The way that we speak to ourselves has the ability to make or break our confidence, our relationships and our personal and professional growth. It’s true; you can ask pretty much any self-help guru or personal coach. That’s because our brains are very complicated but also very simple in that they are built to obey us.
For example, you tell yourself you’re not attractive. The chances are every time you look at yourself in the mirror you’re going to see someone unattractive, no matter what anyone else says. Or maybe you tell yourself you’re “not good enough to do X job,” the chances are you won’t even apply for that job simply out of a lack of confidence and then you’ll never know.
It’s a harsh circle and, understandably, one that is difficult to break. But the good news is that you can nip your negative self-talk in the bud simply by changing the narrative in your brain. Then sit back and watch how positive daily affirmations and growth-based self-talk can make you happier, more confident, resilient and more successful.
How to Create Affirmations That Produce A Growth Mindset
So now that you know that negative self-talk is dragging you down and you want to be riding high, feeling confident, happy, loved and successful, you’re probably wondering how you can make that change. Well, it’s important to know that the way you speak to yourself is just as important as the words you say. Cognitive tests have shown that the brain reacts most powerfully to the verb in a sentence, because that’s the part of the sentence that we can best relate to and act on.
