I know you have been told to listen more than you talk.
That is correct when in conversation with someone else.
But it is not true when you are in conversation with yourself.
Hang in there with me.
I recently heard a story about a world-class triathlete.
He was asked why he was such a successful athlete.
His answer was I talk to myself more than I listen to myself.
That is exactly right.
Remember your brain’s job is to:
- Avoid pain
- Seek pleasure
- Be efficient
Your brain is talking to you all the time.
If you just thought about the above sentence,
That is your brain talking to you.
Since your brain’s job is to keep you safe.
It is always on the lookout for danger.
Ask yourself how often you think or say:
- I can’t do that.
- That makes me uncomfortable.
- I would never …
- I don’t want to …
- I wish I didn’t …
- I shouldn’t have …
- I’m not smart enough.
- I’m not good enough.
- I can’t figure this out.
- I’m not as capable as …
- I feel inadequate.
- I must have done something wrong.
- I really made a mess of it.
- I blew it.
All of that and more is you listening to your brain.
And guess what your brain is beating you up.
It is sabotaging you.
Think of it like your brain punching you in the face.
Would you let someone punch your kid in the face?
You would protect your child.
So, the question is why aren’t you protecting you?
It is important to understand you haven’t done anything wrong.
You just didn’t know you needed to protect your thinking.
Your brain hasn’t done anything wrong either.
Your brain is simply acting on autopilot without any training.
But it doesn’t have to continue like this.
You can retrain your brain.
You can tell it what to think.
You can talk more than you listen to your brain.
Here are some great questions to ask yourself every day to help retrain your brain:
- What do I love about myself?
- What am I grateful for?
- How can I live my best life?
- What thought about myself will empower me today?
- I know I am valuable because I _________________________________
Finally, I want you to realize your worthiness.
Tell yourself daily you are worthy.
God/The Universe doesn’t make junk.
And God/The Universe made you!
Spend time daily talking greatness into yourself.
Listen less to the autopilot thoughts of your brain.
Doing this can totally change your life.
