What you say to yourself matters. Your inner communication contributes to your success or defeat. Whenever we give up and say this business doesn’t work, we are communicating from a negative frame of reference. Instead of saying this business doesn’t work, say how can I make it work. Oftentimes, we are the ones who sabotage our success. Personally speaking, I’ve cheated myself out of wonderful opportunities because I used the wrong language.
What you say to yourself can have serious, physical repercussions. If you say your marriage sucks, you’ll probably say and do things to justify that excuse. Conversely, if you say your marriage is great, your talk and actions will support that statement.
Whenever you say to yourself you can’t, your mind goes to work to confirm why you can’t. You have to watch what you say to yourself. That’s why personal development is so needful. People are naturally skeptic about business and life. So we must reprogram ourselves to release the skepticism in order to realize what’s possible for our lives.
The bible says life and death are in the power of the tongue. Those who love it will eat the fruit thereof. Too many of us have been eating the wrong fruit. Because of this, we are facing the death. We must stop speaking death to our marriages, businesses and ourselves. We deserve better so let us talk better. The words you speak can influence a self-fulfilling prophecy.
In conclusion, what you say to yourself matters. What you say has the power to support your dreams or tear them down. It is important to learn the language of success. Our language, particularly our inner speech, dictates our actions. Our actions dictate what we believe.
