How to Finally Defeat Negative Self Talk
Hi, this is Tony Teegarden with TonyTeegarden.com, and in this video I’m going to share with you the one question that you can ask yourself that can possibly eliminate negative self-talk and stop it dead in its tracks. But first, I want to share with you why this is so important.
So why is getting and handle on negative self-talk so important? Well, simply because it’s not a lot of fun, and it probably doesn’t feel good. But besides that, you’re also looking at it impacting things like your business, your family, your relationships, and your overall wealth-building and, of course, your emotional stability. It’s absolutely imperative that you make sure that you’re speaking to yourself in the highest good possible, and if not, then it’s going to have negative consequences in all of these other areas.
What Does Negative Self Talk Sound LIke?
So what does negative self-talk sound like? Well, let’s take your business for example. Have you been wanting to shoot video but just simply didn’t feel that you maybe could pull it off well, or maybe you sound stupid? Well guess what? Chances are that’s a sign of negative self-talk.
Now, I’m going to share with you here in just a moment what that one question is and how you can eliminate this self-talk. But first take a moment and ask yourself, where is this showing up in your life right now? Of course, the main thing when I’m working with clients is that I’m focused on their business, but nine times out of ten it’s also focusing on the inner work and the inner world that makes some of the biggest impact on their business and their outer world and ultimately on their clients.
Here’s the ONE Question
All right, so enough waiting.
What’s the one question?
“Would you talk like that to a five-year-old?”
Bottom line is, when you catch yourself talking to yourself in ways where you say, “Well boy, that was stupid,” or “Boy, that’s dumb,” or even worst case scenario you say something like, “Wow, you really think that you can accomplish such a thing?”
Ask yourself this: Would you say that to a five-year-old?
Chances are you WOULD NOT.
Bonus Step To Banish Negative Self Talk and Shift Into Creativity
So what are some steps that you can take right now to begin to not only ask yourself this question on a daily basis, but to begin to eliminate this and begin to support your inner five-year-old? So here’s what I’m going to ask that you do.
This is the same process that I have followed several years ago when I would share this same process.
Grab a picture of yourself when you were 5 years old and carry it with you for the next 30, even 60 days.
Because you have to imagine, depending on your age, you’ve probably been talking to yourself like this for years, so it’s not like it’s going to eliminate itself immediately.
But carry that picture around with you and begin to look at it several times throughout the day and remind yourself, “How would I support this five-year-old? How would I support these endless possibilities that we know five-year-olds have today?”
Believe me, there’s no difference between when you were five and right now. The possibilities are endless. You just want to support yourself and communicating to yourself in a way that supports this and, of course, facilitates it.
So go ahead today, immediately go ahead and grab a picture of you when you were 5 years old and carry it with you throughout the next 30 to 60 days and support yourself and begin to experience new worlds of possibility.
