Self Talk and Your Esteem

Self Talk and Your Esteem

Negative self talk was always key in stress management programs and the intriguing part about it was that most people didn’t want to discuss it. When you would mention the critic or the perfectionist language people would say .. oh boy, here we go again…this isn’t fun and I do not want to deal with it. Iv’e read that we make on an average, 400 plus negative statements a day to ourselves and about 12 –14 positive.

It is perhaps the leading esteem destroyer that we have and yet most people dismiss it’s impact. It is serious problem. On a good day you look in the mirror and say hey I look good. Someone else notices and you believe them. However on a bad day, you look in the mirror and say how stupid you look and someone says, you look fine and you say yeah right!!

If you talk bad to yourself then the people in your life will treat you the same way. If you talk loving to yourself I guarantee you that other people treat you with the same love.

Speak to yourself with respect, and friendship and kindness and compassion and see how your life changes.

The Universe, reflecting the essence and power of God, continues to expand and to grow. We cannot avoid or deny the effects of living in an infinite universe.  It is more than our…

Very simply stated fear is the absence of love.

Fear is the feeling that we are separated from our Source. The way out of fear is to focus upon love and gratitude. FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real. Most facts fueled by negative thinking can create situations which appear to be real. When we turn away from the fear and turn to God,we know…

“Trust your hopes, not your fears.” – David Mahoney

Someone once said that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. The reassurance when we are seeing a frightening movie is knowing that it is just a movie. Have you ever thought you heard a noise in the middle of the night and before you knew it, you were hearing so many noises that you vowed…
