This process of mental self-exploration increased my ability to remain calm and think sharply during times of stress and adversity in my life. It has provided me strength, clarity, and the awareness to select thoughts that support my desired outcome in any given situation. I have found true happiness and abundance, but most importantly I have found peace.
Reality is significantly determined by our internal dialogue or self-talk. Taking time to become conscious of this very conversation is the most empowering decision that a human being can make in their lifetime.
Remember, you become what you think about all day long. You wake up with it, you walk around with it, you go to work with it and you go to sleep with it— eventually you are going to act on it, good (positive thoughts) or bad (negative thoughts). Become conscious of your self-talk through strategies like mediation and mindfulness by using apps like “Calm” or “Headspace,” and use it to find clarity in your mind, which will have a compounding effect in every aspect of your life. Your life will move in the direction of your thoughts and words. Speak victory, not defeat.
