What you say to yourself matters. If you are constantly feeding your brain negative thoughts.
What will you get? ….Negative results.
I think it is time to address self-talk.
I won’t be long winded this morning I know we all have things to do.
So Let’s just look at a few.
“I can’t do this”. ( you have already given up). Say Yes I can
“This is hard”. (That is a reality yes but say no weapon formed against me will prosper, yes I can!.)
“I am struggling”. (Sounds like you will never make it).
Change your words say what is going on so we can address it.
“I will never make it”. “Say Yes I can make it”.
“I never could do anything right”. Believe that you can do all things.
“I am so stupid”. You are doomed if you keep saying this one. What a man thinks so is he.
“I look terrible”. How about a makeover every now and then won’t hurt. Lol New way new life.
Get unstuck out of your rut. Make yourself pretty.
Tell yourself good things.
“I can make it. I can do this,I am beautiful, i am smart, I am a nonsmoker. No matter what comes I will not fail. I am good at what I do. I am worth it”.
Get the idea. Change what you are telling yourself and change your life. One of life’s greatest motivational tools I have found is self-talk. Use it. It WORKS! I created my own mantra. Make your own.
My mantra: Not in my hands, not on my lips, not on my tongue, not in my lungs, not in my throat, I will not choke, not up not nose, not in my clothes. I use to sing, cheer, hum, recite, blog, think, and believe it.
I am a nonsmoker”. Say it with fierceness.
How could I ever smoke again if I vowed never to put one in my hand? Get it? Create your own self-talk it works. It has taken me a long way. 685 days of freedom. No matter what NOPE. Hang tough, type HELP when you need it. Protect your quit.
