We don’t always listen to our own self-talk. We tend to tune ourselves out, figuring it’s all the “same old same old.” After a while, we might not be hearing it anymore. This becomes a real problem when the self-talk turns negative.
Negative self-talk is what holds us back. It keeps us from accomplishing the things we could and can affect our health if it goes on long enough. On the other hand, positive self-talk is what gets us where we want to go. It boosts us when we need a jolt to set us into motion. It inspires and enables us to get to where we want to go.
