What is Internal Dialogue?
Internal Dialogue is the voice in our head that says I can do that, or I’m not capable of that. You talk with yourself thousands of times each day and sometimes you aren’t even aware of it. This voice influences a lot in your life sometimes for the positive and other times for the negative. When you are having a negative thought about something or someone it makes it harder to achieve success or create happiness in that area.
Positive self talk
Start listening to yourself and the things you are positive about. Once you recognize these positive thoughts, start building upon them. These are the foundations you can build upon and create a strong base for yourself. If you think you are a nice person, point that out to yourself in areas of your life where you have been nice and it will reinforce these thoughts and open up. The possibility of creating new positive thoughts.
Recognize where you are having struggles in your life. Then ask yourself what do I think about this? More than likely you are struggling because you have some negative thought process going on. When you realize what your negative thought is, all you need to do is move it to one step towards a neutral or positive thought. Have you ever heard the saying money doesn’t grow on trees?
