The power of self talk

The power of self talk

Do you watch yourself talk?  Do you know what the power of self talk is? 

Depression, sadness, killing, rape, insult, cancer, assassination, betrayal, hell, torment, rape, crying, bitterness, volcano, pain, suffering, earthy quake, poverty…

What kind of emotions do you feel now after reading these words? Do you feel some kind of pain in your body? Perhaps shortness of breath? Have these negative words affected your feelings and emotions?  Do you know what the power of self talk is?

The words that you say, speak, and hear affect your feelings and emotions and lead you to where you don’t want to be. Most of these negative thinking effects people in a direct and indirect way and they end up not knowing why they feel negative.

All of these words and experiences get stored in the subconscious mind and they end up effecting your emotions and feelings and could lead to depression, irritability, sadness among other things.

As I mentioned in my book “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals” that from now on, you have to pay attention to what you read, watch, see, hear, and speak. Learn to watch your thoughts all the time especially before you go to sleep.

It is sad that many people love to read pages of newspapers and magazines that talk about accidents, earth quakes, suffering, poverty among other negative issues. All of these negative issues will manifest in your life if your keep thinking about them.

Negative thoughts are a serious problem that affects everyone’s life, which is why it is important that you learn to clean up your mind of these negative issues. It is crucial that people try to disseminate positive ideas in the community and the house that they live in.

Now, I want you to think about the following words: happiness, serenity, tranquility, appreciation, sincerity, gratitude, love, heaven, paradise, family, friends, God, dreams, hope, sunshine, compassion, kindness, nature, water, wealth, money, prosperity, loyalty…

See what kind of emotions you will experience and have after meditating and thinking about those positive words.

Always remember what Willie Nelson said, “Once your replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”

    I don’t think we can ever fully replace negative thoughts. In a way they are emotions that serve an important function. We feel fear when we think we are in danger, anger when something goes wrong, etc.

    However, you are right that too much negativity can be incredibly damaging on our soul. It’s important that we don’t attach to the negative stories we tell ourselves, “I can’t do that,” or “I suck!”

    Good article, keep it up, and I’ll be coming back for more.

      Hi Steve,

      We can’t fully replace negative thoughts, but instead of thinking negatively 80% and 20% posivitily, we can do the opposite, where 80% is positive and 20% is negative. It is a process that we have to keep work on it all the time.

  2. I agree that what we say, watch, read, etc. greatly influence our attitude and emotions. For a while now Iv e been trying to only watch “feel good movies”. It’s been a nice experiment. I’ve noticed a difference since I’ve been avoiding the news, violent shows, horror movies, and so on. There is more peace in my life when I’m surrounded with more positive influences.

    Thanks for the reminder. Great post! Loving blessings!

      Hi Andrea,

      Exactly once we start focusing on the positivity and positive stuff in our life, we start to notice a difference.

    This is so powerfully true – words can change your life, period. As a hypnotherapist, I use soothing, positive language when in session with a client and I’m always amazed at the physical transformation that happens when people are repeatedly exposed to words that uplift them, as opposed to the negative self-talk they often put themselves through. I’m always trying to police what I say in conversation and I tell my kids all the time that their word are magic so they must use them very carefully. Great post!

      Hi Tisha,

      This is so true, words have huge words. The more we repeat positive words and statements to ourselves, the more they become ingrained in us.

  4. Dia,

    Is self talk is positive, it does many good things. Some of us are in to negative self talk without realizing it and it does not help and makes us doubt on our path that we are taking.

    • Dia says:

      Hi Preeti,

      This is true my friend. Many people talk to themselves negatively without realizing how it is leading them to the negative path. Once we start watching our self talk and start talking positively, we will notice a huge difference in our life.

    There is so much great information include in this post. It is so important that you manage what you expose yourself to because often what goes in comes out. So I agree surround yourself with positive things and positive influences and watch your life transform.

    • Dia says:

      Hi Frank,

      This is true my friend, once we surround ourselves with positive thoughts, our life transforms for the better, we accomplish things more easily and become happier.

  6. The serious problem is that the power of that self talk makes you want the bad feelings even more. Especially with depression and sadness. You will find yourself not even trying to get out of it because you like it in a sick sort of way. Been there, done that. Still trying to get out.

    • Dia says:

      Hi Brandon,

      If you try to analyze why you talk negatively to yourself and start watching your self talk, you will be on the road to conquering your depression and sadness. You have to convince your subconscious mind that life is beautiful and you can become happy. It all starts from within.

    Excellent article. I’d add a related scenario where others introduce more negativity than necessary. This is one area that’s hard to ‘control what you hear.’ In those cases where parents constantly stress the negative, children have to make up for the negativity by seeking out positive ‘hearing’ later in life, if they’re lucky. At work managers try to avoid some of this by softening the ‘bad’ with the ‘good’ behaviour or encouragement that person can ‘get there’. Often the mind envisions the worse and the stress makes it a reality. Your techniques are perfect for counteracting what life throws at you.

      Hi SBA,

      Yea, many people tend to focus on negativity a lot. We should be careful of every person that tries to put us down and keep looking for the opportunities in every situation.

  8. I’ve always been a big fan of the concept “Consecutive Thought Control”. It’s the practice of monitoring your thoughts and as negative ideas spring up in your head, you immediately counterbalance them with positive thoughts or mantras.

    It’s kind of an exhausting practice, keeping up with your continuous thinking but it does allow you eventually form a habit of thinking more positively in general. I talk about this process in a recent post.
