My self-talk has a powerful effect on my life, so I pay attention to what I say to myself.
I maintain a high level of awareness of my self-talk. I know that negative self-talk can have derogatory effects on my mood, decisions, actions, and results. For this reason, I make it a priority to think kindly of myself and use encouraging self-talk to uplift my spirits.
I have the power to control my self-talk. When I catch myself saying negative things to myself, I purposely change the narrative to say positive things to myself instead.
I have the ability to use positive self-talk to my advantage. I choose to say things that support me and drive me toward my objectives.
I make myself a more powerful and capable person by utilizing positive self-talk.
I accept that it can be challenging to always be positive, but I do the best that I can. I am up for this challenge. Each day, I become better at avoiding negativity. Each day, I am more accepting of positive thoughts and ideas. My brain is rewiring itself to be more optimistic.
Today, I only pay attention to my positive thoughts and self-talk that supports me. I avoid all negative thoughts and self-talk. I am very optimistic about today and about the rest of my life.
