Using Positive Self-Talk to Conquer Any Goal

Do you feel you sometimes talk yourself out of success? Just as you start to set goals, do you get nagging thoughts about how you aren't up to the task or how you simply aren't qualified to carry it through? Are you paralyzed by doubt?

If you have ever experienced any of these situations, you need to change the way you respond to your inner dialogue. Your inner dialogue is what you say to yourself. Instead of telling your mind to obey your negative commands, you can use positive self-talk to counter the negativity and overcome nearly all anxious thoughts.

You don't turn away from the negative... you run away!

Setting Goals and Sticking to Them with Positive Self-Talk

Are you initially filled with excitement when you first set goals for yourself? Are these thoughts then followed by self-doubt and self-defeating thoughts that stop you in your tracks before you even get started? You are excited, then scared, then pumped, then nervous, then gung-ho, then doubtful... and that's the first five minutes.

It can be difficult to make the most of your life when you are constantly talking yourself out of being a success. It can be frustrating and discouraging to have these thoughts constantly plaguing you. Many of us, in fact, don't even realize we have them! All we know is that we don't have the confidence to stick to our plans and reach our goals.

But there is another way!

Positive self-talk is an effective way to set goals and ensure that you stick to them, even if you have never been able to do this before. The way this works is that you decide what goal is important to you, and then you plan the logistics of how you are going to attain this goal. When self-doubt starts kicking in, you will respond with affirmations that prove your success without surrendering to the negative pressure. Since you're reading this article, it's clear that you're no quitter and you're certainly not a failure, so start believing in yourself! I believe you can accomplish anything you decide to do.

Re-Programming Your Mind

Affirmations are essentially positive statements that re-program the mind for positive outcomes. The moment you have a self-defeating thought you counter that negative with a motivating statement. An example of a positive affirmation is: "I am worthy of great success," or "I see myself in the winner's circle." What this does is replace negativity with thoughts that will help you move toward your goals instead of further away from them.

Positive self-talk is easier to implement than you might think. Right now you may not be aware of the severity of the negative dialogue within your mind. However, once you begin with positive self-talk, you will realize how you are self-sabotaging your goals right from the minute that you make them. The self-talk process will open your eyes to exactly how much this inner conversation has been interfering with your life. You'll begin feel hopeful that you can now set goals and surpass them.

Through positive self-talk you will be able to set long and short-term goals for yourself. And when you use affirmations, you'll have a proven tool to help you push yourself further than ever before. Learning to quiet negativity with positive thoughts is a great move toward setting and attaining future goals with ease.
