I learned a long time ago that speech is a predictor of behavior. It is not pie in the sky to believe that the way we speak to ourselves largely influences our choices and behavior.We have the ability to alter our speech and when negativity dominates our thoughts to consciously change the words to positive ones. I recently read the following examples of positively altering the thoughts.:
Negative self-talk Positive thinking
I’ve never done it before. It’s an opportunity to learn
It’s too complicated. I’ll tackle it from a different angle.
I don’t have the resources. Necessity is the mother of invention.
I’m too lazy to get this done. I wasn’t able to fit it into my schedule, but I can re-examine some priorities.
There’s no way it will work. I can try to make it work
Today when the gloom and doom speech visits change the words consciously and there will be new choices that lead to more positive outcomes.
