Statistically about 77% of self talk is negative. Wow, 3 out of 4 thoughts you have are negative...that is before anyone else speaks. Think then how great it would be if you could reduce that %. It isn't easy though, so what can you do to help build that inner sefl confidence ?
Well I am a great believer in sleep.... if you are tired then it is harder to control those inner thoughts. If you find you are being negative with your words..take a break. A walk at lunch, a friday off. The world will be able to cope ! Secondly, we need to control the words we use. Substitute "I have to" with "I chose to" - after all you don't have to do anything except die and take up space....the rest well it is up to you. When you understand that, and take control of your mind you feel more motivated.
