The most powerful words you probably will ever hear are those words from within you. What you say to yourself. How you say them to yourself. And inevitably do you really believe your own words. Whether you speak positively or negatively to yourself? What you tell yourself is ultimately who you will become. One of the most important things you can do for your own good is to speak to yourself truthfully and positively. Talk to yourself about where you are now and where you want to be. It’s like smiling on the inside. You and you alone can brighten up your day. Yes, YOU! Be positive to yourself. Talk nice to yourself. Your words reflect how you feel about yourself more than how you feel about others. Tell yourself, “I’m OK”, “I’ll make it” and “I can do this”.
“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence,
but it comes from within. It is there all the time.”
“Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.”
Norman Vincent Peale
“It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.”
“Is what I am saying loving, compassionate, kind, empowering, or insightful?”
