # 39 ;. Be aware of how often you let the negative win, and proactively turn that script over each time. The more you do this, the more it becomes a habit, and you will slowly start to change.
- Realize You're Not Alone : Accept that failure is part of life – for everyone. Everyone has had their own doubts, been through a setback, and probably more often than you think. And not being defined by failure is a challenge we all face. Don't let failure define you or differentiate yourself for it. Everyone has failed. It's how we respond to failure that counts.
- Don't Let the Past Define You : As Dan Millman wrote, the secret to change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but building the new. This is a choice anyone can make. Only you can prevent the negativity of your previous experiences, relationships, and treatment from others from determining your future. Choose not to let your past obscure your future, and you will begin to see and create the life you dream of. Your brighter future can begin now – with a mindset that propels you forward into the future, instead of back to the past.
- Consider Your Daily Wins: Here's another habit that can be a powerful lever for change: Keep a log of your "wins." At the end of each day, write down three things that went well. Write down what happened, how it went well, and what positive thoughts it gave you. You give space to let the positive voice be heard. The more you build this list, the more you fill your mind with positive beliefs, and you will begin to see a change in how you approach each action and decision – as an opportunity, not a potential danger.
It's hard to win. in life until you win the battle with yourself. And the first step starts with realizing that you have a choice. You can choose to win the battle in your head instead of giving in to it. Training to do this starts with every decision you make throughout the day, from the smallest to the largest. Ultimately, winning the battle in your head results in self-confidence. And this confidence builds up if you let it – and it will take you by leaps and bounds into the future.
