Becoming Your Own Best Friend Through Healthy Internal Dialogue

When we are able to look within and draw upon our own strength and wisdom to guide our decision-making, we give ourselves an incredible advantage in life. Specifically, the way we direct our thoughts will determine how we feel and ultimately, the actions we take.

We are constantly having silent, internal conversations with ourselves. For most of us, this happens unconsciously. But when we bring it into our consciousness and begin to actually control what we’re saying to ourselves, all new possibilities open up to us.

The key is to transform our self-talk from negatives into positives. Negative self-talk can lead to debilitating inaction. You don’t get the results you want in life because you’ve already convinced yourself that you can’t… or that you’re not worthy. When you turn this around and start telling yourself that you are capable and worthy, the world suddenly becomes a much brighter place. You see people and situations differently. You become lighter.

Everything we experience in our lives, be it material or internal, begins with the thoughts in our head. Change the way you think and you change the way you feel. Change the way you feel and you change the way you behave. Change your behavior and you change your reality. When problems arise, you can handle them quickly and graciously. When life knocks you down, you can get back on your feet within minutes.

Directing your mind in a way that produces positivity and optimism allows you to see problems for what they are because you are not being emotionally crushed by them. Actually, most problems become mere challenges that you don’t mind solving. In fact, sometimes you may even enjoy it!

When you hear people talking about “mixed emotions,” that is a sure sign that they are not controlling their inner dialog. When we take control, we can choose if we want to be negative and tear ourselves down, or be strong, confident, and positive so that we can enjoy our lives and produce amazing results.

Daily Self-Talk – Keeping It Positive:

Developing the habit of using positive self-talk on a consistent, daily basis is a great way to institute a new way of thinking. Unfortunately, you will most likely be starting with a pre-existing negative thought pattern that has become well-established over the years, so if you don’t become positive overnight, don’t fret. Just be patient and consistent.

A great way to begin the process is to repeat positive incantations (emotionally charged affirmations) at least fifty times each day. This is actually quite simple. Just think of something you would like to believe about yourself or life in general, write it down in clear, positive words, and repeat these words (aloud is preferable, but silently is okay, too) with as much positive emotion as you can over and over again. The power of cultivating a positive dialogue with yourself is undeniable. You can break addictions, dramatically enhance your self-confidence, improve your relationships, earn more money, enjoy better health, and live your best life each and every day.

Examples of Positive Incantations:

  • “I am an effective problem-solver. I am far more powerful than my problems and can handle them like they’re just little toys.”
  • “I love challenges. I was built for challenges. Come on, life, give me more challenges!”
  • “I am an exceptional leader. I make this world a better place by setting a stunning example of confidence, effectiveness, and kindness.”
  • “I’ve got total mastery of this situation. I hope it doesn’t think it can pose a threat to me. That’s just silly!”
  • “I radiate vibrant health and energy. I am a living example of physical health and fitness.”
  • “I love life and life loves me!”
