When it comes to achieving your business goals do you feel like it is impossible or that everyone else can do it but you?
Do you feel like you aren’t meant to be successful? Do you feel like nothing you ever do works?
Do you feel like you try and try and you might as well give up because nothing is working? How did these questions make you feel? Positive or negative?
Have you ever said and of these negative self talk statements to yourself?
I’m not good enough.
I can’t do it.
I don’t know enough.
I’m not smart enough to do this.
So and so is way better at this than me.
Why would anyone purchase from me.
I can’t sponsor anyone into my company.
I might as well not try because no one will listen to me anyway.
While I do not have the time to list ever possible negative self talk statement and they vary from person to person, you do get my point. Does this type of self talk make you feel good about yourself? Of course not. Would you tolerate another person talking to you like that. No, you would think that they rude and cruel to talk to you that way.
Why be rude and cruel to yourself? Do you know that your negative self talk can influence you in a major way?
How much better does it feel when you think positive. Too much energy is wasted on negativity. If you feel you can’t do something then you will not because you have already decided that it is impossible.
Turn your negative into a positive.
Example: I’m not smart enough to do this can become – I will research and try my best to learn from those who know more than I do and I will ask questions when I need to and take the time to fully absorb the answer and apply what I learn.
If you feel that you can do something you will strive and work hard towards achieving that goal or mini goal. Every goal does not have to be major as they all add up to the big picture.
Even if it takes a while as most things worth doing take time you will keep striving and feel good while you are doing it because you are thinking positive and that fills you with the hope that you can achieve your goal even if takes twists, turns, tweaks and changes to get there.
