Our minds are powerful machines! The thoughts we produce can translate into action, and that is how we truly achieve greatness.
However, if we are filling our minds with negative comments about ourselves and our circumstances, we are creating boundaries for ourselves that we otherwise would not need to overcome. (Think of your mind as a computer. You must program it for efficiency to run smoothly and complete its task.) Your mind is the same way!
So instead of the negative self-talk examples, I listed before, try these instead:
-I can handle this
-I’m making progress
-I am in control of this
-I am willing to try
-I will eventually get it
-I have many likable qualities
-I do not need to compare myself to others
-I am complete as I am
-It’s normal to feel this way
And my personal favorite is a quote from John Lennon, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay; it's not the end.”
Do you have a favorite phrase you like to tell yourself when you’re presented with a struggle?
