Mindset Monday – Negative Self Talk

When presented with a challenging task, does the routinely-successful person say things like, “I’ll never be able to do that” or “I’m going to suck at this”? Nope. They think positively, generate some confidence and give it a try. If they don’t succeed, they think about how they could have done it differently and they realize that achieving the task/goal demands a process.

Words are powerful! All to often, we hear negative self talk…”I’m so weak,” “I feel like a fool when I do this,” etc. It’s heart-breaking. We are all capable of taking steps forward and sure, some people grasp movements/concepts faster than others, but not believing in and/or verbally assaulting yourself never ends well.

You are worth more than that. Don’t self-sabotage by demeaning your efforts. Instead, pay attention to instruction or details. Think or say, “I’m going to give it my best try” or “I got this!” We are all more capable than we sometimes realize.
