Listen To Your Inner Conversations
“Guess who’s the number one person you communicate with on a daily basis? It’s you! Our internal conversations characterize how we view the world and influence every part of our lives- relationships, achievements, attitude and ultimately our degree of happiness.”
Todd Smith, Entrepreneur and Network Marketer
Holding inner conversations with yourself can be a very useful exercise. We all do it, all the time, but the question is do we listen to what we are saying or just let the thoughts drift through our minds paying little attention to the consequences?
These conversations goes on from the moment of waking until falling asleep. However, a lot of energy, time and attention are wasted on small unimportant incidents
Positive Inner Conversations
You must learn to listen to what you are telling yourself. It is very easy to get into a negative frame of mind, sinking deeper and deeper, just because we started have a negative thought. Be aware when you start to sink and pull yourself back from the brink before it is too late!
When you start to have a negative inner conversation, listen. Get into the habit of intervening on your own behalf to change your emotional reaction to events. Negative inner dialogues bring negative results, and positive inner dialogues bring positive results.
Don’t Lose Focus
We all have times when we get into an emotional tail spin. We have a melt down and lose focus. Don’t beat yourself up over this. Don’t make it into a major setback.
Once you start to develop a good relationship with your inner voice, you will learn to deal with obstacles and see them in a more realistic context. You will be able to tell yourself that things pass, and it will get better. Refocus and move on. Don’t dwell on past events that you have no control over.
Celebrate Your Inner Conversations
When you find yourself reacting to a negative situation as an opportunity instead of a setback, congratulate yourself as you are now on your way to a more balanced life. By persisting, you will learn how to keep your cool even when provoked.
